Over the years we have shared many moments together here on this blog on the topic of “change”.
I have written numerous times about how I enjoy “change”
“I like change and I like to change often“ talking about my 6th living room sofa.
“I like to change up my holiday décor each year” never adhering to any traditions.
“I change the linens and accessories in my bedroom” often!
To some of you this probably sounds like way too much work.
I’ve suggested to you on numerous occasions,
“Go ahead, change it up. Embrace the new. Take the ‘Mod’ from MODMISSY and “Mod-ify”!
Well here’s the thing…..I recently found myself ‘eating’ those words!
This past year I experienced a huge change in my life – I became gluten-free.
And if there’s one thing you should know about me is that wheat/gluten played a large part in my diet and lifestyle.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner were all about bread, pasta and baked goods.
In fact one of my very first blog posts was Stand With Style April 2011 where I wrote that life gets better and tastes better when things are elevated. Like my delicious homemade Buttermilk Apple Cake. (made with wheat flour!)
It has been a big adjustment figuring out what to put on my dessert tray, in my pasta bowl and my bread basket.
Definitely a year of learning and maybe now I am a bit more understanding of how ‘change’ is not always an easy experience.
I am adapting though; can you tell which chocolate cake is the gluten-free version!!??
