I couldn’t just leave you with my Angry Celiac post. It’s Celiac Awareness Month after all.
I was diagnosed with celiac disease five years ago. My life has changed quite a bit since then.
Before my diagnosis, I was sick all. the. time. Like, I couldn’t make plans because I’d never know when my symptoms would strike. For nearly a year, I “lived” like this. I struggled – wondering “Is this just normal? Does everyone live like this? Am I just being weak?”
For dinner tonight, Tank made pesto and served it with fresh mozzarella and tomatoes on a gluten free baguette. While it was incredibly delicious, can these tomatoes really compete with those beauties?
So here I sit. Pining for (a) tomato season and (b) Palestinian tomatoes, which seemed to be perpetually in season and flavorful.
My trip to Germany culminated with a few days in Berlin. Here we met up with Aaron, drank lots of beer and wine, and visited museums and other historical sites — all the while the gents ate tons of bratwurst.
