Two-Week Gluten-Free Challenge

Oh this is going to force me to be quite creative.  Aside from the obvious no bread no pasta no cookies no pastries, I also probably won't be able to have gravies, soups, and sauces.  Flour's in everything.  Actually, I won't be able to have most: ketchups, soy sauces, mustards, mayos.  It will be very difficult to eat out, but at least telling the waiter that I'll go into anaphylactic shock from the slightest consumption of gluten, than telling the waiter I'm vegan. So this challenge will be easier socially. 

I'm worried about breakfast. I love cereal, I can't believe I won't be able to have cereal for two weeks.  I refuse to waste my money on gluten-free cereals, I'm going to make this challenge very student-budget-friendly, I'm not going to buy any special gluten-free products.  Gluten-free oats are 3 pounds.  I buy my oats for like 79p. So, no.  Apparently oats are naturally gluten-free, but they're not made in a gluten-free environment..and I'm going to do this...properly.. Oh I might cave after a couple of days.  I had polenta porridge for breakfast this morning, was quite good.  I had it with sugar and chestnuts with a splash of milk at the end. Mmmm. 

I'll be putting up what I'm eating on Facebook

Two weeks!  I'm going out for some gluten-free baked goods now.
