I Love Food

It is no secret that the title of this post is true. I do love food - good food, fresh food, real food. I can't remember the last time I ate anything out of a box. OK, so maybe I ate some Newman-O's cookies this month, but hey, they are gluten free!

This year has been one of great growth - or shall I say a grand decline is the types of foods that enter my mouth. I have stayed away from wheat (bloat), salt (BLOAT) and dairy (skin). Wow - what a difference a little restraint makes.

I would have not survived this had it not been for a wonderful group of people known as Food Bloggers. Fat-Free Vegan Kitchen, Gluten-Free Girl, Kalyn's Kitchen and Karina's Kitchen to name a few of my favorites. I read these blogs daily and always find some irresistible recipe.

Here are a few of my favorites from this summer:

Vegan Blueberry Cobbler -From Karina's Kitchen
Nick's Chipotle Grilled Shrimp with Black Bean Salsa - From Kalyn's Kitchen (haven't made the Shrimp side but the black bean salsa is delicious)
Napa Cabbage Slaw Recipe with Carrots and Fennel Seed Dressing - From Kalyn's Kitchen (I have eaten the whole thing myself - so delicious)
Vegan Peach Ice Scream - a dairy free frozen dessert - From Karina's Kitchen

Enjoy - and let me (and them!) know if you love these recipes as much as I do.
