I am not doing too badly with my new gluten-free diet–though I have decided to cut myself a bit of slack and not worry when I inadvertently eat something that has gluten. Saying that–did you know that licorice has wheat flour in it? I didn’t until I had enjoyed six of the little devils (the nibs not the whole long string thing) and decided to look on the package. Right under the words sucrose-fructose (I know, I know–sugar is no better for me than gluten) were the words wheat flour.

I did not spit the offending cherry flavoured nuggets out, but neither did I take another handful. Alas and alack.

I have received a lot of good advice and cheering on from you my blogger friends–so if anyone wants to read some great thoughts on the subject–just read my post from the other day Am I Crazy? There are a lot of wonderful comments.

And changing the subject here–I have a new blog just about writing–if you are interested, go to

writers experience everything twice.

Okay, enough self promotion for one day–but if you want to share your gluten-free advice feel free.
