Mary has suffered from allergies for years. We've had tests done, even environmental assessments but nothing pinpoints the cause.

Our best approach so far has been avoiding molds, wheat and dairy. Unfortunately this has not eliminated the attacks which can be quite debilitating. We've added sugar to the list and so far Mary has been allergy free.

She does need to eat and is a wonderful cook so she has searched the internet for alternative recipes.

This week she discovered psyllium bread and tried it for the first time.

Here is the loaf, delicious and healthy coming out of our little oven. I was surprised at how tasty it is even though it has no flour or sugar.

Trying to stay healthy is a big challenge for many these days. We will continue to investigate and refine our diet to eliminate the allergy attacks. 

If you too avoid sugar and wheat send us your favourite recipes. We enjoy getting your recommendations.

Safe travels everyone and thanks for stopping by.
