4 weeks in the psoriasis #diet
Still have a long way to go but I'm now so convinced that I'm closer than I have ever been in the 8 years that I have psoriasis. Mentally that is, im ready for anything. Ready to tackle this battle and prove that #foodasmedicine is real.
I am determined to work towards my goal. At times i feel less motivated then others but I keep on going. I want this to work and I am willing to do whatever to beat this

Help 🙈‼️I have the feeling that I eat too much fruit is that possible? Because it is natural sugar, anyone has experience in that or on the contrary; anyone that healed though a high fruit & normal amount of veggies? 😄🙈 it's been 4 weeks in the diet and i'm starting to get scared that i will not show progress... I keep on seeing all this amazing ppl with great progress but I'm not seeing anything with me. Am i being impacient or is this cuz i eat quite the amount of fruit? 😄🙈 plz help 🙏🏼
Elimination diet day 10: one third of the way through until I begin reintroducing foods. I'm down five pounds of what I'm sure is water weight. I have a distinct feeling of being less bloated. I didn't know I was bloated but I can feel the difference now. Last night I had one of the Paleo Passion Pops I bought this weekend. It was pretty good except the texture issue of having shredded coconut in the popsicle. I just didn't expect that much chewing,lol. Had a smoothie and watermelon in the morning and one of the mason jar salads I prepped Monday for lunch. It was much better today and I'm looking forward to my salad tomorrow. My afternoon snack was carrots and roasted garlic hummus. For dinner I made a Lebanese lentil salad and garlic onion chicken sausage. It really makes me a proud mom when I see my kid woofing down a dinner like this one that tastes so healthy and earthy. I want her to grow up liking and choosing to eat real food so she doesn't have to struggle with healthy choices like I have in my life. #eliminationdiet#psoriasisdiet#glutenfree#nightshadefree#psoriaticarthritis#scalppsoriasis#eatyourselfhealthy#icandoit
#scalppsoriasis is so annoying! .
- I love to wear black but, that means brushing down my shoulders every minute.
- when sleeping over at my boyfriends, I'm embarrassed by the scales I leave behind 😔
- around my desk at work, next to my bed, in my car - I often wear hats and beanies in winter to cover it
- i NEVER wear my hair up, and if I have to for sports i make a low messy ponytail that covers most of it.
- I hate people scratching my head as a "massage" thing.
- I feel conscious whenever the top of my head is faced to someone like with tying my shoes or even looking at a menu in a restaurant.
- i cover my ears and side of my face with my hair
- i barely go to the hairdressers but when i do i give them a warning in the beginning, explain what it is and that its not dandruff.
- i often wish I could wear a burka too 👳🏾🙈
- I wash with special shampoos and ointments and hair-masks.
Do you know the feeling? or have good tips to share? Plz comment below 🙏🏼❤️
In today's installment of Things That Aren't Breakfast I Eat At Breakfast Time, I've got a huge plate of zoodles topped with a random, fridge/freezer clearing deconstructed meat sauce. Here's your daily reminder that breakfast doesn't have to include sweets, carbs, or eggs to be a good breakfast. It's just the food you eat first in the morning.
The sautéed "sauce" 🍝 a pound of ground turkey / garlic + onions / a box of chopped shiitake mushrooms / the rest of a bag of frozen broccoli rabe. Seasoned with salt / pepper / turmeric / coconut aminos / scallions / fresh basil / capers.
