My Fat Liver

One ultrasound and 2 blood tests later I have a confession to make.
My liver is fat. 
As in fatty liver, but not because I'm an alcoholic. The wee amount of alcohol I consume would embaress my German and Irish great-great Grandparents who drank and brewed beer their way into the American Dream. 
SURPRISE, but who knew eating shitty, but delicious foods can make your liver fatty which makes your gallbladder hurt which, of course, makes your liver hurt.
Long story short my traitorous liver does not cause me pain if I stear clear of food with gluten in it.
I know.
I've become one of "those" people.
Seriously though I freaked out for a few months, bought a GOOP cookbook (it is actually HELPFUL, don't judge me) and have spent too much money baking and trying gluten free alternatives.
