I've been gluten-free since May 2016, but my doctor wants me to do a celiac panel. And in order to do the celiac test you have to be eating gluten daily for a period of time (sources vary on recommended length). So, I'm enjoying this freshly-made traditional sourdough bread from my local @bridgeheadcoffee and it is πŸ‘ŒπŸΌπŸ˜»πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸž. So far I'm torn on whether or not I think I have celiac (I'm guessing not), but it's definitely apparent that my body doesn't handle it well. Probably because of my leaky gut issues, which won't show up on a blood test, nor will it be acknowledged by my family doc. That's ok. I'm grateful for my functional medicine doctor's guidance through that stuff. And, I'll continue to straddle that balance between a natural approach to my health, and working with conventional medicine when warranted. Onward and upward! (And in the meantime - hello sourdough goodness!😍)

  • kitchenstewardshipOh man... So you have to feel yucky for many days...I hope there are a lot of cinnamon rolls and amazing crusty bread in your future! At least enjoy it while you can!
  • redandhoney@kitchenstewardship I FORGOT ABOUT CINNAMON ROLLS!! #onit
  • meganstevenseatbeautifulEnjoy, wow! And then it's encouraging to know there are so many gluten-free treats on the other side of what you learn from your doctor, too. :-)
  • jennschmidgallUnfortunately I do have celiac but if I didn't I would be enjoying cinnamon rolls and other packaged convenience food like egg noodles. Oooh and takeout pizza. The possibilities are endless. Lol.
  • liverenewedThat balance is hard!! We've been trying to find it for my hubs who has been tested for celiac twice and it's come back negative, but who obviously has a sensitivity and other gut issues.
  • thehumbledhomemakerPrayers for a great panel!! I was GF for 4 years straight--no cheats. I have occasional gluten now but haven't seen a difference.
  • naturalfertilityandwellnessThat bread looks sooo good!
  • tradcookschoolMmm sourdough! Hope you can get it figured out soon!
  • marta_danielsAmazing!
