Happy Anniversary to Me

It has officially been one year since I was diagnosed with celiac. It's been kind of (okay, very) rough year but things are definitely looking up. My test results are normal and while I still have some joint issues, I think we've finally figured out what causes them. (Sugar. Apparently I cannot eat it straight anymore. Yes, sometime I would do that (like yesterday). Don't judge me.)

Diet-wise, I'm still keeping to my crazy restrictive diet (no grains of any kind (including rice), limited seasonings, no spicy peppers, no legumes (I am a bit sad about saying goodbye to butter beans, a favorite food since forever, but they make me hurt so bad it's not hard to give them up), limited dried fruits and starchy vegetables...) but I really don't feel restricted at all. In fact, we eat really well so I kind of love that and honestly, I wouldn't have been able to make such drastic dietary changes unless I had to, so really that's worked out pretty nicely.

So yeah, one year anniversary of celiac. Go me! In celebration, I made some paleo brownies. And they were delicious. Yay!


  1. Yay you! One year is a huge benchmark. Y'all eat wonderfully healthy. Any yummy too!

    1. Yay for disease anniversaries! :D At least I can definitely see a huge improvement between now and this time last year. That's motivating!
