I broke up with gluten.Hands down, it was one of the most profound shifts of my life. Giving up gluten was my first step in really exploring how food affects me. I spent my life up until then being detached from the sensations I experienced, with no recognition that how I was eating was directly impacting every aspect of my being. Until I started to be able to feel the difference in myself, I wasn’t able to access some pretty deep things I’d not realized I was missing.What my own ‘break up’ allowed me to access was a deeper understanding of the crucial role food plays in our lives, and a foundation for more learning and self-discovery.Being without a food that caused me so much discomfort – and to be honest, one I was truly addicted to – opened up a door to find someone I had never expected to find. She was more fun, more fit, more vibrant: truly, the happiest version of myself I’d ever known, and one whom I have discovered has a lot more potential that I’d given her credit for.Break Up with Gluten is a practical guide to explore how your relationship with food - in this case, gluten specifically - impacts your world.
