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

October 1st is Ostomy Awareness Day and I am running a virtual 5k to raise money for awareness and research. Please support me or better yet, sign up to run with me!

Support my run:

This is a virtual event, so you can run from anywhere on my team!

If you’re in Monterey, come join me on the 5k in person!

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!

Last night’s 📖 talk and 🍺 run was so much fun! I met >10 people with or close to someone with an autoimmune disease. I made the Carrot Cake and an iced Golden Milk Chai to share from the book.

I’m doing a book talk at Fleet Feet Monterey for The Crohn’s Disease Autoimmune Protocol Diet Cookbook this Monday combined with a Pub Run and snacks from the book! If you’re nearby and are looking to reduce inflammation as an athlete, come join us!

More info, here.

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.
