GF Update & Not so GF Bagels

1

BAGELS!

Hello!

First, there are so many things that I want to tell you about, including this post from July! JULY! That’s right.

Since my fainting episode I have been grounded from skating, started a very low dose of thyroid medicine, gotten a new, better physician, and am currently waiting on some additional workups. As I mentioned in my previous post, I had also read that avoiding gluten for 4 hours after thyroid medicine can keep it from messing with the absorption. So I’ve been doing that most of the time now too. (GF product reviews to follow!)

We haven’t eliminated gluten completely, but have definitely been more mindful of what we’re buying and that sort of thing. In doing this we’ve both DEFINITELY noticed a difference in how our GI feels in general! Much less bloated and sluggish feeling for both of us; something we noticed over the course of a couple of weeks. So we’re going to stick to that to as much as possible from now on. (Except beer, because you know, Beer!)

Now, ironically, I had this Bagel post I had taken pictures for sitting here, as I mentioned. I decided to share it anyway, just as a “Look what I did!” sort of thing, but I’d also really like to learn how to make gluten free vegan bagels too, since they’re hard to find. In fact, when I’m done here, I’m going to go look it up. But in the meantime, here is my quick picture version of the very gluten containing bagels from Vegan Brunch

BAGELS! How I conquered my fears of yeast bread!

I used Isa's Vegan Brunch recipe.

Yeast proofed! :)

The happiest thing to see! I can’t tell you how many times in my younger years, I failed to make this happen, thus perpetuating my irrational fear of yeast breads up until this!
