GF and CF and SF oh my!!!
Food has such a big impact on our bodies. I like Jenny Mac's analogy, if you don't think what we eat/drink affects the brain, walk into any bar in America. I already knew food had an impact on my kid's behavior before Gabe was diagnosed. I don't think sensitivity has to be a rash, or swollen something or another; but I cut out the HFCS, high fructose corn syrup, and artificial coloring, because my children act like monsters when they have it. Food can leave its mark by headache, fatigue, tummy ache, energy boost, or make us feel like one hundred bucks. I'm excited to start this new journey, and am ever grateful to my fellow bloggers living GFCF that have inspired me and taught me a few things too.

I apologize for my insane usage of parentheses in this post, but I am too tired to grammatically correct this post. This apology will have to due, cheers!
