DANG IT @simpletruth4u I trusted you too much and got comfortable... did you REALLY have to put dairy in a CHICKEN PATTY?!? Now waiting to see if I'm heading to the ER. .

So, I’m awake because of my stomach. Went to the doc and she suggested a “food” journal, and a trip to the allergist. There is a good chance that a tick bite back in ‘08, is responsible for the sickness that has plagued me since July. #alphagal #nomoresteak #noredmeat left with #crapfood for meals. #fuckticks

Finding out I have a dairy allergy and eliminating it from my diet has been very hard and has made me very angry....but this dairy free #talenti is making me a more pleasant person 😍 #alphagal #dairyallergy #sogood

My 4 yo: Mommmmmm more emuuuuuuu?????? I think he was hoping for some ice cream. .
.
I tried a roast in my @instant otofficial and it was so easy and good, so I took advantage of @amaroohills sale to fill the freezer with some #emu roasts! #stockup #sale #alphagal #alphagalsafe #tasteslikebeef #dryiceforthewin #bummerpreschooler #happymomma
After being diagnosed with #alphagal I had to eliminate so many things from my life...not just dietary. From how wash my hair to what I take for pain needed to Be mammal free. I can't just pop an ibuprofen if I hurt (nor do I want to.) Thankfully I already had a membership with Doterra and have been actively using natural products for some time. The complete transition made it much easier.

Copaiba is my newest favorite oil from Doterra! They recently came out with a gel cap version that makes it easy to take it daily. The benefits are numerous but here are some of my faves:
-supports pain relief -supports decreased inflammation
-reduced anticipated emotional feelings
-healthy cell support
-nervous system support
-neuro health support
-supports insulin levels
-cardiovascular health
-and more! * if you've heard of CBD oil this is it's cousin but with superpowers.  And while it's different from CBD, it directly affects the same CB2 receptors and is a much more concentrated form. With a much more reasonable price.
⠀⠀
DoTerra's concentration level is even higher - it's one of the highest concentrated cannabinoid available. 
DoTerra sold more Copaiba in one month than they projected for the entire year! It's that GOOD!

I'd love to help you achieve a better, healthier life using DoTerra essential oils. #givethegift

Thanksgiving is saved lol. I found this vegetarian Jiffy corn bread mix at my local @walmart and it was less than 50 cents a box. Just discovered jiffy has animal fat/lard in it and I’m allergic. Do I need the extra carbs? No, but corn bread casserole=yum. #thanksgiving #cornbread #jiffy #vegetarian #alphagal #alphagalallergy #lardfree
This little critter permanently changed my life a few years ago. I go trekking a lot in tick prone areas and on one trip in the West Country I got loads of tick bites. One of them was particularly red and itchy for nearly two months afterwards. I also found myself waking up in the middle of the night itching like crazy, having difficulty breathing and covered in hives. It took ages to work out what was causing it and during that time I had a terrible reaction once during a barbecue. But that was a big clue. Eventually an allergy professor sent some of my blood to a specialist lab in the US and the result came back weeks later that I had a condition called Alphagal. This is an allergy to mammalian meat (beef, lamb, pork etc) caused by the tick bite. There is a substance in tick saliva called Galactose-alpha 1,3 galactose (Alphagal) which is also in red meat. This substance is not found in birds, fish, humans or old world primates. So, for more than 6 years I’ve only been able to I eat chicken (I eat a lot at @nandosuk !) and seafood. I’ve been caught out badly a couple of times eating out where food contamination can be a risk. I could also eat baboons or humans so I’d be ok as a zombie. But veganism is starting to look appealing. Happy #humpday🐫 #wednesdaywisdom #alphagal #tick #

Hidden kale and cauliflower chicken stew. I wouldn't call Z a picky eater, but he definitely has his preferences. Once of which lately is not liking cooked greens. I simmered bone broth,cauliflower,onion,garlic,baby kale and then immersion blended it. After that I added cooked chicken,carrots,potatoes,celery and more garlic. Now it's simmering on the stove and smelling soo good. Bring it on cold season, I've got soup for dayyyysss.

