I literally feel like I’ve been crammed into a food processor lately, set on the highest speed, and poured back into a shit-colored cup. They say you are what you eat. (I don’t know who. Someone smarter than me.) And since I 100% for sure haven’t been eating actual shit lately, there must be some ingredient in some of my usual fare that is making me feel gross.
Raise your hand if you currently feel:
- Tired, even when you get enough sleep
- Digestively abnormal
- <Insert a symptom that makes you feel down>
I just finished reading a book called Fibromyalgia Freedom! That is my current tentative diagnosis. It talks about how your gut is your second brain, and how if your gut ain’t right, neither is your brain! It’s pretty interesting, and I definitely recommend it, even if we don’t share a diagnosis. I know there are a lot of worn out mamas out there.
Here are some of the recipes I am dying to try once I start my elimination diet in a couple weeks. Apologies for the pics of the recipes instead of some fancy graphics. It’s been a hell of an afternoon, and this was easier. #huffingalltheStressAway (The nutritional info is a little small, so I will retype that under each image.)

I hope these recipes give you some ideas on meals you can try that will make you feel a little less processed. I’m definitely psyched to try them. I’m gonna be keeping you guys updated on what I try out of like the 40 recipes I took from the book, what was easy to make, what my husband liked, etc. I think that is going to start being a weekly installment (how I ate that week). So keep your eyes peeled, and your tummies ready.
