Avocado Berry...pudding, nice cream, smoothie bowl...but whatever it is, it's soothing my very sore & irritated throat right now. It's that time for sore throats, coughs, colds and flu's so do whatever you need to do to take care of yourself. I took the day off to rest and despite having no energy I gotta stay hydrated and nourished so I quickly whipped this up and thought I'd share! β–«Frozen avocado
β–«Honey to taste
β–«Cashew butter β–«Frozen blueberries β–«Coconut water (just a bit to get pudding like consistency)
Use the icecream setting on the super duper @vitamix or blend until desired consistency .

In a few posts back you can find the grain free cookies I attempted to make and tonight I tried again and perfected this new creation!  These are definitely going up on the blog ( blog coming soon ). These are #glutenfree #grainfree #sugarfree #eggfree made with coconut flour, sunflower seeds and pecans in addition to a few other ingredients.  Pretty sure you'll love 'em!!! I'm really proud of myself as this was pretty much the first time I've baked without following a recipe and the turnout was great! .

enjoying with a nice cup o' tea in a pretty mug 🍘🍡 What's your favourite type of cookie?? Comment below πŸ‘‡

Hmm...what should I call these babies....☝ β–  Grain free
Gluten free β– Dairy free 
Egg free β– Sugar free 
Nut free .

Going grain free to heal the gut has been way better/easier than I expected it would be!  After a while it becomes mundane and it's a matter of changing and getting used to habits. Good habits that is! I'm more determined than ever and have been motivated to experiment in the kitchen. Today was my first go at it and not bad considering...
What makes it challenging is that I'm avoiding almonds and eggs temporarily and most grain free recipes contain these common allergens. Will make a batch or 2 more and when they're approved by moi will post to blog 😊🍘 ( blog coming soon I promise) .

TomatoeLESS meat sauce courtesy of @againstallgrain 'Nightshades' including tomatoes, potatoes,  eggplant, and peppers can be problematic foods for those of us with an autoimmune condition. Yes of course I miss my nonnas 'sugo' but honestly this is just as yummy and tastes very similar to tomatoe sauce (especially when you add some fatty bacon and/or grass fed minced beef). Since I'm off all grains right now I decided to pour this sauce over zoodles but the zucchini was too big to fit in my spiralizer πŸ˜„ so I made zucchini β›΅ instead .

Zucchini is one of my favourite veggies -especially since omitting the nightshade family

Zucchini chips:
πŸ’›Slice zucchini about an inch thick
πŸ’›Toss with EVOO,  ACV, and Himalayan salt πŸ’›Place in dehydrator and keep checking for desired consistency 
Thanks for the zucchini 😘@freyadt

After diagnosis 12 years ago I was clinical depressed and suffered from anxiety for many years thereafter.  I didn't know it then but stepping on my yoga mat was the stepping stone to my healing journey. YOGA always has been and always will be my ☾happy place☾. I've had convos with ppl before who argue that "yoga isn't for everyone' well I beg to differ that YOGA IS FOR EVERYONE & ANYONE. I guarantee you that stepping on that mat will bring you so much self healing and a new outlook on life because it's so much more than just a physical practice - it's a way of being! β€πŸ’›βœŒ - #lovefromayogateacher πŸ“· : @freyadt .

This beautiful orange colour appeared instantly as I poured hot water over chopped up tumeric & ginger .
.

When it cools I'll add coconut oil and some RAW honey as I don't want to destroy the active healthful organic substances that are inhibited by heat + a squeeze of fresh lemon
.
.

Helps keep me energized, alkalized and most importantly for me right now, hydrated

I'm unable to tolerate solid foods these days so I am on a strict liquid diet (smoothies, juices - and by juice I don't mean Tropicana OJ -  bone broth, lots of H20. Applesauce is pretty much the only "solid food" that works right now. I still do have somewhat of an appetite and can't help but think about my .... Fish & Veggie plantain "taco" (taco wrap made using plantain) πŸ‘…

Mmmmmm! How easy it is for us to take food on the table for granted. It's difficult yes to avoid eating food, but healing my #gut is what I'm focused on and when I put my mind to something there's no stopping me!! πŸ‘Š

About 12 yrs ago I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis (known as Inflammatory Bowel Disease) that can be debilitating and lead to further complications. Nearly 250 000 Canadians have been diagnosed with U C and if you're surprised, I'm not suprised that you are because many patients hide their diagnosis due to the "embarrassing" side effects. That was me the first few years of my diagnosis. Not anymore! I want to spread awareness because in order for changes to be made ppl need to be having discussions! 🌠

I attended my first yoga class shortly after getting discharged from the hospital. YOGA helped me get through the depression and anxiety that creeped up on me after my first admission to hospital. YOGA became something I really enjoyed that happened to be good for me. It allowed me to shift perspective on life and allowed me to realize the benefits of slowing down. YOGA soon became a regular part of my life and still is today. It's taught me an abundance more and I'm forever grateful 🌠

Today, I still do yoga and still have the disease. Both are an important part of my life. Both blessings, both a part of my journey here on earth. My diagnosis led me to yoga, and yoga has led me to ME! 🌠

Today, I went to see my GI and left a little sad but not angry. Frustrated but not angry. Motivated to keep fighting, hell yes! I may not have the energy to do yoga these days but everything I've learned on the mat can still be practiced off the mat. And that's why I ❀ the practice. It's helped me get through the struggles these past 12 years of my life and will always be a part of my life

