Hello! After quite a long time of a tricky tummy and low energy due to some health issues I feel like I am actually back to the blog. (Side note: if you have Celiac, be sure any medication you take is gluten free. Even after all these years I hadn’t checked up on the status of a generic variant of a med I take for my thyroid. Really, I had gotten lazy and stopped checking up on it. And, yep- it contained gluten. So… months later of low energy, severe anemia, inflammation in the small intestines and their lymph nodes, swollen joints and a bleeding ulcer later, we figured it out. Yay! Healing is taking a bit of time, and I’m still in the midst of it, but feeling SO much better and with better energy. Check your meds for gluten! That stuff is sneaky…) I have an appetite again and have enough energy to do life with my family, my job and still love up the blog. I can’t wait until my full energy is back. Watch out – LOL!
I hope you have still been following along with the Gluten Free Menu Swap each week while I’ve been off. It’s such a great resource for recipe and menu ideas for gluten free families that can help you get out of the same old meal rut. Heather of Celiac Family is hosting the Gluten Free Menu Swap this week. The theme is Clementines. We generally eat clementines straight up, freshly peeled and gobbled down. And Santa always tucks one in the toe of our Christmas stockings. How do you eat clementines?
