Ok, so who all out there suffers from endometriosis?? 🙋🏼 It freaking blows, right?! In my experience, my gynos have always presented two options: birth control or surgery, with no mention of trying a more holistic approach first. When I've asked if dietary changes or alternative therapies such as acupuncture might make a dent, the answer has always been a resounding no. I was all 🙉 + started doing my own research. I began chatting with other women affected by endo + comparing notes. I set out on a mission to get to know my body as well as I possibly could - blood tests, hormone panels, urine samples, genetic testing, etc. I began tracking my cycle with a period app called Life (although now I'm hooked on MyFLO). I started experimenting with different things (blog post coming soon) + through tracking my cycle + logging my food (@fitbook is my go-to food log), I noticed that my periods were much more brutal when I consumed more caffeine or sugar than usual in the days leading up to red tide. When I cut those things out entirely, especially a week before my period, I'm practically pain-free. 😱 Which is why I replaced my beloved matcha latte with a little herbal ghee tea. I felt as though a selfie of me laughing was the only possible way to adequately convey how awesome this revelation has been. 🤷🏼♀️ Give it a try! How I did this morning's ghee tea👇🏼 #savoringtheflavoring •
1. Blended 8 oz brewed tea (I used an organic wild berry herbal tea for this one) + 1 tbsp MCT oil + 1 tbsp vanilla bean ghee + a scoop of collagen protein + a splash of coconut milk until frothy as a motha. Poured it over ice + voila!👌🏼🤤

This was a new flavor for last night's market, sort of like a Twix bar but without that type of cookie and a touch more salt. 📸: Chocolate Salted Caramel.
The caramel was homemade and delicious; a huge step towards making Salted Caramel Creme macarons in the future! Who is excited!? #macarons#blue#chocolatedrizzle#caramel
What's your favorite Mom meal? The only thing I remember my Mom ever consistently feeding us was Tuna Noodle Casserole (which I love) but the first time I recreated it and realized all the junk that was in it, I haven't made it since! This is penne tossed with @sweetbasilneedham pesto sauce and tuna canned in oil (and pesto). Not to mention, the bag of freshly shaved parmesan cheese was the best thing I've bought in weeks. Thanks to @food52 for this grown-up Tuna Noodle Casserole inspiration

I've learned that the most important key to weight loss is to never let yourself become hungry and desperate (lol true for many areas of life, actually...new topic: losing weight is like dating...😉) But I digress, keep yourself full with healthy foods and pre-plan to stay balanced so that you can continue to make positive choices. These ARE in fact universal laws that apply to everything...weight loss, relationships, money, work....💫🙏 #mindfuleating#stayaheadofthegame#BZen
