Leaving Grains Behind

Hi there!
I am sorry for my lack of posting lately. I was on break  from school and had many plans of GF gingerbread houses, christmas, cookies, and holiday meals to relay to you, however life took hold and I decided to go visit family for the holidays and do some exploring. I will introduce you to the gluten free treasures I found along the way in a post to follow.
While away I have decided to go truly gluten free and cut out all grain types.
This is going to be difficult for me. I have just started becoming proficient after 3 years in the no wheat, barley, rye, and oat type of gluten free diet.
I am doing this for the sake of my kidney health. There is research out there that  shows that by cutting out all grains including the much beloved rice (except wild), corn, and quinoa, etc. that my disease (IgA nephropathy) can be reversed.
It is worth giving up a lot of things to be healthy. So I invite you to come with me while I explore this new territory.  I will continue to report on all aspects of gluten free living and bring you information on all things delightful in our gluten free community.
Talk to you soon!
