We are entering our fourth week grain free. Marlin has stuck faithfully to the diet, along with Josh, and i have noticed a big difference in both of them. Josh in more subtle ways, like no nightmares and no joint pain. Marlin? Well, let's just say that i'm seeing a spring to his step that's been missing for longer than i want to remember. Before we started this, he literally could hardly function. He'd fall into bed at night, exhausted beyond measure, and wake up as exhausted as when he went to bed. And now? He comes home and has this little wicked gleam in his eyes! And i LOVE it!!! However, i don't believe it's just the grain free diet that's causing him to feel human again. It's something else, something that i'm not going to share yet. It's our secret and i don't think most of you are ready to handle this secret yet. So you'll have to wait until i feel you're ready. ;)
So, we're looking at keeping wheat out of our diets, at least at home, indefinitely. We'll probably add brown rice, oats, buckwheat and rye back in, but not yet. Unfortunately, i have to admit that i slipped yesterday at fellowship meal and i've been paying the price. I just had to have some of those yummy tortilla's and little bite sized cherry desserts at church, and ever since i've been sluggish and bloated. Yuck! I guess i deserve it, aye?
