We are approaching the end of the year, which to many means making a resolution or compiling a list of activities to complete by the year’s end. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – I can’t stand resolutions. I am not against them. I don’t despise them. But I am not very good at following through on them. Too much pressure. However, this year, I am using the new year as a launch point to start something. It’s not a resolution. It may not happen for the entire year, but we’re going to give it a go.
For almost a decade, I lived a fairly gluten free life. College happened, moving into an apartment, and well, it was easier (and cheaper) to “cheat.” Flash forward and my knees started to hurt. Then my teeth rebelled on me. Things were not right. So January 1, 2012, we are cracking down again. Why? To see if the swelling in my knees stops (yes, gluten can cause this) and to see if the pH in my mouth balances out (because this is also a side effect of gluten).
I am sharing this because this is a blog about food. If you look through my recipes, most are gluten free anyway. But I don’t have any intentions of making things that you can’t mimic in your own kitchen with regular good old flour.
Here’s to a new project starting in 2012.
