I see you on the team and appreciate all you add to the conversation. I added you as a friend and would like to continue to share with you here on SP. My best to you and your personal journey here on SP!
I was really interested in your post about pantry staples. I hadn't thought of grinding my own spices. i use lots of them but tend to buy them ground. I'm going to look out for the whole spices locally. (Or on the web maybe? How do you buy yours?)
Also interested in the low carb idea, avoiding wheat but eating small amounts of other grains. I do the same and feel much better for it - it's been a few months now and it's going well. (Like you I'm not allergic.) Do you have any particular websites, SP groups,books etc that you'd recommend to support that way of eating? I always like to learn from people who have trodden the road before me, so to speak!
