When I started this website, I set out to show the world that no matter how challenging the food restriction, there is a way to still enjoy what you have to eat. Heck, I don’t want you to enjoy your food; I want you to love your food! My second youngest daughter, at just 9 […]
Coconut Butter Cacao Nib Bars (Candida-Fighting, Paleo, Vegan, Sugar-Free, Whole30, ACD, GFCF and more!)
My long-time readers have seen me, and thereby this website, through a number of new eating adventures…new diagnosis and many trial and errors. As you know, I have celiac. Two of my 5 children show signs of gluten-intolerance but have not tested positive for celiac. Still, maintaining a gluten-free lifestyle has benefited them greatly. Even […]
If you have never enjoyed Elana Pantry’s Cherry Vanilla Power Bars, you are missing out. These Power Bars have just enough protein to tide you over and just enough sweet fruit to give you the energy you need to make it to the next meal. Elana’s bars got me through my first long-term out of […]
One day, my husband looked at me lovingly and said those five little words many of us never expect to hear: “Honey, I miss your salad.” Yes, my salad. I guess it had been a few weeks since I had made one of my nutrient-packed salads and my husband had a craving. Now if only […]

Imagine my excitement when Janet volunteered to join in on this year’s […]
Between the digestive issues my daughter has faced since she was a baby and my own celiac diagnosis, I have been somewhat obsessed with healing our guts for quite some time. For many years, I thought yogurt and liquid acidophilus were our only options. It has not been until recently that I have learned the […]

Months that begin on a Sunday or a Monday seem to mess with me. Here it is, July 8 and it’s already the second week of the month. What does that mean? That means tomorrow is Ingredient-Challenge Monday! And I almost forgot. Before I go on and tell you what ingredient we will be playing […]
The last few days have brought some significant changes to my home. After much discussion, my husband agreed to join me on my second Whole30, which began just a couple of days ago. Why is this such a big deal? My husband is a die-hard dairy-loving gluten-eating sugar-binging wonderful man. Don’t get me wrong…he is […]
