An Exciting Gluten-Free Diet

Here’s a news article I just saw:

A Gluten-Free Diet Doesn’t Have to be Boring

If I were writing this one, I think I would have subtitled it: Thank-you, Captain Obvious!

Okay, I’m done snarking now, I promise.

What I liked about this one, after I got over the whole “Duh!” response, was that it painted a very positive picture of being gluten-free.  I liked how it emphasized buying real, unprocessed foods and preparing your favorite dishes yourself.

Those of us who have been at this for a while, if we think waaaay back to when we first started, a gluten-free diet was a bit of a scary proposition.  I already did most of my own cooking, but I can remember feeling a little overwhelmed.  And the first time I made pizza, I was pretty scared.  “What if it’s horrible?”  Well, it wasn’t, it was pretty darn good.  And with practice it’s gotten even better.

So to anyone who is newly gluten-free out there, please take a deep breath, relax, and repeat after me:

“It’s going to be okay.”

Really, it is! 

And if you have any specific questions, please feel free to ask them in the comments below.
