There's no doubt that changing your diet can be hard.
Never mind having to learn which new foods you can or can't eat; now you'll be faced with learning how to cook with them, too.
You worry that you'll be stuck at the dinner table staring at all the familiar foods that your family is eating, while you pick away at your "special" diet foods.
You're afraid you'll waste precious time or money on ingredients you'll use once and then never use again. Or worse, the foods you make with those ingredients will turn out tasting. . . awful.
You want to feel as if you're still part of the family, just like everyone else.
You want to be able to make meals and desserts that taste incredible, that get your taste buds tingling with delight, and that everyone else will happily share with you, too--without spending twice as long in the kitchen preparing two (or three) separate meals to accommodate everyone.
And you want to be secure in the knowledge that what you eat will support your body's best health--without feeling deprived or worried that you'll "cheat" and suffer a nasty reaction.
