Tater tot casserole with green beans πŸ’š. On the side is corn on the cob, side salad with shredded almonds, carrots, red cabbage, lettuce, a little bit of dressing. Inside the casserole is cream of mushroom mixing with green beans grass-fed beef a little bit of cheese,salt and pepper, celery salt, oregano seasoning salt, a pinch of garlic salt, and tater tots to top it off. It took 40 minutes at 400Β°. I wanted one of my favorite dish but in small portion and more veggies. For the last week of summer it was a perfect delicious dish for the family. The plus side is that there's always leftovers when you make a big dish of it. #delicious #tatortot #tatortotcasserole #yum #yummyintummy #buildaladder #Simonandmartina #casserole #corn #salad #veggies #cheese #homecookedmeal #meals #familytable #dinner #healthyfood #smallportions #fibrodiet #eathappy #foodporn #instafood #followme #summerfood #beefcasserole #casserolerecipe
My dinner tonight....Plant Lasagna! I was so busy making my Tofu Ricotta that I forgot to add spinach to the dish, so I just sautΓ©ed a side to eat with the meal. I also used my dehydrated tomatoes and made some Vegan Parmesan to sprinkle on top. I really enjoyed the taste, but three things I would do differently is: make more Tofu Ricotta to make it more creamy, not forget to add the Spinach, and not layer Eggplant last. The taste was bursting with flavor! . . . . #plantbased #veganlasagna #plantsagna #tofuricotta #castironcooking #tofu #spinach #sautΓ©ed #veganlife #healthyalternatives #eggplant #blackveganofig #veganish #myveganjourney #zucchini #foodblog #stlbloggers #personalblogger #fibrodiet #homecookedmeals #poweredbyplants #veganblog #cleaneating #plantprotein #wholefoodsdiet #amaturecook #veganfoodie #glutnefree #fibroblogger

