Lots of people over-indulge at Thanksgiving. But those of us with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity don't necessarily need to overindulge to feel horrible the day after -- all we need is a tiny crumb of some gluten-containing food.
If this describes you today, I have plenty of sympathy -- we've all been there, despite our best efforts!
When people ask me what it feels like to get glutened, I describe it as a bad stomach flu ... one I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy. But I hate the symptoms of fatigue and brain fog just as much as the gastrointestinal issues, if not more. I cover the gory details in What Happens When You Get Glutened?
There's not much you can do to stop the reaction once it's started, but there are a few strategies you can try to ease your suffering. If you're suffering today due to Thanksgiving missteps, check out Recovering from an Accidental Glutening -- there may be ideas in there that can help.
