Friday

Scrambled eggs with spinach, goat cheese, and avocado. Smoothie time! Waited too long to post and now I don’t remember what I put in it. I think bananas, cherries, carob, maca, and dates. Alkalizing greens: kale, cucumber, yellow pepper, apples. Leftover moqueca (Brazilian fish stew). Spinach, cranberries, and goat cheese in orange vinaigrette. Carrot-beet juice. […]

Feeling fantastic today. Got a great night’s sleep (9 1/2 hours!) and woke up energized and refreshed. This energy lasted ALL. DAY. LONG. I did not experience a single slump (which is unheard of!) When baby girl went down for her nap, I deep cleaned the bathrooms. I also mowed the front lawn as a […]

Sunday

Physically, feeling about the same as yesterday. Emotionally, feeling much better. Amazing service at church today. Feel recharged and ready to keep fighting. Also came across this statement in my devotional from Joyce Meyer: “It has been said that fear is the opposite of faith, and that is true. We can’t live in faith and […]

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. […]

Thursday

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 […]

Wednesday

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!) […]

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 […]

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. Generally […]

Tuesday

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. […]
