Nuitrition Tuesday-Gluten Free

So I have a skin disorder called keratosis pilaris (KP) or commonly known as chicken skin. It’s Bumpy skin on upper arms and legs. I’ve been told that it could be because of a gluten intolerance. So I’m going to try a gluten free diet and see if I feel any better and if my skin starts looking any better. This means no wheat, rye or barley. At first I am even going to cut out my Spelt for now and then if I see a difference in myself then I will try adding it back into my diet later and see if I start feeling sluggish again and my skin acting up. So next week I will have a gluten free recipe for you to try at home. 

Until then I would love to hear from anybody else that lives on a gluten free diet.

  1. My best friend is gluten-intolerant, and it's really not that bad! You can pretty much make wheat-free substitutes for any baked good! There are some great GF recipie blogs out there, too. When she went GF, I realized all of the wheat products I eat… They're also super expensive! You can save a lot if money by not buying bread, poptarts, ice cream sandwiches…

    My two tips: get a buddy, and read labels. The buddy will help, because after a while you will probably get pretty annoyed when people eat bread in front if you. So frustrating! Labels, because a LOT of stuff has gluten in it! Even things like corn tortillas have gluten added… And, of course, beer.


  2. I am on a gluten and dairy free diet… I can tell you that gluten-free is pretty easy compared to dairy-free.

    My recommendations: Udi's bread (whole grain, yum!) and Ancient Harvest (corn and quinoa) pasta. And because I really don't like the taste of rice flour, I use almond flour.

    I thought it was difficult at first, but now it's second nature. (And I bake more than I ever did before!).


  3. I saw your post on Susan B. Anderson's site and popped over to see your blog. I am a knitter but also really into cooking. When I saw your post about needing gluten free recipes, I automatically thought of this blog. http://www.crockpot365.blogpot.com This lady used her crock pot/slow cooker every day in 2008 (I think) and then wrote a cook book. I believe all her recipes on her blog and in her book are gluten free since that is how her family eats. I hope you find this helpful. Your blog and knitting are lovely…
