Since my post last week, I haven’t had one (known) ingestion of gluten. I nearly at some tortilla chips that I assumed were safe but after a second pass at the ingredient statement, I found some white flour. To spite my faux disease, I ate a few bites of the complementary salsa with a spoon. The toughest part has been having to pass on some very tasty sweets that came my way. I sat by somewhat sullen as I watched my wife enjoy them without me.
Since, I rediscovered millet and quinoa, two great gluten free, whole grain staples as part of my GF regime, I seem to have gotten into a culinary rut with them. They’re delicious, but I’ve had quinoa/millet, beans and salad for several nights in a row. These things suit my pallet, they’re healthy, they fill me up and I know they’re safely free of gluten. I’ve enjoyed the simplicity of this repetition but I’m a little bored with it. I’m also a little tired of studying upon everything so much.
Do any of you find yourselves in ruts of comfort with familiar gf foods that you know you can trust? Is safe and boring just easier in the long run?
