If you have been following my journey over this last week on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter, you will know that I am now a fully fledged gluten and dairy free fairy, and I have to say, it hasn’t been as difficult as I thought it would be.
Not that I haven’t had some pitfalls as times, I’ve been out and about, with a very empty tummy, not knowing where to turn, and a couple of the recipes I have tried have been far from perfect. But on the whole, I’ve been satisfied, still enjoyed my food, and most importantly, my symptoms of bowel pain and fatigue have already greatly improved (except for the weekend tummy bug!).
So, here are a few highlights from my first week of going gluten and dairy free. Hope it can help some of you to feel inspired to make changes for the better.
So thats my first week of gluten and dairy free and I’m excited about cooking more and this new change. I do sometimes feel a bit sad about not eating a little dairy milk bar again, or gorging my face on fudge and ice cream when in Cornwall in the summer, but its a small sacrifice to pay for feeling brighter (I won’t say better just yet but slowly heading in that direction!). I’m also still nervous of eating out but we are going to try it this week for mothers day 🙂 and you can be sure I will report back to you!
I’m really keen to hear from others of any recommendations they have about being gluten and dairy free, with some good quick recipes and good healthy emergency snacks!
