by Slynnro After years of having an internal debate about when to eat relative to my workout schedule, I've finally adopted a later dinner time. This was a HARD FOUGHT battle.I'm finally able to wait until 8:00pm, after my classes are done, to eat dinner. But at around 5:00pm, when... Continue reading

by Slynnro I've waxed poetically before on my blog about my obsession with Late July chips, and Caitlin has blogged about their ranch chips on Food Lush as well (confession: I'm the only sorority girl on earth that hates Ranch things). I have quietly been inhaling bag after bag of... Continue reading

by Slynnro Last night, I dined at a Seasons 52 for the first time. For those of you unfamiliar with their dining concept, all dishes on the menu have fewer than 475 calories. Seasons 52 refers to itself as a "Fresh Grill," and they do so with serious conviction when... Continue reading

by Slynnro Even prior to going GF, I generally avoided granola (not granola bars, I love those, but Granola GRANOLA) because holy crap, one second you're enjoying a delicious healthy snack and then two minutes later, you have just inhaled 750 calories and 50 grams of fat. However, over Thanksgiving... Continue reading

by Slynnro Well, after a brief work-induced hiatus, I'm back and from now on I will be bringing you my favorite gluten-free finds (and anything I find that is NOT worth the investment). Hopefully, the finds I bring here will be delicious enough for the non-gluten intolerant amongst us, as... Continue reading

by Slynnro This weekend I traveled to New York City, not for BlogHer per se, but because BlogHer was there. I hung out with some of my blogging besties, Rhi Kristin and Regan, who also happen to be food-loving besties. On Saturday night, we dined at Bar Americain, which is... Continue reading

by Slynnro I haven't had my own birthday cake in years. The last time was in 2006, when Aaron purchased for me a delicious cake from a local bakery, Cretia's. My old employer used them for office birthday cakes, and I quickly became obsessed. Back in 2006, pre-gluten intolerance, I... Continue reading

by Slynnro This weeked, I dined at two of my local favorites for dinner. I've been dining at both of these establishments for years now, and they never fail to please. The first is a neighborhood favorite in my 'hood, Uptown Dallas. The State and Allen Lounge sits among a... Continue reading

by Slynnro A while back, the restaurant Bolsa opened up in the latest gentrified Dallas area du jour, the Bishop Arts District, to much fanfare. I still have not enjoyed dinner there, but as it is near my office, it a frequent stop for Friday Fancy Lunch. I love the... Continue reading

by Slynnro I've been struggling a lot lately with my diet. No, I haven't been gaining weight. I haven't been losing weight. My struggle relates to what I publically, and Food Lush-ally, refer to as my "gluten intolerance." While gluten is the primary culprit in my digestive troubles, it goes... Continue reading

by Slynnro Editor's note: Slynnro received a complimentary package direct from Michelob, well-suited because of her gluten-free diet and gluten-free posts at Food Lush. This review is completelySlynnro's, though, and neither she nor Food Lush received compensation for this post. *** I haven't always been the coolest girl in the... Continue reading

by Slynnro So last Saturday I made a pretty important purchase at the Target. Yes, ladies and gentlemen. A Sunbeam Snow Cone Maker. Go get one of these right now. It makes the PERFECT shaved ice. Target also sells fun paper cones and all kinds of syrups for your snow... Continue reading

by Slynnro As long as I've been writing here at Food Lush, I've been quite honest about my ... lack of interest in cooking. When you don't have a large family, cooking can often feel like a waste if it's not something you find particularly enjoyable. And as someone who... Continue reading

by Slynnro Taco shops are the latest Dallas food trend. You can't swing a Neiman Marcus bag without hitting one. Which is why it takes a decent amount of Taco Shop Buzz for me to pay attention to any new contenders. So after every single one of my Facebook friends... Continue reading

by Slynnro While I've made great strides in revamping my diet to be healthier and more balanced and veggie-centric, I still have a hard time getting motivated to cook meals that include a main dish AND sides AND vegetables all at once. This is especially difficult during busy work weeks,... Continue reading

by Slynnro When a non-gluten free friend tells you about something gluten free that she found and loved, you have to check it out. Because that chick could totally have some delicious gluten and forewent it for something else. That's kind of a big deal. So that was how I... Continue reading

by Slynnro Because my favorite hobbies include going through phases where I try to save money by bringing my lunch and ironically, spending all of my money on pricey gluten free bread products, I have yet another gluten free bread find for you all. Against The Grain Vermont Country Rolls!... Continue reading

by Slynnro As I am wont to do, I'm currently in a Major Phase with a certain salad from a local restaurant, Cafe Express. The salad I'm obsessed with is not particularly unique, but damn it's good. After spending, no kidding, $65.00 eating this salad six times last week, I... Continue reading

by slynnro I stumbled across the site for French Bull recently, and I am OBSESSED! After purchasing a variety of melanine plates, they are my new go-to cheap way to add some fun to meals. And after going a little CRAZY at the Missoni for Target sale, I'm also completely... Continue reading

by Slynnro As a gluten-free person, who eats many meals with a person whose favorite food is pizza, it can be somewhat stressful to find Italian dining options. If I hear "But you can have a salad!" one more time about eating at an Italian eatery, well, it won't be... Continue reading

by Slynnro Ah, the halcyon days of GLUTENTASTIC yore, when I could eat a Skinny Cow ice cream sandwich (or let's be honest, TWO Skinny Cows). I miss them desperately. I've longed for an ice cream sandwich that met my gluten free needs, but the likelihood of me baking gluten... Continue reading

by Slynnro Despite my kitchen weaknesses, I happen to have two really wonderful friends who have amazing kitchen skills. The first is my friend Kate, whom I have introduced you to in the past. The second in Maggie, The Freckled Citizen, who is not only a super wonderful person, but... Continue reading

by Slynnro I....don't like bread pudding. This has disappointed many people over the course of my life, but now that I have my whole gluten issue, at least I have a real legit excuse not to eat it. It's a texture thang. Anyway, I've tried numerous bread puddings -- at... Continue reading

by Slynnro On Saturday night, I dined at Private Social, former Top Chef contestant Tiffany Derry's new Uptown Dallas restaurant. It was a delicious meal, and reasonably priced (for a high end restaurant). My dinner companion and I had an appetizer, shared a salad, two entrees, one side, one dessert... Continue reading
