Our family has been about 95% gluten free now for almost four months, and while we’ve had our challenges, it’s been the best decision/change that we could have made. And I’ll admit, there have been times we’ve had a few “cheat” meals or a few snacks here and there that aren’t gluten free, but we can always feel and see the difference. Todd is the main one that can feel the difference (mainly because it’s helped with stomach aches/pains), but Taylor is where we can see the difference.
I’m not really sure if it’s the gluten or the sugar (or the combination), but it’s a visible difference that Todd and I can see when she has these two things. And let’s be real, Taylor still has sugar and occasionally food with gluten, but we try really hard to give her as little as possible.
Also, I know many of you have asked via Instagram and email if eating the gluten occasionally throws things off for a long period of time, and the answer for us is no. Like I mentioned above, we can definitely tell a difference in Taylor’s focus and being hyperactive when she eats it, but she nor anyone in our family is truly allergic to gluten. In a nutshell, this is just a choice we made for our family after talking with a few doctors and a nutritionist on what we could try naturally to help with mine and Taylor’s ADD/ADHD.
And here are mine and my families tried and true favorite gluten free recipes.
And last, because this dress is almost sold out at Nordstrom, I wanted to share with you guys this embroidered dress that I just purchased. The embroidered details on this dress are amazing, and it’s even more gorgeous in person! For reference it runs big, and I am wearing the xs.
