We feel you, @thisthatbeauty ! THE STRUGGLE IS REAL. #repost "Makes perfect sense that I’d post this after 4:00. 🕓Because, REAL TALK: some days, it’s 4:00 or gasp, later...before I realize I haven’t eaten 🤦🏾‍♀️(or I haven’t eaten nutritiously - is coffee a meal?). Maybe it’s partly because I’m caring for my little one or partly because I run my own business...but whatever it is — I find it challenging to prioritize my nutritional needs. I come last — and that’s gotta stop!🚫"
[Image by: Andrew Archer] ------------------------------------------ So some of you know that I have been having major stomach issues. I haven't been able to eat without getting sick for awhile now. I had a doctor's appointment on Wednesday so I wanted to give you guys a an update on how that went. ---- So I had a colonoscopy & endoscopy a few months ago with a different GI because my normal one was on maternity leave and he was out of the loop and he told me everything was normal and fine and we never really followed up. It turns out, however, that my EoE has gotten out of control and is really severe. The diagnostic criteria for EoE is 15 eosinaphils and I had 75 at the time of the biopsy! She told me that the EoE was probably what is causing all the problems I'm having so she's putting me on a new medication. Only some types of EoE respond to medications, but if mine does respond to it it can actually reverse some of the damage. So hopefully that will help and then we'll have to do another endoscopy in a couple of months to see if it is working. She said it should start working any time from a couple of days from now to in a couple of weeks but until then to just eat what I can and use protein shakes so we're gonna order Kate Farms and hopefully that will help until the meds kick in. The protein shakes didn't work, they only make it worse, so I'm just trying to eat what I can until the medicine kicks in. My doctor is concerned about how bad it is and how it could be causing dismotility and could cause scar tissue which would not be good. It's frustrating because if the other doctor had told me the correct thing and treated it right away we may not be at the point where we are. I'm just praying that this new medication will help and things can get under control.

"With my gfJules Pancake/Waffle Mix, a little applesauce & my partner @liveowyn plant-based vanilla protein, it’ll be easy to whisk & bake off in my waffle iron. By using @liveowyn drinks in place of milk, each waffle has an extra 4 grams of protein, plus Omega 3s, fiber, amino acids, probiotics & even greens (but you’d never taste them). 😊" - @gfjules #regram
"My girls think the OWYN protein drinks taste like milkshakes. I agree 😬 and I love how nutritious they are." - @glutenfreepalate #regram
Because @chadkackert and puppies! #regram
Does anyone else find that with all these restrictions, making a cohesive meal is sometimes too difficult? Today’s brunch includes lots of coffee, golden beets, a burger and avocado with hot sauce 🥑 #eoe #eosinaphilicesophagitis #wheatfree #eggfree #dairyfree #glutenfree #stopthechoking
We wish we were here too. . .sand between your toes, wind in your hair, OWYN in your hands.
I wouldn’t know what to call this salad but it pretty much combines every thing I love into one dish! #eoe #eosinaphilicesophagitis #dairyfree #soyfree #nutfree #wheatfree #stopthechoking #eatyourveggies
Bachelorette finale and dessert 💕 raspberries are by far my favorite fruit and so delicious chocolate coconut milk yogurt tastes just like chocolate pudding! #eoe #eosinaphilicesophagitis #dairyfree #nutfree #soyfree #stopthechoking #sodeliciousdairyfree
The only thing that would make this dinner better is a nice big glass of cab 🍷 some elimination diets advise you to stay away from all alcohol, I personally am not and indulge in a glass or 3 from time to time. I have a big organic chem final tomorrow morning so I’ve fueled up with a nice ribeye, green beans and smashed potatoes with caramelized onions and roasted garlic 😋 #eoe #eosinaphilicesophagitis #stopthechoking #treatyoself #dairyfree #wheatfree
These snacks are the bomb 💥 I recently discovered the allergy-friendly section of my local grocery store and found these guys. They are super addicting, taste great on their own but I’ve also put them on salads this week as a substitute for croutons! #eoe #eosinaphilicesophagitis #wheatfree #glutenfree #stopthechoking
"100% plant-based vegan, gluten-free and Top 8 allergen-free, with Omega3s, probiotics, greens and trace minerals. OWYN isn’t just for athletes — it’s for anyone on the go who wants balanced nutrition and sustained energy without anything artificial; in other words, Only What You Need (OWYN). Cool name, huh?" - @gfjules #regram
All natural and all delicious. Just how @jacquelynnoelle loves her Vanilla OWYN.
Strength grows in the moments when you think you can’t keep going on but keep going anyway. . . . There have been many times on my journey, especially with my son, when I thought “I just can’t do this anymore.” . . . But as I look back over the last five years I can see, we kept going anyway-and to that I am thankful for God’s strength to rely on. . . . Things can be hard - relationally, parenting, spiritually, physically, emotionally, in your business or even in your overall goals. I urge you, keep pressing on. . . . You can do this, you’ve got it in you💗 . . . #keepgoing #yougotthis #eoe #eosinaphilicesophagitis #keeppushing #winthewar #bebold #befree #bebrave #amanabeautyessentials
Feeling festive and feeling full after this taco salad 💃🏼 I used McCormick’s gluten free taco seasoning, loaded up on guac and salsa, and called it a day. Couldn’t tell there was cheese missing but definitely missed having a little sour cream. #eoe #eosinaphilicesophagitis #dairyfree #wheatfree #stopthechoking
This lunch was totally amazing and the people over at tea n tapas were so accommodating! I made a bowl with coconut cilantro rice, grilled pork, pickled carrots and onions, cucumbers and jalapeños 😋 the staff was so great and dealt with all my questions very professionally. Though they said the dressing was safe I ended up not needing it because this bowl was so flavorful already! #eoe #eosinaphilicesophagitis #soyfree #nutfree #stopthechoking

