We are finishing up our three month stay in Missoula, Montana this week. If you follow me on Instagram, you know how sad I am to leave this beautiful place. The weather, the people, the active lifestyle, and of course the gorgeous scenery has won us over big time. In case you’re ever in the […]

A reason to keep moving #fitness #exercise

Exercise used to be something that just happened for me. A side-effect of joining various sports teams and growing more competitive at each level. I didn’t have to think about going to the gym, I was just part of the team. And as a team, we practiced. We pushed each other. We worked our butts […]

Quick Pickled Carrots with Garlic and Dill #glutenfree

This week I bought the GIANT bag of carrots at Costco and brought them home only to remember that we didn’t bring our BlendTec to Montana. Hmm, what to do with all the carrots?

As a dietitian with celiac disease, May is one of my favorite months. Not only do we get to shine a light with Celiac Awareness Month, but we also get to share just how good gluten-free food can taste! One of the funniest things I hear from people is, “Oh I could never give up […]

The Mini Frittata #glutenfree

I love making frittatas. A little too much apparently, because my family seems to be tired of them. So I started making mini frittatas, just for me. I eat two slices and save two slices for the next day. Perfect! Just like regular frittatas, you can make this any way you like with whatever you […]

Why we keep a gluten-free kitchen for our daughters.

To say I have supportive parents would be an understatement. The older I get, the more thanks I give for the love, loyalty, and encouragement they show me every day.
