So. I’ve decided that, if I have to live gluten free, which I do, thank you body of mine, then by god, I’m going to do it as deliciously as possible. While doing research, I’ve found that paleo-friendly recipes tend to do gluten free in such a way as to avoid tastes and textures that my picky palate rejects out of hand. For those keeping tabs, that includes soy in all of its forms (which is more of an allergy that runs in the family and I’m not willing to chance), avocado, egg substitutes, artificial sweeteners, most hot spices, and all of those crazy salt substitutes. Have you ever had diet salt? That low-sodium crap? Yeah, that shit don’t fly with me. It tastes like metal and turns my stomach. If it comes to low-sodium shit, I’d rather use less salt than some fucked-up replacement. Anyway, I’m getting off topic here. The point of all this is that I’m choosing the paleo diet instead of a simply gluten-free one, because it’s easier to just try new things instead of trying, and failing, to substitute out wheat flour in everything I eat. I am nothing if not lazy. But here’s hoping that that’ll change as I lose weight. I hear skinny people have more energy and are less likely to be as desperately lazy because they don’t have to drag a whole extra person worth of weight with them everywhere they go. That’s just a rumor, of course.
