The Quest for More Energy

Today Lindsay and I are going to talk about the seemingly endless quest for more energy, and Lindsay is going to create some recipes around this food.  After all, we could all use more energy right?

Gluten Free Meal Plan 4/13/2013

I’ve been getting over a nasty virus that turned into an infection and have been sleeping a LOT this weekend.  Sometimes, as a parent, getting enough rest is difficult,  so I’ve tried to keep things easy this week, rely on Jeremy to help me make some food tomorrow, and also try to keep things healthy […]

Gluten Free Meal Plan 3/1/2013

We had a busy week this week, and I can’t believe I’m already planning for next week’s meals.       Saturday Lunch: Leftovers from last week Dinner: Paella with mussels  Jeremy has been craving paella so I tried to work that into our menu, but it takes a while to cook… definitely a weekend […]

Caesar Vinaigrette

We had a Caesar salad for dinner tonight, with toasted garlic bread in place of croutons and some sauteed mushrooms on the side, just because I needed to use them up.  I make our Caesar vinaigrette and it’s egg and gluten free!  It does have anchovies in it, which real Caesar does, but don’t be […]
