Category Food. Marvelous and frightening.

Pan dulce (NOT pasteles!), where have you been all my life?!

Since my cat’s recent decline, I’ve given up most all pretext of eating healthy. One might say I’ve used Tigre’s failing health as an excuse to ruin my own. Sugar, wheat, dairy- nothing has been off-limits. The past two nights I’ve eaten at buffets, and a few nights ago I even fell so low as […]

Gluten free pizza with homemade ricotta.

The crust is from a mix with yeast. Its not chewy (no gluten), more like biscuity, but not bad. Made a focaccia with same mix the other night which had a better texture, but this is ok. I wanted fat free ricotta and a woman at a local cheese shop said it was easy to […]

DAMN YOU, WHOLE FOODS!

Less than 24 hours after I committed myself to eating as non-inflammatory as possible, I walk into Whole Foods and see this: How could they be so inconsiderate? Don’t they care about my joint and tendon pain? Aren’t they supposed to be committed to a healthy lifestyle? Worse yet, they’ve used a friendly, loveable Muppet, […]

Food, Pain and old wasabi.

If you know me (if you’re reading this, I’m guessing you probably do), then you know I have a lot of issues with pain and food. For a few years now I’ve been trying to figure out what, if any, relationship exists between the two. So far it seems wheat causes me breakouts and stomach […]
