My wheat free life continues.
I am the kind of person who likes to see the glass half full. I have worked hard to solve a health issue I have had since I was very young. I have seen dozens of doctors, tried pills and more until I met Dr. Norm Shealy. He instantly said it was probably a wheat allergy….and it was.
It took a little time to work it out of my system but after two weeks I felt so much better. After two months, I felt amazing!! I so am glad there is a big gluten free craze going on right now, because it offers lots of options for a girl like me.
Ron and I went out to eat last weekend where I told the server I could not eat wheat or gluten. However, something must have had some type of gluten or wheat in it, like a sauce thickened with flour, because within 30 minutes I could not stand up and felt sick for 3 days.
All that to say I believe we need to do whatever it takes to be the best version of ourselves we can be..such as exercising: I am back to running now and on my last cruise I cannot believe how great I felt because of the choices to be the best I can be, and daily I get up excited about life!
I have also become a better cook, you can ask Ron, he will agree too! I do not like to use a lot of fancy ingredients, I want to keep it simple too…like this soup I made today and thought I would share it with you:
Nancy’s best crock pot split pea soup
I bag dried split peas
1 box chicken stock
2 c. water
4 golden potatoes rough cut n chunks
turkey kielbasa sausages ( you can use ham to I just do not like ham)
1 yellow onion
1 T minced garlic
1 tsp oregano
salt and pepper to taste
1st thing in the morning
Rinse split peas and add to crock pot and cover with chicken stock
Heat Olive Oil and add garlic and onions until onions are cooked and add to the peas and stock.
Add the Sausage potatoes, salt pepper, oregano to the crock pot and cover.
Cook on low all day. Come home from work and indulge!
Enjoy and be the best you that you can be!