Grilled Chicken salad!!! With lettuce, carrots, red cabbage,wonton shells, sunflower,seeds shredded almonds, a little bit of cheese, boiled eggs and light on Thousand Island dressing. Yum yum!! Even if you live with chronic pain eating healthy does help your health. I love my veggies but I also love chocolate. I don't eat chocolate everyday but doesn't mean it's out of my lifestyle. As I see it I'm only going to live once so enjoying a brownie or a cookie here and there isn't going to kill me. It's how much you eat is what is important.... Enjoy life and the food you eat. πŸ˜ŠπŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’œπŸ’™ #salad #grilledchicken #easyrecipes #recipes #veggies #chicken #saladrecipe #simplemeals #lunch #homecookedmeal #fibrodiet #fibromyalgiawarrior #fibromyalgiawareness #healthyfood #youonlyliveonce #livepostive #livehappynow #happy #happinesss #foods #invisibleillness #invisibledisease #fatigue
πŸ„πŸ„ Tonight I felt like being adventurous with dinner and try something new. I purchased these beauties at Soulard Market. πŸ„ Pink Oyster, White Oyster, and Lion's Mane Mushrooms! There was a street vendor selling Chinese Veggies, so I purchased some Kōng XΔ«n CΓ i (Chinese Water Spinach). This was truly an experiment.... The taste was good, but next time I will use a different Noodle, and remove more of the stem from the water spinach. Who else has cooked with these mushrooms or greens? . . . . #kongxincai #waterspinach #beancurd #lionsmanemushroom #pinkoystermushrooms #oystermushrooms #fibrodiet #myveganjourney #blackveganofig #ramennoodles #kitchenexperiments #exoticfood #somethingnew #mushrooms #foodpic #vegandinner #personalblog #stlmo #soulardmarket #foodblog #myhealthyjourney #fungi #blackvegan #wokcooking
Had a great morning at church, now we're going to the state fair and rodeo with the fam! I'm so excited. It's going to be a great day. But the state fair is full of food vendors. And sadly, most of those food vendors don't fall within my anti-inflammatory dietary guidelines. After about 2 weeks back on this dietary plan, I'm starting to feel really good again. My fibro symptoms aren't fully ruling my life anymore. So I don't want to completely derail all the hard work I'm putting in. My health and my quality of life are more important to me than a tasty state fair meal. So I'm bringing some healthy snacks to keep me on track today. Carrots, an apple, beef jerky, pecans, and my nutrient packed shake. I'm ready to roll! . . . #healthysnacksonthego #healthy snacks #qualityoflifeismoreimportantthanfood #antiinflammatorydiet #antiinflammatory #nmstatefair #nmmama #healthymomlife #healthymamabear #healthymama #fibrowarrior #fibromyalgia #fibrodiet #cleaneating #cleaneatingtastesgood #eattolivedontlivetoeat #takebackyourlife
πŸ¦„ I crave different types of veggies each day. Today was green peppers. The rest was mushrooms, two eggs, pepper, A pintch of pink salt and Wella breakfast is done. All the veggies and the creaminess of the yolk brings a lot of flavor together. A simple healthy breakfast to start the day. πŸ’›βœŒ πŸ’­ I hope everyone else is having a wonderful day like me. This is my first breakfast I have cooked in months due to my fibromyalgia. Most days focus on getting out of bed and get ready for the day. Today I didn't have to use my cane, so I had both hands free to cook. I'm thankful for today. πŸ‘πŸ™πŸ’ͺπŸ’ƒ#fibrodiet #fibromyalgiawarrior #fibro #buildaladder #simonandmartina #cookingchallenge #cookingathome #breakfast #healthybreakfast #fibromyalgiawareness #chronicillnesswarrior #invisibledisease #fightthroughthepain #followmeplease #followme #foodporn #photography #foods #veggies #greenpeppers #mushrooms #veggielife #simplemeals #health #foodart
I was finally able to get out of the house today. I made it through my first week of not being able to drive! My sweetheart took me to Handel's Market Cafe for dinner and I was very impressed. It's a nice neighborhood cafe nestled in the beautiful community of Florissant. The decor and ambiance was outstanding! We sat on the patio and enjoyed the picturesque landscaping, and great service! They also had Vegan options available! I enjoyed the Garden Pasta, Side Salad, and a glass of RosΓ© wine! It was my first time there, but definitely not my last! . . . #datenight #dinnerout #fibrodiet #fibroblogger #myveganjourney #myveganlife #veganblogger #veganpasta #sidesalad #personalblogger #stlblogger #stlblog #veganish #blackvegan #hendelscafe #cafedining #buylocal #florissantmo #myhealthyjourney #plantbasedvegan #fibrowarrior #vegandinnertime #winewithdinner

Finally! A mayonnaise I can eat that won’t inflame my gut or cause stomach discomfort! Thanks, @sirkensingtons for a tasty line of mayo!
This is @allure_renee 's story my fellow fibroid sister😊. This picture was taken after she had her first surgery where about 12 fibroids were removed from her uterus.. "Diagnosed with fibroids in summer 2014 and my fibroid was about 7cm. My cycle was normal - every 28 days for 7 days, but I had heavy cycles with clots. I had lost 50 lbs, so my diet changed and I had lost weight, but my fibroids didn’t make me think anything abnormal was happening and I was not educated about fibroids. 2016 - fibroid was about 8cm and ultrasound showed that it was degenerating. Symptoms became worse - heavy bleeding, swollen abdomen, fibroid pain, blood clots, irregular bleeding. I was suffering from iron deficiency anemia as well. So, shortness of breathe, cold hands and feet, heart palpitations, noise in my right ear, and always tired. 2017 - I was getting monthly IV Iron Infusions, ended up getting an emergency blood transfusion, so OBGYN put me on a low dose estrogen birth control even though I knew better. Bleeding was still heavy and was advised to double up on birth control. Worse advice because I was feeding the fibroids. One day I was bleeding for an hour and a half non-stop, which caused me to miss work for a few days. Fibroid grew to 13cm, stopped BC and started Lupron. Lupron - I had night sweats, hot flashes, mood swings, and my cycle never stopped but I could manage them. Lupron for 9 months - shrunk to 10cm. The surgery was an Open Myomectomy. Procedure done on 8/24 with 2 surgeons and removed 12 fibroids from inside my uterus." I go through the same symptoms as Allure and I am glad that there's someone like her that I can share my experiences with because sometimes it's hard to explain to people who don't understand what exactly I go through☺ #livingwithfibroids #fertility #infertility #retrogademenses #PCOS #womb #ilovemywomb #anemic #chronicpain #chronicbackpain #painworrior #nausea #spoonie #alwaysatthedoctor #alwaystakingmeds #invisibledisability #fibrodiet #hormones #imbalancehormones #irritablebowelsyndrome #bloated #subserousalfibriods #ilovemywomb @allure_renee thank you babe hope you had a smooth recoveryπŸ˜—πŸ˜‹πŸ˜β€πŸ‘ΈπŸ½

