Love all this green!!!! I brought copies of Paleo Principles to the market today to give to some friends, which was SO MUCH FUN!!! It’s still half off on Amazon: https://www.thepaleomom.com/go/paleo-principles (live link in profile). •
My Farmers Market Haul this week: 4 dozen eggs from pastured hens, 2 bags of tatsoi, 3 bags of lettuce (woohoo! My favorite veggie!), a giant mound of green beans (because they’re the most perfect green beans you’ve ever seen!), purple sweet potatoes, sweet peppers, 2 bags of spinach, and rainbow carrots. I also came home with a beautiful pair of earrings. I bartered this week with my book, so my haul was unusually cheap! Lol! @fryfarm @frontfieldfarm @mercierorchards
MHE is an orphan disease and gets absolutely zero funding from the government for research. Research is imperative when you have a rare disease as it could not only improve the quality of life for those suffering but potentially prevent the suffering of those who will be born with MHE in the future. Recently it was announced that clinical trials will begin for a drug that could prevent or slow the growth of tumors for children who are affected with the mutation. Although I am too old to be helped by this drug, this is a medical breakthrough that will change the lives of everyone affected as a possible treatment can open the door to possibilities we once thought were never going to happen. I myself, and I know I am not alone in this sentiment, have always settled on never having biological kids as I never wanted to pass this on in the family, but a possible treatment could lead to a possible cure, and that can only be made possible by continuing to research this disease. I am truly touched by the outpouring of support you all have shown throughout the week, and I am so honored that strangers have donated towards the MHE Research Foundation through my posts; by supporting my posts and story, you are helping us find a treatment and cure; and for that, I know I speak on behalf of the entire MHE community when I say we are eternally grateful for.
Doctors, Chiropractors, Nurse Practitioners and every day people are blown away by the results they are getting! If you suffer from aches & pains or any other health concerns let me know if you want more information on this all natural supplement. Use daily! Consistency is key!!!
Happiness is being silly and dancing and being with my mini and rooting for my alma mater! Be free to be you...I’m certainly relishing in the pure joy of movement today!
MOVEMENT IS MEDICINE
HAFTASONU KAHVALTISI 🌼❤️ - Bol renklisinden bir haftasonu kahvalti sofrasi. Bugun yumurtayi esimin sevdigini hatirlayarak tatli patatesli ve keci peynirli omlet seklinde yaptim. Patatesleri dogal antibiyotik ve antioksidan olan mor sogan ile hindistan cevizi yaginda yumusuncayincaya kadar kavurdum (tatli patates cok cabuk yumusuyor) icine tuz, biber ve bir cay kasigi kadar da zerdecal ekledim. Pisince uzerine cirpilmis yumurtalari ekledim. Boyle guzel bir tabak oldu. Aslinda maydanozlari da dograyip karistiracaktim ama gorsel olarak karistirmamak icin limonla tabak yanina koydum. Yaninda da bir koca tabak kirmizi pancarli, bebek ispanak ve rokali, avocadolu ve zeytinli tipik karisik kahvalti salatami da ekledim. Benim icin super doyurucu bir kahvalti oldu. Bizimkiler yanina bir dilim eksi mayali avocado ve muzlu tost yedi. Oglum patates sevmedigi icin mirin kirin etti ama kafaya taktim bundan sonra onu aliskanliklarini degistirmek adina daha fazla sayida sebze ile tanistiracagim. Inadini da kiracagim. Zira hatirliyorum da bir zamanlar Avocado'ya da mirin kirin ediyordu ama simdi bayila bayila yiyor.. Ayni sekilde brokoli de oyle. Simdi sira havuc ve pancarda 🙃😜😇🤔🌟
My breakfast table for the weekend- I loooveee colorful tables with variety of vegetables and healthy fats. This is my style of breakfast ❤️🙏🌼 "No gluten, no sugar, no dairy" (except for the small pieces of goat cheese for the egg). Omelette with sautéed purple onion and sweet potatoes and turmeric. I also made a big bowl of breakfast salad with baby spinach and arugula, red beets (grated), avocado, cucumber and black olives, lemon and olive oil..! It is a very satisfying breakfast for me with lovely colors and nutrients.

