This month I am celebrating “Wheat Free March” I like the idea of celebrating.. I will start Monday morning. I have some things to catch up on this weekend after sugar free Feb. Mostly PIZZA!!
Now unlike some people, I am NOT going to add “gluten free” products to my list of things to eat. Most gluten free products have suagr in them and I still dont crave sugar and dont want to unnecessarily add it to my diet again. Believe me, I have done that before and it just sneeks in until before you know it , you are eating sugar every day and not even realizing it. So I will be always careful about reading ingredients lists. I am going all out and my list will be very strict and what I am eating. I am not telling aynone to do what I do, just use me as an example and as always ask me questions and I will find answers. Hre is my list of what I plan to eat this month. If I add any product I will note it weekly.
