That familiar old feeling.


For dinner tonight I was having a craving for our local BBQ place’s hamburger and onion rings.  I know the meat and veggies will NOT be organic, but it would be quick, easy and yummy.  Well, I got more than I bargained for… I also got a headache, stomach ache, indigestion, enough mucus to choke on, and a quick trip to the bathroom… that familiar old feeling.  I know now that I am feeling this way because of the gluten and dairy.  I dipped my onion rings in that delicious ranch dressing they give you with the rings, and had mayo on my burger, and of course I ate the bun.  Now that I have cut out gluten and dairy, I can really see how it affects me.  Before, I just always felt sick and just thought that was just the way it would always be for me.  This was definitely a learning experience for me.  I felt guilty that I gave in to my cravings, but now I can see that I have learned from it.  I know we can’t always be perfect, and it’s ok to slip up now and then, but I will remember that maybe it wasn’t worth how bad I feel now.  Onion rings are definitely a weakness, I love them!  So, now I just have to come up with a gluten-free recipe so I can still have them.  Onions are so good for us, click on the link to find out more about the health benefits of onions.  I love the little green onion or scallions, I cut the root part off and saved it and replanted it to see if it would grow some new onions and it looks like it worked… YAY!
