Scroll on down to the recipe below or read about why- for now- I’m full steam ahead on the gluten/dairy free train….
None of us have been left untouched- 2020 has brought change, challenge and the call for creativity and compassion to us all. After months of mounting stress from sudden loss of income, becoming caretaker to a loved one living with an emergent illness, falling out of my own health and wellness routine and a couple years of ongoing/emerging health symptoms of my own- I was diagnosed with Endometriosis. As the light shifts, and the season turns- I am also slowing down and listening to my body in a deeper way.
I am grateful for the ways that my life journey and my studies in mind/body disciplines have resourced me to face this next moment on my journey of empowered wellness- and to the amazing women, doctors, and holistic health/wellness visionaries who are educating, supporting and guiding me along the way.
Changing my diet and committing to regular (safe!) exercise have been two of the most transformative things I have done to support relief from the often debilitating pain and fatigue that women, and anyone living with chronic inflammatory conditions, often experience. Gut health, and creating a healthy microbiome is not just important for the health issues I'm facing, it's relevant to all of us! I'm following a simple nutrition & fitness routine, getting a ton of support from an amazing community and supporting others in doing the same, more info here…
