Rob has had pretty severe sinus issues for years… like since I met him – 11 years ago! Last year he had surgery and had to have a repeat again the end of September. Something is obviously causing these issues. We had tried gluten free in the past – but once he was tested for celiac, we decided to go back to gluten filled eating.
After his last surgery, he decided he was going to cut out dairy and gluten and see if it helped. We are pretty sure it is the gluten that is bothering him, but dairy is a known irritant for sinus issues. About 6 months back, we took Harper off diary milk. She would have these random throwing up issues. Like she’d throw up and be done. Every time I’d think she was getting sick and every time it would be a one time occurrence and no one else would get it. My mommy gut told me it was the milk. We took her off of it, started giving her almond milk (which she loves) and she has been great! So needless to say, we have been dairy sensitive for a while anyway.
Gluten free has been very easy for us! There are so many great substitutes out there! The
Our favorite recipes from last week were a fried chicken and garlic mashed potato recipes. Now that doesn’t sound gluten OR dairy free at all huh?! It didn’t even look like it! And it even tasted like the real deal! And… it really wasn’t that much work!
