I’ve been envious of all of the fun that GF bloggers get to have…recipe exchanges and the like. So I’ve developed a blog so I can “play”, too. I have many food restrictions: no gluten, dairy, eggs, soy, corn, sesame, grapes, fermented foods, yeast or citrus, shellfish, pork, and I also do the low glycemic thing. Did I miss any of them? You get the general idea. But that doesn’t mean that food is boring in our house! I’m always trying new things, some work (some don’t!) and learning along the way. And almost all I make is using whole food ingredients, and healthy.

I love recipes using 101 different spices and herbs and all sorts of new exotic tastes and textures. But I also totally appreciate the simple dishes that I can throw together that are delicious, too.

I’m a nutritionist and dietitian by profession, and it’s a fabulous coincidence that food has been a huge chunk of my own healing journey. I’ve been reading GF blogs for quite sometime and enjoy what other people are cooking and baking, and love to get the ideas of new thing to try. It finally occurred to me that if I get all excited to find a GFCFEFSF-low sugar-no corn treat on someone’s site, that maybe there were others like me who would appreciate my creations. So…enjoy, and let me know your thoughts.

About Cheryl Harris

Life played a funny trick on me. I've studied nutrition for years, and much to my surprise, found out that I could manage many of my health issues via diet. I've been GF for years, and I've got a bunch of allergies and sensitivities. But it definitely doesn't keep me from cooking, baking and enjoying my food. Thanks for stopping by.

    Hi Cheryl,
    It’s nice to see that I’m not the only one with a whole bunch of food restrictions plus I still haven’t found out if i may still be eating things that is at the source of my continuous bloating. I constantly remind myself that it’s not so bad, that at least my doctor has told that I am still healthy apart from my day to day discomforts. That allows me to continue this tough journey and try new recipes similar to yours. My intolerances seem to be: sugar, lactose and casin, gluten, soy (not sure yet), corn, citrus (lemons and limes seem to be ok.) and coffee and chocolate, of course. It’s tough and I sometimes wish I wasn’t vegetarian cause that complicates things a lot when I go to a restaurant but I really don’t want to resort to eating meat. I’ve been seeing the same RNCP for the past 6 years now and she’s helped me a lot but has moved. The only thing I’m lacking is new ideas. How long did it take you to pinpoint your intolerances and have your symptoms really disappeared for the most part? I’ve made a lot of progress as now the bloating is pretty much the main issue. I just hope one day my cooking efforts and food restrictions will be really have been worthwhile. I miss oh so much the sandwhiches and pizzas!! I’m still and have always been quite athletic and positive and never thought I would have to deal with a distended stomach no matter how many abs I do! Oh well, there could be worst things… ; )
