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.

  1. Wow, that a fantastic listing, Cheryl! Love all those free online ones … most of which are new to me. ๐Ÿ™‚ Sometimes nothing beats “in-person” attention, but online is readily available any time, anywhere. Cool–thanks. Can’t wait to see Wendy’s post next! ๐Ÿ˜‰


  2. Indeed! I love meditating in a group, but it’s lovely to have resources at my finger tips at odd hours, too!
