It happened one night…


Since my husband and I changed our diet a few weeks back, I have noticed remarkable changes. I am continuing to eat gluten free and dairy free-that has not changed.  However, I am looking for healthier alternatives to packaged gluten free products.  One disadvantage is that I have to now cook and bake more than…

Can I just say….

How the food industry tricks you


One of my favorite things to do at night is to surf Youtube.  You can find all kinds of movies, documentaries, and useless information.  But, you can also find useful stuff too. Take this video I found last night:  Warning: Strong language! In it, some of you favorite foods such as hazelnuts and orange juice,…

Is gluten free-healthy?


In a word, no.  But as you can see in the above picture, there are lots of ways to be gluten free, and healthy too. But it absolutely can be, if you make some changes.  I know, you’ve already made changes, and sacrifices, when you gave up those gluten filled foods you loved.  But I…

Hair today…..


  Update: I received a very nice response from Veronica, who works with ABBA-the subject of this post. Here is her reply to this blog post: Hope you’re well!

Like a circle in a spiral….


  Since my husband and I have started eating healthier, I decided to invest in a spiralizer.  I have been wanting one for awhile, but now I have an excuse to use it. After reading some reviews, I decided on the Oxo good grips 3 blade model.  I liked the fact that it came with…

Southern Girl? Not quite…..


  A couple of weeks ago, I posted that I was going to make southern biscuits.  Well, I finally did last night, and um…well….they didn’t turn out as I hoped. It is interesting when you experiment with recipes-you never know what you’re going to get.   I certainly got surprised, and not in a good…

You are the salt of the earth…


  They say you are what you eat….if that is the case, then we should all be pillars of salt. Since my husband was diagnosed with heart disease, I have been much more aware of salt consumption. I have always had a love affair with the salt shaker, but, you might be surprised how much…

I’m the Taxman


    Going through my Facebook feed this morning, I came across an interesting post from beyondceliac.org: CELITAX: HELPING YOU TRACK YOUR GLUTEN-FREE FOOD PURCHASES Basically, there is a new phone app that can help you track your taxes on gluten free foods for tax refund purposes. To quote the article: A new app can…

A Whole New World….


In my last post, I wrote that my husband had been diagnosed with heart disease.  He came home from the hospital a few days ago, and since then, we have been struggling with old eating habits. We started by purging all the junk food in the house, for both him, and me.  In his case,…

There’ll be some changes made


A few days ago, our whole world changed.  My husband is being treated for coronary artery disease. This did not come on suddenly, but we didn’t realize this was the problem until a few days ago. So what does this mean?  It means we will both have to change our diet.  I will, of course, still…

23 and who?


A couple of months ago, I sent my DNA to 23andme to find out if I have a gene for celiac disease.  I had read online that they did do a test for the genome that causes it. It took over 10 weeks for my sample to be tested.  It was supposed to take 6-8….
