All Day I Dream About Food

Writer, runner, mother and pre-diabetic, not necessarily in that order.  I am also the evil mastermind behind All Day I Dream About food, a food blog devoted to low carb and gluten-free recipes.  It isn’t about dieting, but it is about creating healthy meals and delectable desserts that won’t send your blood glucose soaring.  My mission is to prove to the world that special diets need not be boring or restrictive, and that low carb, gluten-free dishes can be just as good or better than their sugar and flour-filled counterparts.  It’s astonishing what you can do with a bag of almond flour, a stick of butter, and a willingness to experiment.


I am a self-taught amateur photographer and my recipes and photography have been featured on Women's Health Online, Glamour Online, Relish Magazine and Huffington post, among others.  I  have featured articles in The Diabetes Experience, A Sweet Life Diabetes Magazine, and Easy Eats Magazine, and am contributor to and co-editor of the Low Carbing Among Friends cookbook series.  I currently live, run, cook and blog in the Boston area with my husband and three kids.  You can check out my experiments with low carb baking at All Day I Dream About Food.
