HaPpY tHaNkSgIvInG, sCdErS!! What are YOU thankful for? :) ♥︎

I could NOT let this wonderful day go by without a post. 
HaPpY tHaNkSgIvInG, eVeRyOnE!! 
Coconut positively LOVES shoes. :) I can't get enough of this cutie pie. 
I hope you all were able to spend some quality time with family/friends that are basically family today. I'm so grateful/thankful for my incredibly healing family. 
(What are YOU grateful for??)
Time spent with family has the potential to lower inflammation throughout the body. ;) 
Was there laughter involved?? I hope there was, guys! Laughter is ThErApEuTiC!!
Did you have your own personal plate of Thanksgiving dinner (with plain food, no gluten, no sugar, no dairy, no fruit, no grains, no potatoes, etc.), or were you able to tolerate some of the meal on its own? 
I also wanted to take the time to remind you that it's the
H O L I D A Y S.
In other words, please BE SURE to love yourself during this time of year.
Don't cave in to TeMpTaTiOn.  
Don't eat something...
or high in FODMAPs, 
or high in histamine.
Eat "YOU-friendly" FOODS to avoid a FLARE! 
Do whatever you have to do to be happy during this 'sweet' time of year, 
which is overflowing with goodies that will 
set you back for WEEKS
 I promise you that one bite of cake/pie/a cupcake/chocolate/apple/mango/brussels sprouts/potato/grapes/pineapple is NOT worth the negative consequences. 
I want to hear how WELL you are over the next month 
during the most delightful 
H O L I D A Y S 
of the year.
:) If you need any help with "YOU-friendly" snacks, 
or desserts that won't send you into a horrible flare, 
please don't hesitate to 
comment here or email me!  
Until next time, 
please be endlessly happy, be friendly to yourself, and LOVE YOUR GUT!
Lots of love,