I began the day feeling very well. Got up, excited to start the day. Walked several miles enjoying the cool morning. But by the end of the walk I could tell my body was wearing down a bit. It’s challenging to be an active person who loves exercising and working the body and then to have health ailments which makes everything harder. Recently the candida die off has started to effect my Interstitial Cystitis which prompted me to see if there was any new research bringing brought about the disease. I tend to check this about once a month anyway and you would think after five years reading the words “chronic pain” would get easier to choke down but in fact it only gets harder. I hate the word chronic “persisting for a long time or constantly recurring.. persistent, long-standing, long-term; incurable; immedicable”. And then as I continued to look through the articles I read “because the symptoms are always present, patients need to develop coping skills to deal with them.” I don’t think anyone should have to go through life developing “coping skills” to “deal with” their symptoms. I know too many people who are living life this way. Family and friends who deal with trying to understand their bodies so they can feel better on a daily basis. My mom is currently in a fibromyalgia flair because the weather keeps changing and gaining weight for no apparent reason. My cousin has terrible headaches which leave her sick in bed and at times unable to function. Friends who have Chrohn’s, Lupus, Arthritis, Diabetes, Cystic Fibrosis... the list goes on and on. Why is managing our conditions our only option? Why isn’t curing an option? Science has come so far but yet we are still so much in the dark when it comes to understanding our own bodies. We live in a world where a lot of money is made from the sick... Can’t all that money be used to finding the answers? Can’t it be used to stop people from suffering? There needs to be less “managing” and more “curing”. Let’s work towards “Chronic” being removed from the medical dictionary for no one should suffer with the pain of having something incurable. #patientadvocate#interstitialcystitis#chronicillness

National Psoriasis Meet Up I'm devastated I didn't get to attend everything but what I did get to see hear was quite good lots of talk and information on mental health and psoriasis and also financial advice and entitlements. What really stood out was 75,000 people in Ireland have psoriasis and yet the turn out was quite small and mainly older people 🤔 The people I'm met and talked to were super lovely and all very interested in my Costenyx injections plus I got some free samples for me, my mam who has eczema and my dad who has dermatitis from chemotherapy.
PSA: I would like to point out something. Many people think that diet and exercise helps type one diabetics just like type two diabetics. Don't get me wrong, IT DOES. But exercising as a type one diabetic is HARD. No matter what I do, I always go low while exercising, followed by uncontrollable spiking. And I'm eating low carb too (which by the way, hasn't affected my blood sugars positively at all). I can never exercise without dropping low (sometimes to dangerous levels), then spiking horribly. If I didn't work out today, I could have had steady blood sugars. But because of my workout, my blood sugars are likely going to be messed up for the rest of the day. For me, and many other people, exercise does NOT help with their control. Isn't it funny how people criticize diabetics for "not exercising enough" or whatever, then criticize them for "having bad control?" I get where they're coming from, but it's so much more complex than that. Don't get me wrong, a healthy lifestyle is vital for EVERYONE (obviously), including type one diabetics. But compared to normal people, it's hard for diabetics to work out. There have been many times where I had to stop ten minutes into a workout because I was dropping too fast. Type one diabetics gotta get your basals exactly right, their dosage and ratios, monitor/check your bg every five minutes, etc, in order to exercise. (Side note: my body's response to exercise change in phases. For several weeks I could have perfect blood sugars while exercising, but for the rest of the time exercise just screws up everything. Weird, huh?) #typeonediabetes#stereotypes#diabetic#diabetes#bloodsugar#hypoglycemia#dexcom#exercise#workout#autoimmunedisease#invisibleillness#awareness#t1d
Well this is what my weekend vacation ended up being 😖 t1d doesn't mess around. This is real life. Fever and body aches made me check for ketones. I tested positive for ketones several times, couldn't get my blood sugar down below 190 before it would go back up to 250 and even 350 last night. They are giving me fluids and insulin "as needed". I've only had one finger test by them so far and I can't eat or take my own insulin. I hate this. Any type 1's have suggestions on bg control in the hospital in case I have to stay?
I just got here and on an IV, blood drawn, etc. But I hate having no control of my own. They are nice and seemed well informed but if you're anything like me, you have to have the reigns when it comes to control of your t1d 😎 if it wasn't for the stupid fever and ketones I would conquer this myself. Good vibes please 💙
More pumpkin recipes to satisfy our love for autumn flavors. Pumpkin spice pancakes with bananas and maple salted walnuts. Soooo yum!!!
Leftover pumpkin non dairy milk mixture was used to make a pumpkin spice latte. ☕️☕️🍁🍂🍂🍁🍁🍁
- 3/4 cup almond flour
- 3/4 cup brown rice flour
- 1/4 cup ground flax seed
- 2 tbs tapioca or arrowroot flour
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon - 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1/8 tsp ground cloves
- 1/4 tsp ground ginger - 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 2 tbs coconut sugar
- pinch of salt
- 1/2 cup pumpkin purée - 1 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl - Blend milk with pumpkin purée.
- I didn't have ground ginger. I used fresh ginger and put it in the blender with the milk and pumpkin purée and blended until smooth. - Pour milk mixture over dry mix and whisk until everything is fully incorporated. - Let the batter rest at least for 10 min
- Heat a griddle or non stick skillet over low medium heat and pour 1/4 cup of the batter on the skillet. - Flip it over when bubbles start forming and the edge around pancake doesn't look raw. Spatula would slide under easily. - Cook other side for a few more minutes until golden. - Serve with maple syrup, bananas, walnuts or any other topping. - Enjoy!!!
Meal planning. My Jennifer's Way Kitchen cookbook came this week, and it is loaded with recipes made with ingredients I can use. It's a gorgeous, useful cookbook with more than just recipes. She gets it. 100% gets it. This is the most refreshing thing I've read since my diagnosis a few years ago, and the most relatable to my personal health journey. I can't put it down, or stop nodding my head! @jesposito please keep writing and creating! ❤️#jenniferswaykitchen#jenniferswaybakery#celiac#celiacdisease#autoimmunedisease#jerf#glutenfree#foodismedicine

