Gluten-free Monday: A Lent without Gluten

So, this is not the first Lent when I have been gluten-free.  Both Lent and gluten-free can be frustrating on their own, how to survive the double-whammy?  And this year, I decided to revive my old standby sacrifice, sweets.

Well, it truly sucks to have skip deep-fried foods, including fried and breaded fish.  At times, it does feel like I’m living on cheese.  OK, so there is a reward.  😀  Of course, it is only Friday that is the bad day, but still, no meat, no bread.  I definitely find myself falling back on gluten-free substitutes, like rice crackers, gluten-free breads, corn products.  It also makes me realize how much I’ve come to rely on candy as a source of carbs–I like my chubby little tummy.

Of course, this is all so First World Problems.  I’m glad I have enough awareness of food and health to understand my food sensitivities and allergies, and I have the option to make voluntary diet selections, skipping things I just don’t like or I don’t feel like eating or that I exclude for a philosophical or religious purpose.

Having said that, if I lived in a lot of places, I would likely never know I was gluten sensitive because I wouldn’t be exposed to it very much, if at all.  First World Problems.

Well, there is plenty to eat in the fridge.  Yeah, it sucks I can’t have bacon in my grits on Friday mornings, but I’ll survive.  Until Saturday.  Snrt.

To a bit of creative thinking, in the kitchen or out.
