gluten and dairy free diet week three

im not sure how much longer we can be friends....
so yesterday marked my third week into this dairy and gluten free diet...however i may have had a slip...it is just a possibility that at the gallery cafe on saturday, i may have had a sandwich due to pure starvation (and lack of enticing gluten free menu options). however it was sort of a blessing in disguise because after i ate it....i felt fine. great actually. so i thought to myself hmmmmmm how about i call this week experimentation week....meaning that i will slowly and carefully monitor how my body reacts to small doses of gluten and dairy. so that is what this week is called. i will be experimenting with gluten and dairy to see how my body reacts because let's be serious, i don't really want to be without either delicious ingredient forever. so my intolerant body and i had to make a compromise. for this week i bought goat cheese (sometimes it is generally just cows milk products people react to so this may be a good substitute), some pretzels and rye bread. its a slow start i am not going to dive into a bowl of mac n cheese or anything just yet but i will keep you informed and on that note here are some of my reactions thus far.

  • cafe blt sandwich went down well with no reactions to report
  • sunday bagel with lite cream cheese went down badly....heartburn for hours after....not cool 
  • a starbucks lactose free hot mocha seemed to agree with moi.....but 7 dollars spent at starbucks for one of those fall beverages did not agree with my wallet
let's see how this week goes shall we??
