So, I have been doing some research. This was brought on by a recent bout of abdominal pains and heart burn. I must admit, I have slipped and eaten things that I KNOW I must stay away from. However, this time I have been good. So why am I having symptoms? Headaches, breakouts, cramps, they have all been present. 

I found this article about Lectins. Turns out there is SOOOOO much more to this gluten thing. I was simply focusing on gluten but there may be more to it. I have been eating beans as well as cheese and both of them are listed as a food on the lectin list that some us us should avoid. They say people who believe they have a gluten intolerance may actually have a lectin intolerance. Now the thing here is things you would avoid with gluten are still part of the lectin list. So you may experience some relief but still have occasional symptoms. WHAT? 

By the time it is all said and done I will not be able to eat anything. The link above will take you to an article I was reading that explains this a little better. Enjoy. Good luck.

I am a single mother new to the world of gluten free. I recently learned I have a gluten allergy and I have been learning to live without gluten.
