I have been trying to eat properly. Doing things like actually having something to eat before 11 in the morning. In order to do this I have been making smoothies. Mmmm Mmmm! They are so good, and easy too! And boy do they fill the gap. No lethargic feeling right after I eat either. In fact I have been eliminating gluten based products from my diet for the last couple weeks and I sure have noticed an increase in my energy level.
So Randy and I (mostly I) have decided to do an experiment and do gluten free for 2 months to see what if anything changes. I read the book "Wheat Belly", and to be honest have not before now put too much store behind gluten free living unless you are celiac or have an allergy to wheat. But according to this book there are quite a few "ailments" that can be attributed to gluten consumption. So I started today and like I said, we shall see. In particular I am curious about Randy's inflammatory issues. For me it is the tiredness I feel at the end of the day or right after lunch.
Now this may be tough because bread based products are very easy to throw together at the end of the day for a quick meal. But I feel this can be done. It just takes a little planing because as you all know, I am very Busy, Busy, Busy!
