I recently posted about productivity and goals. I set an achievable goal for myself for January, but I was a little doubtful of my ability. I feel mostly confident in the creative world…except when it comes to technology. I challenged myself to learn some basic video-editing on Shotcut. Well, my geek hubby keeps elbowing me happily about joining the dark side (I don’t know about that–computers frustrate me still. Oh, and since filming this portrait-layout instead of landscape, I have learned a thing or two about how YouTube works, and my next videos will definitely be more professional.)
Anyhow, as a recovering perfectionist who knows both I and my work are not perfect, I’m going out of my comfort zone and sharing the results of my effort although I cringe at the idea of possible critical viewers. This is a video I made sharing what I wish I knew when I first started the gluten-free lifestyle. I made it because some friends have been wanting to go gluten-free but find it really overwhelming, so I tried to cover the basics, from what types of GF flours to start with for baking, other meal options (including pre-made), best shopping options, and how to thicken sauces. (See show notes for more details.)
Feel free to share with friends you hear of who find out they have a gluten sensitivity and are feeling overwhelmed. If I can help someone on their journey, I feel like a little bit of my health trials are being redeemed for good.
