Author: LET US ALL EAT CAKE & THE RA DIET COOKBOOK. Healing Bone Broth founder. Overcoming Autoimmune Disease w/The RA Recovery Plan👇🏻👇🏻

Friday night out with my love @chriswmusgrove #datenight @shopsatclearfork
I love this cute little cake that I made for @chriswmusgrove ’s son Benton last week. All the decoration is chocolate modeling paste, not fondant, so its super yummy. I created a chocolate version of Benton’s dog, “Catfish”, busting out of his cake. Really fun! Many of you probably don’t know that before I developed rheumatoid arthritis and before I became a holistic nutritionist and founded my wellness company, A Well-Nourished Life, I was a classically trained pastry chef and cake designer. I was making cakes on Food Network, and I wrote the best selling gluten-free cake book Let Us All Eat Cake. I rarely make cakes anymore, but when I do, it’s for special friends and family and I love every minute of it! Swipe through the photos to see some of the cakes from my past including some fun sculpted pieces and a couple from my cookbook. Enjoy, and have a sweet day! #LetUsAllEatCake #BirthdayCake #Yummy #awellnourishedlife

Mornings in the mountains are my favorite. With afternoons and evenings falling close behind 😉 #crestedbutte #Colorado #rockymountainmorning #cbartsfest
Happy nature nerd right here 😊 have my feet in an icy cold Rocky Mountain stream, my face in the sun, and the sounds of birds and rustling aspens in my ears. And a bunch of rocks in my pocket 😂 #naturenerd #rockymountains #happyplace

Is anyone else sensitive to pressure changes in the weather? I am so sensitive, when these storm systems move into the area my head crushes, seriously like a giant robot gorilla is squeezing my brain. Not fun! Essential oils have become my go to remedies. I don’t like to take pain meds and I have found that they don’t help anyway. I love the doTerra Past Tense roller ball, I roll it all along my hairline from my temples around to the back of my head. I keep it in the hairline, especially near the temples, because the hair prevents the oil from migrating onto the skin where it can irritate your eyes. And I use the Art Naturals peppermint oil in three different ways: I put two drops in my palms, rub them together, and then inhale the oil deeply several times. Then I rub that oil into my neck and shoulders and the back of my skull. Lastly, I put a sauce pan of water on the stove and add 4-6 drops of oil, bring the water to a simmer and cover my head with a light towel and then inhale the oil vapor and steam for several minutes. I can’t tell you how much this helps! What other natural remedies do you use for headaches? I’d love to know, please share in the comments! #Headaches #Holistic #EssentialOils @artnaturals @doterra

We checked into the cutest @Airbnb in Austin y’all, it’s called Casa Soco and it’s precious! So much attention to detail- water carafes and hotel robes in every bedroom, loads of fresh towels, sharp (I mean sharp!) knives in the kitchen, and the comfiest (and cutest) throw pillows throughout the house. Gah, can I live here? 😁 #ad #sponsored #Atxcasas @atxcasas #austin #atx #casasoco #airbnb
Guys I’m craving this Vanilla Chia Mango Parfait today, it’s perfect for this hot weather. I'm taking a tip from my own book and making a big batch of chia pudding today so I can mix up different parfaits over the weekend (yep, I know how to party hard, don’t I? 😂) This one, on page 38 of The RA Diet Cookbook, is first up! #theRAdiet #theRAdietCookbook #foodismedicine #yum #breakfast #chia #plantprotein
Does anyone else feel this way about their green juice? 💞😂#fairydustandhearts #lovemyjuice #theradiet #foodismedicine #RArecoveryplan
#RAtip On the RA Diet what you DO eat is equally as important as the the foods you avoid. Choosing a variety of nutrient-dense, anti-inflammatory foods daily is key to success. WALNUTS are one of my top foods for rheumatoid arthritis. Walnuts are a great vegan source of anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids (ALA), just 1/4 cup contains more than 100% of your daily requirement. Walnuts are also a significant source of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory phytonutrients, manganese, calcium, potassium, selenium and zinc. A small handful contains 4 grams of easily digestible, vegan protein. Walnuts make a quick, tasty, and portable snack food, and are delicious sprinkled over salads, oatmeal, or yogurt. Keep walnuts in the freezer to prolong shelf life and avoid rancidity. My favorite way to use walnuts is in green salads or sprinkled over roasted veggies (especially cauliflower!). PS, walnuts have cancer-fighting properties and are tops for brain health and heart health. So seriously, you need to eat walnuts! For a yummy, healing (and GORGEOUS) RA Diet treat featuring walnuts, follow the link in my bio for my No-Bake Dragon Fruit Bars. #RArecoveryplan #rheumatoidarthritis #rawarrior #awellnourishedlife #holisticnutritionist

Yesterday was my birthday, I turned 49. Whoop! It was a big day, full of fun and love and celebration. Not just for me for my birthday, but also for my son last night celebrating a senior tradition at his school. So many feels, I think I have an emotional hangover today! And can we talk about these flowers? Gah, GORGEOUS! Birthdays for me are always a time of reflection. This past year has been huge in many ways. So much has changed and continues to change in my world, I am constantly reminding myself to go with the flow and to be open. Lessons keep coming. The first four months of 2018 have provided a lot of shake ups and challenges and changes. Also a lot of joy and love. From caring for my mother through a health crisis to watching my son in his final months of high school getting ready to go off to college, 2018 so far has been BIG. Throw in there my entry into the online dating world (love you, @bumble ), running 3 businesses, and my daily struggle to manage my RA, and you’ve got one humdinger of a year so far. Can I get a vacation already? 😂 Life is never dull, it’s always changing and growing and flowing. Ups and downs, good times and bad, I’ve learned to welcome it all and to look for the blessings in every little thing. So here goes the final year of my forties my friends, let’s see what’s in store. I’m already planning the party for my 50th next year, and you are all invited! Cheers! #birthday #thisis49 #canwetalkabouttheseflowers
