I have been eating a mostly Paleo diet for the last couple months. What that breaks down to:
• no grains
• no refined sugars
• no dairy
• basically no junk food
I have mostly followed it and it has been going fantastic… That is until I decided to cheat and have some pizza.
I had my first big experience with asthma in months and then broke out in this lovely, bright red rash. So I immediately consulted Dr. Google, along with my Paleo friend Chelsey. Looks like I’ve got a gluten intolerance, people.
Since I rid my diet of all gluten, I no longer have a built up tolerance for it. It has been two days and I still have the worst stomach pains. This just reinforces my plans to continue eating Paleo, because now it seems to function I’ll need to kick gluten for good.
I will need to check with Bumblebee’s pediatrician to see if he might have an intolerance as well. He has eczema, and that could be a cause for it. At this point, I’m just happy my reaction wasn’t more severe.
If you have issues with gluten feel free to share any resources or helpful hints in dealing with this aversion.
