Gluten Free is the Way to Be… Well at Least for Me!

Gluten is a protein composite found in foods processed from wheat and related grains such as barely. It is what gives elasticity to dough and rise and gives it texture. Gluten was once an unheard of word but is now well known and you can find many gluten free meals at restaurants now. Some of the bodies issues with ingesting Gluten range from Celiac Disease, digestive discomfort, to allergies. I myself have a gluten allergy. It affects my breathing and makes me feel like I have the flue. It is something that I developed later in life during my early twenties and I have struggled with it ever since. Being allergic to Gluten has forced me to shot therapy and to a very clean, natural diet.

I am basically on a meat, veggie, and fruit diet. I stay away from man made foods like pastas and don’t eat fried food. Yes, that means no fried venison back strap for me….I know it’s sad! My wild game is usually always grilled. In my opinion there is no cleaner meat than that of a deer you harvested and butchered yourself! I don’t have to worry about cross contamination with wild game I have harvested and processed myself. I diet and exercise to keep my health on the right path. A healthy huntress is a happy huntress! Eating clean and staying healthy go hand and hand with hunting and fishing. Rabbit, ducks, dove, quail, turkey, wild hogs, antelope, exotic deer, and goats…… These are all animals that can be found in my freezer that were harvested by myself or a family member. Grouper, Snapper, Dorado, Wahoo, Swordfish, and flounder are some of my favorite fish to eat and catch. We always have a surplus of fish, and during shrimping season I go down to the docks and get shrimp that was caught the same day. I have even been out oystering, which isn’t as fun as it sounds. I enjoy bringing home the bacon….literally! I love wild hog! It’s great on the BBQ pit, ha ha! What I really meant by that is I get a great satisfaction harvesting and bringing home my own food!

I still to this day struggle with my health, but staying active and eating clean has helped me tremendously. My lifestyle and hobbies help keep me happy and healthy.

Gluten free menus in restaurants have become more and more common in the last few years which has helped, but the biggest contributor to my health has been the animals we harvest!
