    If There's A Will, There's A Way!

    I am on a journey to become a gluten-free Vegan. What a mouthful to say! It was at the suggestion of my endocrinologist actually. I have Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, and autoimmune reaction to casein and gluten. I asked what she though about the Paleo lifestyle, and she said it...
