Cheater, Cheater, Gluten Eater!!!

That’s right folks, after 7 months, approximately 216 days of being Gluten Free, I am officially a cheater gluten eater.  In the middle of June 2010 I found out that I have celiac’s disease.  Since that day I have not knowingly, willingly or purposefully ingested anything containing gluten… until today.  It has been a long road and quite a struggle to keep “clean”.  My self-control has always won out and knowing that I would have a tummy ache and worse, was always a deterrent.  This is what was worth it:


 1.  Bourekas are a cheese filled, pastry puff delight!  They were introduced to me by a family from Israel who goes to the school I teach at.  They are AMAZING!  Bourekas are one of my favorite glutenous foods that I have not figured out how to make a gluten-free substitute of.  They were SO worth the tummy ache.

Red Velvet Cake


2.  Red Velvet Cake… enough said.  (This picture is a much sexier version of the cake I ate but it looks every bit as delicious!)

French Bread


3.  While I was at it, I had a piece of French bread with butter.  I almost cried it was so good.  How I have longed for you bread and finally we met and had a grand old-time in my belly!

This will be the last cheat day for at least 7 more months.  I enjoyed it while it lasted but felt quite guilty.  I came home and made gluten-free pasta with à la vodka sauce and gluten-free pumpkin cupcakes to make up for my indulgences today.

  1. I was reminded of Tempelton’s Smorgasbord in the afternoon on cheat day 🙂
