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.
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.
I am 3 days into testing positive for COVID. My wife had been positive for a few days and while I was not feeling well, I tested negative a couple of times. Then one day, things progressed pretty quickly with a fever, fatige, and feeling terrible. Being on Remicade, my doctors got me on Paxlovid immediately. Initially, the Paxlovid didn’t seem to have much of an effect besides coating my entire mouth with the taste of aluminum foil. Today is the first day I haven’t been in excruciating pain from head to toe. I am still dealing with fevers at night that break in the morning, but I’m well enough to type this update, so it must be working!
A new study shows a bidrectional link between IBD and depression. People with IBD are 9x more likely to develop depression and people with depression are 2x as likely to develop inflammatory bowel disease.

A year ago I ran my first 1⁄2 marathon. 8 months ago I nearly lost my life from complications due to Crohn’s. Today, I started my journey back. Thanks for the 5k! #fleetfeetmonterey #thebigrun #GlobalRunningDay #coros #pace2
