Gluten Free in Florida: Running, Reading, and Vertoris Pizza!

Sunday was still rainy and in the lower 80s/upper 70s outside. Coming from 100+ degrees in Texas, I actually wore my sweatshirt I brought in the morning! Since it wasn't quite ideal for lounging on the beach yet, I decided to head out for a run. I ran along the road next to a park… Continue reading Gluten Free in Florida: Running, Reading, and Vertoris Pizza!

Morning Coffee with Peanut & Summer Shape Up