What do turkeys do for thanksgiving, why do we eat them, where do they live, what are the babies called..
This is #JackHenryWilder’s latest schoolwork.  Now, excuse me while I go cry into my delicious giblet gravy. #alphagal

It’s a slow cooked, Brunswick stew kinda night. #rva #homecooking #brunswick #stew #alphagal
What a bummer to discover this has animal fat in it! I make cornbread casserole with this every year for Thanksgiving at work and at home. I’ve made this the last three years and never thought to look at the ingredients. Always check your labels! I’m doubtful my local @walmart has this vegetarian version and they are out online. #alphagalallergy #alphagal #foodallergies #vegetarian #porkallergy #beefallergy #thanksgiving #cornbread

Pretty dang proud of myself as I have never fried fish before - these #friedsmelts turned out delish!! Despite my diet radically changing due to my #alphagalallergy - I’m getting to experience lots of new yummy foods 🤤

My first @amaroohills #emu roast in the @instantpotofficial  IT tastes like beef!  To the point I had to really think about if I really used emu. Simple sear with a little #evoo and #saltandpepper then add onions, celery, carrots, potatoes and vegetable broth. 20 mins on a high pressure and viola!

The weather has turn more consistently cold and Thanksgiving is only two weeks away. There's lots of change on the horizon. The end of my 30th year on this planet is drawing to a close. I can't help but look back on 2019 and see a tremendous amount of change. It was all worth it. Every struggle, every panic attack, every failure, and what seemed like an unbroken cycle of bad decisions. Monday a new chapter starts. A new job. A professional prep cook the objective. To learn as much as possible to eventually earn a line cook position and then maybe, just maybe head cook. It's scary and nothing is ever wrapped up in a perfect bow. But I am now, more than ever, grateful for the journey I am on and the opportunity to follow my dreams and do what I love most. Cook. .

First snow of the year! I wish this was enough to kill all of the ticks but ticks survive brief cold weather 😞 it’s a pretty snow at least! It reminds me of a @hallmarkchannel Christmas movie !! #snow #missouri #alphagal #alphagalallergy #ticks #hallmarkchristmasmovies
How fun! A Gal with Alpha-Gal is featured in the November issue of Arkansas Life Magazine!! Thanks so much @arkansaslife for wonderful article, and for helping spread the word about #alphagal. 💚

I'm SO excited for this weekend and to see if the other girls love it as much as we do!! I always have a few little tweaks that make the difference, like coconut oil instead of butter, honey instead of sugar and some cinnamon to top it off. I found the mix in the pancake isle~~ Kodiak cake ~~they are all sorts of flavors and on the side there is this YUMMY muffin recipe. I WANTED TO SHARE because I know I have had LOTS OF BUSY MOMMAS who follow me and these took me less than 10 minutes to make and are a WAY HEALTHIER option than donuts or poptarts!!

Man...the things you do for your kids. Ace and Ethan wanted a steak, which alpha-gal no longer let's me have, so they rarely eat steak, or any beef and pork, because I do the cooking around these parts. But tonight I gave in. Brandon's at work so I had to grill it. Noooooo! It looks and smells JUST LIKE I REMEMBER!! And, because of my poor planning, we have no chicken, turkey or fish in the house. But, I've got roasted potatoes and eggs! #alphagal #struggles

I thought it was pretty great to see this sign on a recent walk. I’ve never seen a sign that warns of ticks on any of my hikes or visits to nature centers. My allergy to mammal meat and byproducts is from a tick bite. I make sure to wear repellant now and check for ticks right away. #ticks #alphagal #alphagalallergy #meatallergy #hiking #missouri  #foodallergies #nature

The holiday season is fast approaching, which can be overwhelming enough for the average person. Throw in a food allergy like #alphagal, and it's enough to make you want to throw in the towel. 
This month I'll be sharing some of my favorite AG-friendly 'gathering' recipes...perfect for your next dinner party, happy hour, Friendsgiving, however your tribe gathers.

Did anyone see any teal pumpkins on Halloween? I didn’t but I think it’s great that @target sold these ! I didn’t see them for sale anywhere else. Teal pumpkins show support for children with food allergies and offer candy alternatives. With alpha gal you have to be careful with gelatin in candy and some can’t have the dairy or the sugar. Unfortunately I seem able to eat it all except candy with gelatin 😂 but I’m on a #diet #halloween #foodallergies #alphagal #alphagalallergy #tealpumpkinproject #target

Julia Child continues to inspire me every day. Regardless of what your diet is I've always believed food is the great connector of people. The common space we all have. Julia knew and spoke this truth and I hope I can encourage people to love food and love people, especially themselves. .

