I've been feeling really lousy the past 6 weeks or so. Depressed, anxious, almost constant headaches and migraines. Not good. This is not uncommon for me. Challenging times. In the past, I've considered trying a gluten-free diet to see if it helped at all. But change takes more motivation than I typically have when I am feeling so poorly.
My lovely mother-in-law encouraged me to see what happens if I avoid gluten for a while. Just the motivation I've been needing! To top it off, she ordered a bunch of gluten-free products for me from this company. Have I ever mentioned that I have the most loving and thoughtful mother-in-law ever? Well I do!
My shipment of gluten-free products arrived yesterday. The kids and I made some cookies from one of the mixes today. I was curious how they would turn out. I almost always bake from scratch. Plus most gluten-free flour I've tasted is not great. But these? Yum! After a healthy and gluten-free dinner, I baked a dozen of the cookies. My husband, daughter, and son each had two cookies. I had two cookies, too. Interestingly, all twelve cookies are gone... and I am hoping that your math skills are worse than mine.
