So, I've recently figured out that I am (or have become?) lactose and gluten intolerant. This means I need to change some stuff about how I eat. Mostly I think it's a good thing, and I it will further reduce the amount of processed foods I eat. I always tell my kids that if you can't see the food that you're eating, it's not that good for you. Like, if you're eating an apple, you know the ingredients. But I'm contemplating a trip to the grocery store. And I want some sweet goodies to eat, and things feel complicated. A friend posted this NPR piece on the Face Book, and it resonates, profoundly, for me today. I'll figure out how to make a vegan, gluten free cupcake. Someday. Today, maybe I'll just eat a banana.
