Pursuing Bariatric Surgery

The Hard Decision

If you follow me on Facebook or are one of my friends on Facebook you might have read that I am Pursuing Bariatric Surgery. This was not an easy decision for me to make. It has taken me years. Choosing to change your stomach with surgery shouldn’t be an easy decision and believe me it wasn’t. Since I have written an article about bariatric surgery, I thought I would write several articles as I take each step towards my ultimate goal of getting bariatric surgery.

Celiac Friendly Baked Goodies That Taste Real – Never Fail Pie Crust

When I first was diagnosed as a Celiac Disease 8 years ago, things were not as easy as they are now to find Celiac Friendly Baked Goodies. I scoured the internet trying to find a decent brownie recipe or chocolate chip cookies that didn’t take 6 different types of flour that you had to grind yourself. Then I watched a YouTube video from this skinny little doctor. She said that her obese patients who had been diagnosed with Celiacs try to replace their goodies with a gluten free option. She warned against this. I turned her off right away and went on with my search!

The Importance of Self-Care

I wasn’t planning for The Importance of Self-Care to be the next article I write for Wellness Works NW; I knew a blog about self-care was brewing, but it wasn’t until Monday afternoon that I understood the timing of this article. You see, Veda is here. If you haven’t read my article about Veda, I will let you know that is what I call the depression that overcomes me at times and tends to push me in directions I don’t want to go. At some point I decided to name her something so that I wasn’t getting mad at myself for my feelings that can be really opposite of what I want to be experiencing. When Veda comes, she makes me VERY tired. So fatigued that it can feel impossible to do anything other than lie in bed and feel bad. It was all I could do to get out of the car and go to bed after church on Sunday and even my little nephew could not get me to fully wake up, and I REALLY love him.

Living with Celiacs During the Holidays

Holidays are tough when you are Living with Celiacs During the Holidays! Unfortunately, they kind of revolve around food and drinks. Even when you are super careful, cross-contamination abounds. And honestly, people mean well when they tell you this dish is gluten free but be careful! If your friends don’t understand all the ingredients that include wheat and other grains, they could potentially be making you sick for three days or worse if you have anaphylactic symptoms.

What is Wellness?

I feel like I am at ground zero when it comes to my wellness journey. A lot of challenges have shown up in my life and it is time to re-assess and come up with a different approach to my plans. I am learning that there are times that you have to slow down, realign, and evaluate your wellness plan and ask “What is Wellness?” It is not easy. It is overwhelming. It is not fun. I thought I would share with you all what I have been learning about wellness, what wellness looks like, what wellness is and my own wellness journey that I am on now.

Wellness is an active process of becoming more aware and attuned to your body and soul.

Is Your Diet a Trusted Wellness Tool or Just a Fad?

Fads come and go but we all need our diet to be a Trusted Wellness Tool. Instead of relying on any Fad Diet, I think we can all say that Healthy Eating should be a goal we all work towards.

I have a beef with diets. It is personal. I don’t mean to color your Wellness Philosophy (more than you want me to) but there are a lot of diets out there. From the sounds of it they are meant for a goal that is quick and referred to as easy, but not…instead of a life-long action plan that meets our Wellness Goals and fuels our day, every day.

What do you do when you reach your goal?

Being Thankful for Keto Caramel Macchiatto Tiramisu

I am super excited to share this recipe with you because it is so DELICIOUS! Karen and I were invited to Jamie’s house for Thanksgiving and she let us know that she was cooking a KETO Thanksgiving. As she listed the menu I noticed she didn’t name a dessert (possibly because she knows I like to make desserts) so I offered to find a yummy one. I found a few but in order to make the group happy we decided on Keto Caramel Macchiatto Tiramisu.

I found all the recipes on The recipes were meant for a party smaller than mine so I adjusted the amounts. It also called for me to make at least one other recipe, Cream Cheese Pancakes, and because I have never enjoyed sugar free caramel sauce, I googled Keto Caramel Sauce which led me back to the same site and found one that I added to my plans for this wonderful concoction.
