My Conditions

Ulcerative Colitis

My Recent Recipes and Articles

I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis almost 6 years ago and remained symptom free for over 4 years without really changing anything in my lifestyle. I then had a terrible flare up that turned into multiple hospital stays, anemia and over 30lbs of weight loss. After several medication changes and no improvements, I sought help from a nutritionist. This is where I was introduced to the Paleo Diet. Now after that visit I left feeling depressed. I have always been a healthy eater but if you know me well you know I live for bagels, donuts and cheese. I decided to start The Tender Tummy instagram account mainly to keep myself accountable and to find recipes ideas so I wouldn’t get bored. What I didn’t expect was to connect with so many amazing people on the same journey as me. I have also rediscovered my love for cooking and all during the process I have improved my health. I am now at the point where I am at a normal healthy weight and I am no longer anemic. Just recently, I exercised for the first time in 6 months. Every day I am getting healthier and stronger and I am so thankful that I have the support of my family, friends, and all of you throughout this experience. On The Tender Tummy you will find recipes that are entirely gluten, lactose, refined sugar, and grain free. This site is great for anyone following the SCD, Paleo, Whole30, gluten free, or health lifestyle. I’ve learned that while this diet is restrictive, you can still create food that is full of flavor and texture. My goal on this blog is to continue to work towards better health and inspire those around me to get healthy and do so with delicious and simple recipes.
