Weekend Mornings & Less Sensitive
I started off my Saturday morning with
enough coffee to be bouncing off the walls a glorious cup of coffee.
I’ve reviewed a dozen coffees from TJ’s to Starbucks to flavored Smores Coffee
Skylar loves the bread here.
I used to love it.
Now, White Chocolate Blondies with Chocolate Peanut Butter Frosting, well I’ll gladly sit down to those.
If I am going to push the gluten envelope, it’s going to be in dessert form.
Gina recently posted about decreased gluten sensitivity after giving her tummy a rest from it, too.
In a nutshell, after five years of being strictly gluten free (and vegan) and healing my gut with fermented foods like:
homemade coconut milk kefir (make it on your countertop, so easy!)
and probiotics (I order them from iHerb.com and to save $5 off your iHerb.com order use code: AVE630 Stock up on your stevia, protein powder, nutritional yeast, supplements and more while you’re at it. Never pay retail again.)
I do believe my gut can tolerate small amounts of gluten now that it’s healed, but I am careful not to overdo it and end up where I spend many, many years of my life which was in GI distress.
Food allergies, gut health, gluten sensitivity, and how everyone’s body works is all so individual and it’s lots of trial and error to find what works for you is my best advice.
Also, some would disagree with this line of thought in entirely and in no way am I suggesting what I do will work for others or that you should do it. Clearly I wasn’t Celiac and people who are, can should never have gluten again, period. I’m simply sharing my own personal experience and because I’ve been receiving lots of emails about it, I thought I’d mention it.
These pancakes don’t have gluten and they’re vegan
And my Microwave Blueberry Banana Oat Cakes are GF and vegan.
You can also make them without blueberries, the original Microwave Banana Oat Cakes, and jut add nut butter.
From my last post about the Fantastic Food Finds from the past week, I’m glad you enjoyed those. So many amazing bloggers with so many awesome recipes. If it wasn’t so hot here, I’d be more inclined to turn on my oven and bake but for now, I can just drool.
If you missed that post or it didn’t show up in your Google Reader, sorry about that. Something went haywire with WordPress and the date and timestamp it tried to give the post.
1. How do you like to start off your weekend mornings? Or any morning?
Brush my teeth, wash my face, make the bed, and hug my pumpkin. Oh yes, and coffee.
2. Do you have any thoughts about the decreased gluten sensitivity issue over time?
Or, the same thing could be asked for other allergies/sensitvities/intolerances from soy to nightshades or even to pollen and ragweed.
Do you think that a person can become less sensitive to things as time goes on, or not really?
I know that I am more sensitive to certain things as time passes like certain smells that used to bug me now really irritate me like bus exhaust, diesel fumes, or cigarette smoke. I’m more sensitive to those things the older I get.
3. Doing anything fun or exciting this weekend?
I hope so!
I’m off to the beach!
