It’s not really-gluten free’s fault. I get in this trap anyway, but I’ve been gluten free for over two months now and I’m finding that I’m starting to just eat the same foods that I know are safe over and over again. Indian and Thai food have become a favorite staple. Once a week I get a gluten-free pizza from Vito’s in Wethersfield.
I’m cooking the same foods—a sausage and kale soup, a cabbage soup (thank you to my clients for giving me these recipes). They are delicious, but I’ve been eating a lot of them. Gluten-free muffins are a regular at my breakfast table. I’ve always eaten muffins, but it used to feel more varied because I had so many types of muffins to choose from. I’ve only found two gluten-free ones that I like that I can buy in a store. I’ve eaten more nuts, apples and bananas than I want to think about. And I’m eating a lot more meat than I used to.
It’s really not that hard of a diet. There are just some days that feel tough. This is one of those days where I am missing certain things like a pizza, a good grinder and my family’s signature nutmeg muffins. And what’s for dinner at my house tonight? Cabbage soup.
