This is part 2 in my three part series on my Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis Disease. These posts are very lengthy and extremely in-depth, but since battling thyroid problems I personally have found these types of posts to be the most helpful. I pray it would spark hope in you and not fear, but as a warning I do discuss a little bit about my miscarriage. If that may trigger any fear or trauma in you, maybe put a pin in this and come back at another time. Grab your coffee, friends. Here we go.
Since discovering I have Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis Disease in March, I’ve shared the ups and downs of my health journey and have received many questions along the way. I think the best way to share about my current standing with Hashimoto’s is to start from the beginning. Since I want to be thorough for those of you also walking through the same thing as me I’m breaking up the story into three parts-mostly to spare your eyeballs. Get ready for lots of reading, friends.
Whether you’ve found yourself nursing a baby that can’t tolerate dairy, needing a break from the indulgence of quarantine or need to clean up your diet to help with fatigue, mood swings or skin problems-I’ve got your back. Here is a round up of some of my favorite posts for clean eating.
“How do you still fit in regular jeans?”
I currently eat a very restricted diet-this isn’t new. I have thankfully moved out of the most restrictive phase and have now entered what will be my way of life. In the past year I’ve gone from being someone who ate a plant-based diet and avoided gluten for the most part to reintroducing animal protein and eating a fully Paleo diet. It’s been a JOURNEY, friends. And while I’ve prioritized clean eating and exclusively eating organic, as someone with an auto-immune disease I really needed to take the next step to eliminate things I never realized were just as bad as the obvious no-no’s I cut out years ago.
I’ve been talking quite a bit about food and using food for healing over on Instagram but I’ve still received so many questions about what a day of eating looks like for me. I’d say my diet is a mixture of Whole30, Paleo and AIP as I continue to walk through healing for Hashimoto’s.
I’m at the point now where I would prefer to eat my own food than eating at a restaurant which is truly a gift! Here’s a peek into one day of meals and snacks these days.
