checking in!

hey guys! happy weekend to ya!

just wanted to let all my gluten-free angels know i haven't forgotten about you! i know i said i was working on some gf wraps/flatbreads/tortillas, and i still am! i promise!

i've been running around like a crazy person, making my little sister's birthday cake and getting ready for my little family vacation. i will be baking gf bread, wraps, and granola bars soon!

and for those of you who have been hanging with me for a while (XXOO!), you might have remembered me thinking about doing a gluten-free trail. wellllllll, i finally decided to just do it. after cutting out other things i know make me sick, i'm still questioning gluten, so we'll see! i start wednesday.

thanks for being patient with me. does anyone have any recipes i should try?


  1. Hi Rebekah. Don't have any recipes for you but looking forward to hearing about how your gluten trial/recipes turn out. <3 Enjoy vaca with your fam.

  2. Thanks for commanding me to lay off the knee. It kinda hit me like "hey, just do it. no big deal. it's obviously still a tad broken." So, 2 more weeks off and we'll see what happens!

    Aww your mum made my/my aunt's bread! So glad! Bread is amazing... even though you might not be able to have a slice, at least not after Wednesday! Hope your body can tell you how it feels once gluten is out of the picture. I've always wondered how hard it's be to tackle gluten free breads. Can't you just grind up oats or rice into a flour n go from there? Good luck! Can't wait to see them recipes :)

    God bless ya girl!

  3. I'm excited to see the recipes you come up with! Glad you've been keeping busy and I hope you are having a blast with these last weeks of summer! School in a couple weeks right?

  4. nicole - good to hear!!! you can use ground oats, but they will be much more coarse than normal "oat flour" you would buy. the tricky thing about gluten-free is that it takes more than one kind of flour (usually). check out that post i did a few days ago :)

    chuck - thanks man! i hope i get to see you today or tomorrow down there! and yes- school starts the 26th!

  5. Can't wait to read about your gluten-free adventure! Good luck! I wish I had some recipes for you

  6. You probably already know this but in case you don't, Jessy, from Richmond, writes a gluten free vegan blog called happy vegan face. She is very creative and posts lots of yummy looking eats.

  7. Good luck on the GF trial! I'm thinking about reducing my gluten intake a bit. I think I probably eat a ridiculous amount of it...

    You could try the PB frosting I just posted about, that's gluten free! :)

  8. Ahhh you've reminded me that I still need to make my sister a cake!

    Good luck with the gluten-free thing. I think I'm too stubborn to give up gluten. ;)

    Glad you're doing well!

  9. Here's a few blogs that are gluten-free (or have a lot of gluten free recipes):

  10. hey love! thanks for checking in. we'll be here when uve got the post ready. xoxo <3

  11. I just found your blog and I LOVE it! I love your post about how foods do all have calories and having to be mindful of that, but more importantly caring for ourselves. Also the effective workout tips. Everything looks great.

    Your posts relating to positive body image really remind me of something I'm starting on my blog in Sept. I would love if you could check it out. 30 days of self-love reflections -

  12. thank you guys! can't wait to try the new links :)
