It's been awhile since I posted here or sent out a newsletter, despite how many things I would love to write about. In fact there are a number of drafts started but yet to be completed. I've been a little distracted with life lately (which you can usually find my updates on Facebook) and just returned back to Bellingham after 3 weeks in Kansas (there really is no place like home!). It's taking some time to rest and recover from traveling. Between the heat, staying busy with friends and family, and the flights, I'm exhausted!
A few quick updates:
Treatment Plan - Check out what I am doing now to manage and hopefully improve symptoms of GP. This website was created to help raise some necessary funds to make this possible and share part of the journey as I explore options.
Registered dietitian and FODMAP guru, Kate Scarlata, asked me to share a post about implementing the FODMAP diet with GP. Her website has been incredibly informative and a positive inspiration for me this past year. You can find the link here.
The Awareness Walk for Gastroparesis is in the planning stages and will be happening September 7th in Bellingham, WA. There are a couple other potential locations that some are working on putting together so I will keep you updated. T-shirts will be up for pre-sale soon with an exciting opportunity to be entered into a special drawing for a big prize! More details to come this next week.
And lastly, the next newsletter will be coming out in July after a 3 month hiatus! If you have a favorite recipe you would like to share and have featured please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The one ingredient to include for July: coconut oil
Thank you to my readers who have sent me such kind emails about how this website has helped you on your own journey! It is so comforting to know other enjoy reading as much as I enjoy writing :)
