GlutenFreeTV with Amy Green: Simply Sugar & Gluten Free

Monday, June 27th, 2011 by Stephanie O'Dea

Amy Green: Simply Sugar & Gluten Free

Welcome to another edition of GlutenFreeTV! Our last episode was with Shirley Braden, of Gluten Free Easily (GFE), and I’m so happy to have with us today Amy Green.

Amy Green completely revamped her diet after being plagued with migraine headaches that wouldn’t go away, lethargy, and an overall feeling of ickiness.

She cut all gluten and refined white sugar. The end result: no more headaches, no more brain fog, an uber-impressive 80 pound weight loss, a successful website, and a new cookbook! GO AMY GO!

Amy shares her story and answers questions that newbies have when they first decide to completely change their diet. It’s scary!

Amy and her publisher have graciously agreed to host a giveaway for her new cookbook. If you’d like to enter, please leave a comment below. I’ll pick a winner (randomly) on July 5th at 5pm pacific.

Enjoy the interview— Amy is wonderful, and I know you’ll think so too.

episode 6: Laura Wittman, I’m an Organizing Junkie

Real Moms Making Real Money (at home, in their pajamas) And How You Can, too!


Good morning! I’m thrilled to share with you today an interview with Laura, from I’m an Organizing Junkie. Laura has been blogging for over 5 years (a blogging dinosaur!) and shares how she manages her time, the art of saying no, how she handles guilt, and how her new book: Clutter Rehab came alive. Laura makes income through her site, through her relationship with Open Sky, through her booksales, and with her home organization skills.

Laura is an absolute joy, and I just loved doing this interview. I’ve followed Laura’s site for years, and her Menu Planning Monday roundups are an Internet sensation.

Like all of my interviews, this one has a few quirks. :-0 There’s some weed-whacking happening in the background, a few giggly kids, and Laura and I go off topic here and there…

which means? it’s perfect.

Thank you, Laura, for being you— in your writing, in your real life, and with us.
