That is what started a healthier life for me.
Bread was part of just about every meal. Toast or bagels with breakfast. Or cereal and milk. Sandwiches and chips for lunch. A main dish and bread or rolls and butter with dinner. Even had bread with spaghetti. Or if I thought a salad would be good, it was accompanied by bread. I actually believed that making a hot wheat or rice cereal was a healthier choice than eggs and bacon.
And all that time I thought I was doing something healthy. After all, it was healthy grains. Whole Wheat. Rye. Whole wheat and flax. Low sodium and again, thinking it was healthy.
I wasn't really concerned about putting on weight as I got older; it just happens, even when I was not eating differently. It was something to put on the back burner but not do anything about. At least I was doing well emotionally and had learned so much about myself the past few years. Much healing had already begun within myself and in my relationships.
Since going wheat free, changes are glaring. I no longer even think about bread. Believe me, if I missed it I would make wheat free bread to fill the void. But I don't miss bread or crackers or cookies. I do not feel deprived in any way. I am eating as much as I feel like eating. It just so happens that the quantity is less than I was eating before. The amount I am eating now is the correct amount for my particular body. A custom healthy diet without stress. Thank you, Dr. Davis.
Speaking of stress, these days I am calmer and have more interest in doing things instead of just barely getting by doing what I absolutely have to do. I can accomplish more and still able to do even more. My senses are jiving and swaying to the new dance without wheat. Aromas are exquisite and tastes are enjoyable beyond belief.
Before wheat free, you would have thought I owned stock in the company making TUMS I was chewing so many of them. A large bottle a week. No longer need an antacid.
Isn't it annoying when someone gets saved, or is new in their addiction recovery, or first falls in love and they are so happy they want to share it with everyone they can? I feel like I am on the preacher podium these days. I am feeling good, and I wish everyone else could feel like this. Because this is working for me and many other people, I am sharing the info here.
Sounds too good to be true, doesn't it? It is not. It is how we were meant to eat and feel.
