Randomness

So....i said i was going to be on here more but haven't. Sigh. I just can't seem to stay on top of things anymore. One of my good friends here realized it and demanded (in a friendly albeit demanding way) that i need time to myself and i need to let go of my overprotecting nature so she took my son for the late morning/ early afternoon so i can get some things done. I took a shower while baby was sleeping then ate breakfast without anyone grabbing stuff off my plate, i had coffee while i checked my email and i folded AND put away ALL of the laundry. All in an hour. This usually takes me most of the day if it even gets done. My sitting room seems to be one big laundry room lately. It doesn't help that i've been selling a lot on ebay lately but it's all part of my big purge plan of 2010.

I've also been doing a lot of reading on gluten/dairy and autism. I am a strong believer that God gave us the cure for any disease, for that is how He is. He provides. It's a matter of finding the cure. Removing artificial colors and flavors has helped a lot but we have a long way to go. I've read that removing gluten and dairy helps (as in rids completely) 66% of kids with autism/ADHD/etc. That's enough for me to give it a go. But it's going to be a lot of work. My boy loves his peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and bread in general. The gluten free loaf at trader joes felt like a brick so i've been checking out gluten free books from the library and studying up. If anyone has a good gluten free bread recipe i'd love to have it.

And with that...the baby woke up. Time to go pick up big brother. I'll finish later...

I hope you read Heather's (shivaya naturals) blog because she has had several really great gluten free recipes there. I too have read that these strategies can be very effective...healing the gut is key and establishing body's ability to remove acids more effectively too.

I read her blog but haven't looked at the recipes. I'll definately be paying attention now and check them out. It's worth a shot.

I eat 100% gluten free/grain free/sugar free/dairy free. I get a lot of recipes from Elana's Pantry. http://www.elanaspantry.com/ She uses almond flour mostly. I make bread from her recipes that I think is delicious, especially if it is toasted.

I'm glad that you have a friend who "demanded" that you get some time to yourself!
