A Milestone I Never Thought I Would Reach

A Milestone I Never Thought I Would Reach

This past week I reached a huge milestone for my health.  Honestly, it is one I was not sure I would ever reach.  So what was it?

January 2024 was the first month in 2+ years that I was not exposed to gluten.  This may or may not seem like a big deal but for me, getting exposed to gluten and getting sick had just become part of my normal routine - and it sucked.  

So how did I hit this milestone? I was reflecting on this with my husband this week.  We came up with a few ideas of what could have helped, and I want to share them with you.

  • I think I have become more clear with ordering when out to eat
  • I cook a lot at home
  • I rely on the foods & restaurants that I trust
  • Sometimes I cook my own food when we are at someone’s house
  • I pack snacks
  • I vet places before I go to them & I have no problem saying no if I do not feel comfortable

I share this all with you because this is all hard.  These are things that have taken me 5+ years to figure out.  So if you are struggling with or just starting your gluten free / celiac / food allergy / intolerance journey please know you are not alone.  It is a process and it is a hard one. 

Please reach out with any questions you may have.
