I did a 'no meat' experiment today and my bladder felt WAY BETTER than it ever did in these past 8 months of my chronic UTI (misdiagnosed as IC). It's quite possibly the best day so far. Frequency was every 3-4 hours today unlike my usual 1-1.5 hour. Today I only had Fiji water, raw Celery sticks with almond butter, and home-made Veggie Broth (zucchini, cilantro, celery, garlic, basil, cabbage, red bellpepper, stewed in Fiji water). I had 0 meats, so this might have been the key?🍗🗝 Usually I eat like this but with organic baked/steamed chicken, freshwater steamed fish, and home-made grass-fed bone broth. Seems my bladder wants 0 acidity (meat is low-to-high acidic). My supplements stayed the same. Been reading IC/UTI blogs on how some girls healed quickly on raw vegan/veggie-only diets, so I'll try this out for a week to see if there's truly a difference.🥑🥦🥒 I'm going to miss eating meat for a week.😂
• What should I do with my left over fruit and veg?
. . .
gives us some cool little tips & tricks 🛒👇🏼
. . .
// Many of us start the week with the best intentions. After a trip to the fresh fruit and veggie market, we return home with a car full of our 5 veggies and 2 fruits for each day and a hundred biodegradable shopping bags...
But what happens at the end of the week when there are leftover veggies and fruit slowly wilting in the fridge or ripening a little to fast in the fruit basket.
Here are some great recipes to use those leftovers!
• • • • •
➰ F R U I T 🍉:
1. Freeze fruit in small ziplock bags to use in smoothies (this works particularly well for apples, bananas, berries, mango and melon).
2. Poach it - cut the fruit up, pop in a saucepan, cover with water and simmer on low heat until soft. Them freeze for smoothies or use to sweeten yoghurt or oats (this works particularly well for stone fruit, apples and pears)
• • • • •
➰ V E G G I E S 🥔:
1. Snap freeze - blanch the fruit in iced water then seal in a ziplock bag and pop in the freezer for use in soups, stir-fries, casseroles etc. (this works particularly well brassica vegetables, peas and beans, carrots, capsicums and corn)
2. Make a soup - Roughly chop the veggies, pop in a saucepan and cover with water or a salt-reduced vegetable stock. Add herbs or spices then simmer until vegetables are at the texture you want. Then blitz for a smoother consistency or freeze as-is (this works particularly well for potatoes, broccoli, sweet potato, pumpkin, peas, onions, brassica vegeatbles and mushrooms.
3. Add to a smoothie (this works particularly well for spinach, cucumber, zucchini, carrots and beetroot)
4. Make a dip - steam the vegetables until soft then blitz with olive oil and salt and pepper. Stir in flavouring with spices like paprika, garlic powder, turmeric or cumin (this works particularly well for carrots, beetroot, spinach, pumpkin, cauliflower and capsicum)
Chicken-Ricotta Meatball Soup🤗 (recipe by Martha Stewart)
This dish was the perfect ending to chilly, rainy day. My 7 year old loved it too! So filling & light at the same time.
1 pound organic chicken breast (ground)
64 oz organic chicken broth
15 oz ricotta cheese
1/3 cup grated parmesan
5 oz spinach
In bowl mix the chicken, ricotta, parmesan and egg and mix thoroughly then make the meatballs and set aside.
Bring the broth to a boil and add a bit of thyme then drop in the meatballs. Decrease the hear to a simmer & drop the meatballs in the broth--they will rise to the top and are fully cooked after about 20 minutes. Right before serving, drop in the raw spinach and cook for about 5 minutes. Season with Himalayan sea salt & serve!

An impromptu fajita plate with no tortillas because..... BROKE.
I sautéed onions, bell peppers, jalapeños and portobello mushrooms with a bunch of random ass spices [garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, oregano, salt, pepper, & cayenne cause I like spicy ;)] topped with cilantro, avocado and lime. (Probably less than $8 - considering it was mostly leftover groceries)

It’s funny to think of the chili pepper as a fruit. Especially because they do so much to avoid being eaten by us. It definitely is nothing like a sweet, pulpy banana, or a juicy, tart orange, nor as easy to eat as a plump pear. But along with tomatoes, zucchini, okra, and eggplant, chilies are the most common fruits-eaten-like vegetables. And chilies can be incredibly healthy, so pile on the chili powder!

Everytime I get a little too chubs for my liking, I turn to the make-everything-a-salad strategy. I am, like many, the type to tie myself to how full I feel as a way to manage my diet, especially when I'm trying to lose weight. Whether you struggle with hunger or not, regardless of your goals, eating extra veggies can only help. I like to keep things simple.
If ya know someone who can benefit from a tip like this, send them on over.

Let’s talk LENTILS 😍
1. Fiber - controls your appetite (feeling of fullness) and helps prevent constipation
2. Fiber also slows progression of disease in high risk individuals
3. Selenium - a mineral found in lentils which prevents inflammation decreases tumor growth rates, and improves immune response to infection by stimulating the production of disease-killing T-cells.
4. Great source of iron - for anyone with iron deficiency, lentil are great for you.
