I have been doing the gluten free, casein free, soy free diet for Evie for several months now, and it is working wonderfully. Each day is a different grain day. Yesterday was garbanzo day, today is quinoa day, tomorrow is millet day, and the day after next is rice day. I made both muffins and breads with the separate flours to go with the days. That way I don't have to worry about her eating the same thing every day. I have already noticed a difference in her coloring..she has rosy cheeks and her eyes are bright blue without the dark circles (dark circles tend to indicate allergies). I'm also eating gluten free, and it is getting easier as time goes on. I'm getting the hang of it :). Today we made gluten free playdough. All playdough from the store has wheat in it, so I made playdough with rice flour and colored it with food coloring. It turned out really well! It is still cooling, so it is a bit sticky, but we still had fun playing with it.
Thanksgiving is going to have gluten free items as well. I'm going to have traditional stuffing made with wheat for Jeff and my parents, but for Evie and I, I am going to make the yummy crock pot gluten free stuffing I made last year. I'm also making a gluten free pumpkin pie for Evie and I (my Mom is bringing the pies that have gluten). I can't believe that Thanksgiving is only 8 days away!!
By the way, for some reason Blogger really doesn't like me lately. It isn't showing on any of the blogger lists that I have updated my blog. So please check back, even if it still shows that I haven't updated!
