Sugar Free Sunday – April 24, 2011
Welcome to one of the sweetest weekly virtual potluck get-together ever! Yes indeed — it is Sugar Free Sunday! We host it every Sunday to exchange incredible sugar free recipes. Inspiration? You bet!
This Sunday is a very special Sunday for us. Flip Cookbook turned one on Friday! Yay to Raj and me!
I find myself getting nostalgic as I write this post. It brings back memories, what we have been through and accomplished in this last year. For Raj it was a digestive disorder that she had been suffering from for a few years, and for me, first it was being dairy-free for my son who was born with a dairy allergy and now it is chronic back pain… I am happy to report that Raj has been symptom free for a year and is now gluten free and sugar free… I’m back on dairy, getting a control on my back (wooohooo! :)) and I am making healthier food choices. When I first had to go dairy-free it was very hard. There weren’t too many resources, plus I used to buy a lot of semi-processed/processed foods! As I was forced to read more and know more about what I was putting in my body, it was fascinating to see what simple diet changes could do. Plus when you have a friend like Raj, who can physically hit me with a bat on my head to drill a point home (no she wouldn’t, she is a total sweetheart :)), it helped me change my food habits… She initially started Flip Cookbook and when I saw that “Cooking healthy isn’t hard… its yummy! way yummier than what it is thought out to be!”, I was a convert and I joined her. I now love experimenting with different foods, and even though I am not gluten free or vegan, I like thinking about recipes as a puzzle, how I can make them yummy and suitable for different diets without sacrificing on the taste! Going to the grocery store is now fun, not a drudgery!
So, here’s wishing Flip Cookbook a very happy First Birthday… Bring on your gorgeous sugar free recipes to the party!
