So the transition to gluten free in our household has been an annoying one for me, and possibly a health impacting one. While my spouse is enjoying better overall health from the removal of gluten from her diet, it has reduced and changed the way I eat as well.

While I don't mind the assist these changes has given to my own weight loss, I'm not taking in enough protein. How do I know this? I donate plasma twice a week and they've noted a drop in my levels. I don't eat a lot of bread in my preferred diet, but enough of the foods I choose include some form of bread product. In an effort to make sure there's enough GF bread for her and the kids, I'm trying to eat as little of it as possible.

Also? I not only like wheat bread, I feel better when I eat it. Go figure, eh? So now I'm facing a tough choice: try to find other things to supplement my protein intake that doesn't involve the bread I'm so used to, or keep my own wheat-product stash someplace nobody else can get to it. Yay.

For now, I'm going to start with trying to eat more eggs, and I've found some tasty sounding beans & rice recipes that can be done in just the crock pot.

Wish me luck?
