Sweater season has arrived! I love fall. I’ll probably spend more time outdoors since the air is dryer and the temperature cooler. This morning, my parents and I ate breakfast on the patio, then I lied out on the grass for awhile. The heat bothers me – not just because it’s uncomfortable, but also because humidity can increase inflammation.
The Topsfield Fair starts at the end of the month, and I think I’ll go this year, although it will be difficult to not buy a cider donut or fried dough. Sighhh.
I can at least enjoy hot apple cider this fall, mmm. Maybe cook with pumpkins too? And in the cooler weather, I won’t be as reluctant to use the oven, so I’ll be able to have a greater variety of food – I can use almond flour for baking and will be able to make crackers, muffins, bread, etc. A version of them, anyways. Still no sugar or sweeteners allowed! But dates can add some natural sweetness and I found a blog that has recipes that only use dates as a sweetener.
My life rotates around food, it seems.
