We have now been in quarantine 9 weeks here in North Carolina. How are you doing? Have you learned anything new? Tried any new recipes? I've been busy at home and online.
I truly miss going to the Greensboro Farmers Curb Market. I miss my market family but most of all I miss talking with you and making new friends who happen to stop by my booth. Keeping my fingers cross that June will bring back community connections. In the meantime here is what I have been up to.
1) Still making sourdough bread. LOL, are you? I am so excited about this accomplishment. In the past I have tried making bread and failed miserably! The fact that I MADE sourdough bread with my own STARTER still has me giddy. So giddy that I attempted to make a fancy round loaf like the gluten full kind I have been watching. And you know what I did and it turned out gorgeous. I also gave that one to a new member of the gluten free family. This young woman, a teen, is still adjusting to this lifestyle. I hope she enjoys that loaf as much as my family and I do.
2) I recently tried Dr. Mark Hyman's new coffee recipe from his book Food Fix. It was tasty, although a bit grainy at the bottom. Not sure if that was the cocoa powder which I normally put in my coffee or the cashew butter. But check it out. It went really great with avocado sourdough toast.
3) This weekend I made a new batch of gluten free, vegan waffles!! The best yet. My husband was thrilled with this batch and it's a keeper. Check out the Healthy Maven for her recipe. I topped mine with coconut whip cream and fresh strawberries. I can't get enough of those strawberries. This year they are so TASTY!!!
4) I am working on my #dochange challenge from the Functional Nutrition Alliance. I soon will be revealing a Facebook group revolving around Rethinking Foods. Our relationship, or attachment to foods that are not good for our bodies. I still remember that day when we discovered my daughter couldn't have gluten, dairy, soy and yeast. I felt like a deer in the headlights. We are now on the other side of the mountain but man it was hard to rethink our food choices, meal plans and how to travel. I wouldn't change a thing in the world for this journey. Even though it has been really hard at times. If you are looking for support in rethinking your food choices. Please reach out. I would be happy to support you on your journey. I really understand that feeling.
