Yes, dear friends, I found out in June that I have Celiac's Disease and am gluten intolerant. All that Daring Baking and Tuesdays with Dorie was making me feel even more miserable than usual. Once I figured it out and started eating gluten free it made a world of difference. I feel 1000% percent better. I have energy and my moods are more level and I'm just... well, happy. I've been eating almost no carbs at all (for fear of cross contamination) and have had to buy all new clothes. (The Pants of Shame went to Goodwill about a month ago.)
So, this is why I've dropped off the face of the blog. I've been trying to get my new lifestyle into the groove and just haven't had the time or inclination to document and photograph everything I put in my mouth. In the beginning I was thinking about food ALL THE TIME and just didn't want to feel compelled to write about it too. I've found tons and tons of great resources and blogs from other people, so I'm grateful for that, but I'm not ready to jump in there also.
I may pop in and out here, but I'm still in my coocoon stage and taking baby steps in the learning process. I still follow your blogs, but not as regularly as I'd like. I am so proud of you for continuing onward!
