ACD Update: A Return to Sweetness

[Recent ACD-friendly dinner: Gena’s Raw Cream of Zucchini Soup].

It’s now been approximately five months since I began this round of the ACD, and, over this time, I’ve slowly been coming to the realization that, well, it’s not likely to end any time soon.

As I may have mentioned before, […]

[Simple dal with basmati rice on dandelion greens. . . definitely ACD friendly!]

How Elsie Achieved What I Could Not

[“Can you guess why I’m so happy?”]

Last week, we took Elsie for her annual checkup at the vet (a place she absolutely loves–go figure). At the end of the appointment, the vet pronounced her an ideal specimen of canine health. Not only that; Elsie had lost nine pounds since […]

What To Do With The Weight When You Lose It

Here’s how I was going to start this blog entry:
