Craving old favorite foods :(

I don’t know what triggered this but I woke up this morning craving several foods I have had to stop eating since February of 2010 because of being diagnosed with Celiac Disease. I would kill for a great piece of bread, Italian Bread to be exact. I also have a taste for a juicy burger on a pretzel bun. God I also want a decent bowl of pasta.  Bread and pasta for some reason are the two things I would love to be able to eat one more time. Having Celiac Disease isn’t fun and maybe being on this diet only for a year and a half has something to do with it or maybe it’s because I saw a Bertolli commercial about pasta and that’s what triggered this. Who knows why ? Many have tried to figure me out. LOL

I do know that this will pass (Please Lord let this pass) I know I CANNOT eat these foods again, the pain from accidentally  ingesting gluten ( a local pizza place offers gluten-free pizza.)  and the memory of the pain I was in for two days helps me tell myself “NO”!!!. A friend of mine who is wise and my bestest friend in the whole world reminded me that all my life these were my comfort foods and maybe recent issues in my life (stress) has triggered the urge for these foods. Makes sense right? I will keep telling myself this today, hoping it will help the cravings  pass.
