Hello Everyone!

  
What
Where


You may have noticed (or probably not…) that I’ve been using a lot of gluten-free recipes recently. I’ve been having stomach problems for over two years now, and after seeing several conventional doctors who could only diagnose me with Acid Reflux (aka heartburn…) I finally took the advice of my friend, Caroline, and went to see a holistic doctor.

She’d suggested going several times before, but I was finally pushed over the edge when I read a post by Chelsey talking about her experience with a doctor here in Chicago and how he’s helped her with similar problems.

I had my first appointment about a week and a half ago and after doing several tests, including a muscle reflex test, he told me that I am probably intolerant to several types of wheat (basically gluten), soy, white sugar and pasteurized milk.

I’m going back weekly and taking supplements, so we’ll see how it goes. But cutting these foods out of my diet is the first and most important step!

Do you have any idea how many food products have soy in them? I sure didn’t… haha. I keep finding things in my kitchen with soy products in it! At least my brother and sister-in-law are enjoying all the stuff I keep bringing them so it doesn’t go to waste…



Gluten, however, is pretty easy at home since I didn’t eat much in the first place and there are plenty of other flours I can use. What’s really going to hurt is going out to eat! When I went to Trivia Night with the Kappa Delta Alumnae last week, I had to order that salad because (after removing the croutons and asking for balsamic vinegar as a dressing) it was the only thing on the menu I could eat!

I didn’t want to share this all with you immediately because it was pretty overwhelming (and still is!) and I wanted some time to wrap my mind around it. Also, I’ve decided to just deal with this day by day. Thinking about not eating gluten or soy for the rest of my life sends me into a mental frenzy and get’s me tearing up, so I’m sticking to how I’m going to deal with it today, and this week.

 

On a lighter note, Molly has her final exam for puppy school tomorrow night!!! She’s been practicing very hard and is apparently the smartest dog in class! My brother, however, thinks she is going to fail the test for not jumping up on people… I agree. She just gets too excited!

Here’s her amazing “Roll Over” ability:

How do you handle overwhelming news? Have you ever been to see a holistic or unconventional doctor?

If anyone out there is living gluten or soy free, I’d love any advice! P.S. did you notice I finally gave in to pinterest?
