We are giving Gluten Free living a go.
My children are none too impressed with me - they think GF will be the end of all things tasty in their lives and given their definitions of tasty, they could be on to something. But there are just too many stories of the links between ADD and Gluten....I think I owe it to Seb and to the family to give it a go.
I've been on enough diets to know the cold turkey is NOT the way to win the race. So we are easing ourselves into the Gluten Free living quietly and unobtrusively. We are starting with breakfast. When Charles was in the States a couple of weeks ago, I asked him to buy several boxes of Chex GF cinammon cereal. And the magnificent husband that he is, he did. My kids are very fond of their cinammon and the bitter pill of the upcoming GF lifestyle was gilded with the taste of the cinammon tinted cereal. Win for mum.
Sadly, Chex is not available in HK. And the cereal is a dwindlin' down. So Charles and I are looking for alternatives. I know about iherb, but they don't offer Chex. Something will turn up.
My friend Mary sells corn tortillas. They are gluten free and we will soon be incorporating them into our lunches and dinners. Small steps.
KINDER THAN NECESSARY
I offered someone "my" taxi today. A lady did this for me a few months ago and the kids and I have never forgotten her.
