So a little over half a year ago I found out that I was gluten intolerant. This wasn't too big of a shock to me, my brother was diagnosed Celiac about 15 years ago and I had just found out that there were 3 more members in my family that had recently be diagnosed with a gluten allergy of some sort. My issues were minor gastrointestinal distress, lack of energy, poor sleep habits, and, most glaring, systemic arthritis. ALL of my joints were hurting every day. The joint pain was the driving force to figure out what was going on, as a 25 year old guy should not be feeling this way. I stopped eating items that contain gluten and within 6 weeks I was feeling better than I had in the previous 3 years. Needless to say, this change is a permanent one. In the 7 months since the switch I've tried and tasted many many GF products, some of the great, many decent, but the majority are terrible. This led to me avoiding anything bread-like because I didn't have any good options. For a couple of months this was ok, but eventually I got to where I had specific cravings for pizza, bagels, hamburgers, soft pretzels, anything doughy. For 2 months it was REALLY rough with wanting bread but not being bale to eat anything that tasted good. In time I have found some items that are wonderful and make my life a little more normal. The biggest challenges are eating on the go, nearly impossible as wheat, barley, and/or rye is in 95% of processed food, eating in rural areas, vacations to less progressive social climates, and the increased cost of foods. Essentially I want to post this to see if any other fly fishers are gluten-free and have recipes or tips to share and to share some of the things that I have found that I really like.
