Ok guys, I have a job for you. Here goes:
A very close friend of mine has fibromyalgia. Recently, it has started getting really bad. Here whole left arm has been swollen for a week and it twitches and shakes. She can’t do anything with it! She can’t even type on the keyboard because her hand has swollen too large!
So, she had to start taking a prescription drug to help calm down the effects. But….the drug is supposed to cause the face to swell, and get puffy. Ugh…She is going on a wheat-free, sugar-free, dairy-free, chocolate-free diet. She called me last night to ask for suggestions and recipes. I gave her some ideas (she is a great baker by the way. She plans on going to culinary school to be a pastry chef, so she enjoys cooking), but I would really like to give her some more.
This is where you guys come in! I know a lot of you foodies out there have amazing recipe ideas that don’t include wheat, sugar, dairy, or chocolate. (I know what you must be thinking, Katie!) She is experienced with stevia, and I think she can eat small amounts of honey, though.
Please spread the word, and try to get as many people as you can to submit recipes for her! I know she would appreciate it greatly!
Simply send me a recipe to my email, or just tell me in the comment section. You can also send me links from your blog if you have one. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks so much guys! I can’t wait to hear what you come up with!
Before I go…
I hugged some fruit!!! (well, actually I devoured some…..)
Fruit is so great for you! My favoriite right now has to be mango-so fresh, so juicy! Fruits contain antioxidants like poly-phenolic flavonoids, vitamin-C, anthocyanins. These compounds protect us from oxidant stress, diseases and cancers, and help our body develop capacity to fight against these ailments by boosting our immunity level. They provide plenty of fiber and vitamins to help our body feel strong, and our mind happy!
Besides, they taste good, too! When is the last time you took a bite out of an apple and were surprised by how fresh it tasted? Or the last time you made some Magic Banana Ice Cream, and were fooled into thinking it was made out of milk and sugar?
So start eatin’ those fruits!!
Thought-provoking, mind-prodding question of the day:
What is your favorite fruit?
And don’t forget to find some sugar-free, wheat-free, dairy-free, chocolate-free recipes for my friend!!
