I am still pretty irritated that I have to give up wheat. I love to mill my own wheat. Makes me feel “earthy.” I am praying that my Hashimotos diagnosis was either false or that God will just heal it. Because the thought of living without bread makes me angry. Honestly. That is the basic staple for mankind. “Give us this day our daily bread.” “Fish and Loaves.” I make bread for my family and usually eat a slice or two because it is just so good.
Yesterday I fell off the wagon. I made cookies and was good at not eating any batter. But once they came out of the oven, I had to sample one. For the sake of my family. Right?! Well, then my anger about having to give up wheat took over and later in the day I said “forget it” and ate like 2 more cookies. And a little later, two more. Honestly, I can’t tell if my stomach is having a reaction or not. Because it’s that time of the month and I am thinking the cramps are from that? Needless to say, I do need to start my AIP over again. (Can someone say “Take #5).
Today I am starting with tea. I will have my bone broth based vegetable/chicken soup for breakfast and for lunch. For dinner, I haven’t a clue. But if I am going to do this AIP thing well, I need to make a plan. I need to understand food and it’s relation to my disease and then I need to get happy about my plan and go from there.
