March 11th is D-Day. I have my endoscopy that afternoon. From now until the 11th I have to be sure to eat gluten. The GI specialist has basically already diagnosed me with celiac disease but the endoscopy is the icing on the cake.
I am currently on a whirlwind tour to eat all of the gluten. What do I want to eat, or try, that I won’t be able to after the 11th?
I am eating mac n cheese, having my last frozen pizza, turnovers, pop-tarts and burritos. I am going to restaurants and ordering lots of favorites made with gluten. Pizza and pitas. Cheeseburgers and fries.
I did spend some time looking at gluten-free foods at both the grocery store and Costco. It amazes me how much more expensive gluten-free food can be. At Costco we picked up a loaf of Udi’s gluten-free bread for $8.99. $9 for a loaf of bread. Seriously? Seriously. I guess some shopping around is in order. I did find out Whole Foods has an entire gluten-free bakery line. I guess I trip to Whole Foods is in order.
My life is about to make a major change and I am going out with a bang!
