. I shared this post a few months ago, but as many of you asked me what changes in my diet were the hardest, I thought it would be good to share it again! πŸ’›πŸ™ŒπŸΌ - Quitting sugar has been one of the hardest challenges of my journey. My family owns a bakery and I have been surrounded by sweets since I was born. After a few failed attempts of quitting sugar I finally said goodbye to it about a year ago. Unfortunately, Christmas and the holiday season came with too many "cheat days".. Now I am back to a strict "no sugar diet" and it is being a reminder of how hard it was for me to quit it. When I started I thought it was gonna be easy, but soon I realised I was addicted to it and that I could hardly sleep because I was craving sweets... It was a hard challenge and I can imagine it is (or has been) hard for many of you too, so I thought it would be a good idea to share my experience. If any of you have ever tried, I would love to hear about your journey! πŸ˜ŠπŸ’› - #quitsugar #quittingsugar #endometriosis #endodiet #endospoon #endosister #endowarrior #endometriosisawareness #endometriosisdiet #chronicillness #invisibleillness #chronicpain #nosugar #nosugarchallenge #nosugardiet

. I love filling the space and home with plants, not only for decoration, but also to benefit from them. For the kitchen, my favourite are Basil, Coriander and Mint (the easiest plant to take care of and you can add it to salads, juices and teas!!). For my bedroom, my favourite are plants that help me sleep. Some of those are Aloe Vera, Ivy and Snake Plant (all super easy to take care of!). Your favourite? πŸ‘‡πŸΌ - #endospoon #endometriosis #endometriosisawareness #plants #plantsmakepeoplehappy #plantsofinstagram #plantsplantsplants

. A year (and 6days) ago I opened this Instagram page and it has been an amazing journey. When I opened this account I was dealing with constant pain from Endo, I knew how diet could benefit me and had benefited me in the past, but I was having too many "cheat days". I had lost my motivation. I took the decision to start 'Endospoon' so I could get my motivation back but, to my surprise, I ended up being helpful to other girls and women who had also lost their strength. Today, I am in a much better place, physically and emotionally, and that has been thanks to my diet changes and having YOU and this community as a support. - And how are you girls feeling today? πŸ’› - #endospoon #endospoonie #endometriosis #endometriosisdiet #endodiet #endosister #endosisters #endowarrior #endowarriors #endometriosisawareness #invisibledisease #invisibleillness #invisibleillnessawareness #endofighter #fightlikeagirl

. That little (and big) bump that comes and goes.. you know what I am talking about? After one of my last stories, many of you reached out to me asking me if I had any tips to get rid of my #endobelly. I answered some of you through DM, but I thought it would be great to share some of my tips and you can also share yours on the comments. πŸ‘‡πŸΌ - So here we go... - HEAT! Yes, heat pad, hot water bottle, ANYTHING! It does not directly reduce the inflammation but it does help me feel less bloated and relax my muscles. - TURMERIC. I like to have it in teas or lattes. It helps reducing inflammation; my tip is not to only have it when you are bloated, but to include it in your diet regularly to PREVENT inflammation. - GINGER & LEMON. Sometimes, with the bloating I also experience nausea and general discomfort; these two ingredients are great to ease the nausea. - πŸ‘‡πŸΌ What do you usually do to deal with your endobelly? - #endometriosis #endometriosisawareness #endospoon #chronicillness #chronicillnessawareness #chronicdisease #invisibleillness #invisibleillnessawareness #endopain #raredisease #endosisters #endosister #endostrong #endowarrior #endowarriors #endopain #warriorwomen

. Hey! It has almost been a year since I opened this account but apart from talking about food and diet, I have rarely shared other things about myself.. I have been wanting to talk about other aspects of my journey for a while now, and I guess today is the day I tell a little! πŸ‘‰πŸΌEndo has been tricky for many years, but to get where I am now (in control of my body and pain) I had to change not only my diet, but my lifestyle. I guess the pain I felt for years made me avoid any kind of physical exercise, thinking it would just make me feel worse... One day - tired of "feeling constantly sick" - I started working out and surprisingly, the more I trained, the less tired I felt. Training, stretching and feeling flexible have been key to reduce my pain. Pole has been my biggest motivation for the past two years and recently I started doing yoga, which challenged me a little more. *While it might sound illogical to exercise when you are in pain, I found out that for me it has become a pain reliever.. - I know different initiatives, diets and exercises work different for each of us. But whatever it is, I encourage each of you to find your way and best treatment. We have to be our own advocates, because there is no doctor or person who knows our body as good as ourselves. - What keeps you motivated and helps you with pain? πŸ’› - #endometriosis #endometriosisawareness #endospoon #chronicillness #chronicillnessawareness #invisibleillness #invisibleillnessawareness #endopain #raredisease #endosisters #endosister #endostrong #endowarrior #endowarriors #polestretch #yoga #oneleggedwheelpose #ekapadaurdhvadhanurasana #warriorwomen #warriorwoman #healingpath #endojourney

. I love trying new food combinations and this week I tried these vegan cheesy Kale crisps. - But how? Easy! Just coated the Kale with a mixture of hot water, nutritional yeast, white pepper, salt and garlic. *To get a crispy texture without using oil, you just have to bake them at a low temperature to slowly dehydrate them (I cooked mine for 1h at 100°C). 🌱KALE is a cruciferous vegetable and contains DIM (diindolylmethane), which helps to detoxify harmful estrogens! - #endodiet #endofood #endospoon #endofoodie #endometriosis #endosisters #endowarrior #endowarriors #endostrong #endopain #endometriosisawareness #chronicpain #chronicillness #spoonielife #invisibleillness #invisibleillnessawareness #foodasmedicine #healthyfood #healthydiet #eathealthy #veganrecipes #plantbased #eathealthy #foodblogfeed #feedfeed #ahealthynut #gloobyfood #veganfoodspot #thenewhealthy
