Pumpkin Banana Protein Bread
I feel like fall is a recipe incubator. I've been feeling so good about all of these new creations and I hope you do too! Of course, it's pumpkin season so I had to make a pumpkin loaf. I ran out of almond flour, which was what I originally planned on using, but it came out even better than expected by subbing Kodiak Power Cakes. I ...

Mushroom, Spinach + Almond Cream Pasta

Cooking the Perfect Sweet Potato

A Day of Supplements
Hi, friends! So, I receive a lot of questions about the exact supplements I take every day for Gastroparesis and gut health. I figured I would just write a whole post on it because it's a bit detailed. Before reading this, please note that everyone is totally different and I do not intend to treat or cure.

The Long Story
Halfway through my freshman year of college, I became very ill. I was extremely nauseated every day, and couldn’t grasp what was making me feel so awful. If I ate, I was sick. If I didn’t eat, I was sick. After about a week I saw a doctor who believed I had a stomach ulcer and sent me home with some medication. After about a month ...
