Hi, I'm Kim

Hi, I’m Kim Christensen, M.Om., Dipl.OM, L.Ac. I’m a licensed acupuncturist, herbalist, and owner of Constellation Acupuncture & Healing Arts in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Back before going to school and becoming a healthcare practitioner, Affairs of Living was my creative outlet while healing from chronic health issues. There's big changes coming to the site - it will soon be the home of my new health coaching practice! Stay tuned.

The mighty random number generator has spoken:

The winners of the giveaway of A Year to Eat Freely: 2011 Allergy-Friendly Recipe Calendar are JVegeGirl, who wants to try the Spiced Shepherdess Pie with Lentils first, and Mallory, who wants to give the Sweet Potato Falafel.  Congratulations! I will email you to get your shipping information.  Thanks to everyone who participated in the giveaway, and for all of your enthusiastic and supportive comments! You all made my day.  :)

If you weren't one of the lucky winners of the calendar, don't worry, you can purchase your own copy! Simply go to this page to pay immediately through PayPal, or head on over to my Etsy site. It is $12 + shipping/handling, and 5% of the profits from each sale benefits Turn the Corner Foundation, dedicated to innovative treatments, research, advocacy, and education for Lyme Disease and tick-borne illnesses. 

This 12-month calendar is packed with 17 allergy-friendly, gluten-free recipes, and was written, photographed, and designed by yours truly with lots of love. The recipes are free of gluten, rice, casein, eggs, soy, corn, tree nuts, peanuts, potato, tomato, citrus, shellfish, and cane sugar.  Sure to please vegans and meat-eaters alike, everything is easily adaptable and offer multiple options for seasonings and sweeteners, making it easy to adapt to your tastes and needs.   In addition to great recipes, I've included a tailored ingredients guide to help you navigate the more uncommon ingredients as well as helpful tips and additional recipe suggestions along the way. 

A Year to Eat Freely: 2011 Allergy-Friendly Recipe Calendar - all the pages!

Want more free stuff?

I am also doing one other giveaway this month, for October's SOS Kitchen Challenge, featuring sesame. This month's challenge is being sponsored by iHerb. They offered 1 pound bags of sesame seeds to the first 10 readers who submit recipes and set up an account with them, and at the end of the month we will draw a name for a $50 iHerb shopping spree. Pretty awesome, right? Head over to this month's kick-off post to read all the rules and details and submit a recipe.  You have until October 31 to submit a recipe, so get cookin'! 

And, just as a hint, I have a couple of great giveaways lined up for November of handmade products from family and friends, so stay tuned!

Sorry, no comments/questions allowed right now.
Hi reader! My schedule as full-time grad student with two part-time jobs doesn't allow me the time to manage comments. I hope you enjoy what you find and can figure out answers to any questions you may have. xo
