Hello and welcome to my blog! I am happy that you landed on this page and I hope that you will enjoy the recipes (lower-carb, grain-free, gluten-free) and benefit from the practical nutrition information you find on here.
I blog because I learning about food and nutrition and I enjoy the challenge of creating great recipes and the joy of sharing them with readers — who may be old friends, family, or people I have never met who live just about anywhere on earth! And one of those people is you! Hello, and welcome!
I am a former dietitian/nutritionist. For about 30 years, I was a faculty member teaching clinical dietetics at the University of Texas South Western Medical Center (Dallas) and the University of Oklahoma Health Science Center (Oklahoma City) and also an entrepreneur who did videos about nutrition and wrote a column for Shape magazine, the Dallas Times Herald, and the Dallas Morning News. I was also one of the co-authors of the recipes for the first edition (1989) of the American Heart Association Low-Fat, Low-Cholesterol Cookbook. (Well, that was way back when I used to think a low-fat, low-cholesterol diet was good for health! How my thinking has changed!)
About five years ago I started this blog, focusing first on foods that can help prevent cancer and then more broadly on lower-carb, grain-free, gluten-free, real food recipes to help achieve optimum health.
Again, thanks for visiting, and I hope you will be rewarded with recipes you will enjoy and tips about food and nutrition you can use to live a healthier life — wherever you may live on this little planet that we all share.
The gifts of nature are waiting for us! So let’s get started!
