Going Gluten Free Is Delicious!

 

When I tell people I am gluten free, I often get those looks…you know the pity look…oh how terrible, you can’t enjoy good food!

This couldn’t be the furthest from the truth.  Eating gluten free is tasty and full of flavor and can also be good for you too!

Take a look at the pictures posted in this post!  All of them are gluten free and are just a few of the foods that I enjoyed on my first week of the gluten free 30 Day challenge!

If you missed my introduction post: Living Gluten Free: Gluten Free 30 Day Challenge, you can read it here. I have joined forces with one of my partners: Living Now (Ad), and accepted a challenge to live 100% gluten free for 30 full days.

The first week was a huge success.  My whole family enjoyed the many gluten free dishes that I prepared for them this week!

My girls especially enjoyed my homemade gluten free pasta recipe!  It was so easy to make and they loved being in the kitchen to help prepare our food!

How I Felt In Week One of The Gluten Free 30 Day Challenge

 

So I want to report how I felt on my first week of this gluten free 30 day challenge.  The first couple of days were rough.  I have no doubt that my body was detoxing from the gluten I had consumed over my mini vacation (read about that here).

The first several days I had a hangover feeling and was really tired.  Could have been exhaustion from the busy weekend trip, or it could have been my body detoxing from gluten.  I think it was a bit of both.

By the end of the first week, I started to feel a bit better.  I am looking forward to walking into week 2 of this challenge, because I know that I will start to feel better…in fact, better then I have felt in months. Detox is good, it is your body getting rid of unwanted toxins.

On a positive note, I have lost 3 pounds this week, (a healthy weight loss is 2-3 pounds a week)!  Whoot, whoot!!! :)  I have some healing to do internally so I’m not sure if the weight loss will continue, but we will see!
