To Be Honest

October 21st, 2009 · 13 Comments

For a couple of days, I’ve been spending a couple of minutes here and there searching on Flickr for a Creative Commons-licensed photo of someone barely keeping her head above water.  But I haven’t found any, so instead you get a self-portrait I took today that isn’t nearly as interesting, perhaps, but illustrates what I’ve […]

May 29th, 2009 · 10 Comments

If you’ve been missing my writing, I’ve got a rather large spread in the Summer 2009 Delight Gluten-Free magazine (a new gf mag) this month.  It’s a cover article called “Weight Loss Without Willpower” about some of the same topics I’ve covered here–and some I haven’t gotten to on here, as well.  It includes a […]

Everything & Nothing

April 29th, 2009 · 22 Comments

Well, I might as well get started writing something, since the longer I wait to write something, the more I feel I should be writing something powerful and significant, not just catching up. And that, dear readers, is a recipe for absolute writer’s block. So where’ve I been? Partly—working. Working has never precluded blog-writing before, […]

Thank You, Thieves

January 2nd, 2009 · 15 Comments

I’m trying to look on the bright side of the theft of my belongings that occurred as we moved.  The brown pair of dress shoes they stole had gotten a bit too big as my feet have shrunk from weight loss.  Now I get to replace them with a comfy, new pair that fits just […]

Peace Be With You (& Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free Nutella Waffles, Too)

November 29th, 2008 · 18 Comments

My family is . . . complicated.  My food restrictions, for those who aren’t used to dealing with them, are complicated.  My emotions around Thanksgiving are complicated, too.  Thanksgiving isn’t always the best time of the year for me.  Okay, honestly, it’s often one of the worst days, emotionally, and has been for a long […]

Creamy Tuna Salad With No Mayo, Eggs, Soy, or Dairy

November 5th, 2008 · 26 Comments

Quite frankly, I find this tuna salad addictive.  To avoid developing new food allergies, I generally rotate what I eat so that I don’t eat the same thing in more than one 24-hour period every four days or so.  But once I’ve made this tuna salad, I’m all in until it’s gone.  I had this […]
