4 Years On!

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:

  1. Walking My Way to Fitness (mainly because it was shared on a WordPress round-up post about this topic)
  2. Corn Thins Pizza
  3. Pasta with Leftover Roast Meat
  4. 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).
  5. 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.