Feeling all sort of autumn love with this breakfast jar this morning. Last night I used up some apples by cooking them with some honey and cinnamon and it goes really lovely with @kokodairyfree coconut yoghurt and @deliciousalchemy nutty granola.

This is not my go-to phrase, but it’s fitting for this circumstance. The family and I have decided to split with a certain someone who’s been a part of the family for years.

My first time making the @beyondmeat burger, and I was not disappointed! I pre-season it and the taste was amazing! I added some @followyourheart vegan mayo, @naturesgreens Kale, a ripe green tomato πŸ…, avocado πŸ₯‘, and onions on a toasted bun. Instead of traditional french fries as a side, I fried plantains! They were super sweet and delicious.

Pain Relief Tip #3 Diet Pretty sure I forgot this on my initial list but it is SO IMPORTANT. When I was first diagnosed this is the exact picture I used to start changing my diet. My infographics came later πŸ˜‰ Try to do one step higher then your best. Make a plan, make a plan of how to stick to your plan, tell your family and friends so they can support you and in a few weeks you'll go...hey wait disnt that thing used to hurt? What's up? It's not there! YOU WILL FEEL A DIFFERENCE in pain and #brainfog Your #fibrodiet may look much different then mine. #knowledgeispower so your own research about what nutrients help pain and inflammation, eat foods full of those nutrients and avoid foods that make you worse. And be forgiving. If you REALLY want a cheat, it that ish. It wont kill you and itll be a little stress relief cause you want it so bad! Avoid harsh or strict diets, regimented ones. Those set you up for failure and deprive you oftentimes of nutrients from fruits and other natural sources! #fibro #fibrowarrior #spoonie #spooniesisterhood #chronicpain #chronicfatigue #beautifuldisaster #knowledgeispower #invisableillness #invisableillnessawareness #pain #anxiety #depression #mentalillnessawareness #mentalillness #holistic #veglife #holistichealing

πŸ…πŸ… Dehydrated Tomatoes πŸ…πŸ… I have made these before, but I usually make them in the oven on the lowest temperature setting. This time I used my @gourmia dehydrator, and they were perfect. It took about 40 hours for the consistency I was aiming for, but well worth the wait. I also used fresh herbs from my garden (swipe to see 🌱🌱 pictures).

Health strategy #29 - My go to lunch is pho. After I recovered from the withdrawal of Fentanyl & other opiates in 2015, I discovered the choice of foods I made directly amplified the neurological responses of my CRPS. My vegan food program evolved through my desire to reduce all neurological β€œnoise.” Becoming a vegan has improved the quality of my life & I share this story not to proselytize any lifestyle over another but to honestly share how I live well in spite of living with CRPS for 32+ yearsπŸ™πŸŒˆπŸ¦„ #vegan #pho #antiinflammatorydiet #handmadejewelry #rsd #crps #antiinflammatoryfoods #plantbased #plantbaseddiet #plantbasedlife #fibrodiet #nutrition #crpswarrior #chronicpain #chronicpainwarrior #painfreeliving #painfreelifestyle #painfreebody #neuroplasticity #gmi #gradedmotorimagery #asianfood #fitbit #occupationaltherapy #physicaltherapy #arttherapy #gardentherapy #pettherapy #qualityoflife

