I really feel foolish sharing this, but I want to share this so others can benefit.
What’s Been Going On?
In the last few weeks I have felt like my energy level has been tapering off. I have also been more irritable, achy, and have generally had a blah feeling. These are all the classic signs of eating gluten but I was gluten.
Or so I thought.
All this time one of the staples of my diet has had gluten all along – the Starbucks Java Chip Frappuccino.
Now to be fair, I am not blaming them for telling me that it did not have gluten and then it actually did. No, I assumed it didn’t have gluten and chose it as my regular drink from there.
How Did I Come To This Assumption?
I am really not sure. What I think may have happened was that I was drinking a different flavored Frappuccino and then decided to try the Java Chip one day. I guess I thought that since the only difference was the inclusion of chocolate chips that there shouldn’t be an issue. Boy was I wrong.
No looking back it makes perfect sense that I have been feeling so crummy lately due to getting a
healthy dose of gluten every day.
Where Do I Go From Here?
I’m going to stop ordering that Frappuccino. I think I may just forego Starbucks for a while also. I had been wanting to make the switch from buying a Frapp everyday to making my own at home so this sound like a good time to do that.
This is really one of those duh moments. Oh well, I wil be more careful in not assuming that something doesn’t have gluten in it.
