Sorry I haven't posted on this account for a while- I've been feeling quite well, with only short flare ups, and I have been posting a lot on my personal page @mtcallaway I have spent months researching and completely changing my diet to try to reduce my inflammation and control my symptoms which has worked really well. I'm still unwell most days but I have actually had some energy to go out a live life a bit more, I understand that I may have bad days following days out, but it seems worth it as I've been able to enjoy some of my days and nights out, which wasn't the case a year ago. I am currently doing a 30 days to healthy living program which cuts out all allergens and toxins including meat, dairy (which I don't eat anyway) gluten, soy, processed foods, added sugars, caffeine and alcohol, and I have been feeling even better on it! I have been eating some raw food which has made me feel amazing after a few days of perseverance as I've been giving my body so many great nutrients. However, I wouldn't have been able to complete this plan a year ago with active Crohns and the state of my body, and so I have found that it is so important to make gradual changes to your diet to reduce your own inflammation in your guts and whole body. What we eat can really make a huge difference to our lives but it is a fine line when you already have an autoimmune disease as some healthy foods can cause flare ups if you suddenly change your diet. Gradual changes and playing the long game has really worked for me and many others. Obviously this photo isn't gluten free but it was from a day, during the 30 days to healthy living plan, that I had alcohol and a baguette at a festival day with my best friends, sometimes we slip up and that's ok, and sometimes we just need yummy simple carbs (although there are great healthier options like this) 😋 this was the avocado, olive tapenade, roasted tomatoes, pine nuts, basil, rocket and lemon baguette and it was yummy 😝 thanks to my hand model @stace.mjh as my wristband was upside down. We were at #festifeel for #coppafeel which reminds people to know their bodies and their normal and to check their boobs regularly- so go do it now!
