We are living in a very interesting time right now.
Some people are working from home, while others have lost their jobs.
Some are enjoying their new relaxed days, while others now have even more on their plate.
Most are realizing how hard teachers really work as they try to navigate the waters of homeschooling.
Wherever you land – it is definitely a new normal.
The thing that struck me is that I have always wanted more time with my family at home and now that has been given to me.
There’s still a lot going on with working at home and online school for all three children – from elementary to college. But, truth be told, I love having everyone home and NOT running to so many places every day. More time to learn and bond together!

Let’s Start Creating Your
BEST Gluten-Free Life:
*Set up your Gluten-Free Kitchen
Surprisingly, setting up your safe gluten-free kitchen is a step too many leave out of their gluten-free life. This can make a huge difference. Move away from often being sick or “glutened” in your own kitchen, to feeling amazing so that you can cook and bake with ease in a safe and healthy kitchen.
It is really important to set up your kitchen for safety, support, and success for your gluten-free life. This is something I help my clients do and would love to walk you through the steps. Believe me, when this is in place, your GF life is good!
*Set up your Gluten-Free Pantry
Your pantry can be an area of true cross-contamination and continue to make you sick without you even realizing it. Setting it up correctly and filling it with healthy alternatives gives you peace of mind and a healthier kitchen.
Need help setting up your GF pantry? I teach my clients great tips and strategies to help stop cross-contamination in their kitchen so that they can live a healthy GF life.

*Teens in the house? Time for College searching?
Use this time to start researching gluten-free colleges together to prepare for your next steps in education.
Unfortunately, right now colleges are closed and tours have been canceled. We’re very disappointed to miss out on all the tours we had scheduled for my son. Hopefully, some virtual tours can still be taken to still give us a peek. Check online to see what your college choices are offering.

*Get in the Kitchen with your Family
Learn and have some fun by getting your kids in the kitchen with you. Did you know that when kids cook their meals, they are more likely to eat them – more veggies!!
Yes, this is true. Now that we are teaching our children at home, getting in the kitchen can be a fun time had by all. There is a lot of math to be found in the kitchen with measuring and mixing, life skills for cooking and baking, and of course, reading the recipes. Get lucky (like me) and your kids will even bake you a cake on their own!
