Your Gluten Free Shopping List8:00 PM
I am sure you have all heard of the whole "Gluten Free" diet, bur for some it is a way of life. Like me for instance. I have pretty severe seasonal allergies as well as eczema. Eliminating gluten has helped alleviate a lot of the discomfort caused from my allergies. I do battle with eczema every day but is not nearly as bad when I eat gluten. If I take a bite of pasta or bread the reaction is almost instantaneous. Redness and itchiness around my mouth, patches on my eye lids, hands, etc. If I eat more then a bite I will break out in hives and have to get on prednisone. It is because of this fad and me wanting to read more into this gluten free lifestyle that has helped me figure out the trigger. Last November I lived with chronic hives for 3 months when I read an article about how gluten is an accelerator to even the most common allergy. You can have a minor grass allergy and just by eating gluten can cause minor symptoms to go haywire. If this is you, give it a try and see how it makes you feel! :)
So you have decided to give this a try...And now your thinking what do I buy? Is gluten free food even good? etc. etc. I was the same way. I have done a lot of trial and error and have compiled a sort of shopping list of what I think is yummy! A lot of these foods you can't even tell the difference, and in the long run I would rather be comfortable then eating a slice of bread.
