I have been a toast girl all of my life.  Hate cereal with a passion and only really eat it as a snack (without the milk) when I'm really craving it.

So the announcement that wheat is the enemy sent me into a spin.  I love my bread!  So I've had to become a little bit creative with my breaky.

Here's what I've come up with so far (and how I rate them out of ten):

Cornflakes with stewed fruit. 4/10

Sweet spiced Risotto 8/10

Rice/corn thins with avocado, tomato and grated cheese 7.5/10

As you can see, I still haven't hit the perfect breakfast that was both convenient and tasty.

For the record, I have tried gluten free bread and it was disgusting.  All suggestions will be taken into consideration.

I'm back!

Sorry for the absence.

But I'm back.

There have been many developments of late. Here is the latest. In order to get healthy and well, and balance out my hormones and lose weight, I'm now under the care of a naturopath. Yippee.

So the first consultation went well. We determined the underlying issue (digestion mostly caused by a condition I have) which then lead to eliminating wheat and potatoes out of my already restricted diet. This was crushing. I love my bread.

So here I am at day 4 and slowly getting used to starting the day without toast. Yesterday I noticed I wasn't as tired as I usually am. Granted I was tired but I think that had to do with a small girl wetting her bed at 5:30am rather than the usual feeling exhausted. Things are looking up. Eliminating wheat also means I have to plan my meals better than I used to as well. Not many fast food/takeaways have wheat or potato free foods. So I'm packing my lunch of left over risotto today.

So stay tuned for updates on how I'm tracking.
