SOOOO SOO excited because we launched our EAT CLEAN 7 DAY CHALLENGE yesterday <3
This is one of my favorite dinners so of course I had to start off the week with it. Everyone is raving about this one... Butternut squash, asparagus and sausage bake. SIMPLE, fast, and DELICIOUS!!!
It's no secret cookies are my vice! And for the last almost 11 years I have missed Milanos! Walmart has started carrying these and they don't say dairy free but they only have cocoa powder in them. So definitely Gluten Free and the jury is still out on Dairy Free. But really good and as close to the original as you can get.
Experimenting with some fun #glutenfree make-up and hair products. New absolute fave for lips...Bite Beauty! It's like having your fave lipstick and a nourishing lipgloss (cream would be more accurate) combined. On face: @gabrielcosmetic Moisturizing Liquid Foundation in Natural Beige & Dual Powder Foundation in Light Beige, @zuzuluxe Cream Concealer in C-7 (all certified gluten-free) The following are all free of gluten - Cheeks: @annabellecosmetics Biggy Bronzer Eyes: @physiciansformula Argan Wear Mascara in Ultra Black, @tartecosmetics Tartelette colours Best Friend, Power Player, Fashionista & Free Spirit on lids, Dreamer on eyebrows, @bitebeauty combined Amuse Bouche lipsticks Pepper & Honeycomb.

💁🏻By now many of you already know I am devoted to my little side gig of helping others fight disease and aging with food and fitness. 🙊Well, I've been working on a little secret project lately and I am so excited that the cat is finally out of the bag and I can officially let you all in on it!
💌Recently, the editors of @consumerhealthdigest reached out to me and asked me to become a member of their expert author panel! To say I was both humbled and excited was an understatement! I share the stage with many of the same experts in health, wellness and nutrition who have influenced me over the last 5 years, including @toscareno and Dr Nina Savelle-Rocklin!
🍽I have been asked by the editors to develop and share new and original recipes with their readers. Many of these recipes you can also find on the pages of my blog, "YouLikeNew.com," where I also write about my ongoing struggles with autoimmune disease.
Yep, 5 years ago I took on the job of Beachbody coach to please my nagging husband! I never expected that decision to enrich my life in so many ways, nor did I imagine it would open the door to other opportunities like this. Not only does this commitment to a healthy lifestyle help me manage chronic pain and illness, but it's rewarding to be able to share what I've learned and help others in the process. 💕
Living gluten-free can be hard but traveling gluten-free is a nightmare. The best trick? Bring my gluten-free travel cards with you on all your adventures. It explains what you can and cannot eat in 7 different languages. They are lifesavers! Download yours for free by clicking the link in bio.
Currently, I have been getting some dental work done. Today I had a very unsightly appliance put in my mouth. I was so embarrassed and frustrated by the appearance of it, the lisp it gave me, and soreness of my mouth...I seriously cried a good portion of the day. I came real close to even skimping out on our young adults bible study. "Why is it, such a temporary, small thing took over my world?" I asked myself. It's times like that the enemy sneaks in and try to steal your joy and focus. It's things like that, that make it easy to think it's okay to be so self absorbed. Things like that, make you miss the blessings God has set aside for you and opportunities to minister to others.
I live for leftovers!
Homemade, gluten free, salmon cakes. Nope, they are not healthy. There is all kinds of sugar in the rub I used to smoke the salmon, there is breadcrumbs and mayo involved in making the cakes...but I enjoyed the heck out of making and eating them!!
I get supper happy about gluten free successes, especially when it's something not usually made gluten free and when it's something I've always wanted to try but never have because I can't just order it somewhere!
Didn't even care about the indulgence, it was so worth it!!

Sometimes you just need Mac and cheese! An example of what I fondly refer to as a *multimeal*...all from scratch of course! Precook pasta and sauce, mix in pan with any other desired ingredients then top with extra cheese and bake 20 min. My no-cheese-please teen had plain pasta /shrug pick your battles! ;) Left pan is gluten pasta with veggie dogs and dairy free cheese sauce made with coconut milk and @daiyafoods This dish is vegan.
Middle pan is gluten free pasta with allergen friendly hot dogs from @schneiders and cheddar cheese sauce. This dish is gluten free.
Right pan is gluten pasta with allergen friendly hot dogs and cheddar cheese sauce.
All pans also have broccoli mixed in. Basic home made white sauce with dairy free ingredients including @earthbalance @daiyafoods @lovemysilk coconut milk and @bobsredmill rice flour
Did you know we have homemade desserts?
They are even gluten free and lactose free( if served without the ice cream.) These homemade puffs of happiness has a "doughnutty" texture on the outer layer with an oozy caramelised coconut filling on the inner side.
This dessert is going to leave you wanting more.
This is something you will not get anywhere.. ONLY AT MISTER P'S BURGER BAR.!!! Have you tried our Sweet Potato and Caramelised Coconut Fritters.? #GFLIFE GFFOODFPORN #LITTLEPUFFSOFHAPPYNESS#FOODPORN#YUM#LACTOSEFREEGOODNESS#CHEATDAYWITHOUTTHECHEATING
What do you think about the gluten free @lakefrontbrewery ales? 🔸They have a ginger beer, and a pilsner, both of which are brewed with gluten free ingredients. 🔸(Beer pours for both brews can be found in past Insta posts.)
