All About Candida Overgrowth

I have been getting a ton of questions about Candida overgrowth recently, and since I’m currently on another Candida protocol, I thought it only made sense to write a full blog post about it. Candida is so familiar to me that quite honestly, I forget that not everyone immediately knows what I’m talking about when I mention Candida! When I first began my mission to restore my health a few years ago, Candida overgrowth was the first thing I was ever “diagnosed” with. I went on a strict protocol that resulted in an extremely strong die-off reaction, but eventually made…

How to Make Your Workouts More Efficient

I used to feel like the length of my workout indicated its quality. Looking back, all I can do is shake my head at that idea. I could’ve gotten better results and had way more free time for other things if I had shortened my workouts and just been more efficient. It took me far too long to recognize that you can do a kickass workout in a pretty short amount of time. I’m not sure who started the idea that the ideal time for a workout is an hour, but that’s extremely arbitrary and untrue. As I’ve said many times, I think way…

Starting from Scratch with My Health Protocol

I used to think that I would have nothing to write about in my health protocol updates, but turns out there has actually been a lot to keep you updated on! That might seem like a bad thing, because it means complications are coming up. But it does make these posts a bit more exciting, so that’s the upside. In my last health update, I explained that a lot of my old symptoms had returned, and we suspected hydrogen sulfide SIBO might be the cause. I decided to go on a low-sulfur diet for a week or so to give my body…

Keto Cinnamon Fudge Avocado Brownies (Paleo)

The thought of sharing this brownie recipe with you brings an evil grin to my face because they are so delicious, it’s almost cruel. I’ve been plotting to make reaaaaallllly fudgey brownies for a long time now. I cannot even begin to explain to you how determined I was to make the perfect brownie. That’s my favorite type of brownie – the fudgier (is that a word?), the better. Honestly, if I’m making brownies for myself, I prefer them undercooked so that I get that “heavy” texture. Top it with some ice cream, and I’m in pure heaven. Creating a…

How Relationships Can Help You Find Food & Body Freedom

I think most people, if not everyone, struggles with poor body image at some point. Feeling self-conscious, alone, and trapped, whether that be just for a moment or for a long period of time. Hyper-aware of how they look, and limiting their lives because of a lack of self-confidence. Similarly, disordered eating habits and thoughts seem to be all too common nowadays. Eating disorders like anorexia, bulimia, and orthorexia are all on the rise. But even if someone doesn’t have an “official” eating disorder, it seems like almost everyone struggles with some version of disordered eating. That might be undereating,…
