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 firstname.lastname@example.org
