Strawb's for days ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ“

Grain free taco bowl for the win๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ @butcher_box ground beef seasoned with Bearitos taco seasoning (clean for store bought but any recommendations for homemade recipes?!) with organic tomato, romaine & avocado. The gloomy rain this morning turned into a perfect summer day of pool-floating and working in my outdoor office. Aka lounge chair ๐Ÿ˜œ#girlinhealing

You have to check out this recipe: AIP Bacon Fat Sautรฉed Cabbage & Onions. This was my guest post for @empoweredautoimmune, so find it through the link in her bio! The recipe is simple and you'll even learn the benefits of cruciferous vegetables, such as cancer prevention supported by scientific research (as always) by Ali. Enjoy!โ˜บ

"Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart. Try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books written in a foreign language. Do not now look for the answers. They cannot now be given to you because you could not live them. It is a question of experiencing everything. At present you need to live the question. Perhaps you will gradually, without even noticing it, find yourself experiencing the answer, some distant day. Perhaps you are indeed carrying within yourself the potential to visualize, to design, and to create for yourself an utterly satisfying, joyful, and pure lifestyle. Discipline yourself to attain it, but accept that which comes to you with deep trust, and as long as it comes from your own will, from your own inner need, accept it, and do not hate anything." - Rainer Maria Rilke

There are many, many difficult things about living with IBD. Aside from the physical discomfort, missing out, fatigue, and social situations, for ME, gaining weight and keeping it on has been a STRUGGLE. Last summer I was withering away. I knew I had lost weight but seeing these pictures gives me a stomach ache and fills my eyeballs. Most foods that make people gain weight will make me lose weight- I can't tolerate them and I won't absorb anything (and may even lose more than I started with). When I took the last photo, I thought to myself "I'm going to gain weight somehow. And I'm going to take these photos so I can compare myself when that day comes." I can't remember the last time I was 100 lbs or over. And it's not just what I'm doing, because I was eating well and supplementing in the other two photos as well. There are other factors in #autoimmunedisease, although I will always stand by diet as a driving force for me, and most people.

When I start to lose weight, the first sign is my jutting hip bones. I hate it. I feel them when I shower, change my clothes, and sleep. When I would wrap my arms around myself there would be a gaping hole. And then these pointy hip bones cruelly reminding me of my too-slim figure. I felt gross, unattractive and honestly shameful and unworthy, even though I KNEW it wasn't my fault. One of the cruelest parts of #autoimmune Illnesses is sometimes the lack of evidence for all the good you may be doing. I'm thankful that what I am doing is working. I'm going to keep working on gaining weight to look good, feel good and have a little extra in case of future flares. I just want everyone to know, whether your condition makes you lose weight, gain weight, have skin issues, emotional problems, whatever, you HAVE to keep moving forward. You have to keep trying new things. Let go of the shame, guilt, and self-sabotage. Take a deep breath and know this is a healing marathon- not a sprint.
