Online Lyme & Tick-borne Disease Summit – Free!

This is just a quick post to put the word out there in case you are interested in learning more about tick-borne diseases.

There is a free summit happening right now through August 23, called the Uprooting Lyme Tele-Think-Tank. I haven’t listened to any of the talks yet as I only just found out about it, but I’m very excited to listen to Dr. Richard Horowitz speak on Thursday August 20; he is the author of Why Can’t I Get Better, which is an amazing, highly acclaimed book about Lyme Disease and how he treats it. You can listen for free at the time of the event or I believe you can purchase recordings if you want to listen to them later.

A hiatus, a shift of focus… and finally a diagnosis!

Hello again!

I’ve been thinking about it for some time now, and have had a lot of encouragement to pick the blog up again, but the past couple years have been a roller coaster to say the least, and unfortunately blogging didn’t fit into the picture.

Gluten Free Rosemary Parmesan Crackers

Gluten Free Rosemary Parmesan Crackers

Blogging is definitely more of a winter sport for me; it’s hard to justify sitting in front of a computer when I could be reading in the park on a sunny day – so, sorry about the sparse posts this summer! Once cool weather hits again I will be more diligent about posting regularly. 🙂

I started making gluten free crackers when I wanted to have more quick gluten free snacks on hand. Continue reading

I’ve been intrigued by the idea of Green Smoothies recently; I like the idea of getting so much fruit and leafy greens into one drink, but was hesitant to try one (how could spinach in a smoothie possibly taste good?!) However, this post from The Veggie Nook convinced me to give them a go. I made this recipe for lunch today and it tasted amazing! Aside from the colour, I had no idea that there was any spinach lurking in my smoothie, and the cinnamon made it taste amazing. I’ll definitely be trying more green smoothie recipes, and encourage you to try making one yourself.

Happy weekend everyone! I hope you have been enjoying some good weather like I have here. Summer’s on the way, I can feel it!

I created this smoothie recipe quite a while ago actually but have been waiting for a while to post it. I made it first here, but because I wanted to tweak it until it was perfect I never posted it. Then I decided it was so good, I sent the recipe to my foodie penpals and wanted to make sure they got to make it first before I shared it on the blogosphere. I can say it was very well received. Cher gave it two thumbs up and you can read what she said here on my foodie penpals reveal post! I’m not sure what Megan thought but hopefully she enjoyed it too!

And without further ado, I give you the oatmeal raisin cookie green…
