|Our beautiful and tasty (non-gluten free)|
wedding cake, Sept. 6, 2009
Now, as we approach our one year anniversary, I am planning to eat the top tier of the wedding cake as again this is a tradition that I always wanted to follow. However I am very certain that it will make me sick. I have been beyond diligent when it comes to eating gluten free. My husband and family and friends have been super supportive and I can say with certainty that I feel a million times better than I ever have before.

When I was first diagnosed I read Elisabeth Hasselbecks' book “G-Free diet”, she spoke of her own experiences when she caved into her cravings and paid for it each and every time. I can honestly say that I have NEVER caved into any cravings I have had. I have followed the gluten free diet to a T. I have been even at times on the verge of obsessive when it came to the foods that I ate. And now I am torn. Do I cave into my desire to follow a tradition that I always imagined I would follow? Or do I avoid the oh so tasty wedding cake from the best day of my life and wonder what I’m missing?
I know that people are going to say I should not do this under any circumstances and that it is the worst thing I can possibly do, but to those people I want to ask; haven’t you ever felt this way before?
I had told my husband after having become gluten free that I planned on eating the top tier of our wedding cake on our one year anniversary and then staying home in my pj’s just in case the gluten takes over my body and I am left feeling like complete and total garbage. I am sure that many are laughing at this, but it is the truth.
