Learning To Cook For Better Health: From Novice to Paleo

  
  
  
Lauren's hope Health Challenge

Those of you participating in the Lauren's Hope Health Challenge (which you can still join!) may have noticed that my biggest concern about trying the "Paleo" way of eating for February isn't the lack of bread or chocolate or even milk for my coffee. It's cooking. My "cooking" to date has been a long-standing family joke. I would invite family for holiday meals and they would not-so-subtly ask who was going to be handling the kitchen duties. My mom would come visit and offer to bring in Chinese food for dinner or suggest we all eat out. Until this month's challenge, I had basically mastered the art of taking tofu crumbles out of the freezer, adding some sauce, and microwaving them with some steamed vegetables. It's not my proudest accomplishment.

Today is National Wear Red Day! The American Heart Association's Go Red For Women initiative is celebrating the 10th year of Wear Red Day with the hope that one day, we won't need it anymore.


Lauren's Hope Health Challenge - Week 1

  
  
  
describe the image

The first-ever Lauren's Hope Health Challenge started this past Saturday, February 1, and the big topic around the office this Monday was how we all did with our health and fitness goals over the weekend. I was excited to share some Paleo blueberry muffins I made, which were really pretty good, despite the fact that they looked nothing like the original recipe's adorably delicious-looking photo. 


Living with Celiac's Disease [Part Three]

  
  
  
Symptoms of Celiac Disease

Life after diagnosis has been smooth sailing for the most part. Since my father and I are both gluten free, even Thanksgiving and Christmas (normally a pretty gluten-y affair) were both huge successes for us, and by success, I mean it felt normal, and that meant a lot to the both of us.


Plan Ahead For "Wear Red" Day!

February is Heart Health Month, and next Friday, February 7, 2014, is National Wear Red Day. This annual observance is an opportunity to raise awareness about heart disease, specifically the fact that heart disease is the #1 killer of women.


Join The First-Ever Lauren’s Hope Health Challenge!

  
  
  
paleo cheat sheet

Earlier this week, I made a big commitment. I decided to adopt a strict Paleo eating plan for one month to try it out, starting on February 1. I decided to share this decision with all of you here on the Lauren’s Hope blog and invite you to join me in making one health-related change for the month of February. It would be fun, I figured, and it would certainly help me stay accountable. So I went about my business, typing up a fun article, putting together some interesting facts and art, and proofreading my work. I had the whole thing all ready to go. And then I scrapped it. I deleted the whole thing.


Living with Celiac's Disease [Part Two]

  
  
  
Celiac Disease Small Intestine Villi

As soon as I was greeted by the nurse, I knew something was amiss. The nurse quickly ushered me into an exam room, and only a few short minutes later, my doctor followed.

Brittany McNeal Celiac Disease

First off, I’d like to introduce myself: Hello! I’m Brittany McNeal. That's me over there to the right... Snazzy. I’m the brand-spanking new content creator at Lauren’s Hope, and I (like almost 8% of Americans) have an autoimmune disease. In fact, like most people who have an autoimmune disease, I have more than one: Celiac Disease and Hashimoto’s Disease.
