Four years ago my life changed. Four years ago a doctor told me I had to stop eating gluten. Four years ago was a hard day but here I am four years later and gluten free life is great!
In these past four years, I’ve felt healthier than ever before! Before my diagnosis I was sick, moody and constantly exhausted as I wasn’t getting any nutrients from the food I was eating. For me, eating gluten free has given me my energy back.
In these past four years, I’ve discovered so many new and exciting gluten-free foods! As there are so many things I can’t have anymore, this has encouraged me to seek new and interesting alternatives. Together, John and I have discovered a bunch of new favourite, naturally gluten-free dishes.
In these past four years, we pulled off a 100% gluten free wedding! At first I thought it was going to be impossible, but with the help of fantastic friends and family and lots of research we got our wish of a beautiful, 100% gluten-free wedding.
In these past four years, I’ve eaten gluten-free food all across the world! Four years ago I wondered if our travels could ever be the same again but I’m delighted to say that my celiac disease hasn’t stopped us from going anywhere.
In these past four years, I’ve met so many amazing fellow gluten free-ers! Through social media, gluten-free expos and my gluten-free travels, I have met so many wonderful and amazing celiacs whom I never would have met if not for our shared hatred for the gluten monster. Yay for gluten free friends!
For me at least, life is a whole lot better without gluten.
How long have you been living gluten free? How is your life better?
