So yeah I have Celiacs...

I got the phone call from the specialist's office just as we were about to slice into a cake at work the other day because that is Murphy's law.

I have spent most of the weekend researching and purchasing things I can eat.

TBH, I don't think it's going to be that bad. 

A little bit of a healthy lifestyle change which is always a good thing.

My sister also has it (main reason I got checked, not that I noticed any major symptoms, at least nothing I initially contributed to this) so she has been a huge help in guiding me.

I made my first gluten free pizza this weekend and my husband actually did not notice a difference.

I also picked up lots of fruits, veggies, and yogurt this weekend and made a pot of chili and rice.

Eating out is going to be the major prob, because of cross-contamination.

I think I experienced this already when I ate out over the weekend and ordered something fried.

But from what I have read up on, almost 95% of food we eat can be made gluten free.

I was also advised to stay away from GF products in general, unless a special treat. They are super pricy and usually packed with additives.

So this is my "news".

Loving that I finally have a short week though.

We will be headed into Manhattan Wednesday night to watch them blow up the parade balloons and then we are traveling north to see the fam for a couple days.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
