This is me
offering truth & giggles
through running, yoga teacher certification, Reiki study and certification, wellness coaching courses, voice study, and experimentation with diet (due to an unintentional discovery of gluten issues nearly a decade ago). On this journey of self-discovery, I have given up gluten, committed to consuming organic foods as much as possible, partnered with CSA's, started home gardening, and have (mostly) eliminated processed sugar by shopping for whole foods and baking with fruits. I quit my corporate job of nearly 11 years, got engaged, relocated my life, and have been working on all things artistic (including home renovations) since arriving in my new hometown, and in our new (older) home.
I am a conservation advocate (reduce, reuse, recycle!), and rarely buy anything new. As an avid thrifter, estate sale junkie, and craigslist connoisseur, I would venture to guess more than 85% of my worldly goods are second-hand.
I have always loved baking, and want to share with you the simple recipes I create to replace my favorites from BGFL (Before Gluten Free Life). Also, I’m excited to help you re-create any recipe you loved before you gave up “regular baked goods”. Send me a message with a recipe you’d like me to create a gluten-free solution for here.
While my blogging adventure started as a way to hold myself accountable to a running practice, I realized the amount of joy that writing brings me is what keeps me coming back to the keyboard. On these pages you will find running adventures, exploration of food, healthy eating, and musings on life. I hope what you find here can bring a smile, a laugh, some enjoyment, or inspiration.
Please feel free to shoot me your question, comment, or even simply say hello!
