What I Ate Wednesday + GIVEAWAY!!!!

This past fall I experimented with a cleanse - which means I took dairy, gluten, coffee and sugars out of my diet.  For that time, I felt amazing.   Then I gradually added gluten and dairy back into my diet.  Sadly, my body revolted.   Coffee was making me sick.  Like really sick.  I have found that cold brew coffee and green tea are now my caffeine sources.  I'll take it!  I also found that gluten didn't really agree with my stomach.  When I splurge on that seriously amazing tasting whoopee pie, my body revolts.  Like it did last night.  It was bad.  So bad.  But I love bread!  


Gluten free breads in my area is kinda hard to come by.  You can buy UDI's at the grocery store, but that's really your only option.  Unless you are lucky and get to the local food coop we have downtown.  Which is somewhere I normally do not frequent, but I guess I have to now...because I have found the BEST gluten free bread ever there.  And I mean THE BEST!  So now that I found them, I'm on the quest to make sure I always have this delicious bread in my house.  I bet I can even feed it to my family and they won't have a clue that it's glutenless.  She is actually the Bread Lady Bakery.  



And her brioche burger rolls?  Soft.  Flavorful.  Delicious!  They do not "taste" glutenless at all.  And I can enjoy burgers with buns again!  Yippee!!!!   Now I need to find out where she sells those brioche rolls!  I need them in my life!

And now..... My first fundraising contest!  As you know, I'm running the NYCM this November with team Miles for Miracles with Boston Children's Hospital.    You can read about why I've chosen to run for Boston Children's Hospital here.

Which means, I am in fundraising mode!  My first fundraising contest is this Runner's Package! Red Fox Wireless earbuds, Trigger Pin, and RC5X Heart rate watch and strap.  Retail value $350.  


The Trigger Pin and Red Fox earbuds are new.  I used the Polar Watch a couple of times...but decided it wasn't for me.
