Week 1

Hi there!

So, after looking through the amount of food in my house that has gluten in, this gluten free diet is sounding pretty daunting/depressing.... However, I will stick to it as strictly as I can and persevere. I might even lose a couple of pounds in the process so win, win, sort of.

My symptoms are the same so far but I notice I'm getting some really bad stomach pains. This could just be something else though but it's worth recording it anyway. I will publish then edit this as I go along so that my blogging stays fairly regular. Please excuse the 'not-so-professional' way I've added the photos, I'm still getting the hang of this thing so bear with me!

Drinks: 2 cups of tea (milk and 1 sugar), 2 glasses of orange juice, 1 glass of coke, 1 cup of hot choc and a glass of water

Brunch: 1 bowl of baked beans (about half a tin). I couldn't have them on toast because there's gluten in the bread we have and the cereal in the house had gluten in :(

Snack: Half a bag of minstrels

Tea: Beef stew with mixed veg.

Supper: 3 small toasted pancakes with butter (naughty, I know but I was starving!)

Thursday 17/01/2013

Drinks: 2 cups of tea (milk and one sugar), 1 glass of orange juice, 1 glass of coke and 1 chocolate milkshake

Breakfast: 1 bowl of baked beans with grated red leicester cheese.

Lunch: 1 bowl of beef stew with mixed veg

Tea: McDonalds cheeseburger, chicken nuggets and fries (no food in house)

Friday 18/01/2013

Drinks: 1 glass of water, 2 cups of tea, 1 glass of orange juice, 1 cup of hot chocolate, 1 glass of coke and 1 glass of orange squash

Breakfast: Nothing. I woke up late and there were no gluten free breakfast things in the house.

Lunch: Chicken dippers. After checking the ingredients it turned out they used a different flour so no gluten!

Tea: Piri piri chicken and rice

Supper: 2 pieces of fried chicken. There was no gluten free things left and I was starving! At least I'm cutting down...

Saturday 19/01/2013

Today is a bad day. My moods are all over the place and getting around hurts because I'm so achy and dizzy.

Drinks: 1 cup of tea, 1 glass of orange juice, 2 glasses of coke.

Breakfast: Again, no breakfast-y items and I woke up late.

Lunch: 1 bowl of chicken soup

Tea: Roast chicken with stuffing, green beans and gravy

Ok, so I'm going to have to just keep to cutting down on gluten (rather than giving it up entirely) until my partner and I can get to the shops. It is very snowy here and so cold I can't stand being out for more than a few minutes. I will keep you posted!
