Yes, after the holidays and eating a little bit of bad stuff here and there, I have decided that I am going to remain wheat-free. My belly can’t handle it anymore, it honestly can’t. I thought “If I just eat a little here and a little there I’ll be ok.” Yeah, not even close! Eric – who doesn’t believe this kind of thing – has admitted (again) that it really does bother him too.
Food and meals are a frustrating thing for me. I am trying to do better for us, but change comes hard. We are a serial snacking crowd and it’s hard to get everyone on board. It wouldn’t be so hard if the hubby fully cooperated, but he finds it difficult to do that completely, as he doesn’t “believe” a lot of things. Me and my “hippy” ways humor him. LOL I’ll just keep trying and definitely keep it up for myself. My belly feels sick for days after I eat anything with wheat and even most grains. It’s not a good feeling and tired of feeling so blah because of it!
Today I’m going to make some more almond flour. That stuff is pricey, but you can get a lot of almonds at Sam’s Club and just make your own almond flour/meal. I found a bread recipe I want to try and a biscuit recipe I also want to try. I had tried THIS biscuit recipe last week and while they were fluffy and nice looking, you could taste the coconut flour in them. Eric has coconut radar and just couldn’t even eat them. It was the slightest hint of coconut, but enough to turn make him not want to eat them. So I’m going to try that other biscuit recipe today. While I miss bready things (a little), I don’t miss what it does to me!
Really I’m just trying to find some good recipes that are husband approved so MAYBE I can get him off ALL bad things. Most likely not, but I can hope, right? 🙂
I must get busy making some almond flour and working on dinner. Today seems like such a great day for some sirloin tip gravy over biscuits!
