Comfortably Happy

I used think eggs bothered me… too much sulfur

I used to think maybe avocados bothered me too.. too rich in fiber

I used to think white bread was secretly rotting my insides.

This long journey has taught me not to fear trying anything that might make this disease more comfortable.

And I’m comfortably happy eating all these foods again & more. I have to say Humira has been a game changer.

Soup Season My Friend Has Arrived

Its official! Soup Season has arrived : )

I have such a close relationship with soup. Like today, on a chilly fall Sunday, just making homemade soup in the kitchen I find comfort. Even from a can, soup has always been my best friend in the lowest of IBD days. There is something so healing about a bowl a soup. Today Asiago cheese : )

Memorial Cabin Weekend is here… Over packing… Probably



I will be spending 4 days with family who can live on cheesy potatoes, hot dogs and all yummy things that require strong indigestion remedies. 

Its ok though, I empty my fridge and away we go… Mind as well, it would spoil otherwise. I get a couple takers on my addition of vegtables to the menu. It has taken a long time to surrender to the reality…”everything in moderation is key”

Ohhhh that looks healthy… My IBD brain says otherwise


To the average person I eat pretty darn healthy. In the IBD world, my brain says this:

“Avocado-yes!, strawberries… Well they have seeds so be careful, ohh and and the hot grain cereal, it has the word grain in it… Soo really it should not be an option. Bananas are good but were they brown enough bc too green isnt that great either. At least your using real butter but it does have cream and well am I dairy sensative too this week? ”

I gobbled this up still completely satisfied because I feel I need the energy for the day and I push the IBD Google diet demons aside.  But for me this is insight as to how my brain is turning for every meal. I do believe what I eat has an effect on my colitis. Do I believe it caused my IBD or will make it go away miraculously, no. But I feel it does play an important role.
