I thought I'd try a new type of post. One in which I feature some of my favorite low-FODMAP recipes in different categories. Also, one in which I don't have to feature a new recipe that I haven't had time to create because my life has been a disaster lately and I'm so stressed I don't know which end is up and I've forgotten how to breathe and my back is still killing me. Did I mention I'm stressed?
My mom recently had another health scare. Thankfully, she is doing much better now and it appears the doctors may have found out why she has stopped breathing twice now. So the past few weeks I have either been working or at the hospital. Everything else has had to be put on the back burner. Plus, my back is still out of whack. Although it's better, I'm still not able to function normally. Or exercise. Exercise is essential to my mental health, so not being able to work out has made everything worse. Time for another trip to the doctor.
Well, back to this post. I decided to round up some of my favorite fish and seafood recipes for those of you observing Lent. It's no secret that I love fish and seafood and don't need a special occasion to enjoy it. I hope you enjoy these recipes too!

Cookie Dough for Breakfast?
I have a new breakfast obsession. I saw this recipe on Pop Sugar and was immediately in love. In spite of my killer back pain, I immediately got up out of my comfy chair and went to the kitchen to make this recipe. I decided to actually try it with the Greek yogurt. I've been noticing that I tolerate protein much better when I pair it with carbs, and this was the perfect opportunity to do so.

I know it's been a while since my last post. Things have finally been settling down though, and I finally have some extra time. The holidays are over, we are all moved into our new house, settling into our new jobs and my mom is coming home next week. Did the last couple of months really happen? I'm so glad we made it through because we are in a really good place here in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

This Christmas finds us in a different state, a new city. We decided to move back to Iowa to be closer to my parents after my mom suffered from some very serious medical complications this past summer. She almost died. I realized how much I missed being near her and my dad. I realized that our lives are so fragile. At the same time, when something like this happens, I realize how strong and resilient life is too. The human body is capable of amazing things, people can bounce back, medical professionals can help heal. Humans are so full of strength.

So I guess I’m back in Iowa and I’m also back to eating eggs. The two seem totally unrelated and they are, but that’s what’s going on in my life right now! My husband and I decided to move back to Iowa to be closer to my parents. I mentioned in a previous blog that my mom has been sick. She is currently on a ventilator and at a skilled care nursing home. We are working on her getting off the ventilator so that she can come home. Since we've moved back to Iowa, she has made great strides and it looks like that is a possibility for the near future!
