Well… What can I say, too much came my way!

I was glad to see the back of 2012, with my AS (Ankylosing Spondylitis) Diagnosis and living through Super Storm Sandy I really felt a better year had to be on its way for us… Seems 2013 did not change. My posts have been sporadic and I want to change that but I didn’t want it to be doom and gloom all the time!

January 2013 my daughter aged 12 was diagnosed with a Chronic Disease of the joints which presented as Severe Arthritis, the past few months have been depressing, stressing and chaotic.

I am going to start another blog totally dedicated to living with Ankylosing Spondylitis and Juvenile Spondyloarthropathies… Our journey I hope will bring some awareness of both diseases and what we have learned in this short pace of time.


I will return to blogging here about whatever comes my way and I am hoping for some laughs and giggles….


Starch Free Diet ~ AS London Diet

I have recently been diagnosed with AS (Ankylosing Spondylitis)…. and whilst I wait for my 2nd opinion and optional treatment plan I have decided to follow the AS London Diet to see if it will help.

I can tell you living on a Starch Free Diet for a lady who loves Bread and Crisps is going to be one of the hardest things I will do but if it helps with the daily aches without medication then I am willing to live this way.

This morning I decided to return to my blog, posting daily meal ideas for those also living this way. I am finding the hardest part in deciding what to eat.

This morning I made Coconut Pancakes, they were nice. I am finding that my love of anything Coconut is going to help me. Coconut Flour is Starch Free!

I am panicking already about my afternoon as I have a cold and am craving Salty Crunchy Crisps and cheese!

If you are following a starch free diet please follow me and share with me any tips you have.

Here is a link to the recipe I followed for my pancakes this morning.
