About the middle of last year, I decided to start a gluten free diet. At first, I didn’t want to talk about it. I have never been interested in promoting one limited viewpoint over another, especially on the broad subject of health and nutrition. However, due to specific health issues that I have experienced for as long as I can remember, I needed to change something. After a few months of a Gluten Free lifestyle, I started to notice large improvements in my personal health. It may not be something everyone needs to try, but after talking with friends and family I was surprised at the number of people who are likewise trying to go Gluten Free!
With the pervasive use of Wheat and Gluten today it can be a real challenge to find tasty replacement meals and foods, but my interest in food photography and food blogs has helped. There are a lot of creative and reasonable people working at a healthy lifestyle, the real trick though is to try and make it enjoyable. So, as a small attempt to do just that, I would like to introduce a fun new feature to our blog. Recipe Sunday.
We will be featuring Gluten Free recipes, healthy meals, and delicious seasonal meals (that are naturally gluten free of course).
We would love to hear from you! Leave us a comment with any recipes you would like us to post.

I skipped this step since I’m not a huge chocolate fan. Crazy, I know. 🙂
