Going GF

Going GF, or gluten free, has taken quite a bit of my thoughts lately.  Ava & I have been trying to support Dan in this crazy disease, so we purged our kitchen of all traditional flour, as a start.  We still have 1 brownie mix for the sweets for the RS activity, but that’s about it.  I can handle using the GF mixes for baking as most of the time it comes out even better than the normal– nuttier with zesty flavors.

The hardest part is the dining out.  At my heart I wanted Noodles on 28 tonight, but Dan wanted to try a GF listed restaurant.  Opus, this GF restaurant, was delicious with GF foccacia, pizza and pasta.  I don’t regret going there, but I hate that some of my favorite eateries aren’t even an option any more due to cross contamination.

    If you stick to higher end eateries, you will find that they are very supportive of GF issues.

    We learnt that while living in the US.

    When I attended a singles ward many years ago, we had a sister in the ward whose gluten issues were so bad, she would have to bring a piece of gluten-free bread for the sacrament. She would place it in a plastic bag to avoid contamination with the regular bread.

    I can only imagine how difficult it must be to eat gluten free. I’m not sure I could survive a gluten-free diet. I love bread too much!
