Just a half Brit drinking tea. Typical lol Green Tea with crushed lemon to be exact. Did you know there are many benefits to drinking green tea? One study conducted on a group of men with the exact same diets and workouts but one group drank green tea while the other did not. After 4 weeks the green tea group lost 5x more fat than the other. So brew up some of this tasty emerald water. Stick your pinky out and enjoy an easy method of shedding some of those excess lbs.😎#greentea #cancerfighter #fatloss #hoready #ripped #nutrition #diet #tea

Vegan Pineapple Roasted Chile Verde with Spanish Rice

Here’s what you get when you eat a small boiled potato with the skin: 3 grams cancer-fighting fiber, at least 20 percent of daily potassium and vitamin C needs, and significant amounts of niacin, folate and magnesium.

Chile Verde

  • Pineapple 1 cup (unsweetened or fresh)
  • 5 tomatillos
  • 4 cooked potatoes – keep skin on, cut into chunks (any kind)
  • White onions (1 cup diced)
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 jalapeno
  • Salt

Chop the following into big chunks: pineapple, tomatillos, onions.  Place them into a baking pan and then add in whole garlic clove and whole jalapeno.  Broil on high heat for 20 minutes or until a little charred.  Place it all in a blender and mix for 2 minutes or until well blended.  Put in a saucepan, add cooked potatoes and cook on medium heat for 15 minutes.  Add salt to taste. 

 Spanish Rice

  • ½ white onion
  • 1 TBSP flax seed oil
  • 1 cup basmati rice
  • 1 8 oz. can chopped tomatoes (or 2 cups fresh diced tomatoes)
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cloves diced garlic
  • salt & pepper to taste

Heat oil on medium heat, add onions and garlic and sauté for about 5 minutes.  Add rice and brown for 5 minutes.  Add chopped tomatoes and water and bring to a boil.  Cover and put on low until water is absorbed, about 30 minutes.  Add salt and pepper to taste.

*Top dish with cilantro and avocado slices

{ Cancer Peonies }
My day started with an outpouring of support from friends and family. Wally, my therapy dog, snuggled up next to me while I cried and responded to all my messages. But this all has to be some sort of a ridiculous mistake. This wasn’t supposed to go this way! I’m stuck here not knowing what comes next until Monday. My doctors won’t have the full picture until they get my blood labs back. My head is reeling with questions. Is the mass of cells they found in my jaw really cancer? Is it even thyroid cancer anymore if it has spread to another part of my body? Will I have to undergo the same terrible radiation treatment? Or something even worse? Will I need another surgery? Will I have yet another scar? How much time will I need off from work? How am I going to deal with how people treat me differently again??? #thisiscancer #crazysexycancer #thyroidcancer #thyca #fuckcancer #stupidcancer #cancersucks #cancersuckschicago #cancer #thyroid #butterflygland #cancerthriver #cancersurvivor #cancerfighter #wholebodyscans #cancerscans #yoga #yogalifestyle #vishuddhawellness

Two years have passed. And I miss you more and more everyday. This past week I’ve done nothing but replay your last days in my head. And I remember everything so vividly. It would feel as if it were reality. I remember laying in the hospice reading books from the New Testament every night while replaying Hillsong’s Healer, High and Lifted Up, Where We Belong & Sing to the Lord. I remember personally talking to you two days before you passed. You probably didn’t even understand a word I was saying! But I am glad I got that chance to speak to you. What I do love about our last memory together were six days before you were sent to the hospice. I remember always being called by you every five minutes. I remember you telling me ‘I love you, too.’ And those were the last words I heard from you. I will always cherish that last moment hearing your voice. I miss you, mother dearest. I’m always thinking about you. I love you SO much. You will always be the strongest fighter in my life. #cancerfighter #restinpeace #motherdearest #twoyeardeathanniversary

{ Roquefort Cheese }
Uplifting news - my labs came back and at the moment I do not need to pursue radiation treatment. Which means no more low iodine diet - which means cheese! However, there are still unanswered questions and conflicting opinions and information in regards to my scans and other results. This week I will seek out a second opinion. In every experience like this, I continue to lose faith in our medical system. Thank you all for your support, it lifted me up all day long! #roquefort #cheese #crazysexycancer #thyroidcancer #thyca #fuckcancer #stupidcancer #cancersucks #cancersuckschicago #cancer #thyroid #cancerthriver #cancersurvivor #cancerfighter #LID #lowiodinediet #cancerscans #vishuddhawellness
