So, if you have IBS, IBD, Crohn's, Fructose Malabsorption or other digestive issues and are confined to the Low-Fodmap diet for some time, hopefully some of these recipes and food ideas will help you find a little happiness in what can seem like a daunting diet at times.
My pickiness has definitely gotten better over the years, and I've learned more about how to eat a balanced diet and live a healthy lifestyle, but it can still be hard to know what is good for my body and what isn't, especially with Fructose Malobsorption and IBS/IBD/Crohn's or whatever it is that is wrong with my intestines -- we are still working on figuring that out.
I'm not going to lie, it's been so hard. I'm getting tired of having to cook everything from scratch every night after getting home from work. I'm tired of not being able to freely eat out with family and friends. I've missed some good meals because of it.

A close friend of my family passed away from cancer on Saturday as well, marking a… Continue reading Spreading Peace
So, I did it. I signed up for the Louisville Sports Commission Half Marathon which will be on November 10!! That means I REALLY need to start training hard. This past Friday, I ran 5 miles in about 50 minutes, so I'm doing around 10 minutes per mile. I'd like to get it closer to… Continue reading Half Marathon Training
I haven't eaten meat for about a month and a half now, so I've been trying to make up some new vegetarian recipes that I will like and that Landon and Adam will like as well. Sometimes I make something that I can just add chicken into for them, but sometimes I make vegetarian meals… Continue reading Experimenting New Recipes
As someone who works out at least 5 times a week, I am often looking for something healthy and clean that will give me good energy to get through my workouts. Some days I'm just pumped and ready to go, but other days, I need a little boost. I talked to some of my good… Continue reading Kick Up the Energy!
There is a new study out that men who skipped breakfast had more chances of having a heart attack. They have been saying for years that people who eat breakfast tend to be healthier and control weight better.
