Gluten-Free Anniversary #6

I was driving the other day when I realized that I completely missed my 6-year gluten-free anniversary!  I didn’t just miss it by a day, either.  I missed it by several.  Today is January 20th and the day of the anniversary is January 12th.  Ooops!  I have learned so much over the past 6 years and feel much more comfortable with my lifestyle than I did in the beginning.

Some of the most important things I have learned are:

  • There are way more things that I can eat, than can’t.
  • Even after 6 years, I still make mistakes.
  • There is life after being diagnosed with Celiac Disease and starting the gluten-free diet.
  • The selection of gluten-free foods in grocery stores is much better now than it was 6 years ago.
  • Even with all of the publicity the gluten-free diet has been getting, some people still look at me like I have 2 heads when I ask if they have a gluten-free menu.
  • The gluten-free diet isn’t necessarily a healthy or an unhealthy diet; your diet is what you make it.  There are plenty of healthy & unhealthy gluten-free foods out there, just like every other diet.
  • Focusing on friends and family at gatherings is way more productive & feels better than focusing on the food, whether I can eat it or not.

One of the foods I have missed most since going gluten-free was not one that I ate on a regular basis before, but it was a nice treat – Jelly Donuts.  Up until recently, there were really no replacements out there.  Katz Gluten-Free has changed that!  I was able to sample & review their new doughnuts and was very pleased!  You can read my full review here.  Katz is once again holding a Grand Raffle where the winner will receive a “Box of Each Item” box.
