Thanksgiving tricks and treats

My family isn’t quite down with this AIP-ish thing I got goin on. They are somewhat supportive of my food choices/habits, depending on who I’m speaking about, and just so long as they don’t have to eat it (Le Boyfriend excluded). So when the menu for Thanksgiving was up in the air, I quickly volunteered to bring an item. I …

No, is still an answer.

I suppose ‘No’ is an answer, right? That seems to be what I have been hearing from doctors lately when I have been trying to figure out the root cause of my stomach pain. No, you don’t have this. No, you don’t have that. I’m not lactose intolerant, I don’t have SIBO, when I would have bet money that I …

Plate lickin’ good

Le Boyfriend licked his plate after dinner. No, that’s no metaphor folks. He legit licked it, dinner was that good. Granted, I thought it was quite good myself, but I’m not sure I’d go there. Now what did I make you ask? I made an adaptation of ACleanPlates Bacon Chicken Alfredo. I may have also made a version of this …

An AIPish life for me..?

Two weeks in to this AIPish journey and it’s going… Ok? At the start I didn’t think that would be the case, I had anticipated some major mishaps, meltdowns and disasters. But aside from one night where everything that could go wrong did (entire jar of Italian spices into the mushrooms? Sure!) it’s been good. Now normally I am a …

Changes, part deux

This whole diet change seems so big, I’m making it it’s own post. I think it needs that. I’ve known about the AutoImmune Protocol (AIP) Paleo diet for awhile now. I first read about it earlier this year, read how many foods were eliminated on top of regular paleo and said No. Way. Ever. Foods also eliminated were ALL nuts …

#NailedIt

I had intended to write a post on what my day should have been. I should have been at six flags with work, but alas, I’m at home with day 3 of a migraine. Six flags and migraines don’t mix :/. So instead I decided I’d write about the yummy peanut butter chocolate chip pancakes I made myself this morning …

Punching and pizza

Muay Thai kicked my ass last night. And by Muay Thai I mean my wonderful and sweet boyfriend, who also happens to be 6’3″, jussst a bit bigger than me (I’m 5’3″) In the world of a martial arts class, that’s one lopsided partner matchup! Usually in class we do drills with a partner who holds pads for the punching/kicking …

Maine(ly) awesome

Ogunquit, beautiful Ogunquit, Maine. My destination last weekend for my birthday weekend my boyfriend booked for me. We’ve been there plenty and love it, but it was the first time this year. It was also the first time since going gluten free, so I had to do some restaurant research (ugh) before going out to dinner. We tried 3 restaurants …

Gluten gluten everywhere

I haven’t posted in awhile, I’m slacking, I know. But I will be honest, I’ve been struggling. Since my relapse I had to stop working out, now that I am able to again, I have to start at the beginning. I know, I should be happy I can move, punch, lift, run, but it’s frustrating to have made progress, then …
