  • Summary

    When I first saw Brenda’s photos on Instagram (@gfreegooniegirl76), I was enthralled. Every one of her food photos made me ravenous and desiring a taste. I wished I could eat the screen of my phone. Brenda has had many challenges with food allergies. Nearly 12 years ago, she felt like food was killing her because she couldn’t eat anything without extreme pain. Traditional medicine ran test after test, but couldn’t find anything wrong. Yet, she was suffering, malnourished, and miserable. For 3 years, she stuck to a strict diet of eating just 8-10 basic foods that wouldn’t hurt her. Finally, she was able to start to slowly introduce a few more foods and has self-taught herself how to cook. She’s still very regimented with what she can and cannot eat based on her food intolerances. However, Brenda has learned how to make simple food absolutely delicious, nourishing, and healthy! She’s an inspiration to me. You must check out her Instagram page: @gfreegooniegirl76. While she doesn’t have a blog, yet, she shares how to make her recipes and they are amazing! You will Definitely enjoy these Homemade Peanut Butter Cups by Brenda @gfreegooniegirl76.
