When I travel, I let myself eat more foods that I would not normally eat in my day-to-day life. I went gluten-free about four years ago,and over time, I have become VERY sensitive to gluten. I try to steer away from those gluten-free complex carbohydrates because, they are like a drug to me.
Over the last two weekends I traveled to dance competitions with my daughter. Out of convenience, I packed several gluten-free snacks including donuts, chips, and popcorn. It was glorious but now it has to stop.
It is amazing how quickly my body learns to appreciate, crave, and even demand the complex carbohydrate fix. As I am sitting here typing this post, I consumed my chicken breast and five clementines for lunch. I am now trying to convince my body that it is not getting anything more, no matter how much it protests.
I am not sure how long it will take for my body to come to terms with the fact that I am not giving it complex carbohydrates with every meal. I gave in yesterday but, today I am holding strong!
