breakup letter.

After a very scientific process over the past week or so, I have come to the realization I have a gluten intolerance. I was getting very ill for a while after eating certain things and after reading up on gluten intolerance I decided to eliminate it from my diet and see how I felt. AMAZING I tell you. It's hard since there is gluten in a million different things, even ones you wouldn't expect, but it's worth it to not feel that horrible. So, since gluten and I have had a nearly 23 year romance, I thought it only appropriate to write a breakup letter.

Dear Gluten,
It's over. I don't know how else to tell you this. You make me sick. I do hope you take comfort in the fact it's truly me, and not you. We're just a bad combination. Like fire and gasoline. I'd be lying if I said I wouldn't miss you and all of your grainy goodness. But, the truth is, it's worth the temporary heartache to not be completely miserable and in the fetal position. We had a good go, we really did. I do love cupcakes, bread, pasta, and appreciate your starring role. Though, this is how it must be. Don't worry, I won't speak ill of you to others. I won't ruin your reputation or throw your stuff you on the lawn. It will be a challenge finding someone to replace you, but I am confident I am moving in the right direction. Plus, it doesn't help your case that you were really trying to make me fat. I'm sorry it had to end this way and I hope you understand why I have to do this. It's what's best. At least for me anyways.

<3 Chelsea
