This Friday will mark my first week eating according to my food intolerances and today I discovered pasta that I can actually eat!
Since I am not only intolerant to gluten but to certain grains as well, some of my options include rice and buckwheat as long as it’s all gluten free. Most of the pasta I have found before were gluten free but they would be a mixture of buckwheat and wheat which I can’t eat and today not only did I find pure rice flour pasta but I also found buckwheat pasta and both of them are vegan and gluten free.
My life is just a beautiful fairytale.
I bought the rice one because it was cheaper in comparison to the buckwheat one, but I will try that one next time. I also found a premade sauce that I can eat as well and tonight was pasta night.
It did not disappoint but I also didn’t have high expectations because I know these foods that I eat will never taste like the “originals”. The rice pasta is a bit harder that wheat pasta but it wasn’t bad.
This whole week has been very interesting when it comes to cooking. I based my diet mostly on fruits, veggies, meat and falafel. Step by step I am learning how to season my food to make it taste better because I can no longer buy so many premade things and I am a terrible cook.
One thing that I am literally scared of is my first PMS with this new diet. It will happen very soon, I checked my calendar and I also decided to prepare for it. I know myself and I know damn well I will be craving chocolate, cake and ice cream so I am already exploring some recipes that do not include eggs, gluten and dairy. You can bet it’s hard! I cannot even buy vegan candy because my stomach does not approve of soy.
Overall, I have to say that I have been feeling better this week. I haven’t been extremely nauseous once this whole week and I think that’s the first time in my life that has happened. No stomach pain, no cramps, no indigestion, no bad digestion. I still have some issues, but that’s normal especially because my body is adapting to a whole new diet.
I did not take a picture of my lovely pasta because the only thing I wanted was to eat it so sorry….
Hope you are all having a great weekend!
Sending love and positive vibes,
