Figuring out Free…
My name is Alea and I’m a RealFoodivore. Um… that means I eat as much as I can from scratch, without preservatives, unprocessed, in season, and local whenever possible. Oh, and in my case, also gluten, dairy, egg, soy, corn, refined white sugar, xanthan/guar, garlic, tomato, sulfite, nitrate free… (and the list goes on and on and on… ;) ). I figure if I’m going to live till I am 100, I better cut out the stuff that’s been making me really sick. And get cooking.
Honestly, all I want is to be healthy when I’m old. I want to be that crazy old lady in a bright pink feather boa who walks down the street in garish electric blue stilettos and neon orange nails, just cause I can. At 93 years old. Thats the goal.
Soooo… getting to that level of healthy eccentricity means I’m going to have to do some shopping ;) and some healthy eating. Shopping? Feather boas? No problem. Eating—err. A little more difficult.
I have a long list of foods I’m intolerant to, beyond the ones listed here. But it doesn’t matter. I’m determined to eat real food, from scratch, that plays nicey-nice with my guts and gizzards. So here I am. Trying to figure out what it means to live free.
This blog is to record those ‘messings around’ in the kitchen, and a place to make allergen-free versions of the beautiful things I remember eating as a kid at my Nonna’s house with our weekly visits.
Some people drink, I cook. At least I am productive ;)
This blog is free of:
Gluten, Dairy, Soy, Corn, Eggs, Refined White Sugar, Xanthan/guar gum, garlic, Peanuts, Sulfites, Nitrates, Shellfish. (There are a heck of a lot more things I can’t eat but this list is long enough as it is!)

So- take a look around. Come join the happy madness.
And please. Take very good care of your gut. :)
