A vegan/healthy snack find on Amazon

A vegan/healthy snack find on Amazon

Good morning and Happy Friday. I think I should be saying TGIF. I didn’t do much this week but I still feel a little drained. I am currently looking at the water which is glistening in the sun. Looks beautiful but I know it’s cold outside. It is still so wonderful to look at especially since it’s been cloudy most of this week. So far there has been no movement on the plots for that hotel that will block my…

My Sakara Journey begins

My Sakara Journey begins

I was sent an email by my beautiful cousin about this company I never heard of Sakara. She told me I needed to check them out. Anything my cousin recommends is usually worth looking into, so I checked it out. https://www.sakara.com/. It was everything I’ve been looking for in my vegan lifestyle. I wanted a really good food delivery because let’s be honest cooking with progressing multiple sclerosis is becoming harder and harder. My meals become repetitious because it’s my…

Sleeping, cooking and birthday wishes

Sleeping, cooking and birthday wishes

I slept yesterday for 8 hours straight. No bathroom breaks. I can’t even remember the last time that happened. Eight hours of straight, uninterrupted sleep. I didn’t believe it was possible anymore. I wonder if my new heating/ac unit had anything to do with it. Probably not since I don’t think that has any effect on the bladder. I’ve been so tired. I don’t even want to write about it anymore. The topic itself I find exhausting. I rather talk…

I’m a good tired

I’m a good tired

I’m tired. I start a lot of blogs like that, don’t I? I have put myself through an entire month of working out every single day. Was it worth it? Hell yeah!!! I love challenging myself through workouts. I always did.  Of course everything is completely modified because of my MS, but it’s still incredibly hard for me. On top of that though, I was busy this week. I had my friend from the building up visiting. I had…

Plant based eating with multiple sclerosis

Plant based eating with multiple sclerosis

A few weeks ago I made the decision to go back to plant based eating. Going back to Plant based eating.

I have their app and use a majority of their recipes. I also love Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis (OMS) https://overcomingms.org/recovery-program/diet. This is also a great site focused on fruits and vegetables, whole grains and…

WW Peanut Stew with Spinach and Sweet Potatoes

WW Peanut Stew with Spinach and Sweet Potatoes

Made this soup from WW, formally weight watchers, the other day. It was really good. A nice hearty filling soup perfect for the winter weather. I substituted regular potatoes for sweet potatoes because I’m not a fan as well as natural almond butter for the peanut butter. This might be a new favorite. Ingredients: Cooking spray 2 Onions, medium size chopped One Green Pepper, chopped 1/2 Lb Sweet Potatoes, peeled and chopped into 1/2 cubes 2 Carrots, chopped  2…
