On the SIXTH Gluten-Free Day of Christmas
my Health Coach gave to me . . .
. . . the gift of a journal
You’ll be learning so much as you go through your gluten-free journey. Keep a journal or notebook for all of your new information, organized to best fit your needs.
Using a journal or on-line organizer:
*List which flours can replace white/wheat flours – Read about flours here
*List the hidden names for gluten or other allergens
*Record foods that are gluten-free – Star the ones you like!
*Keep track of the companies that are gluten-free
and what they offer
*Print out the recipes you will/do try –
always note what works and what doesn’t
*List the companies you call to see if their product is gluten-free,
and if it’s safe for you
(**Be careful here as companies change ingredients often!)
*Write down new foods you try and your thoughts.
Would you buy them again, were they good?
*List any recipes or groups you follow on Pinterest
(Don’t forget to add us to your list! Check us out here!)
*Keep track of any reactions that occurred from foods eaten
Always write down reactions you have to foods. This helps pinpoint if there is any relationship with certain foods, or if you possibly have another intolerance or allergy. You may see a pattern and figure out foods to stay away from by writing down your reactions. This is an important step to help determine which foods may cause reactions.
As you continue to learn, these lists will be very beneficial to you. Simply keep everything in a journal, notebook, or organized on your computer. Create information to work best for you.
Use it, refer to it, and share it!
Give yourself the gift of a journal
this holiday season!
Buy yourself a pretty new journal to keep you motivated.
(Or ask a loved one to pick one out for you!)
Get yourself set up so you WILL write things down and keep organized
while you continue to learn on your gluten-free journey.
