My Gluten-Free Journey
6 years ago, I made the life-changing decision to remove gluten-containing foods from my diet. Part of this was the incredible influence of my CrossFit gym, but this was also in large part due to my digestive issues. At the time, I believed that whole-wheat foods were actually “healthy”. But, for some reason, my stomach didn’t agree with me. For years, I couldn’t get past the bloating and discomfort after I ate products containing wheat, rye, or barley. Ultimately, in adopting a gluten-free diet, I was worried that I would lose out on all the delicious foods like cake, pizza, donuts, and the like. However, little did I know that I would become immersed in a world that would change my life.
