I’m experimenting. For two weeks I’m going to eat gluten and dairy free. This, my friends, will be the ultimate challenge for me because I love bread (especially homemade sourdough bread) and cheese. In fact, I could survive on bread and cheese alone, with the occasional glass of wine for good measure.
Why am I doing this? Trust me, I’ve asked myself the same question repeatedly the last couple days. The truth is I’m curious to see how my body will respond to no gluten and no dairy.
I have some family members that are lactose intolerant and sensitive to gluten and while I’ve always been convinced that I have neither of these problems I’m curious to see if cutting them out of my diet will have any sort of impact on my health.
I’m also hoping that going gluten and dairy free will force me to start preparing healthier meals for us to eat. We haven’t been eating as healthily as we usually do. Lack of energy and time have been the biggest culprits, but I’m convinced that eating healthier will give me more energy.
Do you eat gluten free and/or dairy free? For the next couple weeks I’ll share with you some gluten and dairy free recipes. If you have any favourites feel free to share them in the comment section below.
