All day it felt like Daddy and i were fighting without the actual argument part. It was sucky to say the least. He woke up to bags upon bags of food going in the trash. The cabinets bare and the fridge sparse. Every drop of sugar, gluten and dairy containing food out of the house. He felt like it came out of nowhere, despite us … Continue reading Yesterday was a day of grief
When Daddy and I were going through our early conversations about our compatibility I had red lights flashing and warning bells going off around our food habits. I told Him at the time and let Him know that I wouldn’t be able to live like that. I’m diabetic and have major food allergies that impact my overall health and how I feel on a daily … Continue reading Radical Self-Care & Food
I’m not quite sure what I ate Thursday that hit me so hard. It’s awful!!! Last night I had stomach cramps so bad I couldn’t move. Daddy was worried sick to see me hurt that bad. My legs are still so swollen they hurt! Accidental ingestion is the worst…. I’m still weeding out products that are safe and not again. I have my old standby’s … Continue reading I’ve been Glutened!!!
This recipe was given to me years ago by my friend’s father, Godrej. The family was Indian and he was a professional chef who planned menus for Indian restaurants here in California. This is the real deal. I’ve been making this curry for years and I’m often asked for the recipe… or a return invite for dinner. I hope you enjoy! The recipe is written … Continue reading Coconut Curry
Took me about a week, but I lived through another one. Certainly not my first, but I sure as Hell hope it’s my last!!! I can laugh a little about it now. The sleeping part just isn’t fun. The level of fatigue is staggering. Once that part is over, the fun part comes. Hold on for dear life and stay near a bathroom!!! Pottying every … Continue reading I survived the gluten detox!
I’ve started the process of detoxing off gluten once again. I slept until nearly 4pm today. My body is screaming at me to SLEEP and HYDRATE!!! Water is my bestie when I’m detoxing. To drink as much as I need to I found that adding a bit of lemon or other fruit to it breaks the monotony of gallons upon gallons of water. My body … Continue reading Gluten Free Baking & Other Stuff.

I have prided myself on losing 120 pounds and maintaining it for about 10 years now. I spent almost all of my life being grossly obese and having little to no body related self-esteem. I had an eating disorder that started at the tender age of 11 which spanned into my 40s. In the last year I’ve gained 10 pounds. I get it off and … Continue reading Battle of the gluten bulge
