And so our story begins...

So, I recently started an exclusion diet to figure out what kinds of things upset my stomach. The answer: everything. Wheat and dairy are the huge ones so far though. I can basically say goodbye to things like this:
(Peaches and cream swiss roll cake)

And start saying hello to:
  • unexpected weightloss
  • rice
  • unexpected rice
  • tons of food experiments
  • rice experiments
Seriously people, after I got over the depressing vastness of my dietary restrictions, I realised what a great opportunity it was for me to experiment with delicious food!

For instance, I make an incredible amount of soup (admittedly it's for my job, but it's still tasty), and I recently discovered torte. It's so good!

Without realising it, I've become one of those hipsters who cut out gluten and dairy, who know the difference between fast cooking oats and steel cut oats, who eat quinoa, and who prefer wild or brown rice to white rice. I'm a little ashamed, but I'm sure I'll get over it.

Welcome to my food adventure.
