It's expensive. It's a treat. But I'm so glad it's an option!
When I made my last meal plan, I asked Ethan if there was anything in particular he wanted me to make. He could only think of one thing... Burgers. And a burger isn't a burger unless it's between two pieces of bread/bun.
Without GF bread, Ethan wouldn't have been able to eat the one thing he wanted :( I don't want them to feel deprived, to think about what they can't have. Ethan already has anxiety about eating some things lately. He tells me they will make his stomach hurt. I've had to reassure him that I won't give him anything that will make his stomach hurt. He remembers vividly what effect eating wheat had on him. It might be a good thing that our trial food ended up being pizza... He hasn't asked for it since that night! When I get brave I'll try GF pizza crust mixes etc. I would love to have the pizza option again! We were eating pizza on premade crusts about once a week. It was convenient and relatively easy and nutritious!
In the meantime, we have many naturally GF choices - oats (still using non-GF ones for now), rice, potatoes, millet, and quinoa (haven't tried quinoa yet). I just miss our gluten-y options sometimes...
