My name is Andrew Muller, and I’m the guy who writes all the stuff on this website.
That includes all the recipes, articles, and that genius flare of personality you all get to experience while finding your favorite sugar free foods.
Why Sugar Free?
When I was 12 years old I came down with Appendicitis, as well as an extremely painful bowel disease. My body was put out of commission for a good month and I had a major surgery.
Since that time, my body has slowly deteriorated into…well…a fairly awful state.
By the time I was 16, I was sick almost all the time. I suffered from awful bloating, Diarrhea, and my stomach hurt almost everyday.
I finally decided to do some research into it, and eventually self-diagnosed myself with lactose-intolerance.
When I took the milk out of my diet, my health improved dramatically. I was actually doing quite fine…
…for a month or two.
And then my health started to drop back down again. I got sick, and started looking for other things to take out of my diet.
I found another thing, and took it out of my diet. A month or two later my health got worse…and on…and on…and on…
This continually happened for 3 years. I finally got 3 separate allergy tests done on me, and found that I had a list of over 30 allergies. There include:
- String Beans
- Wax Beans
- Dried Fruit
- Sugar (Brown)
- Sugar (White)
Now some of these things I am greatly allergic to (like milk, sugar, corn) and some I’m not so allergic to (Like Tea or Tomato’s), but they all have some sort of effect on me.
So you can see that eating in general is a difficult thing for me.
And that’s why I started this site.
Update: Since I started this site, my intestinal health has greatly increased to the point where many of my sensitivities listed above do not even bother me any more. I still have to be careful with things like Milk, but I can often have some (in moderation) without even worrying anymore! Thank God.
Music is my number 2 lifelong passion (next to my relationship with God), and I plan to do it forever.
I love writing, creating, exploring, and recording music. It’s a pleasure to talk about philosophy and psychology and politics with other artists, and just being able to explore myself as an individual and find out what makes me tick.
I’ve been in bands, and I also do my own solo music.
Some Other Endeavors
Along the subject of music, I run TheRealMusician.com, and try to update it whenever I can.
I have a rapidly growing retro game collection (SNES & N64 mainly). I’m exploring new passions of photography, film, video game development, programming, live performance, and a whole lot more.
Enough about me though. Go make some delicious recipes!
