Dairy ugh!

I feel so stupid because every time I have dairy I don’t feel good after. You know when I say I don’t learn from my mistakes, sometimes it is true. Why cheat if you don’t feel good? Just wanted to get that out there and say sorry that I haven’t been blogging a lot. This blog is short but I think that it is meaningful. 

Hope you are having a good summer,

American Girl

Hey, I have some cool news. My younger sister had some gift cards to American Girl Doll and we were looking around to buy something, after her doll got her hair done. Guess what we found? An allergy free lunch. There was chicken and veggies on a stick, an apple and a doctor note. It was so cool because there was an EPI PEN!!!!!!! We took pictures of the lunch and Epi pen. We didn’t buy it. I also want to tell you when we went to lunch I ended up being able to have french fries. YES! I also went to a deli and they were able to put corn beef in a bowl with lettuce and pickles. It was sooo good.
That is all for now,
Lexi

P.S. I learned on this trip that you have to go in with an open mind and to never, EVER, give up on yourself.

OOPS…. DIDN’T MEAN TO SAY THAT…

           Hi, I just wanted to tell you something funny that happened at a restaurant. The waitress came to check on us and said ” I heard you’re gluten and dairy free” and so I said “yes I am. I have been for 2 years.”  Then she said ” THAT SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” So of course I didn’t know what I should say so I said “ya, it is.” After she was done talking to us and asking us if we needed anything else she said  ” once again I hope your food is still good even though it was gluten free.” When she left our table we talked and laughed about how rude she was.

Write a comment if you thought that was rude but funny or if that has happened to you before.

Until the next funny moment,

Questions and answers for Gluten Free Disasters!!!!!!

 I’m back with more news and today it is about tips…

- First question… What if my food gets cross-contaminated?

             -Well first you should write the owner of that restaurant and tell them what happened and how it affected you (only if you are comfortable). Next you should try to go to the bathroom, and lastly just don’t go there again and stick to the places that are yummy and are safe.

- Second question… What do I do if people bully me about what I eat?

             -Um, that’s a tough one. So what I would do is say something positive to yourself and the kid bullying you. This situation happened to me when I first started eating gluten and dairy free food and now except it isn’t about my food. It is about my video and my blog. He is in my class and people tell me he does that because he is jealous and likes me. Though it hurts my feelings I am still proud (by the way I wouldn’t be so confident in myself if it weren’t for you guys reading my blog and my family). I also ignore him.

 I will have more questions later and by the way I will have even more if you guys leave a comment with any questions. So thank you soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much for being soooooooooooooooooo supportive.

Dr.Tom and California

 

  Guess who I saw? DR.TOM! I went to California to celebrate my grandpa’s birthday. It also happened to be on my birthday too! I just turned 11 years old. Ok let’s get back to Dr.Tom. First we drove there and he met us outside of his house. Seconded we walked to his back yard. He was sooooo nice and got gluten free snacks (and Dairy free) and drinks. So THANK YOU DR.TOM! At his house around 6:00pm we watched the sunset on the ocean. It was BEAUTIFUL! After the sunset we went to dinner. I can’t remember the name, but all that I can remember is that amazing sushi. We talked and laughed the whole time. I had an amazing time with Dr.Tom.

I hope we can do it again sometime,

Highland House

What’s up? I went to my older sister’s softball game and after went to dinner. We went to The Highland House. It was my first time eating there, and to tell the truth I was a little nervous. But then I found out that there was no need to be. It was amazing. Our waitress brought me a gluten free menu. There were so many choices, that even includes appetizers. I wanted an appetizer but my mom said “you can only have a main dish.” But I wasn’t sad because the main dishes sounded really good. If you are a vegetarian you can still get an amazing salad. On the gluten free menu I got ribs. They were amazing. The sauce was great and it had lots of juicy meat on it. YUM! My mouth watered when the ribs came to our table. It was messy, but it was worth it. I highly recommend this restaurant to everyone.

Enjoy,

Lexi

2 YEARS DONE A LIFE TIME TO GO!

Hey everyone, I have some great news for you. I HAVE BEEN GLUTEN AND DAIRY FREE FOR 2 YEARS! I truly could not have done this without my friends, family, and you guys reading my blog.

There has definitely been a change in my life since I started my journey. Though there were a lot of struggles, I have made it this far. I am also proud to say that I haven’t thought about quiting my diet for a few months now.

Out of the 2 years I have found different and yummy recipes and restaurants. I have found my top three restaurants. My number one favorite restaurant is Five Guys. My second choice is Jimmy John’s. My third favorite is Red Robin, and many more. My mom also made great pigs in a blanket (which is a hot dog wrapped in gluten and dairy free breading, WE USED PIZZA CRUST!).

That is all for now. Once again thanks for all your support. GOOD LUCK TO ALL OF YOU!

New Years Splash

3, 2, 1… Happy New Year!

Hey guys.  Did you have a great New Years?  Well, I certainly did.  My grandma and grandpa took my mom’s whole side of the family to a waterpark.  That includes my aunt and uncle and 3 year old cousin from Chicago and my other aunt and uncle from Michigan.  We went for 2 days and 1 night.  Our room had 2 queen beds and a couch that a had a pull out bed, some tables and 2 tvs.  I slept in the pull out couch and had a little area to myself.  

On New Years Eve, we had dinner at about 7:30 pm.  We got seated and I got a shirley temple and a Coke.  Special treat!  You get your food by going to an all you can eat buffet and then go back to your table to eat.  My mom called ahead of time to talk about gluten and dairy accomodations.  I didn’t have to get up because they brought me my food.  I had 2 huge and I mean huge chickens and a big plate of french fries.  It was sooooo good.  Throughout the night, I got drinks and ate desserts that I brought from home.  

We played games as a big family with my aunts, uncles, cousin, my grandparents, my parents and my sisters.  We had so much fun that one time we laughed so hard, we cried.  We went to the arcade, played games and got prizes.  My uncle wanted a stuffed animal that was a chicken because it was the brand of his favorite chicken.  We asked our waiter if he could give my uncle a stuffed chicken. The waiter came back and my uncle made a new friend… a chicken friend.

When we finished partying at 12:45 am, we went to bed.  We were sleeping in a snap, yes that fast!

In the morning, there was another buffet.  They told me what I could eat.  I ate a grapefruit, sausage, bacon, ham, hash browns and fruit.  They could have made me eggs, but I didn’t want them.

I had the best time ever on New Years.  I recommend going to Zehnder’s Splash Village Waterpark and I promise you will have the best time ever!!

Until next time

Lexi

Palace!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Guess  who?  ME LEXI!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Have you ever been to a Detroit Pistons game?  Well I just did and it was unbelievable. I had so much fun. My family and I walked around looking for a gf and df place to eat. When we finished walking around we found a little stand. IT WAS PERFICT! I got a italian sausage in an Udi’s hot dog bun and lays chips on the side. If you are 21 and older you can get hooked up with a gf beer.  They also had gf hot dog and chicken.  

 

The Pistons won and scored over 100 points!!!!

Quiting!

Hey everyone!

I’m back and I have some news.  Somebody had commented about how to stick to the gluten and dairy free diet?  The answer is simple…..

BELIEVE IN YOURSELF!

If you believe, you can do anything.  But you still can NOT cheat.  It takes a lot of guts to become gluten free.  So you should take a minute and think about how much better you feel.  So do that right now.

The biggest way to not stop your diet, is if you see how much you accomplished and how much better you feel.  It helps to have your family support you also.

That is all for now.

Keep in mind what I said and you should be totally fine.  I believe in you.

Keep reading, til next blog.
