And so it begins….
Hello everyone!!! Welcome to Off the Wheaten Path. A Gluten-Free and Clean Eating Blog.
I love food, but not all foods love me.
For many years I suffered with severe allergies. It had reached a stage where it felt like everything I ate made me sick. After years of suffering and getting tired of taking numerous medications I did a blood analysis and they discovered I had very high levels of Candida Albicans. At first I had no clue what they were talking about. I was like, “What is Candida?” But after doing lots of research, I realized that it’s a fungus that in high levels in the body may have been causing all of my allergies. Since then I have been on a clean, gluten-free, low sugar, low carb, no dairy diet, to detox but as a result I had remove many of my favourite foods.
So one day I told myself that if this was how I was going to live, I had to find a way to do it on my terms with the foods I loved. And that is how Off the Wheaten Path was born. It’s filled with remakes of some of my favorite recipes, while creating new ones and testing ones that already exist. It was difficult at first, trying to figure out the recipes and what I could and could not use. But after lots of trial and error I’m finally getting it and I’m creating recipes for foods such as pizza, and creamy chicken alfredo that taste great but is still clean and healthy, and of course Gluten-Free.
I may not always get it right, but I’m going to keep trying until I do! I hope you’ll join me in the adventure!
