Running on Faith, Prayers, and Determination

At GfreeDeliciously, my greatest heart desire is to help others find encouragement and fulfillment, learn, grow, and embrace their unique self through a balance of healthy lifestyle strategies and faith-based living. I will teach you how to make easy, nutritious meals and provide practical encouragement to nourish your body and soul.

As I’m writing this, it occurred to me that some of you might wonder, ‘What’s up with calling the blog posts “Revelations” anyway? It’s a funny name, don’t you think?’

I’d have to agree; it may sound somewhat strange. However, in many other ways, it seems very fitting. The name ‘Revelations’ sums up so many of the blog posts.

First, this is the place on the website where everything in my vision coincides. Second, I live and work in an area of Central Wisconsin known as the Holylands. So, overall, the name Revelations makes perfect sense to me. Hopefully, now it also makes perfect sense to you.

In these posts, I hope to inspire, encourage, and challenge folks to eat healthy while sharing what God has taught me spiritually and physically over the years to reach a healthy balance of being gluten-free.

This is the historical timeline of my recipes and all the BIG’ Aha-ha Moments’ where I share my bright ideas and hope to share helpful advice. It’s also where I’ll pass along some nifty tips and techniques from my personal experience of getting healthier, working on getting and staying in shape, and doing it all according to His plan in a faith-based way. I can tell you that it’s always been about running on faith, prayers, and determination to guide me every day.

All in all, GfreeDeliciously is created to inspire your own “GfreeWellness” to get you feeling fit and healthy for life while enjoying the journey!

Simple Hacks on How to Store and Freeze Raw and Cooked Sausage and Brats

Never allow raw meat, including sausage and brats, to sit out at room temperature for more than two hours and only one hour if the air temperature is above 90°F. Bacteria multiply rapidly in unrefrigerated food. In addition, if left unrefrigerated, some organisms can create toxins that will survive the cooking process even if they cook to temperatures that kill the bacteria themselves.

Being creative, cooking, fresh veggies, the violin, decorating for holidays, sewing, hand-quilting, cowgirl boots, country music, fresh herbs in pots, blowing dandelions to the wind, walking barefoot in the grass, hanging out with eclectic interesting people, reading, writing, warm lazy summer days, and yoga!

Gluten, cilantro, mixed vegetables (the frozen kind I grew up with), negativism, rudeness, narcissism, overstaying a welcome,
not helping out, liars, promiscuity, cockiness, know-it-alls, being overly-dramatic, goal-less-ness, poor hygiene, chauvinism, lacking a sense of humor, excessive competitiveness, Laziness, horrifying spellers, people-bashing, criticism and mockery of others and their beliefs, flakiness (because flaky people are really unappealing), more swagger than substance, people who constantly manage others (those folks who think they have all the answers…)

Lambrusco, my iPad, popcorn suppers, dark chocolate, cookbooks, Almond-Rocca, historical romances, sun-bathing, weekend coffee with a good book in bed, PBS cooking shows, romantic comedies, cozy sweaters, fuzzy socks, and fragrant bubble baths with soft music and wine…

Meet Kymberley [Upson] Pekrul

A professional writer and self-taught Gfree lifestyle expert on [most] gluten-free things, I’ve always loved cooking and creating delicious foods from scratch for myself and those I love.

My journey began when everything I thought I knew about cooking and eating suddenly changed one day when I discovered I was celiac. So, I re-learned how to eat, cook, and navigate through life gluten-free – trusting God and His plan for me.

I live in what’s known as the Holylands of Central Wisconsin. All the recipes you’ll find here are gluten-free and inspired by the people and places I love most. Whenever possible, I cook with seasonal ingredients using whole foods – Making dishes suitable for everyday life and all food lovers gathered at the same table.

Gfree cooking, health, and wellness ARE my life. And this little corner of the internet is where I share what I’ve learned – Where my passion IS to nourish everyday GfreeDeliciously!
