The Journey Begins...

So it has been a tough few days.  On Tuesday we cleaned out a good portion of our pantry, and donated the items we won't be eating any more to Rob's brother Jim.  It was a lot of food as we had just stocked up several times in the past few weeks.  Among the things we gave away were rice, rice-a-roni's, instant potatoes, augratin potatoes in a box, cereals, breads, flour, cake mixes, tortilla chips, tortillas, some crackers.  It was about 6 boxes worth, and we probably have a good 2 or 3 more boxes that we have found.  We also shouldn't eat Margarine so had to switch to butter, we had 2 large tubs of margarine spread so we'll see if his brother wants that or not.   Then Yesterday we went to Good Earth, Rob was really struggling with wanting a piece of his Birthday Cake we had picked up on Monday from Costco (Carrot Cake w/filling), and so we went to go get some of the ingredients to make a cake at home.  We picked up several types of grain free flours Buckwheat, Almond, Tapioca, some Agave Nectar, found some Cod Liver Oil, that doesn't have a nasty fish taste since Rob is supposed to take that now too.  We came home and made a cake.

Well the day before (August 23rd, 2010) Rob's 40th Birthday we got some scary news from the Dr, he felt that Rob is sensitive/allergic to grains and they were creating a constant inflammatory process in his body.
