The Prednisone Piggy

My appetite isn’t showing any signs of slowing down any time soon. With some major effort, I’m able to keep my calorie intake to about 2500, but it’s pretty easy to slip above the 3000 mark. This is simply bizarre, in contrast to the low calorie days leading up to surgery. In a pre-surgery week, I would […]

The day in pictures

It was a long (but very good) day. My brain is toast, so I’ll keep it simple:

Sometimes you gotta spice things up!

“Eat, Pray, Love” was already taken

First things first: Happy Thanksgiving!!! And thank you for reading this inaugural post of “Hungry Girl Eats”. If you know me at all (and if you’re reading this, then you do), then you’re aware of my journey with Crohn’s disease, and the title of the blog needs no further explanation. I’m starting this project for […]
