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

Chocolate Peppermint Bark  /  Delicious as it Looks

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.

Cozy Oatmeal Pancakes

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!

Sesame Soba Noodles with Chicken & Kale

I'm always looking for inspiration for low-FODMAP recipes. I subscribe to Cooking Light magazine and it has proven to be one of my favorite recipe resources. It's true that there are some recipes they feature that I can't tolerate, but when I come across a recipe that I can adapt, I get really excited to share it with my readers. This Sesame Noodle recipe is a great example.
