Could this be the start of something special?

26 Aug

You know the old saying ‘today is the first day of the rest of my life’, well today feels something like this.  For those of you who don’t know me, I was diagnosed with Coeliac disease at under a year old and was really quite poorly.  Ever since then I’ve been following a strict Gluten Free diet and avoiding all those yummy things that most people might take for granted.  For the last few years though I have been cheating slightly with my diet and have not felt any ill effects.  After consultation with a specialist it was agreed that I would eat a ‘normal diet’ for 4 – 6 weeks and then be tested again for Coeliac.

So for 37 years I’ve been eating bland and boring foods, totally lacking in fibre and spending a load of money on gluten free foods from supermarkets.  Anyone who has to follow a strict gluten or dairy free diet will know that these do not come cheap!

So today I’ve started the day with a bowl of healthy bran flakes which are so much more exciting than cornflakes!  Lily and I have made a batch of homemade blueberry muffins and I can’t wait to russle up some more culinary delights for lunch… I’m thinking maybe a nice quiche.

Fingers crossed that the next few weeks will be quite smooth sailing and then I can get re-tested.  I don’t think it is very common for someone to grow out of Coeliac disease once they have been diagnosed with it but I’m just hoping that as I had it from such a young age that it might be possible..(please, please, please)

Does anyone else have Coeliac disease?  Anyone else been on a gluten free diet for years and then been able to come off it?
