Today is the 4th Anniversary of starting my blog!
My family has certainly grown & changed since then & so has the blog. I originally started it to blog about the challenge of feeding my family with multiple food intolerances. More recently I have blogged not only about physically feeding my family but also about feeding their mind, heart & soul as well. As I almost have 2 adult children I am finding that I’m blogging less about them & more about me. While recipes are still important to me and I certainly have lots more I could share, I’m finding I’m blogging about other things more.
My son has outgrown his food intolerances to some extent. Though nose bleeds & headaches are still a sign of him having too much of the wrong foods. As he gets older he will need to make his own decisions as regards to food & health. My husband will be continuing to avoid certain foods for life. My diet has also changed but I still think some foods are affecting me. I’m still working out whether I’ll have the same test they’ve had or try a GAPS diet or similar. As I write this I’m feeling quite achy. I have had some dairy in the form of ice-cream & cream in the last few days & am wondering if that or too much of another food is the cause or if I’m fighting off/coming down with something. I do know that in the past I often gotten achy if I’ve gone away & not worried about what I’ve been eating. We certainly have learnt a lot about how food affects our bodies since being on this journey.
My top 5 viewed posts since the blog began (not counting the About page) have been:
- Walking My Way to Fitness (mainly because it was shared on a WordPress round-up post about this topic)
- Corn Thins Pizza
- Pasta with Leftover Roast Meat
- GF, DF, egg free Chocolate Cake (this is probably the recipe I would share most on facebook food groups, especially if someone is looking for an allergy friendly cake).
- Letting Go
As you can see 3 of my top 5 posts contain recipes but other topics also made the top 5.
As I was finishing off this post my daughter suddenly asked when dinner was, as she was going out in less than half an hour. Fortunately I had rice cooked & with some help was very quickly able to make fried rice, also using up some leftover meatballs.
My blog will probably continue to have a variety of posts on different issues.
Is there anything you would like me to blog about? I’d love to hear from you.
