Welcome to my gluten-free corner of the world. :)



I have been thinking about what I would say in my first blog entry.  There are so many ideas floating through my head, I want to eventually get to each and every one of them, but here goes with my first thoughts about what I want this page to be.

First, I have started this blog so that I will be accountable to each and every one of you reading this.  I have to walk the walk, so to speak and although I feel that I am very committed to this lifestyle change,  there may be times that I waiver.  I am only human after all and I know that this will help me stay focused on my journey – with your help, of course!

There are so many gluten free blogs & facebook pages out there and I credit them with giving me the idea to start my own.  They all have really wonderful, useful and intriguing  information and they help me find recipes and encouragement each day.  I feel that blogging my experiences will in turn help others and will bolster my dedication to staying gluten free.  I don’t look at this as a “DIET”.  It is not.  It is a way of life. One, that in order for me to reach optimal health, I must follow for the rest of my life.  It sounds simple.  I know it is not.  I will stumble.  I may fall.  But I intend to always get up, dust myself off and continue on.

I will post more in the coming days and weeks about my journey to this point.  I will blog about how I discovered that I had a problem with gluten/sugar, what challenges I have faced in the past and the challenges that present themselves along the way.  And finally, I will  share my hopes for the future living gluten free in a gluten saturated world.

I am excited because I already have several people who are willing to share their experiences on this blog as well as yummy recipes they have found and a few they have developed themselves.  It takes a village and you are my village.  I am hoping this virtual community will help bolster the journey that each and every one of us are traveling and hopefully make it just a little bit easier along the way.

So I will end this first blog post with a promise to you.  I promise to be honest and up front about my experiences.  I will share thoughts and insights about my struggles and my triumphs.  And if one of you can glean something good from that then I would say I have accomplished something very good indeed.

Until next time,
