A post from Kelli:
Over the past few months, I have come to the conclusion that I feel better when I do not eat gluten. I haven’t gone to the doctor or been officially diagnosed with anything, but have found that I just feel better without it.
Prior to cutting out the gluten, I didn’t realize that gluten is in lots and lots of wonderful, spectacular, fantastical food. One of my new favorite things is Spanish Rice. You can find the recipe here. I have made it a few times, some with the chicken broth and sometimes with just plain water. It tastes fine both ways, but I think that the broth gives it just a bit more body. In place of the tomatoes, I have also been using some of mom’s salsa as I know it doesn’t have gluten in it as many processed tomato products do.
When I made the rice the other night, Jason quickly informed me that he didn’t plan on eating any because he only likes white rice with sugar and milk. I told him that was fine okay….that just means more for me!
