What do you consider is the most perfect food for you? (It can be your favorite food to something extremely healthy.)

I am gluten intolerant and stopped eating sugar for health reasons. No carbs, no sugar, what’s perfect?  My favorite go to meal is a salad with strawberries and almonds in it topped with a piece of grilled salmon.

Are you focused on today or tomorrow?

Both. I’m always looking ahead, I wouldn’t say focused, but planning ahead in terms of appointments and if something special is coming up. As I am getting older I do find I am thinking more about the tomorrows- and the lack of any guarantee of them-especially since friends have died suddenly and have lost their tomorrows, bringing it to the forefront of my mind.

If you could interview one of your great-great-great grandparents, who would it be (if you know their name) and what would you ask?

My maternal great grandmother was a seamstress and pattern maker. We do not know who came before her, it was said she was an orphan, so I would be interested in meeting her to find out. She died at the age of 54 from undiagnosed and untreated diabetes.

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.

I appreciated being off from school and seeing the sunrise instead of missing it because I needed to rush to get ready.

A Photo A Week Challenge: Fresh Baked

I had always loved to bake, trying new recipes, enjoying making fancy cookies and cakes, but after being diagnosed with gluten intolerance 16 years ago, I lost my love for baking. Last year someone gave me a gluten free bread mix, so I decided to try it.  The result was good- the consistency a little less dense than bread with gluten, but close enough to make eating it feel like the “real thing” to me. bread1 (1)
