Many of you who read this blog have strong opinions about food. As people who have to eat gluten free (for a variety of reasons), we’re forced to think about food and read food labels more than most people.
I was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2000. Since then, the way I eat and cook has changed dramatically. At the time, I was not someone who particularly loved cooking, but I didn’t dislike it either. As I was forced to learn to cook new foods, I found that I greatly enjoyed the challenge.
Along with changes in cooking came changes in shopping. Reading food labels was eye opening! For me, it’s been a good thing. It means I have given more thought to the food I eat, and not just regarding whether the food is gluten free. Reading food labels makes me think about what I’m putting into my body. I also give more thought to how and where the food is grown.
Every time I choose organic over non-organic, grass fed over corn fed, non-gmo over gmo, etc., I hope that my choice makes a statement.
