Be Free – A Challenge ( & e-book!)

Did you know that Michelle from and I are writing an e-book, together with another friend?  We’ve been working hard, and finally the pieces are all starting to fall together.  We’ve titled it “Be Free – A 14-day Challenge of Food Discovery.   It’s the story of how the three of us have become FREE of a variety of health ailments, symptoms, and general misery just by being ‘food detectives‘ and finding out how specific foods affect each of us differently.   Our e-book is an easy to follow how-to guide for cutting gluten and dairy out of your diet.  (If you’d like to know more, and find out when it’s ready, you can go to and join our mailing list.)

Have you ever stopped to think that what you eat might be causing you to feel poorly?  Maybe you’re like I was… I didn’t realize how miserable I was until I started to feel well.  And I’m the first to admit, I thought the whole gluten thing was a fad.  I tried it for 14 days to prove everyone wrong.  But all the aches, pains, and other symptoms that I just thought were part of getting older were going away after just a week or so.  I was shocked. It definitely gave me something to think about!

We’ve been working hard the past month to get everything turned in for our e-book publisher  (hooray!)…. we’re hoping he’s able to get everything together and ready to release by August 1st!!  Michelle has a post up with some scrumptious photos of the yummy recipes that are included in the book. Over 80 of them, and they are delicious!!  (I swear you’d never know they were gluten free if we didn’t tell you! ) Go check them out, and start paying attention to how the foods you eat make you feel.

Something to think about…

I have recently discovered that sugar makes me REALLY tired. My whole life I’ve been eating breakfast cereal in the morning, then wondering why I can’t stay awake at 10am. Well duh!!! Breakfast cereal is now only eaten at bedtime – it’s my cure for insomnia! 🙂

How interesting… I haven’t discovered anything dramatic, but as an effort to lose weight, I started having a big breakfast, then a small lunch of fruit and yoghurt. I thought I’d be really tired and hungry in the afternoon – but actually I was LESS tired, and I think it’s because my lunch no longer had bread in it… Congratulations on your new book – sounds exciting!

Thanks for reminding us to be conscious of food choices, to respect the Temple of the Holy Spirit!
God bless,

Your book sounds amazing. I’ve been on a similar experience these past couple of months, but based on the books “Prevent & Reverse Heart Disease” by Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn and “The Engine 2 Diet” by Rip Esselstyn – they follow an oil-free, refined product-free vegan diet. Will look forward to hearing more about your book. 🙂

Congratulation on your discovery and putting it into e-book form.

Your new book sounds great – congratulations! I’ve noticed a difference in my health after eliminating all artificial sweeteners. I’m curious now to try gluten-free . . .
