Road food is not kind to vegans…or really, to anyone. TC and I were eating a very unhealthy breakfast of fries (for me) and French toast (for him) somewhere in South Dakota and he said, “Ugh, I feel like I’m gonna have a heart attack after eating all this heavy food this trip.” Which led to a certain song being stuck in my head for the rest of the trip…

This is going to be one of those self-absorbed posts wherein I talk about what I did and not about what I’ve made. Week before last, TC’s mentor asked him to come to DC to work on his house, and TC insisted that I accompany him. We both worked, a lot. While I pulled days in the office with significant overtime, TC put his mentor’s house back together (not a small exaggeration there).
Before we left, we saw these two kitties in a dusty window on Main Street.
It’s Thursday, and it’s time for a roundup of wellness bits and bobs, readers.
This post has two geneses: as Fall rolls around to Northern Colorado (37 degrees yesterday, what?!), TC requested an apple pie, after I made Key Lime Pie a few weeks ago.
One of the two things I didn’t do before I left DC was to make VGF pie with my friend Andi. This is for you, Andi, since it’s unlikely I’ll be back in DC to bake pie with you anytime soon.
Being GF is not a diet. It’s a lifestyle. It’s sometimes not a choice (id est, coeliac, IBS, leaky gut, intolerances, allergies).
A recent NY Times article by Kim Severson pointed out how life as a GF diner is becoming somewhat easier.
I do and don’t understand why someone would become gluten-free just to try it. After initially losing weight due to losing an entire food substance from one’s diet, being GF (or being vegan, for that matter) is no guarantee of weight control/maintenance.
This dog is GF because he has food allergies.
From conversations with friends over the past few weeks, I gathered that it’s a privilege have had the training to be a researcher and public speaker. I can both find/make results and deliver them with flair. Turning the “critical lens” on myself and my world yields insights and possibilities for my next steps. During my second juice fast of 2014, the results of the critical lens’ scan seem particularly glaring.
But I will always be here
with the power skull secrets
of forgotten years
