Okay, so apparently I suck at blogging! LOL. Oh well. I am going to be better. We have been working on going gluten free. My pledge is to do dairy free/gluten free for six months and see how I feel. I've been getting my oldest daughter involved. Sunday night we made sushi! It was so much fun. We made sushi rice (with vinegar, sugar, and salt) and added wasabi, avocados, carrots, and cucumbers and wrapped it all with nori rolls! We took pictures of our first adventure in sushi! We served it with miso soup. My son and younger daughter now want to make sushi with me. Tonight we are going to make summer rolls and a buckwheat soba noodle dish. I would really like to get more raw foods in our diet. It's so healthy, but it is so easy to fall into the junk food rut. Hopefully I can use this blog to help me! I discovered the magazine "Living Without." It had some great information in it. I'm reading the book Going Against The Grain by Melissa Diane Smith. It has some good information in it. She subscribes to the humans used to eat tons of meat theory which I think is wrong, and she tends to jump to some conclusions, but overall the book is a good read with lots of great information. I am going to send it on to my mother when I get finished reading it.
