This week, I have decided to try eating Gluten-Free. I've read so much about people who live a GF lifestyle and I'm really curious to see how it works out for me. I love my carbs, so I was worried at first about eliminating things like bread, wheat tortillas, and pretzels. Once I started exploring though, I discovered just how many gluten-free choices there are for almost EVERYTHING! My recent purchases:
|Rice bread instead of my normal wheat/rye|
|To replace Clif bars: Lara, Bumble, and Kind bars!|
Luckily, I'm not alone in this challenge. Cara from Eat.Pray.Run is also eating Gluten-Free this week and blogging all about it as well! I'm looking forward to hearing how she does and learning from her. She cooks and eats some amazing foods, so follow her to see how the week goes! She also happens to be ridiculously gorgeous. I'm not just saying that, really. See?
Today I had my last long-run before my half next Saturday, and finished at 8.61 miles. Random length? Yes. Hubs drove by and I just hopped in the car rather than heading home! I was so excited to finish in 1:19, so a 9:10 pace. That's my fastest long run EVER! To celebrate I made an asian-inspired (ish) dinner. Edamame, Thai noodles with peanuts (I can't call it Pad Thai, it was way too simple to be that!) corn, and tons of ginger. Pickled ginger is so amazing and I can't get enough of it!
Do you eat a gluten-free diet or have you ever tried it? Advice, suggestions, and products please!
This is the first time I've ever tried to avoid Gluten intentionally, so I could use your expertise. If you have any favorite snacks or meals without gluten, share the info!
Do you love Ginger?
If you say no we might not be able to stay blog friends. (Don't worry, we'll probably be ok) My favorite part of getting sushi is the ginger, so tasty!
