A Woman Inspired

If you have never "attended" a conference by A Woman Inspired, I highly recommend it. This is an online conference that is a week long. There are many different speakers every day and it is such a blessing to hear these ladies and the topics they are speaking on. This conference is about having a creative and efficient life. I think all of us women probably desire for our lives to be more efficient and creative at times. Check the site out for the next conference and hop on board.

Tomorrow I am planning to post a recipe for gluten free Parmesan chicken..yummy!

Going G-Free

It's been quite a while since I lasted blogged. One reason is because it was the holiday season and I was quite busy. Another reason is because I have discovered that I have an intolerance to gluten. I was tested for Celiac Disease, but the results were normal. I have learned that even if you do not have the disease, you can still have a gluten intolerance. This really stinks for someone who loves to cook, bake and EAT! So for the last month I have cut gluten from my diet. Now..this doesn't mean that I have cut it completely..there are times when I want a bite of something that someone in my family is having, or when I am just stubborn and think I can handle the effects of that hot dog. I have had tummy troubles for over 10 years and I am really glad that I have discovered what probably is the cause. Fortunately, I don't have to take any medication...all I have to do is leave the gluten out of my diet. This can be hard, but I am learning to manage and adjust. It's amazing how much better I feel! I am reading Elisabeth Hasselbeck's The G-Free Diet. It has been a tremendous help! I will still bake and cook gluten containing meals (for my family) and hopefully get back to blogging. I will even try to include some yummy g-free recipes. I am still learning!! This is going to be a journey full of blessings, bellyaches ;-), and lessons learned!
