so... the task at hand is this... i am searching for the perfect birthday cake to make. gluten/dairy free.
wow... i have never made one before ... and this will be interesting.
for health reasons, karen and i are taking a 28-day gluten/dairy free challenge.
i will be the first to admit, i thought all of "those" people overs the years going gluten free were NOT what i ever wanted to be...
the thought of having to read the ingredients on everything, making endless concessions,
shopping in all the hippie places to find REAL FOOD... ok, i said it ...
i have been judgemental and i formally apologize.
so being tested on all levels for food allergies i am so aware of how wrong i have been eating for years.
it would take me all day to write about it but i will keep this brief.
for any of you out there who suffer from anything ...
look at what you put into your mouth first. it will change your life.
will i ever eat another oreo again? very doubtful.
if anyone would have asked me that 1 year ago i would have said yes.
will i eat my favorite brioche bread again? maybe. will i eat it regularly? never...
your awareness is so heightened. you only want to fuel your body with things that are good for it.
precious thought goes into shopping, preparing and eating but not alot of time - some of my meals that 5-10 minutes to prepare.
simple things that i took for granted before are now a treat to eat.
i found this amazing blog today and wanted to share with you... and would love to hear from
you on this... being new to this... it is a big change... but a change for the better!
here is the amazing cake i will be making this weekend... thanks to gluten goddess (click for recipe)
