I feel better today thank goodness. I didn’t get out of bed for Yoga this morning but that was vanity – my hair still looked good from my appointment yesterday and I didn’t want to get it all hot and mussed up ha ha – Yoga tonight though to make up for it.
Nothing to report food wise – I had a good day – no glutening – no starving moments because I remembered to pack snacks AND I went out for lunch with my HOD to a place I know I can eat at. OOh! I forgot – I tried my first Kombucha tea. It was yummy. BUT I didn’t like the snotty little piece of ‘mother’ (maybe?) floating around in it – was a bit gross – but I get the impression that it was meant to have been strained a wee bit more carefully because Katy’s didn’t have any snotty bits.
Today I got my first email from I Quit Sugar; my week one shopping list, meal plan and recipes and all the other stuff you need to set up. Had a happy twenty minutes printing everything off and binding it and sorting out clear-files – I do like a little play with stationary. The recipes look good and varied – and all can be adapted to not have gluten and dairy – although I might have to find substitutes for the salads etc for the first wee bit, until I start to re-introduce raw food.
Anyway – even if you are not doing the 8 week plan the website is a mine of information for recipes, low fructose/high fructose info and she has a couple of e-books with recipes etc that aren’t going to break the bank. Here is the link;
and here are some other pages I have saved or sites I look at occasionally;
- Coeliac Disease New Zealand Facebook page, closed group but they’ll let you join if you are gluten intolerant or coeliac.
- One Lovely Life blog
- Cave Girl NZ blog
- How to stock your fridge – Clean eating online
- Jonni’s recipe page on pinterest
- A buzzfeed page of 23 gluten free soups – they all click through to yummy looking blogs!
- The Nutrition Guru and the Chef – lots of GF and DF recipes
- Simple Green Smoothies – the name speaks for itself
- A buzzfeed page of Mason Jar salads – again with links to good sites.
My Facebook feed is so full of stuff about food now I am almost getting food fatigue! The coeliac disease group is great – I can be in the stupidmarket and ask about an ingredient and one of the members will have answered me within minutes! It’s great. And it’s good to know that other people out there are struggling with this stuff – it’s not just me! I thought I was really special needs when I started to list off the things that I would be avoiding in order to heal thyself, but there are a lot of people who have coeliacs like me and and other things as well. It’s really supportive – and it means less whinging to my friends and family! So lucky you guys 😉
This grrl seems really cool – she has a blog (way more fancy than mine!) and has lots of great info on it – I can only aspire to be as ‘bloggy cool’ as her.
Anyways… I’m off to sort out my shopping for the week, and to see if I can wrangle the GD in to cooking dinner while I go to the mall…