Nightshade-free pork taco salad: Leftover plain pulled pork from my previous evening meal reheated with its rendered fat--seasoned with a combination of cinnamon, oregano, onion powder, ground ginger, and a ton of turmeric--topping an iceberg salad mix with chopped cucumbers, and black olives tossed in an ACV and balsamic vinaigrette, accented with avocado and another helping of halved black olives. 🔹
So scrumptious, and surprisingly able to satisfy an aching for spice. Honestly one of the tastiest taco salads I've thrown together. This combination could absolutely change my ability to continue to adhere to a way of eating that works to my advantage. #dinner#tacos#salad#pork#nightshadefree#aipdiet#eliminationdiet
Elimination diet day 9: I kind of trudged through today. It's day four without caffeine and I really felt the effects since I was up late last night. I had a smoothie for breakfast and some clementines for a snack before lunch. The staff got free Taste Unlimited lunch boxes for lunch. I ate my mason jar salad but found it hard to enjoy. I wanted chips sooooo bad. It passed. My afternoon snack was carrots and roasted garlic hummus. For dinner I made fish taco lettuce wraps. The fish was seasoned with cumin, coriander, garlic powder and onion powder. I topped them with the nightshade free mango salsa I made last night. They turned out pretty great! I didn't think it would be very filling so I also made some salt free canned green beans. I have to prep some smoothies and cut up a small watermelon tonight. I hope to get through it fast so I can get to bed early and feel more energetic tomorrow. #eliminationdiet#psoriasisdiet#psoriaticarthritis#scalppsoriasis#eatyourselfhealthy#icandoit#nightshadefree
Backyard cookout last night with our church small group! I brought two @traderjoes #nightshadefree#grassfed hot dogs, which were cooked in foil on the grill to prevent cross-contamination. I also brought a big salad to share with everyone. Then, for me, I brought @sirkensingtons mustard for dipping, @farmhouseculture garlic dill pickle kraut, and some @artisantropic cassava strips. Delicious food & great time with friends. #aipreintro#aipreintroduction#paleo
- #hemp milk
- #sumac powder (= berry with one of the most antioxidants)
When pooring the sumac powder, accidentally waaay too much fell into the blender haha so the juice had quite a strong (bit salty) taste to it 🤣🙈🙈
🤗cuz of that I drank this for health, not so much for deliciousness haha.
Elimination diet pasta + creamy red sauce dinner😍 #nogluten#notomatoes#nodairy 🚫🍞🍅🥛...made with roasted organic red peppers, onion, garlic, basil, oregano, salt + pepper and brown rice/quinoa pasta.🌶💗✌
I am all about easy meals!
Had a coupon for $1.50 off Simple Truth organic roasted chicken from Soopers, love the Siete tortillas and Wholy Guacamole, already had diced onions. Just had to cook the riced cauliflower with onions, celery, kale, and cilantro, and plate it! Real, whole foods for a quick and easy meal!
Sautee diced onions and celery in avocado oil.
Add shredded kale and cilantro and stir until wilted.
Add riced cauliflower and more avocado oil as needed to keep from sticking. Sprinkle with sea salt and garlic powder. Stir while cooking until cauliflower is cooked through.
💚 I'm starting my 4th week this week.
Because I made 'the switch' it's not that hard to say no. I have my boyfriend eating pasta🍝, pizza🍕, chocolates🍫, fries🍟, candy🍬 and meat🍔 next to me and i'm perfectly fine eating my veggies and fruits. 🐰🌿
💚ALWAYS REMEMBER- Every successful long journey starts with a single step. So, don’t get frightened by so many restrictions, just start with it one day and keep to it. Give your treatment plan at least 6weeks time to show some progress.
💚THE FIRST WEEKS will be the hardest since you're doing all the effort and you're not showing result or even worsening but that's the toxins leaving the body. It's normal. THAT's the point you need to prove yourself how strong you are and keep going.
💚AROUND WEEK 6 you would start getting some results, then you will feel amazingly motivated and any restrictions in diet or lifestyle would not be that much effort compared to your skin disease, who would otherwise take over your entire life.
💚I know that it is easier said than done, but if i can do it, so can you! Many others before us did it and ALL got benefit out of it. .
Keep going, be strong, we're for one another, go warriors! 💪🏽🌟🌿
Plaice rolls stuffed with a mix of asparagus, garlic, parsley, basil capers and a bit of polenta to make it all less runny. Baked in the oven with courgettes, carrots and white wine then topped the rolls w lemon zest and more basil and parsley
So we just bought a lovely pork loin...and it was much too warm to fire up the oven! What's a girl to do? Cut it into beautiful 1 inch chops and barbecue them! I found a great recipe by @dadcooksdinner that was fast, simple, and super duper tasty. The key was brining the chops before grilling them! Perfect! The glaze is simple and tasty. To make it aip compliant simply omit the black pepper. I have a herbs de Provence mix of thyme, savoury and lavender that I used instead of straight thyme. The only thing I would do differently next time would be cook them a little less. They only needed 3 minutes each side, but we cooked them 6 on the first side (3 min each direction.... unfortunately the chops are showing the other cooked side... so the lovely crosshatch pattern didn't get portrayed! But that didn't change the taste 😉)
For accompaniments, I sautéed some mushrooms, bok choy and asparagus in coconut oil. As well, I made a "mash" with steamed turnip and parsnip, that I then blended with 2 tbsp of bone broth, 1 tbsp coconut milk, 1 tbsp coconut oil, a little smoked salt and onion powder. It was a great meal!
