Tonight is the first night of Chanukah and it’s traditional to eat lots of carbs in the form of jelly donuts and potato pancakes with apple sauce and sour cream. We are going to skip the donuts but I’m making potato pancakes and serving it with organic Greek yogurt and persimmon sauce! It’s a special occasion and persimmons are one of my favorite fruits that are only around for a few months. To make them last year round I make persimmon butter in my instant pot and freeze it. It’s so easy. I peel the persimmons but you don’t have to. Just slice them and throw them in the Instantpot with a cup of liquid. I used unsweetened cranberry juice. But you can use water or lemon juice. Set it to the stew setting and when it’s done purée it with a hand blender or transfer to a blender. That’s it. I know persimmons are not #lowfodmap or #lowcarb but I don’t care! When I had SIBO a year ago I had the intention to eat persimmons when the season came around again! And I am with zero problems or reactions. So cheers to life after SIBO and carb ups! #chanukah#paleo#treatyoself#persimmons#instantpot#lifeaftersibo#carbsforyouradrenals#carbup#carbcycling#healthytreat#noaddedsugar#latkes
Battle of the bloat!! Since you’ve been following, you know I’m forever battling this awful bloat! The great news is I’m finally beginning pinpoint which foods and/or drinks are leaving me looking like I’m 5 months preggo. Bloating is not uncommon, most people report experiencing this every so often. For me, it’s a daily battle. I have lists of foods that cause intolerances. As you see in this pic, one Bang Energy Drink 👉 immediate fluff. If you’ve been experiencing intolerances and not certain of the cause, here’s a few common culprits. Eliminate some of these foods/drinks and see if it helps:
1️⃣ Caffeinated drinks or fizzy drinks
2️⃣ Onions and garlic
3️⃣ Beans and legumes
4️⃣ Gluten and dairy
5️⃣ Sugar Alcohols and gum
6️⃣ Raw cruciferous vegetables
7️⃣ Apples (YES apples 🍎) .
9️⃣ Protein bars .
Being bloated is uncomfortable and not so cute. Next time you experience this review what you’ve just eaten. Chances are your body does not tolerate it well. For a full list of bloating foods ~ check out LOW-FODMAP diets .
You would how much I LOVE my Bulletproof Coffee... but sometimes I like to mix it up! .
So today I made my Bulletproof Matcha 🍵🙌🏼
I forgot how bloody good it was!! Matcha is an ugrade from your Green Tea.
With regular green tea, you brew the leaves in hot water and then throw them out afterwards. By contrast, matcha drinkers consume the whole leaf dissolved in the water along with all the green goodness they contain. Because of its concentrated form, matcha has up to 137 times the antioxidants and up to 10 times the nutritional content of regular green tea.
Sooo MATCHA GOODNESS 💚💚
If you're looking for a quality Organic Matcha brand, personally I love @matcha_maiden 🙌🏼
If you would like to know how I make it, I've put the recipe like in my bio 🤗 📸 @pinterest

'Choc ice' Christmas Trees... 🍉🌲Made with cacao, coconut oil & just a touch of maple syrup. I put in the freezer for an hour so the melon was super cold and the coconut oil firmed up... yummm. Super easy and the full tray was devoured in about 5 mins at the kids kindy party... 🎉 This is my entry to the #feedsantahealthy party hosted by these lovely feeds that the gorgeous @deliberatefare introduced me to.... thanks so much and what a fab idea @theflourishingpantry @mynutricalendar @meghnas_ ! .
On a side note, this is totally not fodmap friendly. Cutting these up, it was so hard not to sample any slithers... lucky I had my four year old to keep me in check! Watermelon is in three of the fodmap catagories and if you can somehow tolerate it you are very lucky indeed! 🍉 .

I always love finding new low carb, low fodmap, Paleoish products. Found this veggie milk on sale for $1.49 and only 2 carbs per 8 ounces. But also 2 grams of fiber which makes it zero net carbs. It’s made from pea protein, potato starch and cassava starch. It’s high in protein at 6 grams per cup. Not many more ingredients. It’s fortified with vitamins. Doesn’t taste that fabulous straight but works well in tea and a great smoothie base. And that’s mostly what I use my nut milks for. A great option for those who can’t do nuts or coconut. I’m sure the sweetened version is much tastier but that’s not my jam (pun intended). #lowcarb#keto#lowfodmap#veggiemilk#dairyfree#zeronetcarbs#fewingredients#milkinnovation#newproductjunkie
