This bowl is a mess, but griff is cute so haiiii. this bowl was all about the menstrual phase. baby kale massaged with cilantro pesto, mushrooms, eggs, guac, and some brazil nuts!
i’ve been experiencing some serious cramps around my period for the past couple of months, so i wanted to share with you all what i am doing in case you have experienced some similar symptoms. cramping can come from too much of one prostaglandin (pge2) and not enough of others (pge1 and pge3). another symptom of this is diarrhea or loose stools. one way to help with this is supplementing with essential fatty acids (efa’s). flax seeds are a great source, but i also recommend supplementing with a high quality fish oil. i am doing this and will let you guys know how this affects my next cycle. #holisticrendezvous

... today marks a new day & a new adventure: dairy free for 30 days & then reintroduce dairy items one at a time.
why? i had a lipid panel come back crazy high, not just a little, doctors-don’t-know-that-cholesterol-is-good-for-you-high, but high high and we are doing all the right things in life, so an ntp suggested that dairy is highly inflammatory. and then i read that a dairy protein allergy (not intolerance) can raise your heart rate. my resting heartrate was 107 yesterday. i have been concerned about a high heart rate for years.
thus ... i am conducting a science experiment of sorts. 🤷🏻♀️ so #dairyfreefor30days & hubs, once the dairy is gone that we have ... is going to support me to make it easier. he is one of a kind & i appreciate him with all my heart. 💕

Fact about me: about 6 years ago i was making vegan meals in my kitchen and delivering them to customers around the city. • this was my all time favourite meal i sent out- a multi layered tofu ricotta, cashew cream, kale, butternut squash lasagna. so good. i was also working on recipe development and vegan and vegetarian consulting. i have a free course at www.fulloflife.ca. check it out if you're interested! .