I took a small break from posting for some personal R&R, and to also learn about a new company I am now a part of. Aloe Veritas is a plant based (Aloe Vera) company that used the Aloe Vera plant to heal the body from the inside-out! I am a chronic pain sufferer and I know first hand that this stuff WORKS! That's why I ran at the opportunity to jump on board. I was recently diagnosed with posterior tibial tendinitis, but before I knew why my inner ankle was swollen and hurting badly! @gloriarussell and @pieceofmindhair13 put a mixture of AloeMD and Thermal Lotion on my ankle and 15 minutes the swelling was gone and the pain was almost nonexistent! Even Tramadol was not helping me with the pain, so that should tell you something! My tendon is so damaged that I will have to wear a cast, but the Aloe Veritas AloeMD & Thermal Lotion is a lifesaver! The Drink Gel is also amazing for fighting fatigue and helping with mental clarity! It has helped me with my malabsorption problems! I will have to share that story in the future!

While there is no single β€œfibromyalgia diet,” research does reveal that certain ingredients or types of food may be problematic for those with fibromyalgia. And as we are all different there is no one diet fits all, with that in mind, it pays to have a well-rounded healthy diet. Eating a balanced diet is a good idea for anyone, regardless of whether you have fibromyalgia. That diet should include fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, healthy fats, and lean protein, such as chicken or fish. Choose fresh, whole foods high in fiber and low in added sugars.” Alongside beans, foods to include are almonds and other nuts and seeds, broccoli, tofu, oatmeal, dark leafy greens, and avocado. Avoid unhealthy foods, including anything processed or fried, and excessive amounts of saturated fats. Also, limit the amount of sugar in your diet. Some fibromyalgia patients are sensitive to gluten, even Fibromyalgia patients who were negative for celiac disease still had significant improvements in pain and/or quality of life indicators when following a gluten-free diet. . . . #recovery #recoveryclinicireland #fibromyalgia #fibromyalgiawarrior #fibromyalgiaawareness #mylagicencephalomyelitis #chronicillness #chronicfatigue #fibrodiet #thyroid #fibro #awareness #illness #chronicpain #fibromyalgiasucks #cfs #health #ireland #fibroireland #fibrofood #myalgicencephalomyelitis #cfsrecovery #adrenalfatigue #hypothyroid #fibromyalgiasupport #spoonie #chronicillnesswarrior

Lunch to-go! I started out at @panerabread online ordering Rapid Pick-up. When I arrived my name was first on the list under preparing. Five minutes later it moved to ready, then disappeared within seconds. I still sat patiently waiting as others picked up their orders that obviously came in after me. Finally I got up and asked about my food and was told they didn't see an order in my name. It just disappeared and my food was never made....so much for rapid! So that is how I ended up at @puravegancafe for lunch. Much better food and way better customer service! πŸ™Œ I ordered the Sprout Lover Tacos 🌱 with added πŸ₯‘ and they were delicious! πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹ I also added more πŸ…πŸ₯‘ to them once I got home!

Okra! So yesterday I officially started my "Vegan Low Carb" eating experiment! I want to find out if my body will fuel itself from my bodyfat and as a result burn more fat. I definitely know that our bodies need carbohydrates, but this is a personal choice. This is not something that I plan on doing as a permanent change or long term! Since I have trouble working out due to multiple medical conditions, I felt this was worth a try. I'm learning that everyone's journey to health is different, and while I may not try the same thing as others, I can still be supportive! I love ❀ being encouraged through my interaction with the wonderful people I've encountered on Instagram! We all have different bodies, personalities, issues, lives, conditions; therefore our journeys can have similarities but will ultimately be as unique as we are as individuals! . . . #Fibromyalgia #fibroblogger #fibrodiet #fibrowarrior #blackvegan #myhealthyjourney #myveganjourney #personalblog #stlmo #stlblogger #blackveganofig #okra #castiron #spinach #liquidsmoke #justeatit #okrasoup #healthyfoodchoices #veganlife #veganish #seaweed #currypowdew #foodpic #foodpictures #amaturephotography
This is THE #fibrosmoothie You know I aim for 75% #raw diet. To simplify things (plus im never hungry for breakfast) i normally do smoothies in the morning. This is my base recipe. I've added things to it over time, herbs, supplements on and off, more fruits, greens, superfoods-whatever has the newest nutrient I'm trying to get. But this smoothie recipe is is a very simple base to start with and build from. All contents ingredients have some special fibro vitamin or use of some kind. I could talk about smoothies for days, so I'll stop here. More to come later, maybe my process, how I make this an easy task for me (since brushing my own hair is difficult) 》 I'm all for accomplishing a healthy life style, the easiest way possible...otherwise I wont waste my #energy trying.

