Eat more natural foods:
My biggest problem is choosing to eat unhealthy gluten-free foods at the wrong times. Sometimes I eat gluten-free cookies or sweets to fill in for the natural foods or meals I should be eating. That leads me to have horrible crashes later in the day and sometimes ruins my entire day too which isn't good. That's why my first resolution is to eat more naturally gluten-free foods!
Learn to cook more and bake less:
Basically any time I use an oven, it's to bake something delicious. Cookies, brownies, bread, etc. I love baking! As fun as it is, it's also not the healthiest for me and doesn't always leave me to feel the best. That's why I want to teach myself how to cook more gluten-free recipes instead of baking! That way I can make things with meat, rice, vegetables, and much more to get myself feeling better.
Get ready to cook and bake gluten-free on my own:
Since I'll be going to college this year and living on my own, I really want to learn hot to cook and bake gluten-free 100% on my own. I usually do ok but sometimes get the help from my mom who is great at baking. I might as well learn now so I'll be ready when the time comes to make my own food! But I think I'll be just fine :)
Be more cautious and vocal when dining out:
This is one thing I've been horrible at. I'm usually pretty good at letting waiters know that I can't have gluten, but I almost always end up getting glutened anyways. I know this is an issue so many deal with and an issue I definitely need to get better at. My biggest gluten-free resolution is to be more cautious with what I order at gluten-free restaurants as well as be more vocal about being gluten-free. I want to finally feel safe while dining out and I will strive to do so in 2015.
