Find Me on BlogLovin!

A dear friend of mine suggested that I put my blog on the Bloglovin app because it’s an easy place to follow multiple blogs from different platforms. This is really pushing it as far as my technical prowess is concerned, but I figured why not give it a try! You can Follow my blog with Bloglovin here….

Snap Back to Reality

After an incredible week at Camp Oasis I drove back to LA on Saturday. I really have no excuse for not posting since then except for the fact that the beach has been calling and errands had to be run, but mostly because HBO Go has a lot of great movies at the moment (27 Dresses…

All I Do Is Eat Eat Eat No Matter What

Friday: Breakfast: 2 hard boiled eggs with salt, a peeled apple with almond butter. Lunch: Leftover spaghetti squash with leftover tomato-less marina with leftover baked chicken with leftover olives. Leftovers. Snack: Shredded coconut. This seems like it’s hard on the inside of my mouth, kind of cuts up my gums. So I should probably stop…

Eat Cute

This week has been a whirlwind. Every night after work I’ve had plans and haven’t had time to do a big trip to the grocery store or cook up a big batch of food. It’s been a lesson in maintaining my diet on the fly which will be the norm once work kicks into full…

How Ignoring My Disease Led Me to Summer Camp!

Until recently I made it my business to 100% ignore the fact that I have crohn’s disease. With the exception of major surgery in 2011, I have experienced relatively good health, or as I call it “the new normal” of living with crohn’s. My health has been far from perfect, but for the most part it…

Another Busy Week, What To Eat?!

Monday I Ate: Breakfast: 2 hard boiled eggs with salt. Lunch: Salmon Dip with sugar snap peas, 2 pieces coconut chocolate layer bar Dinner: My last 4 chicken nuggets (the ones that were baked, frozen, then fried in pork lard) with leftover sweet potato fries. I popped them in the oven for 10 minutes at…

Le Menu

Thursday I Ate: Breakfast: Smoothie with banana, frozen mango, frozen blueberries, fresh blueberries, and juice of 1/2 orange. I normally add a splash of vanilla, but forgot this morning and I definitely missed it. Lunch: Leftover chicken nuggets with tomato-less marinara sauce and a carrot. The nuggets heated up just fine in the microwave, both the…

The Key to Living a Spontaneous Life with Chronic Illness Is…

…always having a plan! “But hold up a sec.” you say. “Plans are the opposite of spontaneity. Nay, the ruiner of spontaneity, it’s nemesis, antithesis. Plans are the kryptonite to the Superman that is spontaneity.” A great point I grant you, though I would have gone with a Harry Potter/Voldemort metaphor or perhaps Jon Snow/Scary Ice…

The Pursuit of the Perfect Chicken Nugget

For the first time in my life I experimented with a recipe of my own creation! I might be making some progress on my journey to make the perfect paleo chicken nugget. On Wednesday I zigged instead of zagging and went the ground chicken route instead of continuing with chicken tenders. In my mind, Wendy’s makes…

Cooking While Working and Roadtripping

Last week was my first big test to see how the elimination diet goes while adding work into the equation. I’ve had the luxury of time to plan and cook the first three weeks of the diet (I can’t believe it’s been that long already!) and now I really have to think ahead about what I am…
