Arthritis has changed the way I eat. I went on an anti-inflammatory diet several years ago as a last ditch attempt to control my arthritis. Modifying the diet helped a lot. Then I went on the Paleo diet. All of my pain has stopped :)
My favorite things to cook
Meat and vegetables are the majority of my diet. I also like to work with making grain free, low sugar desserts and breads.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Scandinavian specialties such as lefse, rosettes, and lox all have a special place in my heart. Too bad only the lox works on the diet.
My cooking triumphs
I have been on an anti-inflammatory diet for five years and have eliminated my need for painkillers and NSAIDS. Learning a new way to cook on a daily basis and consistently applying it has been my greatest triumph in the kitchen.
My cooking tragedies
Accidentally melting a rubber spatula into a batch of fudge when I was eight.