Sometimes alpha gal doesn’t win. I grabbed a couple cans of Off at @walmart the other day for only $1 a piece. 👍🏻 I wear bug spray where I live all the time, Just to go on a walk around the property or feed our fish at the pond. No more tick bites please! This is where I got my tick bites that gave me this allergy. #alphagal #alphagalallergy #tickbite #tickssuck #meatallergy #country #countrylife #rural

I have been feeling exhausted lately, and not just I have four kids and teach part-time tired. The kind of tired where getting out of bed after 7-8hrs of sleep is hard and I could just lie down on the floor while making dinner. So, trying to take more time for self care, scheduling a Dr visit and working on upping my iron especially. #Alphagal #alphagalsafe #vegan #vitamins #toomuchhustle #selfcare @megafood #momlife #sotired

Jag har gjort en ny sats #ankprosciutto. Jag band upp två av ankbrösten och de andra två gjorde jag som vanligt med. Om ca fyra veckor har vi ett resultat. De har redan legat i salt och kryddor i två veckor. I dag sköljde jag dem, torkade av och band upp hälften, lade i mörningspåsar från @lundgrensskafferi. Nu ligger de i kylen. #köttallergi

A new batch of #duckprosciutto. I tied two of them up tightly to see if it will improve texture. The other two I just did like I always have. In about four weeks we should have a result. They have been curing for two weeks. Today I rinsed them, patted dry and tied two of the duck breasts up. Then I put them in Umai dry bags and vacuum sealed. They are now in our fridge. #alphagal #alphagalallergy #alphagalfriendly #alphagalfriendlyfood

I recently had a test done that showed low magnesium & vit B12 levels. I normally don’t have much luck at @walmart for supplements bc of the animal ingredients.

Let us count all the ways I broke the alpha gal allergy rules for the work Halloween luncheon. 1. Eating food prepared by others=contaminated containers/utensils. So many possibilities. 2. Dairy dairy dairy. Milk in potatoes. Prob butter. Cheesy rice. Cheesy noodles and found out cheese in pasta. In the cake balls? Not sure. I did bring my own safe healthy chicken breast instead of the fried chicken. A few minutes later: tummy-ache and sick! While it wasn’t a full blown reaction my stomach didn’t like something and was yelling at me. I should have known better I didn’t eat all of that! Lol. #foodallergies #dairy #alphagal #mammalallergy #alphagalallergy #diet #backtothediet #lostweight #halloween #potluck

Traveling has been a huge goal for me. When I got diagnosed with AlphaGal Allergy along with several other allergies I thought my dream of traveling was over. Then I realized that if I have the dream then God is willing to fulfill it. There is a promise in scripture that says; “He will give you the deepest desires of your heart.” So! I prepared to travel and invested in a @paktbags. I had no idea when or if I would ever get to use it. Needless to say I’m getting ready to use it soon! It will be my medications bag for my flight. With AlphaGal it’s medically necessary to carry personal items that are vegan because if not I’ll have a reaction. I’m hoping my personal items pass as medications through TSA. I’m planning on getting a letter from my allergist explaining that non vegan shampoo etc. can send me into anaphylactic shock. So! Prayers please while I prep for my trips. God is so good and so is Mary and the angels and the saints so ... 📿🙏🏽💥! It’ll happen. I know because I know He who grants it all. ❤️ #paktbags #vegan #alphagal #medicalbag #fueltobefabulous
Traveling has been a huge goal for me. When I got diagnosed with AlphaGal Allergy along with several other allergies I thought my dream of traveling was over. Then I realized that if I have the dream then God is willing to fulfill it. There is a promise in scripture that says; “He will give you the deepest desires of your heart.” So! I prepared to travel and invested in a @paktbags. I had no idea when or if I would ever get to use it. Needless to say I’m getting ready to use it soon! It will be my medications bag for my flight.

I foolishly tried another brand of peanuts and felt sick a few minutes later. @kraft_brand didn’t really give me answers about their sugars being filtered with bone char. Not very helpful. So it could be the sugar or cross contamination from gelatin in their facility I suppose. #alphagal #alphagalallergy #kraft #planters #bonechar #foodallergies #redmeatallergy #needprotein
I was looking up dishes incorporating meatballs for work the other day. I came up with a recipe for Italian Meatball Soup. I couldn't taste it but the reaction of my taste testers let me know that it was good. 
For those of you who haven't seen my stories or who may be new (hi) I have an #alphagal allergy which means I can't eat any mammal meat or mammal derived ingredients. As a non-vegan cook this means I don't just abstain from our food because of the animal products ethically but also because of my allergy. 
Something told me that this would be really good veganized and let me tell you I am blessed with a decent intuition. 
I used the #gardein #meatlessballs and #banza #chickpeapasta. I'm thinking about writing the recipe on the blog so stay tuned.

Broccoli!! This was an easy favorite of mine Pre #alphagal. Roast chopped dry broccoli heads with salt and a splash of lemon. (Add fresh Garlic cloves to make it even better) and roast at 425* for 15-20 mins. #delicious I’m actually eating this an as afternoon snack!

