      “A kick in the glutenus-maximus!!!” Ha ha…that Peter is funny! :) You guys have the best advice. I have so wanted to give GF a try to see if I notice a difference. Which is a good question for you two…what were the biggest changes you noticed once going GF?

      • Peter


        You should DEFINITELY give it a try. I really can feel the difference when going back the other direction, although while you’re weening yourself off you don’t notice the improvement as much. Not sure why we can’t notice when we’re getting healthier, maybe because it’s more gradual than relapsing.

        I would go at least a couple weeks, ideally 30 days before reincorporating – that’s when you’ll REALLY know.

        Hi Darin!
        I’m glad you found this helpful, I agree with Peter give it a try and see how you feel. As for the hardest part…it was cutting out the bread. And there are a lot of gf breads but it’s not about replacing one type of bread for another, because bread is not the healthiest thing to be consuming in the first place.

        I never realized how much bread I was eating, and replacing it meant spending more time cooking to fill that meal with more whole foods. For example, I would take Almond Butter and Jam Sandwiches to work and I replaced that with salads & grain bowls, both of which take more time. So at first that was a struggle but totally do-able. Hope that helps, and let us know if we can help you!

      I definitely feel a difference when I eat too much gluten (and sugar) but I disagree that it’s easy to eat out as a gluten-free VEGAN.
      Unless all you want is a plain salad! I often find myself while traveling in a restaurant that has absolutely nothing to choose from. If I am local, I know where to go to find something we can “legally” eat (Chipotle, Souplantation, but not much else). Almost every dish contains dairy and or meat in almost every restaurant. It’s a sad commentary on our society IMO.
      At home? Easy-peasy! Traveling? not so much… And this is why I get busted by the TSA for having cucumbers in my carry on! LOL!

        It does depend on where you are traveling but I gotta say…The west coast is pretty easy!

        And you gotta ask for it, because a lot of time it’s not listed. We are pretty picky about the places we go, and I am known to call ahead, check out the menu and yelp before agreeing to a dinning experience.

      loved this episode! i recently also just found those brown rice wraps (for asian rolls, not the food for life ones that you guys mentioned) at jimbo’s and need to use them soon. thank you for all the knowledge you two share. so inspiring!

    • […] 2. You’re vegans AND gluten-free, how do you manage to eat like this on a daily basis? Would you say it’s difficult?  It’s a lot easier than when we started on this journey 5+ years ago. Once you get the hang of it, it’s not so bad. Our best advice would be to create a routine, plan ahead and do your research. We did a podcast that’s really helpful for eating out and being gluten-free. Here’s a link to it: How to Replace Gluten Like It’s NBD. […]
