Making Sense of Sensitivity: Day 3
Just to let you know, this post was written before I started the paleo diet to help ease my psoriasis. Nowadays I eat a more allergy-friendly diet, but leave these older, non-paleo posts up in case they are useful to readers, as I know not everyone eats the same as I do. Thanks for your understanding.
Anyway, here are my meals for the day:
Breakfast: Gluten-free bread, toasted, with butter.
Lunch: Bruschetta, made the way my Italian housemate at university taught me, using tinned tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil, a garlic clove and some basil - but, of course, with the addition of gluten-free sliced wholemeal ciabatta.
Dinner: Persian Chicken Stew. One of my favourite dishes and worth remembering if you're on a gluten-free diet, because it actually contains ground walnuts which thicken the sauce instead of needing to use any flour.
I only have 2 days left, and I'm really enjoying this challenge. It's changed the way I think about a gluten-free diet and I realise there is much more you can eat if you're sensitive to gluten than I thought. Plus, I do feel better and healthier. Roll on day 4!
Are you sensitive to gluten in your diet? Do you have any tips for my last couple of days?
