Monday

Breakfast was homemade granola with almond milk. Lunch was this delicious salad. I’ve been really craving raw leafy greens, but they’re so hard to eat when my tongue is jacked up. There’s a lot of maneuvers and manipulations that go into chewing up lettuce. This salad was worth the effort. It took forever to eat, […]

Totally struggling to stay positive right now. And it just seems ridiculous because I’m not even that sick. This flare is pretty minor. But I guess I had gotten excited that I was seeing progress, so I wasn’t mentally prepared for this setback. Physically, I’m about the same today as yesterday. But emotionally, I’m dragging. […]

Woke up with a pretty swollen lip and tongue. We’re having tropical storm weather. Totally matches my mood and general health today: dreary. Buckwheat cinnamon rolls for breakfast. With sweet potato “cream cheese” frosting. And a mug of ginger tea. That cheers me up a bit. Lunch was leftover and frozen baked spaghetti (gluten free-of […]

Woke up feeling alright despite not sleeping well. Lesions were marginally worse than the previous day, but no big deal. Had granola with pears and almond milk for breakfast, then dragged baby girl out to the farmer’s market with the promise of popcorn (the kettle corn vendors give out little sample cups- she loves them!) […]

For breakfast: sandwich bread with ghee, cinnamon, and coconut sugar. And apples. Lunch was leftover stuffed peppers. And an imuno-build greens drink. I made another batch of homemade granola today. So good. I munched on a LOT of it at various stages of the baking process. Dinner was grassfed steak, rosemary potatoes, and fermented carrots […]

Homemade granola with apples and almond milk. Haven’t been juicing lately (stretching our food budget) so supplementing with this. It’s not the same, but it’s alkalizing. Lunch looked almost identical to a previous meal, so I didn’t bother with a photo. Open faced sandwiches (gf/egg free bread, black bean hummus, big tomato slice, soy free […]

Waffles and apples for breakfast. Actually made the recipe correctly this time. Topped it with ghee and honey. Lunch was an open faced black bean burger with tomato and sprouts, roasted beets, and fermented carrots and cauliflower. Second successful ferment. Woo-hoo! Made four jars of this stuff. When I get the dysbiosis in my gut […]

Woke up with a slightly swollen lip this morning. Not sure if its a reaction to the tiny bit of dairy I had yesterday or something else. I’d had a few very small lesions already, and the swelling is because one of them got worse overnight. All the other lesions (5 of them) are still […]

Breakfast was a yummy avocado fruit bowl with pears, grapes, and hemp seeds. I’d been reading my Clean Eating magazine and they had an article on homemade jellies and jams. They showed these jams on cheese and crackers. It looked delicious, so I satisfied the resulting craving with gf crackers (they do contain some milk […]

I went to bed last night with a barely noticeable headache. I figured I was just tired and it would be gone by morning. When I woke up this morning, it was throbbing so bad it made me nauseas. This was the worst headache I’ve had since I resolved to not take painkillers, and I […]

Tuesday

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 […]

Monday

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 […]

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. […]

Breakfast is an openfaced egg sandwich with gf bread, ghee, romaine, tomato, and sauerkraut. With pear slices and blueberries. Lunch is gluten free, dairy free mac ‘n cheese. Loving this cheese sauce. Have quite a bit leftover. Thinking of adding some salsa or taco seasoning for nacho cheese. Mmmmmm- haven’t had cheese dip in foreverrrrrrr! […]

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 […]

Quinoa muffins and mini-quiche with watermelon. Strawberries and chia pudding. (Yes, I almost forgot the pic. The quiche is missing a couple of bites.) Leftover buckwheat pizza. Alkalizing green juice. Celery, cucumber, apple, ginger, lemon. Pecan crusted chicken on a bed of romaine. Rosemary roasted root veggies. And roasted cauliflower with garlic and onions.
