I am a work-at-home mom aspiring artist. I cook for my husband and four year old daughter. Over the last year I have had to cut out caffeine, chocolate, refined grains and sugar. So I have been focusing on healthy foods and I hope to lead a good example for my little one. A few months ago I found out that I have an intolerance to wheat and bovine dairy, so I am always on the look out for dairy free and wheat/gluten free recipes. (Update 2009 - It is no longer thought that I have issues with wheat. So I now use wheat flour in my cooking, but I try not to consume too much of it. I am however still lactose intollerant and so is my daughter.) Also I am currently dabbling with a semi-vegetarian diet and doing a bit of low carb. Though cooking has been a bit of a challenge with all the dietary restraints, I have been feeling great. So I plan to keep up with this. My family maintains an omni diet, but I don't mind it at all. The main focus on food for us is health and enjoyment. :)
