When 2016 began, I had an inner yearning for this year to be filled with different things. I wanted to celebrate rather than allow previous doom and gloom to invade my family's life. Do I get upset? Yes. Do I get angry? Yes. Do I still cry? Yes. This is a given- a normal reaction that is part of the food allergy journey but in my experience, these "down" events are usually my own way of flushing out the bad and allowing in the good.
After the holidays, I got a package with the newest Glutino product- BIG Pretzels! (Sorry, I felt compelled to capitalize it). As I was munching away to try them out, I realized that this was my much-needed new year push- I wanted BIG, new things to happen. As I crunched, I thought. As I thought, I was inspired. Not in my usual BIG way with recipes but BIG ways in a different light. These are the things that I realized I must do to have an awesome year and I hope that everyone considers them as well. After all, life is too short not to know how to harness your inner peace (or, in this case..piece) ;)

Allow Peace Into Your Life
It's a new year- let the past go. Don't dwell on it, don't obsess on what you cannot fix just move forward. Learn to breathe again. Take time to use what works well for you and what does not. Make sure that your diet is healthier, better and strive to make it tastier and enjoyable like it should be. Minimize all around- something as simple as an afternoon time out with a pretzel snack will allow you to clear your mind and let you start thinking about those silly thoughts that you are finding it difficult to grasp. It's a proven fact that carbs are important and necessary to produce glucose, your main source of energy. Realize that those broken pieces of pretzel in the bottom of the bag are not just crumbs- they are a part of a different recipe.
