One problem with having my son eat a gluten-free diet this week was that I bought him lots of gluten-free snacks and goodies. They had avoids in them, especially for me, but were tempting as they wouldn't make me terribly sick like gluten does. So, I ate some. The downfall was some cinnamon rolls I discovered. It had been so long since I had a cinnamon roll, so I helped him eat one. Well, more than one. It still wasn't worth it, and I still got a little sick from it. If I'm going to eat carbs, I'll make sure they are neutral ingredients. I'd never be tempted to eat them, if I could just get more organized to shop and cook foods that are good for me. Sometimes I still skip meals, and it's not good. Either I end up weak and dizzy, or I end up eating carbs, or both. I've got to make nourishment a higher priority.
My son has been eating well though, at dinner he begged for avocados, and ate lots of watermelon, strawberries, artichokes, lots of good things for A's. He also had some bread with gluten, and that was a few hours ago. So far, no reaction. That would be a relief. He's eaten a more varied and healthy diet without the bread though, I think there's something to that. I don't want bread to be part of his routine, even if he is a secretor and doesn't have celiac disease. It replaces too many fresh, healthy foods.
