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…

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…

Hi, guys! Happy Monday! 🙂 So, we’ve had quite the rollercoaster ride in the Haupert household lately, especially with regard to our health. I’ll give you all of the highs and lows in a second, but, first, I wanted to share some fun stuff from our weekend! HIGH: Running with Quinn! Quinn and I took Murphy for a walk on Sunday morning. I was wearing pajama pants, a fleece pullover, and flip-flops. Quinn was decked…

Good morning! I wanted to share some of the self-healing, mind/body books I’ve been reading lately. They’re all a little bit different and have really great information in the them.

Well, guys, this post is quite the random mix of topics: Qigong, walkie talkies, air fryer Parmesan-crusted salmon, and books about mind-body healing. How’s THAT for variety? Haha! I really think this is the most random blog post on CNC to date! 🙂 And I would love to hear which topic you found most interesting. Please leave a comment below with your thoughts! I tried Qigong for the first time yesterday. I just finished a…

Soooo, anxiety has been kicking my butt lately, and it’s so frustrating. What’s even worse is that I have no idea why it’s plaguing me right now – it basically came out of nowhere. It could be related to everything going on in my gut right now. (Mind and body, especially the gut, are highly connected AND vice versa.) But I was in a flare for 5+ years and never felt like this, so I…

Happy anniversary to us! 🙂 Today is our 11th wedding anniversary, and we’re planning to celebrate on our family vacation this evening. Thankfully, Club Med has group babysitting in the evening, so Mal and I will get to have a proper date night to celebrate #11! And, of course, I’ll be sure to have a full wedding anniversary recap when we get home! Speaking of anniversaries… The early access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale kicks off today!…

We’re off to Florida this morning, so I figured it would be the perfect time to share this blog post with tips for surviving an elimination diet on vacation. Not that I’m doing any sort of elimination diet right now, BUT I know them all too well. I have taken many trips away when I had a restricted diet, and it’s not all that enjoyable. Of course, the thought of having to give up some…

One of the most common questions I receive from IBD patients is how long does it take for Entyvio to work? And, really, it depends on the person and their disease. Obviously, I’m not a doctor, but I’m more than happy to share my experience with Entyvio and ulcerative colitis. I started Entyvio after I failed Remicade. Actually, it never really worked for me. I went to the hospital every 8 weeks for Remicade infusions…

Hi, friends! I was on the “Pounds This” podcast a few weeks ago, and I wanted to share my interview with you guys. Amanda (the host) and I chatted about how getting fit for my wedding led to changing my life and starting Carrots ‘N’ Cake. We also discuss how to live a flexible lifestyle with macros and how I stay healthy while living with ulcerative colitis. I hope you decide to give it a listen. You…
