Day 2: Gluten Free Dairy Free Frittata

{By Ellery Sadler}

Wow. This is harder than I thought. For the first couple of meals I felt like a cool person who was trying cool recipes. Now it’s a little harder. Of course, I understand that gluten and dairy aren’t ‘evil’ but I’ve just realized that I eat a lot more of it than I need to, hence the four day cleanse.

For dinner I decided to make crustless quiches or frittatas (whichever you like to call them) and I was delightfully surprised by how great these tasted! Contrary to popular belief, eggs are not dairy so you can indeed eat these on a gluten free dairy free diet.

The Monsters In My Kitchen: A 4 Day Dairy Free Gluten Free Challenge

{By Ellery Sadler}

dairy free gluten free recipes

Everyone knows monsters don’t hide under your bed or in your closet (unless you live in the world of Monsters Inc.), but I found two in my kitchen. Dairy and gluten. They’re both deceptively delicious and hidden in just about everything. They look like friends but they are really foe (and that’s the scariest of all, right?).  Now, personally, I would have thought my monster would be sugar. But in reality, dairy and gluten make up a shocking amount of my diet.

So for four days I’m not eating gluten or dairy.

Medications + Makeup + Me

{By Caitlin Muir}

For as long as I can remember, I’ve had this fear. Of being ugly. First it was the battle of chicklet teeth. Then the horrible hair era. But just when it was getting oh so good, it took a turn for the worst.
I was eighteen when I started getting acne.
I did everything I could to hide it. Medications + Makeup became my mantra. While it was never severe, the angry red splotches stood out against my milky twilight-white skin like warning signs to those who passed by. Acne is an imperfection that I’ve never wanted to embrace.

7 Ways to Beat Wasting Your Time in the Gym

{By Taylor Eckel}

In college, one of my professors was known to do yard work in his work clothes because he didn’t want to waste time changing. I can’t help but think that wielding a chainsaw whilst wearing a sport coat and tie might be counterproductive, but I admire his motivation. You see, I am a chronic time-waster. I’ve been really convicted that time-wasting is one of the primary ways I fail to bring God glory, and this is especially true when it comes to my time in the gym.

How Running Through the Seasons Changed My Perspective

{By Samantha Roose}

One of my favorite things about exercising outside is watching the seasons change before my eyes. 

Yesterday, I ran through a giant’s tiara as crystal branches defied their lifeless state.  Today, straggly and leafless, the trees remind me of death.  Stepping out in a few days I know I will be greeted by tiny green shoots promising new life.

Why Christians Need to Be Healthy

{By Taylor Eckel}

At this point, we could take this discussion in a number of directions. I could share how-to tips for a short-term cleanse or longer-term diet, I could talk about counting calories and eating real foods. But the fact is, that information is widely available across the web, and those discussions are very outward-focused, and here at InsideOut, we want to dig a little deeper.

Let’s look beyond our dinner plates and our pants sizes, and examine our hearts.

Diary of a Newbie Runner: Zombie Pigs & Pit Bulls

{By Ellery Sadler}

Why do I never just have a pleasant, somewhat painless run? Without harrowing experiences or dead frogs or zombie pigs?

It started out like such a lovely run. 57 degrees and sunny, on the beach. I mean, seriously, what is better than running on the beach? (Yeah, I know, just sitting on the beach. But we’re talking about the world of exercising here.) So anyway, my mom and my sister and I head out.

Super Bowl Sunday 2014: What You Need to Make for the Big Game

{By Carolyn Barber}

superbowl 2014

I’m not the kind of girl who freaks out over the band playing the Halftime show; it doesn’t make a difference to me.

I’m not that girl who only watches the Super Bowl for the commercials. (It’s not that the commercials aren’t fantastic, because they are.)

I am the girl who watches football for the simple fact that it is the best sport on planet Earth.