Sometimes you just need some pancakes 🥞, happy week 4 to me! Been eating and drinking many of the same things and honestly I’ve been feeling great! I haven’t choked but sometimes do have that hard to swallow feeling because of the strictures. These pancakes are from Enjoy life which is top 8 allergy free. #nutfree #dairyfree #eggfree #soyfree #glutenfree #eoe #eosinaphilicesophagitis #stopthechoking #enjoylife
Priorities. We will leave it at that.
Drink your greens! This smoothie has 2.5 cups of spinach/kale, coconut milk, flaxseeds, coconut shreds and a whole avocado 🥑 #eoe #eosinaphilicesophagitis #dairyfree #soyfree #nutfree #stopthechoking #drinkyourgreens
We go the extra mile to test for the top 8 allergens so that you can count on OWYN to take you to your extra mile and beyond.
These are so good! I love dark chocolate, but sometimes I need a little something to cut the bitterness. Free2b clearly states they are top 12 free and Theo is not only free of allergens but is fair trade! #eoe #eosinaphilicesophagitis #dairyfree #soyfree #eggfree #wheatfree #nutfree #theochocolate #free2b #stopthechoking
Not quite pasta but it’ll due, especially covered in meat sauce! 🍝🍝🍝🍝 #eoe #eosinaphilicesophagitis #wheatfree #dairyfree #eggfree #stopthechoking
"YOU GUYS KNOW,...I’m a shake snob! Aaron brought me home one of these babes (because he knew I would love it) and Yup. I was HOOKED. + When you find a (to-go) shake 🍦that tastes delicious, is perfect for health freaks like me and has (excuse my language) no added shiz....it becomes your (go-to) and you STOCK your fridge." #regram @britneyegner
Açaí for breakfast! I blended my packet with half an avocado for extra fat and pulsed some dried coconut, cocoa and flaxseed for a crunchy granola-alternative! #eoe #eosinaphilicesophagitis #dairyfree #wheatfree #antioxidantoverload #stopthechoking
Meat sauce and smash 😋 #eoe #eosinaphilicesophagitis #stopthechoking
Easy breakfast this morning to kick off week 3 full of antioxidants, fiber and polyphenols! I used a berry mix, kale, spinach, avocado and coconut milk. #eoe #eosinaphilicesophagitis #dairyfree #stopthechoking #halfwaythere #livingonaprayer

By far my favorite snack! It’s salty, sweet, crunchy and filling 😋 I used sunflower spread instead of butter(less sugar) which was honestly fine because of how sweet these raspberries were #eoe #eosinaphilicesophagitis #dairyfree #wheatfree #nutfree #stopthechoking
Did you know, OWYN is free of dairy, soy, gluten, egg, peanuts, tree nuts and fish? @foodallergy #repost @gfjules

Lemon garlic chicken thighs and a whole lot of fried artichokes for dinner! The artichokes were fried in just a little olive oil and topped off with a bit of salt. I made an aioli using Sir Kensington’s fabanaise and honestly it tastes just like the real thing without any of the risks! #eoe #eosinaphilicesophagitis #soyfree #dairyfree #eggfree #wheatfree #stopthechoking
Breakfast potatoes and a hamburger! I seasoned these burgers with paprika, garlic, cayenne pepper and coarse sea salt last night and enjoyed it so much that I just had to have another one for breakfast 😋 #eoe #eosinaphilicesophagitis #dairyfree #wheatfree #eggfree #soyfree #stopthechoking
Sure would love me a bacon cheese burger right now, guess I’ll just have to settle for a bacon avocado burger instead 🤷🏼‍♀️ #eoe #eosinaphilicesophagitis #dairyfree #stopthechoking #wheatfree
Strawberry and Banana fields forever.

Lunch was pretty filling after a very active morning 🚴🏼‍♀️🚴🏼‍♀️ rotisserie chicken, avocado, bacon, cucumbers and red peppers on this salad today! Dressing was olive oil, garlic, lemon and a little salt and pepper! #eoe #eosinaphilicesophagitis #dairyfree #soyfree #nutfree #stopthechoking
I love a cappuccino or 3 in the morning but I’ve found with certain non-dairy milks you don’t get that consistent creamy thick foam you get in a tradition cappuccino, insert collagen. I don’t know what it is but when I added a scoop of this into my creamer and frothed it, my foam stayed puffy right to the last drop. Helps my coffee stay the way I like it and it’s good for my bones and joints too 💪🏼☕️ #eoe #eosinaphilicesophagitis #dairyfree #nutfree #soyfree #stopthechoking
For dinner 3 nights in a row, pulled pork! Tonight I added an avocado to the dressing of my broccoli slaw and found cassava wraps at Whole Foods, so good!! Cassava flour is made from yucca and a totally safe flour for those top-8ers/allergen free people out there. My dad uses cassava flour to make bread and we’ve found it’s consistency is most like “regular” bread you can buy at the store! #eoe #eosinaphilicesophagitis #dairyfree #eggfree #wheatfree #nutfree #soyfree #stopthechoking
Today I attempted allergen-free mayo! I can’t say I have a winner yet, the coconut flavor is pretty overwhelming, but it did add a nice creaminess to my cole slaw which I’ll be having with pulled pork tonight! #eoe #eosinaphilicesophagitis #diaryfree #soyfree #eggfree #stopthechoking
