This post is a combination of recipes that ended up working really well together.

How to Save Burnt-Flavored Yogurt

Posting from my cell, so please forgive any grammatical errors. Have you ever scorched your milk, perhaps unknowingly, and proceeded to make 24 hour yogurt only to discover it tastes god-awful burnt?

Homeopathic Methods

Update (10.23.18): I ended up taking a round of antibiotics because the infection went to my deeper sinuses causing no common sinus infection symptoms, just some pain in my cheek. After being diagnosed with UC and reaching remission, I've been terrified of the moment I may need to take oral antibiotics. Not only do I … Continue reading Homeopathic Methods

Pizza Crust (SCD & Paleo)

I miss pizza above all other things on the SCD. I have dabbled and attempted to make pizza substitutes using ground chicken, nut flours, or riced broccoli (I cannot have cauliflower).

Hair Care Review: Living Proof

I've recently become obsessed with Living proofB hair products. I have always had long and healthy hair - despite countless color applications and processing. Back in May of 2017, I had to cut my hair short because, I believe, the round of prednisone I was on for two months destroyed it. It could also be … Continue reading Hair Care Review: Living Proof

Cherry Cheesecake Smoothie

UC Remission Status Update

Please don't mind any misspelled words or poor grammar as I type this on my cell phone. I recently had my 6 month GI visit in April and wanted to share the results. Thus far, everything is looking good. I requested a fecal calprotectin test (which apparently I'll be paying for out of pocket), and … Continue reading UC Remission Status Update
