I didn't mean to go AWOL for so long. I haven't meant to be social media missing for so many weeks and I am sorry.
Life has a wonderful way of throwing you curve balls. I guess tons of behind the scenes work and suffering from a terrible case of 'Mommy burn out' wasn't enough. I needed to throw in Christmas (with travel), a sinus infection and the diagnoses of now adding 'dairy free' to my life (and blog) banner.
This has left me reeling. I
can easily go without gluten and I have almost completely cut out
refined sugar from our diets (this goes to hell a bit over the holidays)
and I don't feel deprived or even frustrated. Going gluten free felt like a challenge. Inspiring me to learn more about food. But a diet of no dairy or wheat (or anything with gluten) doesn't feel like a challenge to me.......this feels......lame?....mean?....overwhelming?...all of the above.....and it sucks!!
I need to regroup, figure out what this means to my life, my writing, my blog, my kitchen, and my family. I need to read Paleo and SCD cookbooks.....I need to find a way to be inspired. I need to stop being mad. I need to get over this sinus infection. I need to do 10 loads of laundry. I need to figure out where all the new Christmas toys go when we clean up.
I promise to take you all on this journey (not the laundry doing part). I know I am not alone and there are others who have many many more food restrictions but right now I need mourn cheese and yogurt and figure out how to do this so please excuse my lack of recipes for a little while.
