Gluten Free Recipes

If you've read my "My Journey to Wellness" in the About section of my blog then you know that I am on a restricted diet due to my thyroid disease. Since I have been on my restricted diet I am amazed at how great I feel. However, it hasn't exactly been easy coming up with meals due to my restrictions.

Most gluten-free recipes call for some sort of white starch or soy to make up for the lack thereof. But since I cant have those either I have since turned to the Paleo diet for inspiration that I can bring to my kitchen and my love for cooking. I'm not following the Paleo diet religously, but I do find it easier to locate recipes that contain a list of ingredients that I can have and don't have to substitute anything for.

Since I have been on this restricted diet, I have tried a few recipes here and there and not only have I been pleasantly surprised by the taste but my husband and my two year old son have taken to our new diet pretty well too. I have to note that my husband is the pickiest eater I know... you know... the "meat and potatoes" type. In the past I could never get him to eat vegetables other than the usual boring broccoli with butter, but we have since found some recipes that have been pleasing to his palate.

I am going to try to devote a daily recipe blog entry for you all as we continue to discover family pleasing dishes. Bon appetit!

  1. Hi Jessica, sorry to hear about your health problems. Sounds like you're learning to cope - it's quite a journey, isn't it?

    I've been living on a restricted diet for about 20 years, before there was much information out there. It's been A LOT of trial and error, to the point that my daughter and I decided to share our experiences (and recipes) on our website

    Keep up the good work, don't be afraid to experiment, and enjoy your food. That's most important! I'll be checking back often to see what you come up with - thanks for sharing!
