Tired of bloating, gas, abdominal pain or bowel trouble?
Reoccurring digestive issues can really cramp your style.
So you look to your doctor for help but he tells you it’s “all in your head” (wait…I thought it was my gut?). He labels you with a confusing acronym (IBS, IBD, SIBO) and sends you out the door.
Desperate for relief, you turn to the natural community. You sign up for an enormous amount of supplements, enzymes, cleansing treatments and spend all your money on whatever promises to heal you.
But what if you try it all and you STILL aren’t better? Continue reading
Every. Single. Year.
It’s not like I don’t know February is coming. But somehow I always find myself panicking before that first Sunday. Because when the Ultimate Game Day is just around the corner, only one serious question remains.
What will we eat?
Priorities, people. Priorities. When there are pigskin fans in your home, there’s only one thing that makes or breaks the game.
Food. And beer. And a working TV. And those comic relief commercial breaks.
Ok, ok. But back to food. Continue reading
My favorite part about summer? The gas grill. Throw on just about any meal, toss in a few sides and you’ve got yourself a winner.
Officially on my Make-It-Again List, this recipe gets all three stamps of approval.
That’s right. This fish dish is gluten free, dairy free, and low fodmap! Not to mention full of omega 3’s, clean ingredients, and no sugar added! The combination of jalapenos, Cajun seasoning, and fresh pineapple gives it the perfect balance between sweet and spicy.
This is a great way to enjoy a healthy dinner today without the digestive pain tomorrow!
But enough about that. On to the important stuff. Continue reading
Looking for a healthy dish to pass this weekend? Don’t worry. I’ve got you covered.
Sweet, tangy, and so healthy I don’t even feel bad eating this with tortilla chips.
Because really, I’m just looking for any good excuse to eat chips.
Quickly throw these ingredients together for a delicious side dish. My husband (who isn’t a huge fan of beans) will eat this by the bowl full! It marinates in the refrigerator overnight, making it an easy dish to pass at your summer Barbecue!
This dish is naturally gluten free. Which just adds to the awesome. Continue reading
If there’s one question that makes me cringe inside, it’s the one that awaits me at the end of every day.
What’s for dinner?
Ugh. Another reminder that I forgot to plan. Again.
It’s not like I don’t know it’s coming. We literally eat every day. So why does the task of putting together a plateful of meals feel like nails on the chalkboard of my food soul?
Why is meal planning so dang hard? Continue reading
Want a fabulous way to start your day? A quick breakfast that leaves your taste buds happy and you full of energy?
Oatmeal. You know…those little flakes collecting dust in your pantry?
This breakfast is classic but I just HAD to share this recipe. Watching my husband eat this concoction lately inspired me. I tried this combo at work and was all smiles. I may have greeted those around me with, “Good morning!” and then with added gumption, “I’m really enjoying my oatmeal!!” Awkward. Just awkward.
So in light of not scaring my co-workers, I decided to share my enthusiasm with you all instead! Be glad. Be very glad. Continue reading
Cold and flu giving you the sniffles? Too exhausted and achy to make dinner? Try this simple and easy make-it-while-you-nap recipe! Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup simmering in the slow-cooker might just be what you need to get back on your feet.
