I wanted to share a recipe for some delicious biscuits my friend Greta brought around for me a few weeks ago. These cookies are not what you would expect! They taste and feel like a classic chocolate chip cookie but are made with unconventional ingredients.

But we were greeted by many other rambunctious children and their very desperate happy parents. And what better way […]
When I was an adolescent I discovered that I had a significant intolerance to gluten. My iron was extremely low (almost non-existent) and I was constantly exhausted and unable to stay awake during class. Fainting spells, heart palpitations, dizziness, breathlessness, and severe fatigue were all common place in my life at that point. I had no idea this was not normal. Oh, and gut pain. Constant gut pain. Fortunately I met a great alternative practitioner who nailed my […]
