I love to cook and I love good food. In 2007 I began a new approach to solving various health problems by giving up gluten, dairy, and soy. After having some success I found Elaine Gottschall's book, Ending the Vicious Cycle, and it changed my world. I followed the diet fanatically for 18 months and saw my health and energy come back after over 10 years of unexplained health issues. I am now where I can "cheat" every once in awhile and I do with some chocolate now and then. For the most part I describe my diet as grain and sugar free, using only honey as a sweetener. I still avoid gluten like the plague! This blog is my way of "paying it forward" to hopefully help someone as I had many people help me.
