Why I’m a Rebbl and no Longer “Trying” for our Rainbow Baby

One of the most commonly asked questions I’ve gotten since my miscarriage is “when you going to start trying again?” Let me tell you how enraging that question is. I mean SHIT, it took my body 3 months after miscarrying to lose the HcGs, it took my mind / confidence even longer to heal (up…

There’s No Place like Rome

Ugh what I would do to live in Italy. Although I’ve only visited twice, I’ve spent a good chunk of time there both times I’ve visited. As you can imagine, my favorite part of Italy is obviously the food. Don’t get me wrong, the sites are beautiful and the air is fresh AF, but the food is…

6 Super Products To Help Boost Fertility

My body has had six months since my surgery to grieve and rid itself of those horrific HcGs. During that time, I read a lot of books, reached out to a lot of different people, traveled a lot, and have practiced healing myself. Whether it’s continuing my regimens of super clean foods, getting my weekly…

Sticky Orange Beef

Are you drooling yet? Well due to this weekend’s jet lag and major head cold, my goals for this weekend hit the dust. That also includes getting motivated to do some grocery shopping. The best I could do is whip up my meal prep for the week using most of my ingredients from the pantry…

Kicking My Stride to the Curb

Ever since last May when I found out about all of my food/environmental allergies, I have been detoxifying my life. The first wave was obviously cleansing my diet. The next phase was household items, makeup, lotions, and soaps. The last lingering change I’ve been neglecting is my gum habit. I mean who doesn’t like gum…

AIP/Paleo Macarons

Between puppy issues and being overwhelmed at work –I’ve definitely been off the grid lately. However, one thing that I have been doing is eating. A lot. Sigh. When I’m stressed, I rarely ever resort to food, it’s the opposite. However, my body has been just craving anything and everything lately. So I’ve given in….

Paleo / AIP / Whole30 Polish Pierogis and Dumplings

Ugh, what I would do to reverse back the clock to 2005’s Christmas Eve dinner at my Grandmother’s house. This was the last time my family has eaten a homemade polish meal. This was also before I moved out of my parents house, had perpetual student loan payments, experienced my first real heartbreak, food allergies,…

Beef Heart Stir Fry

Although I love eating my liver nuggets, I decided to venture out on my organ meat excursion and try something new, beef heart. I’ve dabbled in chicken heart before at a restaurant, but never beef. After ordering it and seeing it in the actual package, it looked disgusting. So I shoved it in our freezer…

Six Things to Know Before Getting a Puppy

Our lives were forever changed when we met our little Gracie from a rescue. Although she was the very first puppy we ever considered, she wasn’t the first puppy we “interviewed.” After meeting a few crazy, young breeds of puppies, and not not feeling 100% confident, little Gracie was carried out to us. She calmly walked over…

Chicken (But Really Pork Sausage) Soup for the Soul

Now that winter is full blown here in Chitown, everyone and their mothers’ sinuses/respiratory systems are feeling the wrath. Plus, being bone chilling cold outside wants me to get a giant bowl of piping hot ramen (my favorite ramen place in the city is STILL Furious Spoon – not diet compliant). Since luscious ramen noodles and spicy…
