I'm challenging YOU!


Anne here with an important announcement.  As of January 1st, 2012 am taking the 4 week wheat free challenge.  Not 99.9% wheat free either.  100% no wheat.  That means I need to cook my meals and really watch what ingredients I'm using...  did you you know that gliadins (wheat proteins) are snuck into already processed foods just to make them more addictive?? 

Now, this isn't the biggest challenge that I could take on as I really have cut out most breads, bagels, crackers and other crunchy snacks.  But I do still eat them occasionally.   So for four weeks, no pizza crust (but I have a no starch crust recipe to try - uses cauliflower! genius!), no breads, no cookies.... NADA!

Who is in with me??

(insert cricket sound)

OK... so maybe these articles will help convince you that it's worth trying... (A HUGE thanks to my Guru Lisa for all her research!  So inspiring!!)

The first article is from a fellow blogger, The Defiant Dieter.  She blogs for a newspaper in Vancouver, I think.  She recently wrote a post about how eating more fat is making her thin.  What?   More fat = less fat??  Sounds too good to be true right?  If someone told you that you could slather your food with butter and not feel guilty about it, you'd do it in a heartbeat right?   Um, guess what?  You can.  You want to read more now, don't you??   Check her out at:

You can also follow her on Facebook.

But wait!  There's more!!  I recently posted a blog about my new fave coconut milk.  Even better than that is extra virgin coconut oil.  You need this stuff!  It's unbelievable.  A natural treat chuck full of all things good AND an appetite suppressor.  I swear it's true!  Check this out:

Your welcome!   I have a jar of coconut oil and it's almost gone already.  It's in a solid form and can be found in the health food section of the grocery store or at GNC.  It's great for your whole body, inside and out.  I used it in place of butter in my honey apple crisp and it was great!  I fry my eggs in it, put some in my hot coffee and tea, and just straight up on a spoon (try with a smidge of peanut butter).   Go get some.  NOW!

And if you need one more article to convince you that this is a doable challenge, just read:

I read articles like this and I'm all sorts of emotions.... angry and inspired to be a better and healthier me. 

One last article, just in case you need more, google "The Oiling of North America".  People!  Wake up!  Vegetable oils are killing you. 

So, grocery store list:  butter, and coconut oil!  Lock up the crackers. Put away the pasta.  NO MORE SODA.   Take the leftover cookies and chocolates and give them to people that you don't like.
