2. Despite #1, there is actually a lot of really good stuff that doesn't contain wheat. I'm starting to stockpile it.
3. Gorilla Munch cereal (from Trader Joe's) is SO MUCH BETTER than Kix. I don't know what it is (or probably more like what it isn't, since there are only three delicious ingredients and I can pronounce all of them).
4. Those red bumps on the back of my arms weren't just obnoxious leftovers from the hormone-craze that was adolescence---they were a sign of the allergy, and they're totally gone now
5. I really miss Bao.
6. Thinking to one's self a week into the no-wheat thing, "Gosh, I'm probably not really allergic, I can have this cupcake!" is a spectacularly bad idea
That being said, I need to do some serious internet/library research about good gluten free recipes. I specifically want to learn how to bake gluten-free because I really don't want Ainslie to be "that kid" who brings in celery sticks for her class on her birthday because she's allergic to cake. Also, I want to figure out how to make gluten-free graham crackers. Because making graham crackers is awesome. What, I haven't blogged about that yet? Get ready, it's been almost a year long obsession now and I'm ready for the world to know about it.
