A Gluten-free Message in a Bottle
When I started thinking of this post, Message in a Bottle by The Police immediately started on repeat in my head. (Funny, songs appropriate to melodramatic moments often do that for me. It’s kinda like having my own traveling gong-show in my head.)
Last week, a few things in my life seemed to be on their way to colliding into a dietary train wreck. Today, well, I’m sending out a bit of an SOS.
Imagine taking on the challenge of being sugar-free, gluten-free, and yeast-free while also eating a diet that is thyroid-friendly (plenty of iodine), high in iron (to correct anemia), and low in foods that cause acid-reflux. Oh, and caffeine and alcohol are off the table too.
What the heck would you eat???
As a vegan, not for one moment have I ever felt deprived of choices about what to eat. There’s an amazing bounty of foods to be had. But when you have to cut out even some of the most healthy foods (I mean, come on! Blueberries contribute to acid reflux?!?), what’s left to enjoy?
So here’s me tossing my message in a bottle to all you gals and guys: send me all your gluten-free lovelies. Show me the way to gluten-free bliss. Give me your recipes, ideas, thoughts, anything gluten-free and vegan-friendly. And easy gets bonus brownie points too!
In the meantime, I’ll get down to my own sleuthing and (im)patiently wait for Kittee’s new xgfx zine. There’s gonna be serious bagel making when I get my hands on her pumpkin bagels recipe.
