Day three of going gluten free is complete.
I'm learning a lot. I've never been one to count calories, but thank God for the handy dandy scanner with the myfitnesspal app on my phone. One scan-a-roo and bam! Food logged!
I'm not even missing gluten. I do feel more energized already. And I swear I'm peeing a lot more. I have no major complaints other than I wish we had a Wegman's near by. Don't get me wrong, I'm not going to buy a product just because it says "Gluten Free" or "GF".... but I'd like to make some homemade meatballs this week or a meatloaf and I can't seem to find gluten free breadcrumbs. I'll stop off at a natural food store. There is a rumor though that a Wegman's is coming.
I stopped off at my local Giant today after my workout. I had inquired about a GF section in the store and they had said that all food is mixed in with the "normal food" (HA!). The bagger gal was telling me how her mother went GF and lost a SIGNIFICANT amount of weight just by giving up the gluten and walking a little bit more - no major changes - but her RA improved and her weight went down.
I'm also looking into the idea of bento boxes. A dear friend of mine uses them, and it seems so fun!
