A few months back when my skin was at its worse, I decided that I had enough with waiting for my body to right itself. It was time to take a more drastic approach. I eliminated dairy, sugar and wheat from my diet completely. At first I was in a state of constant hunger but I adapted. I learned that I could deal with the lack of dairy and even sugar. The wheat was another story. I love bread. I do not even really like food but I really do love bread. I was definitely experiencing withdrawal.
Fast forward one month and I had yet to notice a significant improvement in my appearance so I decided to reintroduce the long lost dairy, sugar and wheat into my diet. My body welcomed the dairy and sugar back with open arms. This was not the case with the wheat. Perhaps reintroducing wheat in the form of a rich pasta dinner was not the wisest choice I have been known to make.
I have cheated. I have paid the price. I cannot have wheat. Life goes on but whenever I see a fresh baguette I cry a little on the inside. Okay perhaps I am being a tad dramatic.
Luckily there are options for those who share my hardship. Some better than others. A couple of months ago I discovered a great wheat free brownie option. I am convinced that even my Husband liked it until I let him in on the wheat free secret. It was a natural progression to purchase the chocolate chip counterpart. I only assumed that it would be just as good, perhaps even better than the brownie mix. I was wrong.
They may not look awful, but believe me they are. If you have any suggestions for a great wheat free cookie option, please do tell...
