The Weekly Menu Oct. 23, 2017

What’s On the Menu this week? Well we’re making a lot of pasta and meatballs this week, because I’ve had trouble with my teeth and I’m searching for soft foods that are easy to chew. I’ve got a temporary crown on one side and a missing molar on the other side, so eating has been a little difficult.  I should be getting the permanent crown...

MTHFR, Genetic Testing & What to Eat

MTHFR! Hi all!  Well as it turns out I have a few gene variants that would account for why I am so sensitive to chemicals, why I have been driven to eat so clean, and why changing so many things over the years has helped my health improve (filtered water, no chemical cleaners, concrete floors, using glass instead of plastic, and all the food stuff…)....

Glyphosate & The Weekly Menu Sept. 11, 2017

Let’s Talk About Glyphosate This week I want to talk a little more about glyphosate (the active ingredient in Monsanto’s weed killer Round-Up) and GMOs. Glyphosate is designed to kill weeds and normally sprayed on genetically modified  organisms (GMOs) who are modified to be resistant to it.  In this case plants like corn, soy, and beet sugar. Glyphosate targets and blocks an essential pathway in...

The Weekly Menu Jan 30, 2017

Well it’s time for the weekly menu Jan 30 – Feb 5.  I need a lot of comfort food this week. Of course, it is all gluten free, mostly non-GMO and organic… It has been tougher than usual for me to find gratitude these days with the world feeling like it is imploding.  But I will say that I’m grateful for people standing up for...

Thanksgiving Weekly Menu 2016 | Gluten-Free

Hi all!  How is it already time for Thanksgiving again?  Wow!   We haven’t cooked a turkey the last few years but I’m actually looking forward to doing it again this year.   One of the things my mom taught me before she died was how to cook an entire Thanksgiving feast.  We do it a little different now because of my dietary restrictions and...

Hi everyone! Doesn’t August always feel like the longest month ever? Well it’s time for the gluten-free weekly menu Aug 22 edition. This week the recipes are pretty easy and there will be lots of leftovers that make great lunches.   Or they are great for freezing.  I will be trying a new recipe as well. For Meatless Monday, we are making up a batch of...

The Weekly Menu Aug 8, 2016

Ugh, August.  It’s too hot. But one of the fun things about this time of year is that Hatch Festival is here again.  It is such a great way to change up those staple recipes.  So we’re going #Hatch on everything the next two weeks! And we are slowly creeping back into football season again.  So excited about watching the Horns play this year.  Always start off...

The Weekly Menu May 16, 2016

Hi everyone! It’s time for the weekly menu May 16!  Hope you had a great week. Last week was super positive for me having earned an ‘A’ in both my Intro to Bioinformatics & Coding classes at JHU. Yay! Part of the challenge has been eating really clean to keep my gut bacteria as happy as possible, exercising to keep stress down, and surrounding myself...

The Weekly Menu April 11, 2016

It’s time for the weekly menu plan April 11 edition! And we will get to that as always. But you might be wondering why I’ve been talking about the microbiome so much lately and trying to eat mindfully to encourage the growth of good bacteria in the gut. So what is the microbiome? This is a pretty new field of research and it is exciting...
