Now onto the topic of food. You guys, food is on my mind alot, and not just because I like to eat it. As you know (or maybe you don't know?), I'm really interested in holistic nutrition. As a matter of fact, I'm going to be taking a class on just that starting April 16th! I'm seriously like a giddy little girl, because I've been looking at the syllabus, and it's going to be a kick-butt class. Needless to say, I'm just really looking forward to learning more about how food effects us, because from what I know already, food has an effect on pretty much everything that goes on in our body--food is powerful and it can either be for you or against you. This is why I try my darndest to eat foods that are going to benefit me, and not make me feel weighed down and full of yuck.
I think I've mentioned this before, but I have a weird desire to take pictures of the food that I'm eating and share it with people. Part of the reason I started blogging again was just so that I could have an outlet to put all the things I'm passionate about out there. I hope you don't mind.
There's something I tried this week that I'm totally in love with: gluten-free, dairy free, 100% Paleo, rolls. I'm not someone who gets really sick when I eat gluten, but I do avoid it for various reasons. These are actually a cross between a biscuit and a roll. I feel like I should be sipping on some tea in England with a big, fancy hat on while I'm eating these.
Today I actually used the same dough to make pizza crust, and it turned out better than expected! If you're gluten free, dairy free, or just looking for a healthier alternative to the conventional dinner roll and/or pizza crust, then you should definitely try making these. The main ingrediants are tapioca flour, coconut flour, olive oil ( I used coconut oil), and an egg. Out of respect for the person who originated this recipe, I'm not going to post it here, but I will redirect you to her blog.
