For the past three months we have been experimenting with a different way of eating, based on Know The Cause.  It hasn’t always been a lot of fun, but I did lose ten pounds, which puts me at my pre-children weight.  That part was a lot of fun. =)  Along the way we have found some delicious gluten-free, kosher, fungus free, organic recipes to share and I thought it was about time… so get your printer ready!  You will want to make these ASAP!