I really didn't do much gardening this year, but that didn't stop these babies from sprouting up on their own! 🌱 I had an abundance of Basil and Wild Mustard Greens. The basil dropped its own seeds last year, so I didn't have to plant any, and pretty much the same thing with the wild mustard greens....so free food for me πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜‹ If you look to the left of the bowl you can see the mustard seed pods. I harvest the seeds and plant them and also use them for spices!

About last night.... I was craving something filling that would stick to my stomach and that was a quick fix. This was one of those dishes that I put together with no rhyme or reason...so nothing was measured! It was cooked on the fly! There's some Okra, onions, Garlic, potatoes, curry powder, vegetable broth, and a few other seasonings I grabbed while cooking. πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹ . . . #Fibromyalgia #fibroblogger #fibrodiet #fibrowarrior #blackvegan #myhealthyjourney #myveganjourney #personalblog #stlmo #stlblogger #blackveganofig #okra #gulash #justeatit #okrasoup #healthyfoodchoices #veganlife #veganish #vegetablebroth #potatoes #currysoup #foodpic #foodpictures #amaturephotography

My favorite part of BBQ...the sweet potatoes. One of my dietary restrictions is no nightshades. (Potatoes, eggplant, bell peppers, tomatoes) when I cut these out the burning sensation I used to have in my hands went away. But so did my beloved mashed potatoes 😭 I have rediscovered sweet potatoes. I am learning a ton of different ways to cook it and I'm in love! What's you BBQ favorite? Or have you had to give up a favor because of fibro? #bbq #sweetpotato #numnumnum #fibro #fibrowarrior #fibrostrong #fibromyalgia #fibroworker #fibro_s_beautiful_disaster #beautifuldisaster #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicfatigue #fatigue #fibromyalgiawarrior #fibromyalgiasucks #fibrosoldier #fibrodiet #fibropain #fibromyalgiaawareness #outdoorcooking #grill #grillmaster #grillmarks
Hey y'all, happy #tuesday I hope everyone made it through Monday unscathed! . . Food question: Is coleslaw a summer staple for you? I know I love it, and I made a sugar free version (up on my blog) so I can enjoy it while still being #keto . . There's also a couple of other dishes featured too! But tonight, I'm fasting and doing some meal prep after work, waiting for the temps to drop down again :P . . Do you have a favorite coleslaw recipe? . . . #tuesdayvibes #comfortfoods #spoonieblogger #healthyeats #homemade #kitchenfun #LCHF #ketofied #thisisnotstarvation #healthy #weightloss #ketodiet #foodphotography #ketoworks #fibromyalgia #fibrodiet #potd #ketofam #foodgasm #photography #healthyfood #huffposttaste #picoftheday #ketofood #foodgram #foodoftheday #ketoliving #notdeprivedoftastyfoods

