Friends! There are a lot of new faces around here so I thought I would do a little intro post so we can all get to know each other better! First and foremost thank you so much for following along. Know that it means the world to me💕
If you are new, welcome! I’m Erin and here are a few things about me: 
1. My medical specialties are in both internal medicine and rheumatology which are fancy titles that mean I went to school forever! (Almost 15 years to be exact) 
2. I switched to the paleo diet almost 9 years ago (the same day I started residency) and have never looked back. This way of eating has changed my life and the health improvements I’ve seen in my patients willing to try it have been incredible. I truly do believe that real food is medicine. 
3. I hate the feel of wood. Popsicle sticks and chop sticks are basically my nemesis. 
4. Flowers make me happy, so, so happy.
5. I would much rather have a quiet night in than a wild night out. 
6. 90% of my wardrobe (and kitchen dishes) comes from @anthropologie 
6. My soul is happiest by the beach or the lake. Give me some sun and a body of water and that will bring me so much joy.
7. I love to read and am always looking for new great books so if there are any other readers out there please send me your favorites.
8. I wear a dress almost everyday. I much prefer dresses to pants. 
9. I first started my blog about 7 years ago but had no idea what I was doing and barely had time to post (hello residency) so I’ve started focusing on it way more over the last couple years.
10. Growing up I swam competitively and played basketball. I basically lived in the pool or on the court. My parents thought sports were the best way to keep their kids out of trouble and I am so grateful for those years in sport. I made life long friends and became extremely good at time management and goal setting because of it. I wouldn’t be who I am today had it not been for those experiences. 
Now it’s your turn! Tell me a few things about you💕

Cold, rainy days call for giant bowls of warm soup. And one of my all time favorite soup recipes is my Whole30 cream of cauliflower soup. It’s made with cauliflower, @kettleandfire bone broth, @nutiva coconut oil, @natural.value coconut milk, lots of herbs and spices and a little bit of love. 
The soup can also be made vegan friendly by using vegetable broth instead of bone broth and it’s also Paleo, GAPS and SCD safe too! 
If you make it be sure to tag me🍵

Have you seen the latest post on the blog? I’m discussing all the things can lead people to develop SIBO. As you’ll see there are many different potential causes and some people may have more than one. But it’s important to identify the underlying causes because you’ll need to address them to prevent a relapse after treatment. You’ll find the link to the post in my profile. Enjoy! .

When I don’t have a lot of time to cook, salmon is one of my go to meals. It’s so simple to prepare and is so quick to cook! Plus it’s so darn healthy! One of my favorite ways to dress it is with a little lemon and dill. Simple and still so tasty🍋
When you’re choosing salmon make sure you only ever get wild salmon and not farmed. Farmed salmon is fed grains and other by products that fish should never eat which significantly lowers the omega 3 fats and raises the omega 6 fats. In other words, it contributes to inflammation rather than reduces it. 
Just a little tip from me to you to try and increase your health💕

Fresh mountain air. Beautiful blue water. Friends since grade 8. My heart is so full💕
I’ve been working pretty darn hard lately between work, Beautycounter and the blog and yesterday was exactly what I needed. A full day off spent with best friends, out in nature and just enjoying each other’s company. It doesn’t get much better than that.
Happy Monday! .

I’ve been getting creative in the kitchen, trying to make the most of the limited foods that I can eat right now and today I made this incredible Double Berry Sauce that tastes like candy but doesn’t have any sugar (just fruit). And with a little help from @coach.erikhogan I got it all photographed and looking beautiful. 
I can already tell I will be using this sauce for so many things! Not only does it taste amazing right off the spoon but I think I’ll be making some popsicles and maybe even a cake in the near future! 
Now, who wants the recipe?!?!

Since sharing my SIBO story with you guys I have been getting so many questions about SIBO so I decided it was time I start writing some blog posts about it. Starting with this one: What is SIBO? 
Many doctors still aren’t familiar with SIBO as it wasn’t until recently that it was recognized as a cause of IBS and other gut issues. My goal is to save you the years of suffering that I had to go through in order to get a diagnosis and find a treatment that worked. If I can teach you just one thing with these posts I will consider that a win💕
What other SIBO topics would you like to see me write about!?!
