Hi 👋🏼 it’s been a while since I’ve introduced myself! My name is Lindsey. I am a registered pediatric nurse 👩‍⚕️ . I love running, eating 🍽, and most importantly, Jesus. I suffer from colonic inertia, chronic SIBO, and was recently diagnosed with lupus. Each day that goes by is a struggle, but I am thankful that I don’t have to rely on my own strength to carry on 🙌🏼. I suffer from illness but I am not defined by it. To help control my symptoms I have changed my unhealthy lifestyle and I started eating foods that are given to me from God’s green earth 🌍! Let me tell ya sis, I’m never looking back! Follow along with me as I find new ways to make “healthy” food taste amazing!!!!! 😉 And remember, you’re never alone! 💕 📷: @byjessicajames . . . #sibo #sibodiet #fodmap #lowfodmapdiet #fodmapfriendly #colonicinertia #tumerictea #autoimmune #autoimmunedisease #aip #autoimmuneprotocol #autoimmunediet #constipation #bloating #godgivengoodness #restoreyourradiance #healthylifestyle #healthyrecipes #jesusfirst #onedayatatime #lupusawareness #lupus #lupuswarrior

Y’all are AMAZING!!! Thank you SO MUCH for all of the encouraging messages I have received about my job change! It’s so bittersweet!! 😭😅 I have been SUPER slack about posting photos.... I guess you could say I’ve been lazy 🤦🏼‍♀️. But I want you to know that I’ve been working on my domestic princess 👸🏼skills, AKA cooking healthier options for my husband... ON A BUDGET!! The hurricane did throw me off this month, but we are getting there... 🌪 Above is a SIMPLE, healthy, alternative to tacos 🌮. Replace your shell with a romaine heart, use ground chicken or turkey, top with avocado 🥑, and cheese (or nutritional yeast if you can’t tolerate). Always remember that you can modify any meal to fit YOUR needs!!! DINNER. IS.

Okay people.... I need YOU!!! My brand new kitchen has been infested with roaches. LITERALLY my worst nightmare. I would rather have spiders 🕷 I kid you not.. my roach phobia is so real. Not only that but our water heater busted and we have no hot water. Then my check engine light came on in my car 🤦🏼‍♀️... WHEN IT RAINS IT POURS PEOPLE. We had an exterminator come and nothing changed. I put roach motels out, bait gel, and borax powder. What tips do you have?? I want my kitchen back!!!! And my sanity!!!!! . . . #roaches #cockroach #glutenfree #glutenfreebread #udisbread #avocadotoast #fodmapfriendly #sibo #smallintestinalbacterialovergrowth #ibs #irritablebowelsyndrome #constipation #chiaseeds #himalyansalt

In all circumstances, “hope, in the Lord” Psalms 131:3. That’s such a difficult thing to do. When I want something [answers] I am the type of person who wants it now... Then add on physical pain and emotional suffering and the need becomes pressing. Lord, I need answers! Lord, why can’t everything just work out NOW? My bible study gave me a harsh dose of reality this morning. Ask yourself: “Can I wait in faith and patience without fretting and without questioning God’s wisdom? Can I trust Him while he works on me His good, acceptable, and perfect will?” - David Roper “In a world of mystery, it’s a comfort to know the God who knows all things.” Thank you Lord for protecting me from what I don’t know, and for taking care of what I can’t control. Lord, your ways are perfect. Always perfect. Pictured above: Skilled Creamy Chicken and Broccoli 🥦

These past two weeks have been difficult. No sugar coating here people!! There have been many tears, lots of prayers, and countless nights of hand holding with my husband. I woke up one morning and found this random, red, swollen rash with yellow puss-filled blisters on my arm. Needless to say, I went straight to urgent care since I had worked the day before (I’m a nurse). The doctors thought I may have caught something from the hospital and placed me on an antibiotic regime. WORST EVER. My stomach did not like the antibiotic AT ALL. I was extremely nauseous, bloated, and in a lot of pain. I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to finish it. I am still recovering from the antibiotic and am frustrated at this set back. I felt like I was doing so well and now I am back at square one. My health has taken a big hit these past few weeks. That being said, I am trying my best to stay strong! I want to be real and transparent with you and tell you that I have been knocked down!!! It’s not always positive vibes over here sistas... Something that I do need to work on is remembering that God has a plan, he will carry me through this, and that this too shall pass. Not every day is going to be easy, and how I handle it is my choice. It is all in God’s strong hands, not my weak, boiled filled, ones.... I made these muffins and I LOADED THEM WITH @furtherfood collagen peptides. I will heal my gut!!!! Thank you @furtherfood for helping me get there!!! . . . #restoreyourradiance #guthealth #antibiotics #furtherfood #simplemills #ibs #sweettooth #healyourgut #irritablebowelsyndrome #ibs #paleo #glutenfree #glutenfreefood #bloating #sibo #sibodiet #smallintestinalbacterialovergrowth #fodmapdiet #fodmapfree #feedfeed #digestion #constipation

Yes, it’s hot. No, that does not stop me from giving into my soup craving 😂 I was feeling some butternut squash soup today, so soup I will have!!!! Instead of using my @go_raw pumpkin seeds, I switched it up with some @go_raw watermelon seeds!! That makes it more acceptable right?! Adds the perfect crunch! Butternut Squash Recipe 👇🏼 1. Start by preheating your oven to 425F. 2. Cut a medium sized butternut squash in half and remove seeds. 3. Coat with olive oil, salt, and pepper. 4. Place face down on a baking sheet and cook for 45mins at 425F. 5. Once cooked and cooled, place squash (without skin) in a @vitamix blender. 6. Blend on high until thin. 7. Add one can of lite coconut milk 🍼 OR 2 cups of unsweetened vanilla almond milk 🍼 8. Add 2 tbsp of almond butter 🥜 9. Add 1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice 🎃 10. Blend until mixed. 11. Serve hot. Top with organic seeds from @go_raw and a dash of pumpkin pie spice 🙌🏼 Pair with gluten free bread on the side! . . . #gorawambassadors #gorawwatermelonseeds #goraw #butternutsquash #butternutsquashsoup #whole30 #paleo #fodmap #ibsdiet #sibodiet #sibo #fallsoup #fallsoups #restoreyourradiance #foodinstagram #guthealth #ilovefall #octobereats #healthyfood #healthyeating #healthylifestyle #udis #feedfeed

Well friends, my toe is NOT broken!!!! PRAISE! AND I managed to make it through an entire work shift with the help, and GRACE, of my AMAZING coworkers. They are seriously amazing (major brag moment). For now, I will continue to rest my “severely bruised toe” and embrace God’s clear message to... S L O W D O W N. In the meantime I will eat chocolate!!!! If you are looking for a great tasting vegan chocolate 🍫 you MUST try this brand @loving_earth. Best I have ever had!!!
