A no Gluten (Latin for glue) diet is really not difficult (yeah, right!) if you bring in things like rice bread, millet and other non-gluten baked goods and eat whole grains (sans the gluten ones). Foods for life is my favorite for the bread and Trader's has the rice. Another fantastic brand is Namaste' (Whole Foods) their Spice Cake (mix) is FABULOUS and so easy to make. It's 3 ingredients and 5 minutes of mixing then bake. Yum.

I did 6 months of no gluten (which includes oats, barley, and rye BTW) no soy, no dairy and forgot what other no's at the moment. I did fine and really haven't gone back since. I do have an occasional wheat bread (only if it's fabulous) when I'm out to eat.

Good luck.

I'm sure you know that wheat allergies are a Celiac disease. The web is loaded with info and recipes.

flavor combo: stumbled on this while picking thru the left-overs at C3 on Sunday during the taping of an upcoming lab project. Took some white rice, black beans, yogurt, agave syrup and fresh bananas, mixed in bowl - high protein and yummy without being too sweet. Ate for dinner, but prolly a better breakfast option.

Ten days ago I quit wheat entirely, just for kicks to see what that felt like. I had a wickedly intense headache for 3 days every evening; a sort of odd feeling like pressure behind my eyes...detoxing? Then things improved and I have more energy now. Today at work I ate a blueberry muffin with wheat and I feel like, well, a blueberry muffin now. Going back to no gluten for at least a couple of more weeks.

I've always loved the phrase "you are what you eat." It's in the lexicon of dietary speak now. I didn't know where it came from so I Googled it and found the answer:
The English version of the phrase was made popular or may have even been coined by Victor H Lindlahr who published the book titled "You Are What You Eat" in 1940 (I have not found any earlier written reference to the phrase.
Victor Lindlahr was the son of Dr Henry Lindlahr, who is considered to be "the founder of American Naturopathy, or perhaps more accurately stated, the bringer of the German Nature Cure to the States". Before he became a doctor Henry Lindlahr attended the clinic of Father Sebastian Kneipp (1824-1897) in Bavaria, to attempt to be cured of diabetes using the natural methods that Father Kneipp employed, such as a strict fruit and vegetable diet. (He did get cured of his diabetes.)

I found 12 books on nutrition and diet on Amazon and have never read any — now perhaps I will.

I'm eating Avocado on Fit for Life's rice bread, toasted. It's one of my favorite morning foods. It feels good...

I am awakening everyday to my body's needs. I find that I feel much like the food I ingest. When I eat a pancake, I feel hearty and satisfied. When I eat zucchini, I am alive with kinetic energy...

When my hearing is "on", I am able to select the right foods for the day. Sometimes it is fasting, sometimes it is a burger and sometimes it is celery. It is amazing when I get out of my thoughts and start hearing, what happens.

Eat food that is alive. Get outside to connect to Mama earth and get grounded. Breath. Bless and be grateful for the food. We live in bounty.
And oh yeah, chew, chew, chew. ;-)
