Autism affects you too…not just the 1 in 42 boys diagnosed

Autism affects you too…not just the 1 in 42 boys diagnosed

When I saw this newly released statistic I cried….not only for the children but for the 1 in 42 mothers, who just like me five short years ago, received the news that their child has autism. I remember feeling like I was free falling into a deep black hole.  You can read more about that day here: Sammy and the day of his autism diagnosis.  I knew very little about autism at the time but I knew for sure our lives would never be the same. I now know that what seemed like at the time a devastating turn of events, took us on a journey that would forever change our lives and actually ended...

Got gas?

Got gas?

They say the average person passes gas 14 to 23 times a day. How they figured this out is a mystery to me and actually quite funny if you imagine how they actually conducted this study. During my gluten and dairy eating days, I could have probably tripled or quadrupled that figure.  After changing my diet, I can actually say that I very rarely passed gas…believe it or not.  When people ask me to share my most embarrassing moments, I first ask if they want the stories that are flatulence related or otherwise. Almost all my embarrassing moments involve passing gas at the most inopportune...

Restaurant Review | E&O Asian Kitchen | San Francisco

Restaurant Review | E&O Asian Kitchen | San Francisco

Recently, I was invited to try the gluten-free menu options at E&O Asian Kitchen in San Francisco, California. I tend to not think of Asian food when it comes to gluten-free dining so I was glad to be introduced to this restaurant. Right away I was very impressed even just upon entering. The interior design is amazing cloaked in warm inviting earth tones. My daughter, Ashlee, home from college, joined me for lunch. Presented with our gluten-free menus (I love it when a restaurant has a specific gluten-free menu), it was hard to choose there are so many GF options. We opted to begin with...

Gluten Free | Sweets for your Sweetie

Gluten Free | Sweets for your Sweetie

Holidays can be such a challenge for those following a restricted diet. Avoiding gluten, dairy and soy (present in most chocolate in the form of soy lecithin) is hard enough and now add color-dye and genetically modified organisms (GMO’s), such as high fructose corn syrup to the mix, and one can go into overdrive.  The holidays that are coated in red color dye are the most troublesome for us (Valentine’s day, Christmas). I am convinced after five years of observation that color dye is Sam’s number one behavior trigger. I joke during my presentations on “connecting the...
