Peel an Apple find a Cake

A healthy snack has eluded me for years. I thought it was a little bare-looking and ascetic when i first saw it on a blog somewhere, but because of my mysterious tummy-troubles I have been eating a lot of boiled eggs, boiled chicken and a lot of cooked apple sauce, and in an attempt to get some freshness and crispness and generally non-boiled-ness back into my diet I gave raw apple slices with cinnamon a try. It has been hitting the snacking spot for me again and again these days - peeling the apple first makes all the difference for a sore tummy and strangely I have been slathering the slices in more and more cinnamon without issue.

Sugar Doll

Seeing as it is that Averie has bestowed the Sugar Doll Award upon all of us - callling for ten random facts - I am taking that opportunity to blog a little without recipes.

Still Cookin'

I'm still cooking my food due to tummy-issues. This is quite weird for me - gluten free plus dairy free is one thing, but I really start feeling deprived when I can't have a big, daily dose of fresh fruit and vegetables. Well, so be it.

It doesn't mean no treats, though! So here are two new "tried" things to eat if you're grain, soy and dairy free.

A Sweet Prize

Eating for the last week to ten days has been a real challenge. I don't know why, but I'm hoping to find out. It leaves me with nothing positive to say about food and no new experiments to report - aside from the mayo, which is what I have been using to get steamed veggies and boiled chicken down the hatch. What better way to wait for better days than by entering a prize draw for a raw dessert book?

At from nelly...with love... there is an amazing prize draw. Nelly is giving away "Sweet Gratitude - a new world of raw desserts", which is definitely a book that I've seen mentioned many times around the blogosphere. It's no surprise that it looks like competition for this prize will be fierce! Just look at the picture Nelly has posted of one of the desserts that she has done herself. The deadline for entering is Friday July 23.

My Mayo

Mayonnaise has never featured in my meals - seriously, I don't remember ever eating it - but I remember the taste, so there must have been a dab of mayo on a tuna or an egg sandwich back there sometime. I never thought of it as anything I really like or dislike, it's just there, and I've never bought it.

Simple Yoghurt

Yoghurt is really good tummy-food, and if you love it, well, like me, you'll miss it when going dairy free because there's really nothing else like it - unless you can handle soy yoghurt, I guess. I found a simple way of making something delicious that I'll call yoghurt from now on. But I would like to just air a couple of thoughts first.
