  1. JoLynn,

    I’m honestly a bit ashamed of what I’m going to ask you. For months I’ve been following your blog and reading it religiously but I always skim over the weekly meal plan posts you do. This week I decided to take a look. I’ve been wanting to branch out in the healthfood world….so here’s my question….Does gluten-free food taste significantly different?

    1. Hey Chelsea. It just depends. If you buy gluten free replacements, then yes, some do taste different. Pasta and breads take some getting used to. But if you eat foods that are naturally gluten free, which I TRY to do most of the time, then it is just regular food. 🙂 Does that answer your question?

      1. Sorry to be nosey and butt-in; but I would also add (when people ask me similar questions) once you cleanse/detox your palette you start to taste the food for what it naturally is. Meaning, their own vibrant flavors shine through and you are not craving and addicted to preservatives and other man-made refined items. I have noticed having to eat gluten-free just naturally forces me in the direction of natural whole foods. They are cheaper and easier to work with. Our family has to be also sugar free so some of what I am saying goes to that as well.
        In short; the food may taste different to begin with but that is because you body is working against you because it is still craving the other stuff. Once getting over detox period, food (in our humble opinions) will taste better and be more enjoyable.

  2. Hi Jo-Lynne. So happy to have found your all encompassing mommy blog! 🙂

    Thanks for hosting this allergy friendly recipe share. For my first submission, I’ve posted a chocolate chunk granola pretzel bar (free of the top 8 most common food allergens and refined sugar).
