newly married couple, Rebecca and DamianAh weddings. Boy do they derail your life! I'll bet you are expecting this post to be all about the wedding. Honestly, I am sooo ready to move on - it was great, just like a movie, absolutely loved it. It took over every waking moment of my life for months, and directly my habits and lifestyle. I survived, enjoyed, and treasured it. Now, I am ready to be married.So, to sum up, met my weight goals (juiced for the last two weeks; it's amazing how that works!), got everything built, my family got along well enough, and yep, we ended up married. Ate yummy gluten-free pasta at the wedding, but did have a bite of regular old cake. Went to Victoria in Canada, slept for a week, and came home. Well, I should say we slept and ATE for a week. All those good habits? Out The Door! I knew I'd splurge for a few days, but I have to admit it turned into two weeks. Juicing pre-weddingThat's what I really want to write about. I turned back to dairy, meat and wheat and indulged SO MUCH! I felt sluggish, tired, and yet oh so good. No big deal, until a few days turned into a week, then two weeks. I went back to feeling bloated, uncomfortable, and also so frustrated at myself for "ruining everything". It wasn't until my phone call with coach Ellenyesterday morning that I realized I was being over-dramatic. I hadn't ruined anything. I could still tap into all the good habits I'd learned. I could still do things that were positive for my health.So, she asked what I could do that day for health. I had the day off, so I could go for a much-needed hike in the woods. And I DID! While talking, I also realized I had an un-tapped resource in my mom who has planned a home-cooked meal every day of her adult life, and that she could help create a habit of meal-planning with a simple weekly call. I called and told her I wanted to do this with her, and she was supportive and delighted. It will be a stretch for her for do gluten and dairy free, but she's more than willing!on a hike to Salt Water State ParkSince then, instead of worrying about my next ten meals or the 'bad' thing I ate, I have simply been asking myself at each moment, what is the best thing I could do right now to support myself and stay healthy. It has taken the pressure off of me to be perfect now and forever, and only asks me to make the best decision I am equipped to make in the moment. Sometimes in the moment I will only be equipped to stop at one taco from Taco Bell, other times I will be equipped to hike ten miles and eat raw veggies. As long as I am kind to myself and do my best in the moment, I think I'll be okay.So, yes, I leapt off the gluten-free dairy free bandwagon and ate with wild abandon. But I know I don't want that lifestyle, and am back to nurturing myself. Thanks for being patient while I was away! THIS WEEK'S KEY TO SUCCESS: Focusing on the "one thing" I can do right now to best support my health.THIS WEEK'S PERSONAL CHALLENGE: Eat less Taco Bell! -Rebecca-

It has been way too long since I have posted and it's definitely time I try to catch up. We have been busy just like everyone else but it's time I share some gluten free meals that get us through the crazy busy times. People often think that gluten free cooking is time consuming and expensive but that doesn't have to be the case. Here are seven simple gluten free meals that are quick and don't require any special ingredients.Tacos - We also have corn tortilla shells on hand. Tacos are great for picky eaters - you can use chicken, beef, pork or veggies and everyone can customize their own toppings.Nachos - We like to cover a tray with tortilla chips and sprinkle chicken and cheese. If we don't have chicken we'll use black beans and corn. After the cheese is melted we add tomatoes, onions, lettuce, salsa and sour cream. It's a bonus if we have guacamole.Quesadilla - Are you noticing a theme? We almost always have tortillas, cheese, tomatoes, etc on hand. I love adding olives in my quesadilla. This is a great meatless option.Eggs & Hash browns - Typically we make scrambled eggs and add mushrooms, green peppers and onions. Serve with hash browns and fruit.Breakfast Burritos - Again, those tortilla shells come in handy. Cook some scrambled eggs (feel free too add some sausage) and add your favorite toppings. Serve with fruit.Chili - I rarely follow a recipe for chili. Keep your favorite ingredients on hand so you can make it in a pinch. We like to make a large batch and save the leftovers to make chili fries.Baked Potato - Bake your potatoes in the oven or microwave, I know some people wrap them in foil and cook them in a crock-pot. We often serve these with a medley of broccoli, cauliflower and carrots. Then add cheese, sour cream, butter or salsa. Everyone can customize it to their liking. I like to make an extra for lunch the next day.If you don't have the time or energy to "cook" a meal pick up a Rotisserie Chicken. Make sure to check the ingredients, I know the ones at Sam's Club and Cosco are gluten free. If we happen to be out we'll pick one up and serve it with salad or mashed potatoes and warm veggies. The leftovers are great for nachos, tacos, quesadillas or making chicken salad sandwiches for lunch the next day. I hope these ideas serve as a reminder that it doesn't have to be complicated to eat gluten free. Don't be afraid to keep things simple. I'd love to hear your quick go to meals.

Here are my toolsI've been reading Helene Dujardin's book Plate to Pixel about food photography. One of the phrases that jumped off the page was: "The only wrong way to do food photography, is not to do food photography". (Or something along those lines.)So, today, I've been 'doing food photography'. And these are the results.Can you guess what I baked?? (Recipe coming soon.)My father-in-law made this scoop. He's so cleverI love love love Lyle's golden syrup tins. They make good pencil potsHmm, not sure I've mastered the whole shutter speed thing. Getting there...Forget the lady of the lamp.
