    Weekly Menu Plan – May 30, 2010

    I can’t believe that it will be June in 2 days! This year has flown by. I can also tell it is close to June because my eyes itch so bad that I can barely see! I have bad allergies, but my eyes only seem to be affected about 4 weeks out of the year. [...]

    Lessons Learned – Celiac Awareness

    As I look back over the past 4+ years of being on the gluten-free diet, I realize how far I have come. I have grown so much. I have opened my mind to many new & exciting foods. I have grown stronger and wiser. No one can take that away from me. I am now [...]

    Recovery & Menu Plan – May 23, 2010

    This has been a long week. I have been recovering from my marathon last Sunday, which has been harder than I thought it would be. The hardest part? Staying away from the gym. My body craves exercise & I become a very cranky witch when I am forced to be idle. I saw the dr [...]

    Pizza Bagels – Gluten-Free

    I have a new love. No, I am not leaving my husband, as he is the love of my life, my new love is a bagel. Specifically, an Udi’s gluten-free bagel. I have had many a gluten-free bagel and not one of them lives up to Udi’s. Not only are they the best gluten-free bagel out there, but they are becoming more & more available across the US. The bagels can be ordered online or found in Whole Foods and other health food stores. Some lucky people are able to get them at Einstein’s, though I believe this is only happening in Colorado.

    What I like best about Udi’s bagels:

    Product Review: Yes! To Cookies

    I received some complimentary samples of Yes! To Cookies cookies a couple of months back. I don’t like to “sit on” reviews for this long, but I don’t like to write negative reviews either. I have been thinking about the “right” way to write the review and now believe that I am ready.

    Yes! To [...]

    Tart Cherry Juice

    When I was at the Expo in Atlanta this past March to pick up my half marathon bib and swag, I sampled some tart cherry juice. Of course the sales/demo person was just spewing the benefits of the juice faster than I could listen, but that was his job. The juice was very good and [...]

    Follow Up

    So, I sent a follow up email to the school district including the link that Michelle left in the comments. The link was to an article that showed that a school district not too far from ours had adopted some very healthy practices in their schools. Here is my original post. This is my follow [...]

    Marathon Recap

    As most of you are aware, I ran my first full marathon on Sunday, May 16, 2010 in Cleveland. I had run 2 half marathons previously, with my first one being in October 2009. I have had so many emotions from the time I crossed the starting line, I can’t even begin to go through [...]
