Change; The Only Constant
Have you had this experience yet? You walk into the grocery store, the scent of freshly baking bread steaming right out of the oven.....makes you want to gag? I went to lunch the other day with some friends to a restaurant that specializes in freshly baked rolls. A roll came with my salad and as I was politely declining the roll my friend said, "oh, she wants it" and proceeded to put one on my plate (this was of course so she could eat it). I could hardly stand it! I wanted that gluten filled toxic roll off my plate, I was afraid it might touch my salad. Sounds a little crazy, maybe a little extreme, but as I am approaching my 2 year anniversary of being gluten free I have found my views and tastes have changed.
I thought I would always have these cravings for gluten filled goodness. Cinnamon rolls and dinner rolls especially. Not true. I don't even want it, especially anything with wheat or high amounts of sugar. It just doesn't sound good and this has really taken me by surprise. So if you are struggling, wondering if it ever gets any better, embrace the changes you need to make and look forward to the future. It does get easier. Our bodies know what is best for them and the head cravings do go away. Now if I could just figure out how to quit craving whipped cream!
