The Bakery That Saved My Life

Someone at my chiropractor’s office, back when I first found out about all of my food issues a few months ago, mentioned a bakery in downtown Roswell that cooked without any of the top 8 allergens including wheat/gluten, dairy, and eggs. Praise anything and everything, my life wasn’t over after all! Fast forward to this […]

I’m Allergic to…EVERYTHING?!

Whole30 Journey: The After

Well, I’ve still been avoiding eggs and nuts and things are starting to feel better. I’m still not sure exactly what caused my UC demon upset, but I’m at least going to wait to try eggs and nuts until my insides are back to 100%. Which also means I’ve been avoiding drinking. Result: all my […]

Whole30 Journey: Day 24 – ‘Paleo Corner’

Since Monday’s hell, I’ve been feeling way better. Things in my torso region are less grumbly and unpleasant, and my energy levels are through the roof.

Whole30 Journey: Day 1 – ‘I hate lettuce’

On the never ending trail to find the cure to Ulcerative Colitis, I’ve decided to try the Whole30. No, this is not a New Years’ resolution. As you’ll see, I did not start on Jan 1, so it doesn’t count. I am not one of those people. Anyway, I’m not going to bombard you with crazy facts […]
