Five Days Post Op

I’ve officially reached the “why in the hell would I do this to myself?” phase, and I’m not happy about it. I’m healing and dropping a little weight, but I’m exhausted from showering, walking and trying to drink 48 ounces of liquids each day. Yesterday I was struggling with cabin fever, so my boyfriend and Mom […]

The Post Mardi Gras, Good Grief I Need To Get It Together, Valentine’s Day Blues, Or Something Like That

I’ve sat down to blog several times lately, and I’ve been almost immediately distracted by other things. I wanted to share the details of my food intake during the week of Mardi Gras.

Grain-Free Sushi: A guest post from nutritionist Julie Daniluk

Nutritionist, author, and friend, Julie Daniluk from Toronto, provided one of her many wonderful grain-free, low-carb recipes to me, this one for sushi. My mom was Japanese and, boy, could she make some fabulous sushi. As we banish, or at least sharply minimize, rice exposure (due to presence of the wheat germ agglutinin protein, identical to that occurring in wheat, rye, and barley, highly-digestible amylopectin starch, and arsenic), a bit of delicious and nostalgic futomaki would indeed be a treat!

Julie has a moving and powerful personal story of recovery from severe gastrointestinal illness, a journey she accomplished by gaining a deep understanding of food.

This morning I’m feeling much better.

I still have some minor symptoms from the man cold. In the future, I’m just going to use OTC meds and tough these colds out.
