This post is sponsored by Project Baseline by Verily, but opinions are my own. One of the most pivotal moments in my journey with Ulcerative Colitis was something my (beloved) gastroenterologist said to me. I had been struggling with Ulcerative Colitis for more than 5 years and hadn’t achieved anything close to remission. I was in a bad place both mentally and physically, so I was losing hope that I would ever live a normal, healthy life again. His words…

This post is sponsored by Project Baseline by Verily, but opinions are my own. Before I share what actually put me into remission, I want to acknowledge what’s happening in the world right now with the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s been a stressful and anxious time, and it’s scary for me too, but we’ll get through it together. Right now, more than ever, it’s important to support research of all kinds so each and every one…

I wanted to pop on here today and talk about my gross Entyvio cough and how I got rid of it. I have ulcerative colitis and have been taking Entyvio for years now, so I always wonder if the cough was related to the drug or the disease. So many of you guys have asked for updates about my cough. Thank you so much for asking. I really appreciate it. So this mucus-y cough was…

Support now, party later! The Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation New England Chapter’s signature fundraiser, A Night in White for the Cure, will be on August 6. Even though the event is postponed, the organization still needs your support now to keep patient programs running and research funded. A cure is in our lifetime — help us get there! WHY IBD? 3 million Americans have IBD, myself included. If you’ve followed my health journey for any…

This year, amidst all the isolation and Zooming, I accepted the honor to serve as the Rising Community Leader in IBD for the New England Chapter of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation. I am extremely humbled at this opportunity to work alongside emerging leaders in the New England community to lay the platform for a future free of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, collectively known as Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD). As you probably know, I have been deeply affected by…

Hi friends! I have a fun recipe and giveaway for you today! What’s on tap? A delicious Eggs & Greens Buddha Bowl and giveaway of The Leaky Gut Meal Plan – a brand new book by my friend Sarah Kay Hoffman of The Gutsy Girl. If you’re not familiar with Sarah, her blog and Instagram account have been a favorite of mine for years. She has so many resources for gut healing, hormones, acne… all things I struggle…

Hey guys, welcome to next next addition of Carrots ‘N’ Cake Instagram Live. This is a special episode as I partnered with the AGA on their IBD Parenthood Project. If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ve probably noticed that I have partnered with them for about a year on different projects. It is such a great resource for moms with IBD, before, during, and after pregnancy. I had so many questions related to…

Hey guys! Welcome to this next edition of CNC Instagram Live. I have a great group of questions for you today, so if you’d like to hear them, stay tuned and listen in!     LDN and UC Update I received a few variations of this question and am happy to talk about it because I’ve got a lot to tell!

Hey guys! Welcome to the next edition of CNC Instagram Live! As always, I’m so glad to be able to jump on here and answer some of your questions. I have another awesome list of questions from you guys, so let’s get started! 1. How come all macro calculators have different results when I input the same info?  That’s the thing about online calculators – they are all different. There are a lot of very…

I’ve partnered with the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA)’s IBD Parenthood Project to bring you this blog post.  If I’ve learned anything from motherhood, it’s that in order to raise a healthy baby, I needed to be a healthy mom first. My experience with pregnancy and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) was relatively lucky, but everyone’s journey is different.  IBD Parenthood Project aims to address misperceptions and fears women with IBD and their health care providers experience throughout all…

Hey there! Happy Hump Day! WHERE has this week gone already? Holy cow, I can’t believe it’s already more than halfway through Wednesday. Monday and Tuesday were a total whirlwind with the boys off from school, so now I’m boogieing to get things done. (“Boogieing” is a word, right? It just looks super weird.) Yesterday morning, I ate the most delicious breakfast hash. It was made with roasted broccoli, Brussels sprouts, air fryer onions, chicken…

Is fasted cardio ok for women, specifically 20-25 minutes of interval sprints? My answer: it depends!…

I love that you guys are so interested in my anti-candida journey and what I’ve been eating lately. I’ve received A TON of questions and hundreds of you have already signed up for my Anti-Candida Meal Plan + Prep Guide. These were created by a Registered Dietitian and include a bunch of recipes and a grocery shopping list to get you started, but I also wanted to share some of the “real life” meals on the…

I have a candida overgrowth! I know… you’re probably thinking: “WTF, why would anyone be excited about that?” Well, after years and years of searching for answers, I finally feel like things are starting to make sense. Hopefully! Photo by monica di loxley on Unsplash Ok, so I was a little hesitant to share this news on the blog and social media because of what people might think (and say). I mean, candida is a yeast…
