Chicken or Turkey Pot Pie

My recipes are grain free, refined sugar free and many are dairy free.

I am thankful that I can write my blog an stick it in queue to be posted on a specific date. How nice it is that because of this I can sit back and relax on Thanksgiving day and the day after. It will be nice to relax a little and then start prepping for Santa Lucia and Christmas. Santa Lucia is the next holiday we will celebrate in our house. I will write a little more about this Scandinavian holiday as we get closer to the date of December 13. I have holiday recipes that I can’t wait to make.

I am hoping that all my readers got to have Thanksgiving with family and friends. That you are all doing well and enjoying some family time. I do want to reach out to any going through a rough time this holiday season as it is the most difficult time of year for many. I have a brother who has suffered from depression for many years. If you are experiencing any depression PLEASE REACH OUT TO SOMEONE. Or check out the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline or call them at 1-800-273-8255 in the USA. I am glad you are here. Keep hanging on. If you know anyone who is suffering depression reach out to them and let them know that you are glad they are here. I am sorry that you are experiencing depression this time of year or any time of year. Perhaps if we all reached out we can help someone through their depression.

I want to let all my readers know how very appreciative I am for you all. Thanks for uplifting me just by reading my blog. I am happy that many of you appreciate and like my recipes. I am glad I can help others who are on my dietary journey to eat better and healthier but to also be able to maintain a diet free from grains and refined sugar. Thanks for taking the time to read my humble blog.
