I've mentioned it before, but my husband has huge gut issues. He appears to have Celiac's and almost certainly a corn allergy/intolerance, but no matter how careful we are with his food, he just keeps getting sicker. I mean, he's down to rice, peas, and eggs. It's that dire. And if he so much as … Continue reading All Meat Diet for My Husband?
I mentioned before that I had started a Keto Meal Plan from Wholesome Yum, and so far it's going well. It's really nice to not have to figure out what to cook! Here's the newest update. I'm still finding that her plan has far more food than I need in it, so I chose fewer … Continue reading Week Three: Wholesome Yum Keto Meal Plan
My husband has gut issues, and is very limited in what he can eat, so when we go somewhere to eat, we need to provide something for him that's safe. We'll be going to the family Thanksgiving thrown by his side of the family, which means... I need to make food. I'll not be Keto … Continue reading Thanksgiving Prep for My Husband
Last week I mentioned that I had started a Keto Meal Plan from Wholesome Yum, and I started out strong but immediately discovered a big problem. I hadn't understood that you just made SOME of the week's food, not all. So I bought the entire grocery list and discovered Monday night, when I cooked the … Continue reading First Week: Wholesome Yum Meal Plan
Every Friday, one of our local bars has a fish fry, including grilled fish which is my favorite, and sometimes I really, really want to go. But I'm cheap. The meal is expensive, and I figure if I can afford to eat out I should tip well. (Often, I tip well because the people around … Continue reading I Want Fish, But I’m a Miser
Our church's Chili Cook Off was this Sunday, and I participated just like usual. It's for some Mission Trip or another. I'm an awful person because I don't pay any attention and just want to support the church. It's ten dollars to compete, and I always compete. Not because I'll ever win, but because that's … Continue reading Chili Cook Off!
Every year our church has a cookie sale to raise money for utility expenses. I never buy any (food allergies), but I always make gluten free cookies to sell. This year, I went one step further and went as corn free as I could manage. I took my grandmother's sugar cookie recipe and used Better … Continue reading Baking for Our Church’s Cookie Sale
You may remember that I posted a Keto tortilla recipe that was working great for me. Well, who would have known that it could get EVEN BETTER if I mixed the batter longer? Not a cursory mix like I was before, but really fluffing it like I would scrambled eggs. Compare: This is the sad … Continue reading Keto: Tortilla Revisited
I'm on a Ketogenic Diet, and it's going wonderfully. I'm a lot more energetic, and I'm down 20 lbs with no effort at all other than cooking which I do anyway with our food allergies/intolerances. Best of all, I'm never hungry! It's ridiculous. I set a timer to remember to eat. The biggest thing I've … Continue reading Keto: Tortilla
