It was 50 years ago  
Well, yesterday actually but yesterday was MBC day so I waited a day to commemorate 50 years of instant noodles. The stuff that Inuyasha loves almost as much as a certain pair of Mikos.

One of the things I miss most about not being able to eat wheat anymore is ramen.

Tried these ones? They're not bad.

I've bought them a couple of times. They aren't really that much like real ramen.

Yeah it's really hard to find good substitutes isn't it? If you're anything like me, you're an all or nothing person...if it ain't the real deal, it's not good enough kind of thing.

My mum's partner has been trying to adapt to the gluten free diet since he was diagnosed about a year or two ago, and it's a bastard finding stuff that he can stomach. He was already hard to feed due to a botched gastric bypass years and years ago, now he's next to impossible! The worst thing is, he craves gluten products now like an addict craves their fix (that's how he put it anyway, and after being addicted to peth for some time after an accident, he's got some insight!) Keeps "forgetting" or treating himself because he's been "good", even though he knows that just ruins all the good work he has done AND that he's going to pay for it on the porcelain throne later.

I'm okay with gluten, it's wheat I have a problem with, so I can still have stuff with barley and corn and haven't run into any sort of withdrawal. Within 10- 15 minutes of eating wheat in any form I start to hurt all over and get a massive migraine. There are some gastric problems too but nothing to the level of someone with gluten intolerance.

About a month after I cut wheat out and was feeling somewhat normal and healthy for the first time in over a year I was stupid enough to try to eat it again and got slapped down by my body. Apparently after a long spell without a food you are intolarant too the reaction is worse if you eat it again. I only forgot once after that. I was helping set up for a meeting and putting cookies on a tray and without thinking popped a broken one in my mouth.

Pavlovian conditioning does work, eventually.
