I have been having some health issues lately – nothing serious, but impactful enough that I finally got myself in to see my wonderful family doctor. I got tested for a variety of things, and one of them happened to be celiac. Today I found out that I tested negative for everything, which is awesome, except for the celiac thing. I will be going for a biopsy to confirm, but in the meantime will be trying gluten-free foods to see how I get along with those. I want to point out that in Canada, the doctor’s appointment, lab work, and endoscopy with biopsy are all covered under our universal health care. I love being Canadian!
As I take the time to deal with what this means for how I cook and eat (a triple whammy: vegetarian, low-fat due to having no gall bladder, and now this), I have decided to take a little hiatus from blogging and be a little more private about my food.
I enjoy blogging, so I’m sure I will be back, but for now just need some time to think, plan, and experiment. If you’ve just found my blog, there’s just over a year’s worth of vegetarian bentos, with a decent amount of gluten-free offerings to peruse. Pour yourself a coffee or peppermint tea and enjoy.
And as I posted on my Facebook page earlier today, coffee is gluten-free. I will be just fine!
