Blueberry Basil Anti-inflammatory Smoothie 🌿
1/4 c blueberries
6 large basil leaves
2 cubes of frozen lemon juice
1/2” cube of ginger root
1 scoop Collagen Protein @vitalproteins
1 c Unsweetened Almond Milk @califiafarms
4 ice cubes
I thought it was a nice combo of sour and sweet. Soothing combo of antioxidants and anti-inflammatories for gut health or overall wellness.
We have a lemon tree, so I usually juice a bunch when they are ripe and keep them in pre-made ice cubes in the freezer for smoothies and homemade lemonade. 🍋
My basil game is strong in my herb garden right now, but @traderjoes has a large container of organic basil leaves for around $3. 🌿
Tried out some CBD Oil 🌿 in Cocktail and Brownie form this week thanks to @rosebudcbd & @thebreslin. CBD is the non-psychoactive chemical in marijuana that’s anti-anxiety and anti-inflammatory. I can’t speak to all the benefits but I did feel more relaxed after the drink and I like the idea of taking medicine in my cocktail 💁🏼♂️
DRINK THIS INSTEAD OF SODA. Ever since my friend @yeahdave David Romanelli called green tea a “GAME CHANGER” (yes I remember), I have reached for this instead of a second cup of coffee to pick me up in the afternoon when I need it. Soda (which I don’t drink anyways) has AGE’s (advanced glycation end-product s) which cause cells to damage and age. Green tea is the exact opposite! It has flavonoids (which are antioxidants that “scavenge” those troublesome free radicals). Just make sure: not all are created equal! Also some have caffeine and some do not so be cautious with your caffeine intake. Www.vitalintegrative.com
First day of a summer road trip🚌 First spot Niagara Falls! Started the drive yesterday and slept in a rest area in the bed in the back and got to the falls this morning. .
Having the RV allows me to have my food with me as I travel! I ate breakfast in it this morning and then I packed my lunch for the day. Did lots of research and only did one of the many attractions. This was beneficial because I didn’t get burnt out or fatigued from over scheduling myself (Did cave of the winds!) .
I also recommend to get to the park early before the crowds to appreciate the views even more! Was able to also walk across the boarder and take in even more of this amazing place ⛲️
Effects of Using CBD For Cancer Symptom Relief
The major advantage of using CBD to relieve cancer is the fact that it doesn’t have the side effects associated with strong chemical medications and it won’t make the patient loopy or “high”. Even more so, it has been proven to have an array of positive effects on cancer patients.
These include: • Triggering the death of cancer cells • Preventing unhealthy cell division • Preventing the growth of tumors in the new blood vessels • Reducing the spread of cancer cells throughout the body • Speeding up the waste disposal mechanism of the body or autophagy which can cause the death of cells.
All these effects are caused by locking off of CB2 receptors with the use of CBD.
More studies are needed, but it is ALMOST confirmable that cannabidiol can be used as an effective complementary cancer therapeutic aid.
The best salad I had all week, in the comfort of my own home!
My usual salad base consists of spring mix, and zucchini spiraled into noodles (thus begins the texture journey). 🥗 Add some sliced onions... for me, sliced over diced because I get more FLAVOR! And I’m all about flava. Next up, avo-ca-do. 🥑 Fresh. And tofu! Cold, as is.
Extra dressings for this salad included my FAVORITE type of olive, Castelvetrano. I bet once I travel through Greece and Italy, I will be introduced to many more of these fruits. Oh, and speaking of fruits... that stuff that looks like smoked salmon is PAPAYA. Fresh, ripe, and oh so juicy-sweet papaya.
Squeeze of lemon juice and apple cider vinegar 🍋 fresh cilantro, sea salt, black pepper, and turmeric. I’m good to go! Bon appétit! 🍽 I hope you’re enjoying your Saturday!
How has autoimmune disease improved your life? ☀️ Michelle from @hapahealth again!
My life is infinitely better since I found plantains through AIP 😍 these fried sweet plantains inspired by @thecuriouscoconut are my favorite treat! .
Honestly though, AI disease really has improved my life. It was tough to recognize at first because I was too busy feeling sorry for myself, but I look at my life now and feel so much gratitude. I appreciate my body and all it does for me. I’m a more kind and compassionate person, to myself and others. I’ve made so many friends in this community (two of whom I’ve gotten to meet in real life!! @heavenlymindedpaleo and @healthilycharlee 💗) .
What about you? Can you think of a positive thing about your chronic illness? ✨
The medicine! Olena (Tumeric in Hawaiian) is a very, very medicinal and sacred herb. Tumeric is the pigment that makes Curry its orangish-yellow color. It's been used in Aruvedic medicine to help with inflammation, brain support and even to boost the health of the Cardiovascular system. It's a popular holistic choice for aiding in pains within the body and something need I learned is there is a compound in Tumeric called Turmerone that can actually help boost the bodys own stem cell production.
I added fresh Tumeric to my smoothie and a tad bit of fresh ground Black Pepper, which can help the bio-availability of Tumeric go up by almost 1,000% 💪🙏 Plants are the divine source's message of health and healing ..... #herbs#health#medicine#medicinal#tumeric#antiinflammatory#brainhealth#mentalhealth#fresh#spices#life#bethechangeyouwanttosee#grateful#healing

COMMUNITY // One of the main reasons I started this account was to build a network of people dealing with autoimmune diseases. A community where I could find encouragement through the stories of others and also one where I could help others too. Having an autoimmune disease can be isolating. At times, it can feel like no one understands what you are going through. But through Instagram, I have found friends with autoimmune diseases that understand what it’s like to have a flare up and be achy all over, have brain fog, and be completely fatigued, friends that are there to encourage on the difficult days, friends to encourage with challenges like going Autoimmune Paleo. I am so thankful for my new friends, including Shanna with @wellnessunraveled. She has been so open with her journey with Hashimoto’s disease. I have learned so much from her. When she launched her blog last week, she ran a promotion…and I was the winner. And look what just came in the mail! This beautiful mug that I’m holding (I’m completely obsessed with blush pink) and everything in the next pic (swipe 👈). Thank you, Shanna, for your encouragement and generosity! Wishing you all the best and continued success! #todayfood#cleaneats#aip#paleo#thyroid#chronicillness#health#hashimotos#foodsensitivities#autoimmunedisease#natural#healthyeating#hypothyroidism#guthealth#eatclean#realfood#yall#grainfree#dairyfree#organic#antiinflammatory#healthtips#momlife#autoimmunepaleo
