Are your favorite foods doing you right?
I was diagnosed with IBS 20 years ago and since I’ve had a crappy diet for years, it’s gotten out of hand. I’m learning that there are certain foods that set it off and for the most part, I try to avoid them. But sometimes I screw up and I have to pay the price. Most of my problem is that I’m allergic to wheat products and not so much the gluten.
I don’t know if its getting old or that the world is a little more broken than it was or what but things aren’t the same as when I was a kid. I remember when they had white bread that was real and didn’t taste like it was made out of foam rubber and the sheepherder’s bread was not dry like it is today. It also didn’t affect me the way it does today. I have a sneaking suspicion that they add ingredients that aren’t real unless you get it from a reputable source. The mass produced stuff can’t be trusted.
It seems like everything has gluten or wheat in it, including soy sauce. In some respects, it could be very disheartening but to me, it creates an adventure to see if I can make a good product that I can make over and over again and even create variations of. There is no negative today.
My daughter lives in Germany and she says the food there is much different. It’s too bad we can’t have a little bit of what they have in regards to food.
My wife wants me to create a carrot cake that’s gluten free, sugar free and low carb. I don’t know if it’s possible but I’m going to work on it. That kind of thing is sold in the store but we’re back to whether it’s gmo or not.
So, when I create it, I’ll post a recipe so that you can try it in your kitchen too. It’s worth a try.
Have a great day and bon appetite!
