Cinnamon rolls!!! Fantastic recipe from Nourishing Meals. Made with buckwheat flour. No gluten, no eggs, no soy, no dairy, no processed sugar. Topped it with their recipe for “cream cheese” frosting, made with sweet potatoes, applesauce, coconut oil, arrowroot, maple syrup, and vanilla. Crazy delicious. I made a double batch of the frosting to freeze […]

Leftover egg-free whole grain waffles for breakfast. With avocado, pear, and kiwi sprinkled with lime juice and hemp seeds. Had a moment today between breakfast and lunch when I felt like my blood sugar suddenly plummeted and I got weak, shaky, and sweaty, and felt an urgent need to eat something. This used to happen […]

Breakfast was millet porridge, with leftover cooked millet, almond milk, vanilla, stevia, pie spices, and pomegranate seeds. After a couple of hours messing around in the garden, I was exhausted and hot. This pomegranate chia fresca was the perfect solution. Sweet and hydrating, and the chia seeds are like little balls of energy. Totally reinvigorated […]

Had a great day. Intense service at church, then got some one on one time with the hubs. Not much improvement in my mouth, but it’s certainly not any worse, and my energy level was high all day. So I’m extremely happy and grateful for all of that. As soon as the sun went down […]

Feeling great this morning! Mouth is significantly better (thanks to all who were praying for me!) Excited to try this recipe from Nourishing Meals. (You can buy the book here- http://www.nourishingmeals.com/ – it’s awesome.) Based on what I’m reading in The Immune System Recovery Plan, I’m considering a more strict elimination diet. I’ve realized that dairy […]

Woke up feeling great again today. Until I started to pay attention to what’s going on in my mouth. Tongue is swollen, and upper lip is visibly swollen because of a lesion near the gum line. Thrush is still going strong, and there are lots of smaller lesions with the potential to become more problematic. […]

Woke up feeling great, despite not getting much sleep. My body didn’t cooperate with my attempt at getting to sleep early last night. But I think I may have gotten my toddler on an earlier schedule now, so that was the first step anyway. I’ll try again tonight. Had the breakfast bowl filled with brown […]

The last of the coconut […]

Happy Mother’s Day! I’m feeling great again! It’s amazing how being sick for an extended period of time makes “normal” or “not sick” feel so much better than you remember. Ecstatic. Smoothie time! Coconut Banana Breakfast Cake. Thanks, Nourishing Meals! Totally grain free. I did add a tablespoon of coconut sugar since my bananas weren’t […]

I’m on a roll- feeling great 3 days in a row! Have another busy day today. Breakfast is a bowl of brown rice, diced roasted carrots and parsnips, an egg, avocado, and raw sauerkraut. Had a picnic for lunch. Sorry no photo (forgot). It was pecan crusted chicken strips drizzled with honey (local, raw) mustard […]

Feeling great again today. My husband made breakfast. There’s spinach, cheese, and ham in that omelet. I topped it off with raw sauerkraut to aid in digestion. Notice one of the strawberries is shaped like kissing lips. Lol. That’s my husband being cute. Spending the afternoon at a water park, so I’m bringing this stuff […]

Woke up feeling great today, despite not sleeping well last night. Determined to take full advantage of it! Quick breakfast before a play date. This is now one of my favorites. Brown rice and diced pepper, two fried eggs, avocado, and raw sauerkraut (getting in those fermented veggies with lots of good probiotics!) Felt a […]

Tongue is slightly less swollen this morning. Lesions all still in the healing process- all seem to be on the way out rather than getting worse. And I just realized this morning that I cannot remember the last time I had bad night sweats. That’s pretty significant. Not sure what may have caused that change. […]

Monday

Mini quiches with sweet potato crust from nourishing meals. Used a yellow and zucchini squash and spinach for the veggies. And several herbs from my garden: sage, chives, oregano, thyme, and basil. </a They were taking too long in the oven, so I ate this while waiting. That’s earth balance spread on gf toast and […]

Woke up with a headache this morning. Thinking it’s partially due to dehydration and partially due to blood sugar imbalance because of my sweet, high carb dinner last night. I drank lots of water and had this for breakfast (brown rice with sautéed beet greens and an organic egg)… and the headache immediately started to […]

Lunch was random leftover veggies. Roasted cauliflower […]

Feeling good today! 🙂 Golden beet greens and garlic omelet and spiralized sautéed sweet potato. My omelets never come out looking like omelets, so I’m very proud of this one. Healthy chocolate shake: handful of macadamia nuts, frozen banana, almond milk, sexy hot chocolate mix (raw cacao, carob, and maca), and a few drops of […]
