Places I ate in Denver

I went to Denver for a long weekend over Halloween and since I do love food, I ate at a few different places. Here is a break down of where I ate, what I ate, and how I felt about it.


Thump Coffee РThis was in walking distance of the airbnb we were staying at. The latte was nice, but the granola and yogurt with fruit preserves was amazing! I ate more then I could because it was so good. Cute little coffee shop with long tables for sharing. Free refills on the drip coffee. Continue Reading


Eating Gluten Without Thinking

Not two long ago I finished a 30 Days Gluten Free challenge that I set for myself. I managed to force myself into thinking about every tiny thing I ate. And I made it 30 days and I felt great. Three days after making it 30 days gluten free, I ate gluten. I had a bagel. My breakfast options where slim, pretty much eat a bagel/muffin/sandwich or eat nothing at all and hope there is food at the place you are going to.

So I ate the bagel.

Then I went back to not eating gluten and being careful with what I was consuming. Until Friday night when I was on my way to a cottage and so very hungry that I would eat whatever was cooked for me, which turned out to be turkey burgers (with the bun) made with bread crumbs. The next day we had pizza pasta salad, I had my own with gluten free pasta, but then I took some of the pumpernickel¬†sandwich. On Sunday I had 1 and a half slices of pizza, gluten pizza, because again I was so very hungry and didn’t want to wait for them to make me a gluten free pizza. Continue Reading

What I ate in Vegas!

Having a gluten sensitivity always makes me worry about my eating habits when I go on trips or visit new restaurants, and Las Vegas was both those things. I also panicked over my allergy to strawberries, but that only came up once.

Food from home // Saving Money

Over the last couple of weeks I had given up on bringing my lunch from phone. I didn’t realize how bad it had become until I looked at my visa bill everyone two weeks and almost started crying. I was spending between $10 and $15 a day on gluten-free sandwiches and salads, that I could just make myself.

On Sunday I headed to the grocery store to grab some food for the next few weeks for lunch. I took what I had been buying from take-out places (turkey and tuna sandwiches with salads) and decided to make them myself to see what the true cost would be if I made my lunch every day.
