Wheat free report

This wheat-free thing is awesome! In just two weeks of no-wheat/no-gluten, I've had a near total resolution of joint pain that was recently putting a bid on the Ruin Dark Em's Life contract. In many ways, bike-riding has been a reaction to how much it was hurting me just to walk around.

(Riding Clyde has turned into a great deal more than that, of course, but riding a bike around town is, in fact, a very low-impact, non-weight bearing activity that's easy on most of body's joints.)



Now, not only can I walk around again, but I was doing it yesterday with a stride and a gait that I had forgotten, vigorous and open and resolute. Like a fully-alive person. And while 20 miles on Clyde still makes my knees hurt, the pain is both smaller and quicker to subside than even a few weeks ago.

I've tried the wheat-free thing a couple of times before, and noticed benefits including sinus relief and some moderate weight-loss (this was before joint-pain set in), but the whole world of gluten-free baking was closed to me then, so going wheat-free meant leaving a big hole in my diet where "treats and goodies" used to live.

Now I've got gluten-free pound cake and gluten-free graham crackers (both delicious) and a whole internet full of other recipes still to try, so I think I could carry on with this indefinitely, as long as I don't let myself dwell on how much I'll miss the croissants from Ken's Artisan Bakery.

Gluten-free graham crackers

What should I try next? I'm thinking a savory version of the graham crackers. Maybe with cayenne and some cheese in place of the sugar and honey...

I am literally salivating.

Dear lord. I'm trying those as soon as I have the hours, the butter, and the general sense of decadence to spare!

Words just cannot do justice to my love for Our Friend Teh Intarwebz.
