Welcome to my little corner of the blogosphere. I am Carolyn, the writer and recipe developer behind All Day I Dream About Food, a mostly low carb, gluten free food blog. I have a Masters in Physical Anthropology and Human Evolution from Arizona State University and an extensive background in higher education administration. I now work from home and parent three young children, and it’s hard to know which takes up more of my time, the children or the blog.
The way I see it, I didn’t choose the low carb lifestyle, it chose me. After being diagnosed with gestational diabetes during my third pregnancy, I began watching my carb intake. And when the diabetes decided to stick around, I refused to give up my lifelong passion for baking and cooking. I just had to find new ways to do it. To my delight, I have discovered that with a little ingenuity and some perseverance, many high carb recipes can be made over into low carb treats without sacrificing flavor. I’ve had quite a bit of success, with a few outright failures thrown in to keep me humble.
I started sharing recipes on my blog for fun, but it has quickly grown to be a serious commitment with many followers and readers. All Day I Dream About Food is devoted to bringing readers creative, flavorful foods that are low in carbohydrates and suitable for diabetics and dieters alike. Most of the recipes are also gluten-free. There are a handful of conventional flour-and-sugar recipes as well, as I enjoy indulging my friends and family once in a while.
I hope you enjoy what you see here. Do feel free to comment and if you would like to contact me directly with comments or suggestions, you may email me at [email protected]
