Over the River and through the woods . . .

We spent Thanksgiving at my Grandmother's house and had a great time. My parents drove down and were there. One sister lives nearby and the other drove up with her fiance. My brother was there from college and my in-laws came as well.

My grandparents have lived there for 20 years, and every time we have gone to visit I ended up with a headache at some point in time. EVERY TIME. I thought there was something I was allergic to that grew there.

This time, I didn't have a headache.

The only difference is how I ate.

Typically, there are lots and lots of baked goods and I splurge.

This time, I severely limited the wheat products. Even for Thankgiving dinner, I only had tastes of things that contain wheat.

And no headache! There were a couple of days, I could feel some congestion starting and so I became stricter with myself. On the whole though, I felt great.

Wow. What a difference.


  1. You go girl, that would be so hard to do! I actually lost 1.5 pounds over the holiday, if you can believe that. I'm sure I've found it since, but anyway....
