Weekly Meal Plan: Fall Foods and Anticipation!

September 21st, 2008 · 10 Comments

This morning it hit me that I have one more week of work before my life transitions full-time into my long-time dream of writing for a living.  I called my husband into the living room, grabbed his hands, and spun around with him like we were five years old and on a playground. I’m so […]

Busy busy busy–and here’s what I’m eating

June 2nd, 2008 · 8 Comments

Whoo, I have been busy lately. I always make a meal plan, but lately, I don’t always take the time to post it.  In any case, here’s this week’s, starting with this past Saturday.  As always, it’s gluten-free, dairy-(casein-)free, soy-free, and egg-free. (It’s funny that it’s become such a habit for me at this point […]

Healthy Meal Plan for a Busy Spring Week

May 18th, 2008 · 6 Comments

Dan and I start our thrice-weekly work-out class this week. In practice, going to the class shouldn’t be terribly different than coming home and going for a run was prior to now. However, I’m planning to succeed by assuming that it will put me home later than I expect—-and planning meals as if I will […]

A True Spring Dinner

May 15th, 2008 · 6 Comments

I worked last Saturday morning and thus sent my husband to the neighborhood farmer’s market (which is only held on Saturday mornings) to pick fresh, local vegetables for our week’s meals. He came home with several veggies, including a bag of lovely fresh, shelled peas. He had picked the peas rather at random, but peas […]

All-Dairy-Free Week 2: My Meal Plan

May 5th, 2008 · 4 Comments

My dairy-free month is going well so far—one might even say too well.  As in, it appears the sheep and goat dairy was contributing some, um, lower-GI upset to my life.  Will I be able to add a bit of it back in later—perhaps just some goat yogurt (since I can’t have soy, after all)? […]

Fairly Quick & Healthy Meals for a Busy Week

April 14th, 2008 · 5 Comments

I successfully kept myself busy while my husband was gone (some might say overly busy), he’s come home from Europe safely, and he brought me gluten-free pasta from Italy! I hear it’s going to be fabulous, so I’m really excited about it.  Nonetheless, I’m holding off on using any this week because I’d already gotten […]

Allergen-Free Fruity Wild Rice Salad

April 4th, 2008 · 6 Comments

Shauna at Gluten-Free Girl recently requested gluten-free recipes that include wild rice. I adore the nutty texture and satisfying flavor of wild rice, and I immediately thought of this recipe–one of my first allergen-free, intolerance-free creations I made after I began cooking gluten-free, casein-free, soy-free, and egg-free. Then I thought, I should share it with […]

Baking Recipe Success! (Gluten-Free, Egg-Free, Cow-Dairy-Free Scones)

April 1st, 2008 · 16 Comments

Though initially it was overwhelming, I’ve tried to pay attention to what gluten-free flours bloggers and magazine writers are using and why they’re choosing to use those. Until now, I had not really felt comfortable experimenting much with gluten-free baking (beyond pre-made mixes) because when you cut out gluten, cow dairy, eggs, and soy, a […]

Healthy Meal Plan for an Early Spring Week

March 29th, 2008 · 8 Comments

Whew. I’m back. At some point lately, I started panicking a bit about what I’m doing with my body and my life—about whether I’ve actually learned any of what I think I have learned, and whether much of it is true.  Outwardly and in my routine, nothing major changed lately.  I’m now 15 pounds from […]
