Why I Will Not Eat Gluten Again

Dear Jenni,

Please don’t go back on this one…

The stomach pain
The bloating
The burps and subsequent embarrassment
The other bodily gases and subsequent embarrassment
What will the good looking people think?
Food comas
The bathroom isn’t the best place to spend a nice evening
There are so many things I can’t enjoy when I am preoccupied with gluten sickness
Vicious cycle of gluten eating leading to more gluten eating

Stay chipper. Love always,
Jenni

On Saturday I made gluten-free vegan granola with the recipe I found here:

Ingredients:

3 cups oats

½ cup chopped cashews

½ cup sunflower seeds

¼ cup rice flour

¼ cup sorghum flour ¼ cup potato flour

1 tablespoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon allspice

1 teaspoon ginger

¾ cup honey ¾ cup maple syrup

½ cup cranberry juice, unsweetened

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

2 teaspoons canola oil

a splash of unsweetened pomegranate juice

As you can see I made some substitutions and got creative with a few things.