I have Inflammatory Bowel Disease, it is an Auto Immune Disease, as of today, there is NO cure! Crohn's Disease and Colitis are the 2 different types of IBD. I have no idea what caused me to get sick, and neither do any other of the millions of people that get their diagnosis! It's also referred to an "Invisible Illness" as sometimes, many of us with IBD might not look sick! Tomorrow is World IBD Day, a time to raise awareness.... digestive diseases are not fun, or easy to discuss in public. I want to be the positive voice for others... to let you know there is hope, and help!!!! My Ileostomy has literally given me my life back! So even though I wear a"BAG" I live a pretty normal, awesome life! #worldibdday2017 #unitedwestand #crohnsandcolitis #ibdwontstopme #irunwithabag #strong #ostomylifestyleathlete

With my kids Birthdays and me working.....I totally spaced a pretty significant day in my life! On March 11, 2013 my life would be forever changed! I CHOSE to reverse my J Pouch  and be given a permanent Ileostomy!  Bye Bye Ulcerative Colitis Symptoms! BEST decision ever! I am one of over 800, 000 people that live a life with a bag! I have no diet restrictions now and take NO medication! I work full time, run, play with my kids......Knock on wood as I haven't been in a hospital in over 3 years either!!!! I live an incredible life! Part of my mission is to break the stigma that an Ostomy is a "bad thing" It's the one thing that literally gave me my life back!!!!!! #ibdwontstopme #crohnsandcoloitiswarrior #ulcerativecolitis #runner #baglady #healthy #happy #ostomylife #OLA

More new gear. #nike bottoms. Felt nice to #run in. 
Now I'm in needing new #trainers as my #saucony road trainers are feeling less supportive. Maybe next pay day... running every day for charity can be expensive!
4.29mile run. Day 64.

Wow #2016, you've been full of life changing moments, and tho the world has seen some terrible stuff this year, I've been pretty #blessed.
Happy to see our #wedding day, #ulcerativecolitis advocacy and my love of #coffee made the #2016bestnine . Shocked that 🐱#jojothecat is more popular than 🐢#babysam. We will just keep that to ourselves, poor pup. πŸ˜… 
Happy new year to all of you, thank you for all the love and support. Here's to 2017 being even greater. 🍾

These dogs do not do photos.
#Village late evening #run with the 2 best friends.
My #mile #split was a minute slower than recent...the fact that my #runbuddies #poo and #wee their way round the village might be why.
And yes...I do pick it up and bin it.

That's me! Thank you to @ccfa_  for sharing my story.

Three years ago, Jacklyn Green was diagnosed with #ulcerativecolitis. After learning about the disease, she expected the physical symptoms that became her new norm. However, what she wasn’t prepared for was the depression, self-esteem issues, sadness, and loneliness that accompanied her diagnosis.

Really missing my yoga practice 😒
#yogi #bliss 
I attempted a very slow&short yoga practice last week at home and it felt like I got smashed by a MAC truck shortly after. My body's not ready. I tend to push myself too damn hard and mind,body,soul suffers. 
Listening to our bodies is crucial to overall heath and wellbeing. I'm in rest and heal mode right now and I'm accepting that. Hell ya, I miss my life but I'll jump back up soon πŸ€— (my new fave EMOJI)

🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞 6 hrs later and I'm all done my Natural Therapy. Wow! Night and day from my hospital visits to this experience. Such compassionate, gentle and caring practitioners AND the tape for the IV was amazing! No pain no marks no redness! Yes, it's very exciting πŸ˜„

Healthy salad for lunch, accompanied by articles and information regarding my protocol, beautiful view, surrounded by plants in the clinic. The 6 hours were nothing but comfortable. 
12 years later and I'm still at this! Lesson learned....Question your diagnosis, study your disease/condition inside out and be your own doctor. Don't just accept that prescription and get it filled. Research, research, research! Consider alternate natural medicine. Look at all your options and make the best informed decision you possibly can.

M I N D  VS  B O D Y

Been to Naturopaths,  been to Homeopaths,  been to Chiropractors,  been to Nutritionists, GOD only knows I've been to countless doctors,  been to workshops, been to seminars,  been to therapy, been  eating healthy, been on meds, been exhausted, been weak, been in pain, been judged, been let go of jobs, but most importantly, I've BEEN fighting!! And waking me up at 2 am isn't gonna scare me off that easily. It's when I start waking up in the middle of the night with symptoms that I start to panic, BUT I've been here many times before and I've learned from it and become a better person because of it and that will never change. 
My body might be giving up on me right now, but my mind isn't and I pray to God every damn day to give me the strength to keep going. 
The only thing we can do in life is wipe those tears away and focus on the present & positive β˜ΊπŸ’‹πŸ’š #ibdwontstopme πŸ’ͺ#gonnatryandgetsomesleep πŸ˜ͺ

NOVEMBER is #chronsandcolitisawareness month!!
πŸ’© (I knew they had this emoji on here for a reason 😝😁) I'm sure at least 1 person you know suffers from IBD and you don't even know about it. That might be because of the stigma surrounding BOWEL talk! Well i'm sure you've guesed by now that I'm not embarrassed whatsoever, so ask me anything and I'm happy to share and spread my knowledge surrounding this topic so dear to my heart. 
I've said, and I'll always say it...I'm a better person because of it and my eyes have been opened to the things and ppl in my life that truly matter! And I'm forever grateful πŸ˜‡β€ #spreadingawareness #ibdwontstopme #stopthestigma
