Well, I just can't believe how good 40 feels.....well, actually it's no coincidence, my gluten free diet has settled like a warm blanket into my body. I am healthier than I have been in years. All of my pain is gone (except the ankle and that's just going to take time and has nothing to do with my disease and everything to do with, well, turning 40). I am so blessed to be able to feel better simply by the foods I eat and the foods that I don't eat. It only bothers me a little that I didn't have a birthday cake yet but my mother is going to make me a GF pound cake tomorrow.
Speaking of gluten free flours, I went into a little natural merchantile last week for the first time. It's 3 miles down the road, I have lived out here in the Western part of the county for nine years and have never gone in. And as I walked into this store, which smelled just like a health food store in a 100 year old building and reminded me of Whole Oats in Boulder. Amazing how smell can bring back memories....there is still a Suave mousse that if I smell it, it reminds me of being stood up on New Year's Eve when I was 16. Anyway, I was pointed to a golden bag of GF flour, Authentic Foods Multi Blend Flour as one of the best by the store's sweet and kind owner. So, right now, I am cooking up a loaf of banana bread and it smells wonderful......more later.
