Since giving up most sugars and grains a few months ago my life has changed in ways I could never have predicted. I shared a bit about this journey here. I would not have believed that I could have ever experienced such sustained high energy, a migraine free and medication free lifestyle and an honest enthusiasm for this approach to food. I feel so good that I literally want to stop people on the street and spread the word, but I am not that lady. That isn’t to say I haven’t had a few tantrums Read More →
If there’s one thing I’ve learned this year it’s that a good life is mostly made up of the little joys and celebrations sprinkled throughout every 24 hours.
