It’s official! My husband thinks I went nuts. Actually, I kinda did, to be exact everything almonds: almond meal, blanched almond flour, raw almonds…. To be perfectly honest with you, I never used to appreciate almonds as much as I do now. What’s changed? Pretty much my daily life (mean when it comes to eating). I recently have discovered that my thyroid disease can be related to wheat and gluten intake ( I will write more on the issue later).  So I’ve made a pledge (to myself) to stay away from grains and gluten and see how I feel. Of course, it turned my world upside down, or actually straightened it up. Since it’s still hard to get rid of certain things I am used to and love, I’ve managed to find recipes from people that have been in my shoes, and have created great healthy recipes to make our lives sweet. So I’ve made carrot cake cupcakes today. They are completely grain and gluten free, and sooooo yummy.  I adapted the recipe from Elana’s Pantry
