Memorial Day weekend eating doesn’t have to leave you feeling terrible! You can put together a dozen trigger-free menus from my Autoimmune Protocol Cookbook.
Startup life can be high-stress, having a chronic illness like Crohn's adds another layer of complexity and daily challenges.
The reviews for my book, The Crohn's Disease AIP Cookbook, have been coming in from doctors, chefs, and the Crohn's community.
A friend gave this pin to me yesterday as I head towards my 20th surgery in 10 yrs. IBD isn’t a degenerative disease or a terminal illness, but can bring you to the brink over and over. If you have Crohn’s or UC, this is for you 💪🧘♂️🥷 #CrohnsAndColitisAwarenessWeek #IBDvisible
Post-run gluten free carbonara! Who says you can’t eat and cook amazing food when you have Crohn’s? This dish would even be appropriate for the reintroduction phase of the AIP diet.
I completed five 5k runs this week for #OstomyDay2022 - few people are more resilient than those who have had ostomy surgery and live with the challenges every day. Ostomies may be a daily physical, social, and emotional challenge, but they are life saving and don’t have to keep us from accomplishing amazing things.These runs were for all those that can’t 🙏.
Here is today’s microbiome boosting farmer’s market haul. I’m particularly excited for some fresh Thai basil, And Korean chilies. I’ve also got fresh raw 🐐 milk I’ll be making bifido yogurt from this weekend.
Lots of SCFA producers which are a source of fuel used by gut bacteria. Polysaccharides, ogliosaccharides, resistant starch, inulin

Ostomy surgery is a life-saving, and most often, a permanent procedure that diverts waste through the abdominal wall, creating a stoma that requires the person to wear a pouch. As you can imagine, the physical, social, and emotional stress of this kind of change is a strain that is difficult to talk about. Thank you for your support!

I started the day with a 5k run into Big Sur with the Fleet Feet Monterey Trailblazers and then had to rush to my Remicade infusion appointment. This is certainly living the autoimmune athlete life!
It was a totally amazing day in Alameda. My daughter’s first ever race. I ran about 10’ every mile and got better as I went. I wasn’t the fastest but few could be as happy or grateful at the finish line.
Status: Remission confirmed! It’s taken nearly a year to get back to Crohn’s remission after an ulceration nicked an artery and sent me to the ER in an ambulance.
Lots of hacking 🥦🧬🧘♂️🏃 + Remicade for the last 6 months = a lot of work for the exact outcome I was looking for.
