"It took me a few weeks to wrap my brain around the concept of preparing meals without any grains. I started cutting back, and then one day decided it was time to eliminate them. I took it ONE decision/meal at a time, and that was two years ago. About 6 months later I also cut out dairy and other cross-reactive foods. In addition to the paleo dietary recommendations, I avoid nightshades due to my autoimmunity and follow(ed) recommendations from GAPS (bone broth, probiotics, etc.)."
