So much for grain free, but...

I have to admit defeat at staying grain-free. I just didn't have it in me to do it. I love corn and rice too much to do it, I guess. Maybe I will get back to that another time. I will say, however, that I have been very good at remaining gluten-free, and my tummy is thanking me for it.

However, I have managed to avoid a much bigger addiction: coffee. I have been free of coffee for almost a week and half now. I am not avoiding caffeine, mind you. Teas and chocolate are still a big part of my life, and I have to admit, Zevia sodas are, too. Just the coffee because I know that some do bother my system more than others. So this is a test, just for now, especially after I saw this article:

Honestly, I think avoiding the coffee has been great for me. I feel less bloated now, and my system is much calmer, so perhaps I do have a gluten cross-reaction with coffee.

I just hope I don't have to give anything else up...

What have your experiences been with food intolerances, and how do you handle it?
