What's Cooking.....

I have struggled with my weight my whole life.  But, it wasn't until my Lupus Diagnosis 14 years ago that the pounds really started to pack on.  I spent over 6 years on Chemotherapy to get my immune system suppressed enough to help me regain some sort of a life.  I've been off of it for almost 3 years now and have been doing a more Natural approach.  I use oils, meditation, prayer and diet to cope with my daily pain and alleviate my joint inflammation.  I also have seen the changes in Kaden when he sticks to our New Lifestyle changes as well.  For our food each week we stick to Low Carbs and High Protein and Non-starchy Veggies.  A lot of my Recipes are from the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook.  I've had people ask me about what we eat....so her is a Glimpse of Our week.

Monday-2 Full Eggs 2 Pork Sausage and Mushrooms with Onions

I will put together a list of snacks and desserts later this week.  We enjoy dessert almost every night and I'm still loosing weight and feeling better then ever.  Even my Chiropractor complimented me the other day.  He said my joints moved easily and the decrease in inflammation was amazing!  So, do I miss Sugar and plain white flour????? No, not one bit!!!! :)
