Why I am Happy and Thankful I live a Gluten Free Lifestyle
Yes, you read that correctly. Living a gluten free life is often thought of as a horrible prison sentence. That it is hard to find things to eat. Well, I find that it is often easier to be gluten free. Why? Because I can not make terrible impulse decisions at the store!! Today while walking through Sam's after picking up my naturally gluten free steaks, potatoes and carrots. I came across these little gems. If I was not eating gluten free I probably would have bought them. Sure they look good and probably taste good, but what I am giving up by not eating them is a lot more then taste. For starters I am giving up a bunch of empty - non nutrient - calories. Not to mention the amount of processed sugar and other chemicals that are in there!! I am giving up feeling sluggish and cranky and will not experience the sugar highs and falls. (I do not know the exact ingredients or the nutrition info I am just going off of intuition)
This is our lifestyle, embrace it - we are the lucky ones!
