Thanks! That was pretty much what I was looking for. And yes, I think of it as something along the lines of "2..3..4  5.. days/weeks wheat/sugar free!". Like an AA person or somesuch. It may seem silly, but I think it'll get me through the beginning. I might also try an acupuncture doctor here with rave reviews who includes "addictions/cravings" amongst her treatments. Despite the fact that I'd packed a good deal of snacks ect, this past weekend when I was out all day at a gaming event, I succumbed to the cheeseburger, since it just smelled so good.. and I was sitting near the service area for 3 hours with the group I was with.


Anyhow. Increasing my days being wheat free is something I could cling/hold on to and find motivating.


How much/detrimental does it hurt to just focus on actual wheat at first, while eating the occasional rice, and trying to get ahold of sugar? Will it help at all?


*Chocolate almound flour cookies/WBC baking as I type. I can't even IMAGING what it'd be like to not have my sweet tooth in control of my life. That's just never crossed my mind before. I guess it would be quite liberating... something to ponder...

Wheat Free Tips / Re: Snacks at home

This is an are where I definitly need help. I often leave my place by 7:30 am, and often won't get home till after 8 pm. I need to take all the food and snacks with me when I go that I can carry, and preparation is not one of my first loves to say the least.
 
I discovered that my Omega juicer can mill almond flour, so last week I was munching on the chocolate chip cookie recipe in the WBC.
 
Nuts are a good and easy standby. I should likely double check the ingredients for sugar content, but I recently found a very tasty "BBQ PORK" beef jerky at costco.
 
Otherwise I pack a bottle of homage veggie/fruit juice.
 
I tried making juice-pulp crackers in my dehydrator.. but the first attempt was a dismal failure.
 
Otherwise.. Celery and PB, nuts, I found a jam made from xylitol, brand name XY out of the states, apples/fruit, seaweed snacks, small crunchy dill pickles, and  of course as dark and natural "Bean to Bar" chocolate as I can find. For anyone visiting Toronto, you MUST check out Chocosol, and esp. their Aztec drinking chocolate pucks, if you can, take a tour.  (I'm fairly sure these meet the requirements.. )

THanks for the suggestion Barbara!
 
It absoluetly worked! I rand the almond meal througg a few times. Turns out 3-4 times is optimal, after that it starts truning into a paste. I was thinking of doing a youtube video on it. I am so unbelievably happy! And I never even thought about blanching! Thank you!
 
Costco here sells 1.1kg bags of sliced blanched almonds. I'm looking forward to baking! I just hope I can find a way to make half decent bagels.. not that I eat them alot.. but the idea of never having them is .. scary. :)

Maybe I missed the information somewhere, but I've been tyring to figure out how long it takes for wheat to be out of your system once you stop eating it. I know that all the littel residual effects might take years.. but in terms of not eating it.. for the most part, how long does it take? I want to know that I could keep track of WF days. Thanks.

Hi there,


I was wondering if anyone else on here has had any luck with making their own almond flour. I recently found out that my Omega 8006 juicer does a find job of turning almonds into meal, however it's not quite fine enough to create flour.


Does anyone have any experience with milling their own flour at all? I don't have a vitamix unfortunately, I hear that would do the trick. I live in Winnipeg/MB, and so far the only almond meal source I've found was a $10 3C bag in a health food store, and it's not even flour.  :-[

I made the cheesy egg and turkey muffins from WBC. I sprinkled some parm. on top. I didn't have a muffin tin at the time, so I used 6 small ramekins, they worked perfectly. Most days I have a spinach and fruit smoothie. You can get quite addicted to those!

I recently moved to Winnipeg... leaving everyone I know behind in Ontario. I won't get the vacation time during Christmas to return unfortunately.. but on the up side.. I'm kinda happy. I'm brand new to this wheat free thing. I have a ridiculousely huge and embarrasing wheat belly. Aka I look 7 or 8 months pregnant when I'm not paying attention to my posture. I'm pretty eager to see this thing go!!
 
Being so new to it, I am relieved that I won't have to be wrapped up in the whole holiday meal craziness. I know I break easily, and it takes forever to get back on the wagon so to speak. Can't say how grateful I am for this forum!

Hi there folks...


I'm just starting this whole Wheat Free/Sugar Free lifestyle. I'm hoping to blend juicing/green smoothies together with a wheat free lifestyle for the better.


As for getting started, I know that having food premade, and pre planned is the key to my success. My kitchen is fairly well stocked with a number of WF essentials.. and today (in addition to remembering and honoring those who made today as I know it possible), is set aside for a weeks wort of food prep, experimenting,  and digging in so to speak.


My main challenge: creating a week long meal plan, as well as dehydrated veggie pulp crackers/WF snacks.


Does anyone know of a place that will help build meal plans, or can you suggest your go to staples for various meals, including any make ahead/freeze meals you prepare for the week? Thanks!
