One cannot think well, love well, or sleep well…
if one has not dined well. ~Woolf
As soon as I finished reading his message I was convinced that I needed answer his challenge. No, I am not a Registered Dietitian or Nutritionist or even a Professional Chef but I do share a love for food and a desire to help! I believe my immediate response was, “Game On Bro.” And in the month since his email, I have contacted dietitians, researched food allergies (specifically gluten & casein), read Gluten-free/Dairy-free cookbooks and spoken with real people who live with these intolerances every day. In fact, I would like to send a big “Thank You” to Tina, a gal that I stopped in a Des Moines, Iowa coffee shop because I heard her talking about living a gluten & dairy free lifestyle. Tina’s time, generosity and insights were so helpful!
Now, exactly one month later (9.20.10), I unveil to you an addition to Indulge called “Northcut Inspired.” Let it be known that my intention is not fortunate or fame. I am one of the lucky few who can say, “I love my job.” My purpose here is to help you indulge in the food you eat every day! As I attempt to answer this challenge, I promise you continued learning (on my part), one recipe post each week that is specific to your diet, and prompt responses to your requests . I will work with the same everyday recipes that I love and reinvent them to suit your needs. All of these recipes will be posted to my Indulge Homepage, tagged with “GFCF”, and then listed by category below.
Lucretius had it right when he said, “What is food to one man may be a fierce poison to others.” That doesn’t mean we can’t adapt our meals to savour the goodness available to us! If you are living with food restrictions, feel free to contact me with your comments, concerns, requests. I look forward to answering this challenge! Northcut, Thank You.
