New Release: Avalon Revamped

Today is the official release day for my alter-ego’s new book: Avalon Revamped. This is the long-awaited sequel, of sorts, to the Amazon Gothic Romance bestseller Avalon Revisited, available from Riverdale Ave Books in either paperback or eBook. About Avalon Revamped: Arthur Tudor, a vampire for nearly four-hundred years, finds himself bored with life and…

Elimination Diet: Day 24

Day 24 with only 4 days to go on the 28-day Elimination Diet. Today, tomorrow, and Wednesday, I’m re-introducing dairy to see if there is a major reaction. Like I said last week, I pretty much have reactions to everything, no matter what. The one thing that has reduced considerably is the mood changes and…

Elimination Diet: Day 20

So. This is what I’ve learned so far from the elimination diet: I have an intolerance to food. All food. Every bit of it, and I haven’t even re-introduced dairy, wheat, gluten, or yeast, yet. Everything from plain quinoa to organic rice cakes to winter squash. Although some symptoms have lessened, most haven’t. None have…

Elimination Diet: Day 15 (Phase 3)

Truly, I had meant to blog more in the past two weeks, but as usual, life happened. Overall, I’m not terribly pleased with the results of the Elimination Diet so far. I’ve followed it perfectly, what little information there is on it. That was one of the disappointments: buying The Whole Food Nutrition Cookbook for…

Elimination Diet: Day 3 + Warming Autumn Recipe!

Day 3 of the Elimination Diet started off a bit rocky. After doing so well at the end of my two day green smoothie fast yesterday, I had a bit of a dark patch that lasted through this morning. Certainly a few occurrences triggered it, but a few kind people, including my husband, also helped…

Elimination Diet: Days 1 & 2

About two months ago, I started really looking into my diet and seeing what I could do to minimize some chronic health issues. This all was soon before I was leaving for England for six weeks, so it was mostly experimentation with some new recipes and tracking GI activity, mood swings, and energy levels. Through…

Sweet Potato & Quinoa Wraps

Talk about class stereotypes. I’m totally guilty of this one. I avoided Collard Greens for years because it brought up images of The Beverly Hillbillies drinking moonshine and cooking up some victuals with collard greens, fatback, and possum road kill. I wholeheartedly admit it. On my quasi-elimination diet, as I’m not doing it properly because…

Learning to Live + Yummy Recipe!

Over the past week, I’ve been reading about healthier diets pretty close to nonstop. I’ve been trying new recipes and creating some of my own, so I’d like to share those with my readers. The last few years have been extremely difficult. In summary, as I don’t want to bore you with my life story,…
