Gluten Free Food Allergy Fest

I’ve been attending this gluten free food sampling Mecca since it started in Indy. In fact, when it started, it was not owned by Gluten free & more magazine. It was a local creation. After the initiation years and public build-up, the magazine purchased the show and took over. However, things have changed. While I […]

Gluten free condiments

One of the things people ask me the most about eating is, “is there really gluten in condiments?” Yes, sadly, there is. More often than not, wheat is used as a filler, binder and (I suppose) just for good measure. I also see a lot of barley malt, which is made from barley and therefore […]

It’s literally pre made!

Sweet potato chickenĀ 

I love sweet potatoes! I also love that they are allowed on a healthy, get fit menu. They can be used in so many ways and are abundant with natural sweetness. In this recipe I tried something new, with what I had on hand and it turned out fabulous!

Skinny fit… day 1

I’m on a 14 day journey to try out Skinny Fit Detox Tea.  I’ve been wanting to do a cleanse and I liked the wholesome ingredients and lack of allergens and laxatives in this one.  Upon opening the bag I was overwhelmed by the fresh berry smell and pleased to see mesh bags. The taste […]

Bubbles. Bubbles. Pop, please.

Normally, bubbles are fun, relaxing and even clean! However, spewing out of the dishwasher is not where I want to see them. This morning my daughter did the dishes for me and added dawn instead of cascade. Suddenly, my dishwasher sounded like it had an upset stomach. Upon asking for help from friends and googling, […]
