Diann is Cooking
I joined this site back in 2007 when it was Recipezaar. I cook 90% of my own food from scratch, and have lost 40 pounds so doing. I buy most of my summertime/fall veggies from farmers' markets, don't eat much gluten or grains -- but if I am dining with friends, I do eat what I am served, except for tree nuts, commercial baked goods from supermarkets or chains (I react badly to these), and I tend to avoid sweets. Yes, you can train yourself to appreciate sweets far less! I grow some of my own food, but this is limited due to lack of full sun. I also enjoy seafood (brain food!), eggs, and some pastured meats. I'm getting more into fermented foods. Sensitivities: All the tree nuts I actually LIKE. Sigh. Fiddlehead ferns. Liquid egg product. Most commercially baked pastries and donuts and cakes.
