Goal #5 eat less gluten.
I have done elimination diets a number of times in the past and I have come to the conclusion that a small amount of gluten doesn’t bother me however large amounts cause me to fell bloated, have a hard time losing weight and am often exhausted. As you can see from that list those are all things I DON’T want. That being said it’s time to make a change and reduce my gluten intake.
What I will be doing: Eating more gluten-free foods
- Whole Grains (buckwheat, gluten-free oats, corn, rice, quinoa, amaranth, teff or millet)
- Nuts and nut butters
- Fresh fruit
- Fresh vegetables
- Herbs and spices
I will be replacing pasta with a gluten-free version, enjoying brown rice wraps instead of bread and enjoying more whole grains, vegetables and fruit.
What I won’t be doing:
- Giving up gluten all together, especially things like Neil and I’s monthly homemade flatbreads and beer.
