Gluten Free June

Today's gluten free lunch
My body likes it better when I don't eat wheat.  It's not that I have a gluten allergy, although I fake one to B-man occasionally just to get an extra back scratch, which he cheerfully gives even though we both know I'm bullshitting.  In my world, preference toward something is just a hop, skip and a jump from an allergy to something else.  For example, I prefer clothing that is comfortable, which is a pretty clear indication that I have a full-blown allergy to business suits. 
So yeah, let's run gluten allergy up the flag pole.
Last spring - then again last fall - I stopped eating wheat and felt so much better.  Apparently it didn't improve my memory, because I'm 'experimenting' with it again now.  Fortunately, it's easy because I love rich, oily, fatty food like cheese, olives, avocados and hummus.  Deprivation is not on my radar, so wheat is the only thing I'm eliminating in June and perhaps beyond if my theory holds true once again. Clearly, martinis and wine don't cause any allergic reaction.  B-man knows that, too.
So what perfumes go with gluten free eating?  Nomaoud by Comptoir Sud Pacifique is a clear winner with its perfectly non-sweet rose, oud and incense.  So is Un Jardin en Mediterranee by Hermes with it's fresh greens, mint & tomato vibe.  I guess that means June will be 30 days of Mediterranean food and Mediterranean perfume. 
Day 8 and all is well.

  1. Our whole family was having problems with pre-made baked goods, especially bread. That had never happened in Europe, so I'm wondering what about non-organic American bread can cause trouble. I think they are allowed to use treated sawdust up to 10% in bread "to add fiber" and because wheat is going up in price. I switched us to organic wheat flour and went back to baking my own bread and we've had no further trouble. Maybe it's not the gluten???

    1. Marla, good point - I may try the organic wheat as I love bread! Thanks for the info.
