My new life: Lyme, Gluten and Sugar...

It's been a long time since I've blogged a recipe. Mostly because of summer festivities, and also because I was recently diagnosed with Lyme Disease. Crazy, I know. But yes I was bitten by a tick while hiking in Big Sur, CA.
So, back to the diet. My doc has told me no sugar and no gluten. Say what? But that's all I eat! I love pasta and candy! It's been an adjustment, but I HAVE to do this. There's no other option if I want to heal. I am not 100% super strict, because I don't
have celiac, (I'm just putting that out there so that I don't get a bunch of posts from people telling me I'm doing it wrong.) I also realize that there is residual sugar in a lot of everyday foods, (again, I'm not 100%, just doing the best I can. If I can
keep my total sugar consumption under 10grams in 24hours, I'm doing pretty good!)
The hardest part of this whole thing is finding gluten AND sugar free. It's nearly impossible in pre-packaged foods, so I need to cook everything myself so that I can control ingredients.
Today I'm going to attempt gluten free, sugar free pumpkin bread. I am soooooooo excited, that you don't even know. I have been eating raw veggies, eggs and cheese for two weeks. This is a huge treat!
p.s. I am open to new recipes!
