I have been gluten free since November of 2009. I struggled with years of doctor visits for my massive stomach attacks and no one could find a thing. Eventually I got to a point where I couldn’t eat anything without getting sick.
I made a decision to try the gluten free life. At first it was hard, but eventually I got the hang of it-and knew it was the best thing for me. I immediately felt so much better! The hardest part of it all was that I LOVE BREAD. I tried all the gluten free breads I could find and just couldn’t handle it. They weren’t good.
My boyfriend got a wonderful bread maker with a gluten free setting and we STILL couldn’t get it quite right. I read somewhere that the only bread that tasted like real bread was Udi’s. When I found it at my local supermarket I was so excited. I threw it in my cart without even thinking about it. When I got home I looked at the bag. It looked different. It looked real. Before I knew it I had it open and took a huge bite. At that point I was always very hesitant with trying something new gluten free. But for some reason this bread looked good and felt different. I had to eat it right away.
And OH MY GOODNESS, It tasted NORMAL!! I think that was one of the best days of my life. That day, my life became SO much easier. And the three slices of the Udi’s bread that I ate following that first bite was the first of many slices that helped me to create amazing sandwiches, grilled cheese, garlic bread, bruchetta, etc. (I could go on and on here) Bottom line, I went to the store today and they had gluten free bread, but were out of Udi’s. I walked out with nothing. I will go back every day to check until they have some. I buy it weekly. Thank you so much for bringing bread back into my lovely life. P.S. the bread maker still does get used. But, Udi’s always wins. Shh! Don’t tell!
