Spring Fever

Spring is finally here. After all these grey cold days we've had a clear blue sky and sunshine almost 7 days in a row. The thermometer even hit the 30 degree mark today. Okay, it was plain sunshine on our balcony but who cares? People have been waiting for this for too long, spending as much time as possible outside.

It's time for a smoothie.

I actually got addicted to smoothies during my time in Australia. It's just perfect on a warm summer's day. And when I close my eyes I can still feel the Australian sun shining on my face.


1 cup plain yoghurt (I use low-fat)
1 banana
1/2 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
1/4 cup orange juice (Apple juice works beautifully. I just can't have it any more because of my sorbitol intolerance.)

If you use fresh berries add a couple of ice cubes. Put all ingredients in a blender and pulse for about one minute. Fill into glasses and enjoy immediately! Serves two.

Fellow gluten free blogger,

I'm staring a carnival blog as a one-stop shopping place for gluten free information. A blog carnival is like a magazine of articles that gets published on a schedule. Every 3 months (I hope it catches on so that we can do this more often – at least monthly), bloggers submit an article related to the GF lifestyle from their blog. The submission will be combined with all others onto 1 carnival page, which will include links to each participant’s article on their own blog (so you retain the rights to the post, and your trademarks stay intact). We can all take turns being the host blogger (if you are interested in hosting, let me know!). We hope that we can all learn from each other and introduce our readers to other gluten free sites out there.
If you’d like to see a sample carnival, check out http://allergickid.blogspot.com/2009/06/living-with-food-allergies-blog.html.

Joining the community of contributors is a great way to get more readers to your blog. It's easy to do. Just follow the below link and fill in the quick form linking one of your best blog posts to the carnival page. Topic areas will include recipes, tips, research, advice/support, etc. Your post will be posted along with contributions from other GF bloggers.

The deadline for the next carnival is July 25, 2009. Be sure to let your readers know about the first carnival. It'll be posted on August 1st at http://thefoodallergycoach.blogspot.com/.

Looking forward to reading your post,
