So, I mentioned I found some helpful cookbooks at the bookstore. The next question I had was…what CAN I eat?
I was relieved to find these great books, as well as lots of online resources. GLU-ten is hidden in a lot of foods as a preservative or binding compound… but it’s also in other things I needed to be watchful for. Mainly, GLUE or things that might have glue type properties. Licking envelopes, and things like tile grout have gluten in them too. Not that you’re ingesting grout – but it is a powder, it’s difficult to control. The more I learned, the more I realized WHY my friend said she would pray for discernment for me, with EVERYTHING I put into my mouth and came in contact with. It’s a great thing I’m up on how to read labels – praise be to God!
I can eat my sweet potato chips. THAT is great news, since that was a majority of my carb intake before. I think it’s NOT a wonder that I loved them so much, they didn’t make me sick! I can also eat all of the beautiful fruits and vegetables God made for us to enjoy. SO thankful!
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?” Matthew 6:25-27
