What I ate today: chocolate banana apple smoothie

today was one of those fibro glum slum days. I had a bad case of IBS and therefore my appetite was next to nothing. I was able to keep down a chocolate banana apple smoothie. Yes, you did read right a dash of cacao powder, banana, half of a McIntosh and half a cup of oatmeal all thrown into the Nutribullet and voila….I think I just created my first recipe on this blog..let me add that

customer interest survey: online ordering of gluten free baked goods

I started baking as a hobby. A simple past-time to improve my skills and create new and interesting recipes.  Once I had to go gluten free, this hobby became a passion to recreate all my favorite desserts without gluten.  This proved harder than I initially thought; since gluten free baking is more complex than simply replacing one flour with another. I would create new gluten and dairy free recipes and then let my friends be my taste testers. Before long, I began to get requests to sell my treats. Initially, I was apprehensive since my physical state often prevents me from baking as much as I would like. However, the response to my baking became so overwhelming that I had to take the next step. Recently, I began to receive interest from people in other states. I had never considered expanding my market outside of Nashville until now.

As a way to help me gauge interest in this endeavor, I created a Customer Interest Survey. The survey is quick and as of now solely for informational purposes!

Once I collect enough data, I will announce my decision. Click here to take the survey.

Welcome to the gluten free chef blog

Welcome to the gluten free chef blog. This blog will double as my bakery website as well as my personal food blog. I look forward to sharing my journey of gluten free eating in a gluten full world. I will post photos and recipes of my favorite dishes as well as explore other topics within the realm of cooking and baking. In my opinion, food is as important as breathing.  Everyday, I battle with the daily challenges associated with chronic fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and degenerative bone disease.  My overall wellness and symptom management are closely linked to the food (and non-food) that I put into my body. You can follow my Fibro journey at my other site: www.livingwithfibroblog.com

Thank you in advance for visiting my website.

All the best,
