It's Brian's new past time- hoarding. Hoarding food that is. It's the first time I've become worried about our diet choices for Mr. B. Everyone has heard me rave about the changes we saw after we eliminated gluten from his diet but the older he gets the MORE stuck he becomes on wanting to get food with gluten in it. In the past it was never a problem but this year he has been sniffing it out and if he gets his hands on it he will eat it. Recently, I've been finding food in his bedroom. Food that breaks the diet restrictions and foods that he just isn't allowed to have in large quantities (things that have sugar or artificial colors in them). In the past few weeks I have found breadsticks, Starburst, juice boxes , fruit snacks, and pizza. One of the slices of pizza I found had come from the garbage- disgusting! I'm worried about what the food restrictions are doing to B and how he is reasoning all of this in his brain and how I'm going to work around this new habit.
