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…

My family my support

My family my support

Good Morning to everyone. I think I’m officially through all my infusion side effects now. I’m happy to say I’m doing ok. Now I’m waiting for the New York weather to start resembling normal weather for the end of September. I’m ready to turn of the AC and bring out my comfy sweatshirts I love so much. I find the fact that it is humid very annoying. I love sweating during my workouts but hate sweating when I’m not doing…

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 wanted to get away from processed foods that once again started to fill me refrigerator and cabinets. I follow closely with Forks over Knives. https://www.forksoverknives.com/. 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…

Once again joined WW, formally known as weight watchers

Once again joined WW, formally known as weight watchers

Wow I can’t believe in 10 days another year begins. 2020!! I guess it has to be easier than writing 2019. I do better with even numbers and even better when my 22 is in a number I’m writing. New Years resolutions, I don’t do them because I don’t need a specific day of the year to start something to make a change of habit. If I want something to change it isn’t the date that is going to make…

Unpredictable multiple sclerosis

Unpredictable multiple sclerosis

My neurology visit was uneventful yesterday for the most part. He did a quick exam and during the exam he said I always forget how myelopathic your MS has always been. He always says that to me. First I had a remember what myelopathic meant and then I remembered what he meant. Myelopathic is referring to the spinal cord. What my doctor means is that my MS is in my spinal cord not in my brain. All my symptoms fall…

A very happy birthday

A very happy birthday

My birthday was really nice. My friend Angie actually surprise me with vegan muffins and a candle at my nail salon. That was a very embarrassing display but a very sweet one. I think she was more surprised when I explained to her that I haven’t been even eating vegan. I change diet so often who the hell could keep up anyway. That was my first candle of the day. Good thing she gave me that because my second candle…
