Isn’t it all so interesting?
The only wheat I’ve had (unless it was hidden in a restaurant dish, I have eaten Asian, etc a few times) since September 2010 were the two”bits” of matzah I was required to eat last year at the two Seders.
This year I found some gluten free matzah. The sad thing is, it says kosher for Passover but not for use for religious purposes. I feel that Gd wanted us to live through the commandments and not be made sick by them. I will use the gluten free matzah anyway. The only night I had acid reflux was the first night I had matzah. Never had it before. It scared me so much- I woke up unable to breathe. (I was pregnant)
And I love the “ritual” of challah and the after bread prayer (birkat hamazon). I miss it.
But I won’t go back to gluten.
I believe you have that backwards. He is a punishment for gluten.
I ended up taking two antibiotics for a micro plasma bacterial infection on my lungs. This was followed by some new sickness every week for 6 month’s. When I could not swallow they finally diagnosed it as celiacs. Within three days of not being on gluten I felt like I was on speed I had so much energy. A month later some one I know gave me something that had gluten in it. In twenty minutes I went to sleep and slept for 18 hours. This was after my hands felt like they were on fire and I got cramps. There was maybe a cheese it worth of gluten in what I ate. Now I check everything including my medicine. I won’t eat out either and I don’t eat anything someone has made. I can tell when something has any gluten in it.
Getting gluten out of my diet changed my life and got my autoimmune disease under control after 12 years of struggling with depression and fatigue symptoms.
I’m hoping to hear you went with Geico and saved tons of money on your insurance, too! /jk
And just to add a little fuel to the fire..Where does a lot of our wheat gluten coming from?
That’s right, China. Adulterated? Wouldn’t surprise me in the least.
Remember this? IIRC the ‘secret’ ingredient was melamine.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration blocked imports of wheat gluten from a Chinese company Monday. The agency identified the company as the source of the tainted wheat gluten that caused a massive pet-food recall last week.....
So, it has great value and yet should be burned out before it kills you.
Does this include beer?
Many more Americans are food hypochondriacs then is commonly believed.
I believe you are correct.
What words did I use to make you think I was making fun of gluten free people???? I am clueless.
I made the comment that Novak Djokovich discovered that HE was gluten intolerant, stopped eating gluten and STEPPED UP his tennis game so much that he is now and still the number one tennis player in the world.
How is THAT mocking gluten free people????
