|(The world is saved, I figured out how to crumb my own fish, gluten-free style!)|
I still get days like that, who doesn't? Besides, I love crumbed fish.
But that's not the problem. The thing is that I'm not focusing on the positive things about being G-free, I'm thinking about all the wrong stuff. And that hurts.
So I devised a little exercise to remind all of us of how much scope we actually have with this seemingly restrictive diet. Look at what we can eat in this weeks supermarket mailer:
I put question marks with V and the Onion soup mix because: 1) I'm not sure if the V is gluten-free, I think it's gross anyway. 2) the Maggie brand pictured contains gluten, but the Pams brand is gluten-free. Yay! Spread the word!
The only things we can eat on this page are lollies (sigh, check the ingredients), crystallised ginger and pistachios.
Canned fruit salad is G-free, but I circled Pantene shampoo... dun, dun, duh... I think it contains gluten. Gotta watch out for that shampoo. Did you know that it sometimes contains hydrolyzed wheat protein (aka, gluten)? Evil. I tell ya.
So, that's a little tour of my supermarket mailer. It was a really fun thing to do and made me remember how blessed I am to be able to eat dairy, meat and veggies.
Until next time, focus on what you can eat, not on what you can't.
