Naked Egg Taco, Taco Bell

BREAKING NEWS!! Today, Taco Bell nationally debuted a shell made from eggs. It’s kind of like a fried egg wrapped around their breakfast toppings. And anyone who knows me will tell you that food can be the only reason I’ll be leaving the house at seven in the morning. As hard as it was, I…

IBS: Trigger Foods vs. Bad Eating

Sometimes it can be easy to make mistakes when you have dietary restrictions. Whether you give in to temptation or you listen to someone who tells you it’s all in your head, staying true to your diet can be hard. It’s a challenge and one that we all seem to fail at some point or…

Sazon Veggie Stock, Goya

I like using stock when I cook. Sometimes it can be harder to find vegetable stock, especially if you are looking for a powder and not the broth. I found this and thought it would be good to share. It isn’t a strong flavor, so I use quite a bit. I used it in my…

Mashed Cauliflower, Hanover

I found this box of mashed cauliflower at Walmart and decided to give it a try. I had never tried it and thought that now was as good a time as any. Having never even made my own, my curiosity got the better of me. The only one available was the ranch flavor, though I…

2012 Tasca D’Almerita Regaleali Rosso, Sicily

I’m not a big drinker. In all honesty, it had been two years since I drank anything before a glass of this wine. I wasn’t sure how I would feel, so I limited myself to one glass. I wanted to make sure I wouldn’t get too drunk, and I definitely wanted to be sure that…

Shirataki Noodles, Miracle Noodle

Having IBS is hard enough, the diet restrictions can really take a toll. There were a lot of people who had questions about Shirataki noodles, so I tried them out. And here’s what happened: The instructions say to rinse the noodles for ten to fifteen seconds and then place in boiling water for two minutes….

How Do I Support Someone With IBS?

I love talking to people about IBS. I think that helping people understand what I go through is an important way to make other people with IBS feel like they aren’t alone. In some cases, it can make them feel better about their own journey or struggle. But, recently, I was asked about how someone…

Going Lacto-Vegetarian

If anyone has been keeping up with my posts, or even looked back at previous ones, they know I used to be highly carnivorous. A few months ago, I decided to go vegetarian. I was having problems digesting meat and had already been feeling kinda guilty when I saw farm animals. When I drive to…

Do I or Don’t I? (Graphic Content)

Part of my IBS flare is that I vomit for about a day. It isn’t the occasional here and there urge. It is very similar to food poisoning and needing to expel whatever is in my stomach. It gets tiring, in and of itself. Sure, I’m used to it by now. But, that doesn’t change…

BBQ Party! What Should I Do??

Being social can be a challenge, with IBS. But, you should get out once in a while. And with all of the BBQs this summer, you don’t want to miss out! So, how do you manage? Here are a few tips: Eat, first. You don’t know what you’ll be able to eat. If you know…

Fellas, You Can Skip This One…

Here it is, ladies… Yeast Infections. (warning, I’m going to talk about it…) As horrible as they are, they are something that will happen at some point or another. I had gone 36 years without one. Then, as I was recovering from the longest flare I had ever had, I found that it was my…

Flare,The Return

This was the longest flare I have ever had! A month of hell, basically. I went in to work three days in the last month and spent the entire time in bed. I don’t really recall much of that time, it was just vomiting, sleeping, migraines, weakness, trying to eat, trying to drink and hygiene….
