Sorry For No Posts in a while

I think the last time I blogged was several months ago......

Since then I have had a decent summer, a couple challenges along the way but generally good.

During this summer I have discovered that I need to eat gluten free. I have experimented with various gf baked goods, some have turned out ok. I also had an icky summer cold.

I have also decided to try and eat more mindfully. One of the big changes I am making is to eat less 'by the clock'. I have realized that becauses of my personality I tend to be very schedule oriented, which is good and bad. This means that I will cook food because it is time to cook food not necessarily when I am hungry, and eat dinner because it is x time regardless of whether or not I need it.

My cooking adventures have been seldom lately. I have been eating quite a few simple meals. GF baking is interesting and a new challenge. Unfortunately the results leave something to be lacking (damn gluten adding wonderful slightly chewy texture, curse you). Although today after one failed ovenfull of cookies, adding xanthan gum to the recipe saved the second tray, yummy. So good they are all gone, now I am practicing my mindfull eating and waiting for dinner/potentially not having it.

So long for now.
