About Soup

I woke up yesterday to a chilly, damp and rainy day.  It called for soup.

The process of making soup is magical to me.  I take all these disparate ingredients and mix them together into a watery mess.  I add heat and come back hours later to find that the watery mess has turned into […]

Saying Yes

I wanted to reply to a comment left on my Facebook in response to yesterday’s blog post, but I don’t know how to do that without sounding over-the-top preachy.   So, suffice it to say that my husband and I do not have an extravagant income, nor do we have exorbitant food bills.  However, we make […]

Poisoned

I wanted to write a post about all the fun the I had this weekend, but instead I need to write about something much more serious.

I got poisoned this weekend.  I’m sure it wasn’t intentional on the part of the poisoner, nor was it intentional on my part, but it happened all the same.  […]

Detox, Detox, Detox

oh…how difficult you are.

I saw the nutritionist yesterday.  She’s a holistic nutritionist, believing as I do, that a body out of balance manifests in disease.  And boy, is it ever time to put my money where my mouth is.  I don’t want anybody to get alarmed, though.  I’m working closely with my MD (who […]

Back on The Bike

Yeah, I’m writing about the bike again. I have a feeling it’s going to happen a lot.

You might have already figured out that I love riding. I’ve already explained why.

Today, I had a break between clients. I was in a lousy mood because I have an appointment with my […]

There’s good news and bad news

I just got a call from my doctor.

The good news is that I don’t have Celiac Disease.  Of course, as she pointed out, that doesn’t mean I can eat wheat without experiencing joint and muscle pain as a result.  We only know that I’m not flattening out the intestinal cilia when I do.  I […]

Two steps forward, one step back…

I know the detox process is just that, a process.  And yet, when I have a day that is as stellar as yesterday, waking up this morning and finding myself back in the process is somewhat….um….disappointing.

I knew there was going to be trouble last night.  I roamed far and wide yesterday, stopping here, stopping […]

What A Difference A Day Makes!

Woweee!!!  I woke up this morning at 8:30 and I was wide awake.

The majority of the brain frogs left during the night, and taken with them most of the pain.  Now, I’m not going completely off pain meds today, but I can see a future.  Maybe that light at the end of the tunnel […]

Weekend Wind-down

Gluten-free day 4.  So far, no light at the end of the tunnel that isn’t an oncoming freight train.

I think the worst part of the detox is that it feels like things are getting worse instead of better.  More pain, more fatigue as my body tries to rid itself of what it perceives as […]

Bread of Affliction

I was at a Passover Seder the other night.  Particularly meaningful was when the matzah was lifted up and the words uttered, “This is the bread of affliction….”  More true for me than for anyone else at the table.  I’m still waiting for the results of the celiac test, but my own personal test for […]
