A grain-free New Year?

I've decided that I really need to go back to grain-free living for awhile. After having illness after illness, thanks mostly to my daughter being in daycare, I've been eating too many convenience foods, many of them having wheat in them, and my gut has responded...poorly. So I need to get back on track and just eat better.

I'm choosing a period of two weeks to start with, as I have about that much time left until I go back to teaching. So I plan on eating meat, eggs, dairy products, with liberal amounts of vegetables and some fruits, but no grains. If I want sweets, they will be minimal, without processed sugar or grains. So no wheat, corn, rice or any other grain to cross my lips. I'm hoping that after two weeks, I will feel the improvement, and reassess my situation.

This coming semester, I will be working 4 days a week instead of two, so I think that as long as I can cook myself breakfasts in the morning (instead of gluten free cereals), I will succeed. I just need to get myself back in the habit of doing that.

I think I can, I think I can, I think I can...