I finally made homemade #pizza. @traderjoes dough is #vegan and the pesto is 👌, my first try of @miyokos_kitchen mozz was good - much better than other brands I’ve tried but still not as good as full dairy mozz. (Not sure if anything is) And topped off with a bunch of sautéed mushrooms, asparagus, tomatoes and broccoli. Heaven!  Only other thing I need is a wood fires pizza oven 😜

#autumn🍁 is the perfect time for roasted butternut squash with rigatoni, spinach, chicken, roasted red onion, and fried sage leaves. #alphagal friendly comfort food that is #dairyfree!

Increasing my knowledge of Lyme Disease and tickborne co-infections this weekend. Today we had doctors from Stanford, Columbia University, MIT, Rutgers and Johns Hopkins educate us on genetics, proteomics, Alpha-gal, the Long-horned tick and a whole lot more! Tons of information! #lymeadvocate #lyme #lymedisease #thelymeeducator #anneknowsoils #ticks #tickbornediseases #proteomics #alphagal

@wegmans AND @traderjoes WITHOUT my kids!  My husband is awesome and I am old 😜😜. Had time to actually read labels and just take my time. It was delightful. ❤️

Our #veganbreakfast this morning was a great #arkansas breakfast gone vegan from my childhood. #tofuscramble, #HarmlessHam, and #dropbiscuits. It was like sitting in my Aunt Linda's kitchen again. If you'd like to see more watch my stories. ❤

It’s a good thing my goal is not to be the most fit woman on the internet - because there are some amazing ones out there. But, I do love to lift. And I don’t mind being the millionth person to try and convince you to try it. Normal girl here - full time job, more laundry than I can keep up with and an affinity towards romance novels. So if I can do this and like it, what the heck makes you think you can’t? #mombod #fitmom #momswholift #healthywifehappylife #homeworkouts #wellnessjourney #alphagal #hipdysplasiasurvivor #andthenshedrankcoffee

Some days having Alpha Gal is easy. Some days it’s fun to experiment with new vegan products and new recipes. Some days are not easy though. Some days are filled with Benadryl and pain and itching and puking and epi pens. Some days you cry a lot. Some days it’s overwhelming to deal with the medicines, the doctors, the hurting, the never ending bullshit. Sometimes it’s just too much. But, like I tell my kids every night, “tomorrow’s a brand new day.” Every bad day ends and so will this one. So I’m gonna go crawl back under the covers now and try to sleep until it doesn’t hurt any more. Tomorrow will be a new day. #tickssuck #tickbornediseases #alphagal #alphagalallergy #foodallergy #foodallergylife #epipen #foodallergyawareness #benadryl #benadrylismybestfriend #ticks #allergy #foodallergies

Dried apples, homemade bread with coconut oil, and duck bone broth. #alphagal #breakfast #alphagalsafe #mammalfreediet
I’m a little awkward. I find it easier to not be in a crowd. I relate to book characters from previous centuries. But I also think I’m a really good mom (most days!). I can make bad ass lasagna. And I want the very best for everyone. Coaching is way outside of my comfort zone on a lot of levels, but it also feels so right. I want to see people thrive and post pictures of themselves over time where their smile just gets bigger and bigger. And I want to push myself to be their biggest cheerleader. If you’re on my team and you are trying (even a tiny bit) I promise to be there for you. We will work together and hold each other accountable.

Excited my local “regular” @target is expanding its @sweetearthfoods section!  This used to only be the top 2 shelves. I’ve found their vegan options to be #delicious.

Here’s a picture of my veggies from last night. While I don’t think they were the culprit that led to me breaking out in hives, I figured they made for a better picture than my actual hives. I don’t know what I ate that triggered a reaction. Alpha Gal Syndrome is annoying. I’ll post something interior-related tomorrow. Today, I’m groggy from the Benadryl and whining. In happier news- It’s hump day, y’all! The weekend will be here soon!

I made mashed potatoes. The AG leftovers are mine. The orange lid container has delicious @thepioneerwoman style taters with loads of dairy. Ever mention how much #Ihateticks #alphagal #alphagalsafe #foodallergies #leftovers #donteatmyfood #foodlabels
Pan seared duck breast, roasted rosemary potatoes and carrots, ginger citrus duck sauce. #rva #homecooking #alphagal #duck
Today's dinner. Duck breast and zucchini fried in the duck fat and sprinkle of parm. I love duck! With my alpha-gal allergy any beef, venison, pork, any thing that grows fur will land me in the ER fighting for my life in an anaphylactic shock. Yes I have to do keto without bacon and bacon fat! But duck has a meat like texture that I love since I use to be a big steak eater pre tick bite. Ticks are dicks.
