I see there are many recipes of paleo pancakes, brownies, ice cream, cinnamon rolls (oooh myy, looks soo good..), etc. Is this something you include in your diet, or do you stay away from baking and keep it totally clean?

I certainly agree that there are many paleo treat recipes and, yes, I've pinned quite a few of them. But have I made them? Only a few and only for special occasions when hosting other people. (Often, they turn out a little dissapointing.)... (more)

Relax. You appear to be intolerant to gluten and the only thing to do is to eat a normal Paleo diet and give yourself a break. Getting some counseling for your eating concerns/anxiety may be helpful, too.
