Adventures in Gluten Free Cooking Part V

This is a picture of what I ate for dinner tonight.  This picture isn't mine.  It's Andie's. Her picture is much prettier than mine. :)  But I followed her recipes for honey barbeque meatloaf and mashed sweet potatoes.  These recipes literally caused me to say "shut up!" as I took a bite.  The only thing I changed was I used gluten free bread to make bread crumbs and I used almond milk for the potatoes because that's all I had.  So the gluten free experiments are over.  The conclusion I've come to?  If you HAVE to go gluten free... there are some great products and recipes out there.  I'm grateful that I don't HAVE to.  I had some more energy by cutting out so I'll definitely continue to cut it out when I can.  But, I also concluded that I just love bread too much to give it up completely, and that's ok.  Also, going completely gluten free is very pricey.  So the solution for me?  Replace breads and pastas with things like potatoes, rice, or spaghetti squash when I can and enjoy breads and pastas when I need to! 

Back to the amazing blogger that took the picture above.  I have talked about Andie before, but I will say it again.

This woman is amazing.

She has been incredibly motivating through advice and emotional support.  Reading her entries on her journey, making peace with food, and loving yourself, as well as a host of other topics has given me motivation to keep going.  I actually have pictures of her, Danni Allen, and Jami Withrell from Extreme Weight Loss with quotes by each of them on my fridge.  I look at them and think, if they can do it so can I.  All three of them dealt with the same issues with food that I do and were in dark places before they lost their weight.  I sometimes get grumpy about social media and blame it for a lot of the problems that we have in our society.  But, boy is it an awesome thing for motivation and finding support when you're going through tough stuff.
