Wheat-free challenge : the first weeks

Well I said I would keep you posted about my wheat-free challenge. Cutting wheat off my diet is hard. Really. Sometimes I have these ‘craving moments’ that I would like to devour a loaf of white bread by myself. But then I stop myself and I tell myself that it’s ok, everything is ok.

When it’s late in the night and I don’t really want to cook, I really struggle. Last Friday, when my boyfriend ordered my favourite Pizza (made of wheat flour) there was nothing that could have stopped me to have a slice. Nothing! And you know what? I didn’t feel guilty. At all! However, after a couple of hours I started to feel so bloated and I started to scratch my hands. When I woke up in the morning I had some eczema on my left hand. Nothing major for sure but still, very annoying.

That’s the reason why I am so committed to transforming my diet and find a way to replace wheat flour. There are many options. I just need to explore what’s possible and create some time to cook and bake delicious food.
