Wheat Free Living - Easier Than You Think
I haven't written much about the way that we eat other than we make the choice to eat real organic food. Life-affirming food each and every day.
Today I would like to share some wheat-free living tips I have found useful! It is easier than you may think!
I say this because it took me a long time to make the choice to remove wheat, grains, and gluten. I thought it was going to be so hard to do and I would miss bread so much. This has not been the case.
I only know this because I have now been living wheat-free, grain-free and gluten-free for over 8 years. I began this part of my journey with a simple 30-day experiment. I made the commitment to myself to eliminate wheat and gluten for 30 days and then decide what the next month would look like.
The most exciting thing about this lifestyle change is in the first three or four days I began to see changes to how I felt. And food has never been such a joy!
After giving up the wheat, grains and gluten I felt so much better, feel great after meals, everything tastes are so much more amazing because of our real food, organic, pastured, grass-fed life-affirming meals.
