Gluten Free Anniversary!

Its my 6 month anniversary of havHold-the-Glutening zero gluten in my body. It feels great. At times its been tough but the more I learn the easier it becomes. New products, new recipes, new restaurants with gfree offerings help alot and now I very rarely miss it.

I still do sometimes. I love the smell of a freshly baked crusty bread. Thinking of smearing butter on that and devouring it is amazing. But, I can’t. The closest thing I have had to that experience is the French Baguette from Suzie’s Gluten Free Kitchen, and it was wonderful. I’ll have to go back again soon and pick up a loaf.

I’m not really celebrating this milestone, but I did make a gfree lemon meringue pie on the weekend (for no real reason, other than to eat it lol) so maybe that was my celebration. I’ll post a recipe here tomorrow for that. I think I really nailed it with the rice flour crust!

Is there anything you really miss since becoming gluten free?

  1. Congrats on going 6-months strong! I’ve been at it for a little over a year now and I have to say….the smell of fresh baguettes still drives me crazy! I don’t think that will ever go away! But giving up gluten is worth it and has been the best decision I’ve ever made for myself!

    • Thanks! Before this I have been gluten free 6 days of the week (with one cheat day) for 9 additional months but that wasnt solving my problems. Being completely gfree for the past 6 months has been fantastic! I think baguette will always be trouble for us gfree folks LOL Do you live in Niagara? You should contact Suzie’s Gluten Free Bakery. Its around 4 or 5 for a baguette and it tastes mindblowingly incredible. JUST like a regular piece of baguette!

      • Hey! No, I don’t live in Niagara, but I’m relatively close (Toronto area)! I read your review of Suzie’s and it’s definitely something I’m looking forward to trying when the weather is warmer and I head to your area! I haven’t had much luck with breads as of late — just one that I enjoy and it’s not hugely available!
