One of my all-time favorite meals is the Pepperoni Pizza Pasta from my Meals Made Simple cookbook. I did a video and gave the recipe on my blog if you don’t have a copy yet. For the January Whole30- sub a compliant salami for the pepperoni!

Before-After 2017

It’s hard to believe – it’s been 10 years since I was first diagnosed with my autoimmune disease, ulcerative colitis.
I have so many new people join us here daily for various reasons, and many of you aren’t aware of the reason I started my blog or embarked on a grain-free and Paleo diet.
I was diagnosed at the end of 2007 at 22, just a couple of months after marrying my high school and college “sweetheart.” You can read more here on my blog about my whole health transformation and see more photos – but my goodness what a journey this 10 years has been. We have fought together for my health, the health and well-being of our 4 (3 living) children, and our marriage – especially during the severely rough patches of my illness and losing our daughter.
I look at that picture on the right and can’t believe that’s our realty now, when the girl on the left thought I’d look and feel that way forever.
So many of you wrote in and shared your transformation stories using Paleo for your autoimmune conditions and reading them just made me grateful for my health and this online community we have built all over again.
Thank you for being here and allowing me to be part of your story. ♥️

Dreaming of this dairy-free spinach artichoke dip from my Celebrations Cookbook. I think I’m going to have to make it this weekend. If you use veggies instead of chips and food in a couple of cups of shredded chicken, it makes an awesome casserole and it’s Whole30 compliant!
