It’s always stressful to try a new restaurant or a different dish somewhere. You never know if it’s safe or if you’ll end up glutened.
I’ve been missing pizza. Real pizza, not the frozen stuff I get at the store. I want to eat thick crust, greasy pizza. All the gluten free pizza I eat is thin crust. And never gooey and greasy.
But pizza is always a risky thing for someone with celiac disease. Some places are super careful. Others, not so much. So I tried pizza at a restaurant where I normally get pasta.
Well, there must have been the tiniest bit of cross contamination.
I woke up the next morning extremely bloated. My digestive system was upset, and I was incredibly fatigued. Although it wasn’t nearly as bad as some past glutened experiences. I skipped my workout, teleworked, and then relaxed in the evening.
Saturday I woke up feeling hungover. But the bloating had gone down. I was even more fatigued. I took the day off. I sat on the couch and did a little work on my photography business in the morning. The afternoon I binged the new Unsolved Mysteries and attempted to nap. The evening? I was so tired I barely remember what we watched and fell asleep on the couch at like 8:30.
Sunday I was feeling much better but didn’t want to push too hard. I relaxed most of the day and lifted weights.
The worst side effect of being glutened is I get extremely hungry and want to eat everything. I didn’t track my food this weekend and definitely ate more than I should. I allow myself to eat because I hate the feeling of being ravenous. I also chug water like no one’s business.
If you have celiac disease, what do you do when you’re glutened?