It is what it is. I aim for a 75% raw diet. Whole foods, minimal grains, minimal caffeine and sugar. And when I stick to that my body thanks me. But for me, taking care of my soul is ckjust as important as taking care of my body. When I deny myself too much, i get agitated, annoyed, stressed, I'm left wanting. My body reacts to that and attacks me. So I've succumbed to the fact that I need to give attention to both. Anything and everything that nags me in the back of my mind, they all get their moment to shine. Today its cupcakes, our family cat is dying, I've spent my whole life being hard on myself. Not anymore. Today I want a cupcake, so I'm eating one, or a few, but I'm not giving up on my diet, I'm working on some locally grown berries. Thank you co-op. And thank you cupcakes #fibro #fibromyalgiawarrior #fibrosoldier #fibromyalgiasucks #fibrowarrior #fibrostrong #fibromyalgia #fibrodiet #fibro_s_beautiful_disaster #fibromyalgiaawareness #beautifuldisaster #chronicillness #chronicpain #help #ouch #pain #invisableillness #weakbutmighty #chronicfatigue
πŸ‰πŸ‰ Watermelon Strawberry Smoothie πŸ“πŸ“ I have always wanted to make a watermelon smoothie (rind and all) but never owned a blender that could do the trick....that is until now! My Vitamix A3500 handled that rind and seeds like a champ...it was smooth like vegan butter πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I didn't actually measure anything, but it was really good and was approximately 20oz. I used coconut water, watermelon (everything), and a handful of frozen strawberries. It wasn't very sweet, which was perfect for me! Swipe β¬… to see my Vitamix in action. . . . . . #Fibromyalgia #fibrodiet #fibrowarrior #plantbased #blackvegan #myhealthyjourney #myveganjourney #personalblog #stlmo #stlblogger #chronicillness #spoonie #flareup #superfoods #lifestylechanges #healthyalternatives #naturalhealing #healingfoods #watermelon #watermelonwithseeds #seededwatermelon #smoothistime #vitamixa3500 #vitamix #watermelonstrawberry #lycopene #watermelondrink #coconutwater #healthbenefits
Protip: eat better! Yeah obviously right? Isnt everyone suppose to? Yes! Ok but for fibro making your diet 75% raw will make you feel amazing! #fibro #fibromyalgia #fibromyalgiaawareness #fibromyalgiawarrior #fibromyalgiasucks #fibro_s_beautiful_disaster #fibrodiet #raw #rawvegan however...that's quite the diet to try to maintain while dealing with fibropain, work, family, home, chores #fatigue #chronicpain #healthyfood #pain #depression #anger #changeyourlife If like me you cant always do 75% raw. Try aiming for 2 raw meals a day and one cooked. I aim for a smoothie in the morning, salad for lunch, and something warm and yummy for dinner. That's me. What works for you? Tonight I'm having my favorite salad courtesy of #bruthadudes #bellingham
I really didn't eat tonight or today for that matter, so I made a banana 🍌 chocolate smoothie cashew/almond milk shake πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹ yummy yummy! It was so filling and cocolicious! This is definitely a must try. I used about 1.5 cups of milk and 3 small Frozen Bananas and mixed in my Vitamix. . . . . #chocolateshake #veganshake #bananashake #vitamixa3500 #blackvegan #veganish #personalblogger #stlmo #stlblogger #myhealthyjourney #lifestylechanges #vitamix #cacaonibs #traderjoes #cashewmilk #almondmilk #nutmilk #dairyfree #chocolatemilk #chocolatemilkshake #frozenbanana #fibrodiet #vegansmoothies
When you’re broke af, you can get still usually get 2 boxes of M&C for a buck, and you can stock up, giving you many days of that tasty, carb heavy dish. But if you’re keto? My Poor Girls Keto Mac and Cheese. Just 3 ingredients. Not too expensive Read about it in my new blog post :) . . Taste absolutely does NOT have to be sacrificed when following the keto way of eating. My husband said the other day that he thinks food is MORE flavorful when it’s not wrapped in bread. Been trying to say that for ages! Now to convince the kiddoes... . . #wednesdayvibes #comfortfoods #spoonieblogger #healthyeats #homemade #kitchenfun #LCHF #ketofied #thisisnotstarvation #healthy #weightloss #ketodiet #foodphotography #ketoworks #fibromyalgia #fibrodiet #potd #ketofam #foodgasm #photography #healthyfood #huffposttaste #picoftheday #ketofood #foodgram #foodoftheday #ketoliving #notdeprivedoftastyfoods
