book deal?

You all know about my giving up grains and the great results that I’ve achieved. I have written 36 posts about diet and health. While that isn’t even 1% of my total content, it is one of my top non-Mexico themes. However, I haven’t wanted to start preaching about it and drive you away.  I have been fooling around with writing a book regarding my personal journey towards health and fitness. I use the the phrase fooling around because while I have written an outline and some of the chapters, I haven’t buckled down and written the book.
Examining my motives, I realized that I just really want to get the word out. Like most people who discover a good thing, I feel the need to share it. So rather than writing a book, I am converting my cooking blog into a blog about Being Grain Free in the land of the Tortilla. I’m excited about the idea. Later, I may still write that book.
To start you off, I uploaded a short essay to the cooking blog.

About Theresa Diaz Gray

Born in New York City, I grew up in California, and have lived in 3 countries and 6 states. I'm a first generation Cuban-American who lives in Merida, Yucatan, Mexico. I'm committed to living an abundant and creative life and helping others do so too through DIY!


  1. Carol, if you could up the healthy fats in the food that would help with the hunger issues.Unfortunately, I doubt that the guide lines would support putting butter on the kid’s veggies.

    Krisla, I have come to the conclusion that high fat,low carb and moderate protein is the way to weight (and belly fat loss) and paleo is the way to healthy living. Though I struggle with the lack of legumes and dairy.


  2. This is exciting news Theresa…I’m so pleased you are moving ahead with this, & will look forward to reading your posts. I am one who has learned a lot from your postings on the diet front. I’m veering between Paleo and the Dukan Diet, which does seem to be working for me. But, I love the whole subject and keep writing about it!

  3. I agree about grains and especially carbs. When I am away from my job as a food service director I am not tempted to eat the carbs I do during the school year. I am too tempted by the pizza, soft pretzels and cookies. So in the summer I slim down. Fruits and veges and small amounts of protein are the thing. We have new regulations in the school lunch and breakfast program and I get crazy when parents and students say they are hungry because protein servings have been reduced. But if they ate the fruits and veges they would be fine. And I get upset when people blame Michele Obama. The truth is difficult to swollow…pardon the pun! Just write what you need!

  4. Lee,
    I will get my staff right on it.

  5. Did you say book????? Have your people call my people.