Phases. Hormones. Intuitive eating. Call it what you want. This is currently one of my favs: roasted cauli + red onions seasoned with cumin, turmeric, coriander, s+p. Topped with hummus. 💥 #eatseasonally#hormones#intuitiveeating
Who gets mad when they don’t get a proper breakfast? 🙋
While intermittent fasting is very popular, some of us that have thyroid problems or adrenal issues need to maintain a balanced blood sugar levels. Low blood sugar levels put an unnecessary stress on your body which you definitely dont want!
Cauliflower soup is our absolute favorite during this time of the year! Try this recipe that @autoimmunepaleo has put together. Sounds delicious!

RECIPE BELOW // Celeriac Leek Soup⠀
Are you a celeriac fan? It's an awesome fall veggie, especially since it is low in starch and FODMAPs. It tastes kind of like a cross between a potato and celery and cooks much faster than other root vegetables. ⠀
When you're craving a creamy potato-leek soup, this will hit the spot!⠀
Make a bowl, post a pic, and tag us (@autoimmunepaleo). We'll repost our favorite photo!⠀
🌿 4 slices sugar-free, pastured bacon⠀
🌿 2 leeks, ends removed and sliced thinly⠀
🌿 3 cloves garlic, minced⠀
🌿 1-inch piece ginger, minced⠀
🌿 4 cups bone broth⠀
🌿 2 pounds celeriac, peeled and cut into 1 ½ inch chunks⠀
🌿 1 tablespoon apple-cider vinegar⠀
🌿 ½ teaspoon salt⠀
🌿 A few sprigs of parsley⠀
👉 Heat a heavy-bottomed pot on medium heat; when it is ready, cook the bacon until crispy, turning a couple times. Remove the bacon to cool and leave the fat in the bottom of the pan.⠀
👉 Add the leeks and cook for a few minutes, stirring. Add the garlic and ginger and cook for another couple of minutes. Add the broth, celeriac, apple-cider vinegar and salt and bring to a boil. Turn down to a simmer, cover, and cook for 15 minutes, or until celeriac is soft.⠀
👉 While the soup is cooking, crumble the bacon.⠀
Transfer to a blender and process until desired consistency is reached, adding more bone broth if needed.⠀
👉 Serve with parsley and crumbled bacon on top.⠀

An excerpt from my “Getting Your Groove Back” blog post. I talk about my personal lowest point and how I climbed out of it 🖤.⠀
Check it out if you are feeling like you need a nudge of encouragement to get your groove back (link in bio).
Hi, I am Lana and I am struggling to restart my Paleo lifestyle. I need to do it to make my gut healthy, in order to reverse my autoimmune hypothyroidism.
I have never been on a diet before February 2017. Now I know :
1) I want sugar when I stressed
2) I want chocolate when I bored
3) Smell of toast derails my morning.
I have 4 kids, who eat bread, I nurse baby at night and, therefore, crave carbs during the day.
I am gaining weight and a lot of my symptoms came back after I dropped Paleo.
What I did to improve situation :
-did batch cooking last Sunday - started to listen to @phoenix.helix podcast "How to stick to it"
What I plan to do:
1) Make Paleo desert
2) Do a batch cooking again
3) Quit grains starting today
4) Research techniques on eating discipline.
What do you recommend, friends?
We don't eat junk food, but kids ' food tempts me a lot.
YUM. We accidentally ordered a Sun Basket meal that I couldn't eat, miso soup with ramen noodles and tofu. We ditched the tofu, and instead of the ramen noodles I added zucchini noodles to the mix. All the other ingredients were fine, and it was incredibly flavorful! Spicy, warming, and all around really good.
Living life as if the glass is half full (even though mine only has had water in it today 🤣). Tons of food vendors + a gorgeous fall day here in #portlandmaine means a perfect day for @harvestontheharbor. 😍 Tried fudge with kelp in it, sampled some absolutely delicious #vegan /#glutenfree basil dressing while spending time with #family and enjoying beautiful #Maine weather... #PrimaryFood (and actual food) at its finest ✌🏻 What can you do to nourish yourself today (that doesn't involve food?) Share with me! 💜
