My First Day as a Silly Yak

My first day as a Silly Yak (otherwise known as celiac) went quite well). It was the first time my stomach hasn't hurt for a full 12 hours!

Breakfast: Hash (roast, potatoes, and onions cooked in butter)
Lunch: Los Hermanos (carne asada in corn tortillas, rice, and beans)
Dinner: chicken, potatoes, grapes, onions & mushrooms
Dessert: gluten-free blueberry bar

I must say, I loved my day full of eating gluten-free. I even bought myself a bucket of tortilla chips from Los Hermanos. The kids were super excited about my new-found disease!

**The picture above is of my sisters, Dad, and I on Christmas day after we found out what our Christmas present was from dear ol' Paps. It was a promissory note for a shopping spree for all the girls. We were all laughing hysterically because the boys, Josh and Caleb, had just opened their cards full of cold, hard cash. The girls notes were empty. For some reason, it struck us as hilarious. We couldn't get control of ourselves. Dad laughed the hardest of all! I think he was secretly hoping we wouldn't cash in on the shopping spree day! Unfortunately for him, we cashed in a few days later. Thanks, Dad! We love you!

Isn't it nice to have a name for all of those symptoms? Congratulations on your first day as a silly yak.

I'm glad you've had a happy belly today. Jed's sister has celiac's and I'm surprised at how many foods have sneeky gluten hiding in there. Good luck with your new diet!
