Hello there, my lovely ladies!
I hope this blog post finds you all doing well and taking care of yourselves. It’s been over 10 years since I was diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis, and the journey to regain my health has been a challenging one. However, I have learned so much along the way, and I am excited to share some of my tips with you today.
Tip #1: Make Time for Rest and Relaxation One of the most important things that I have learned on my journey to better health is the importance of rest and relaxation. It’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life and forget to take a step back and recharge. However, making time for rest and relaxation is essential to your overall health and well-being.
Tip #2: Focus on Whole, Nutritious Foods Another tip that I have learned is to focus on whole, nutritious foods. This means incorporating plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein into your diet. These foods are packed with essential vitamins and minerals that your body needs to function at its best.
Now, onto the recipe! Today, I am excited to share a soul food favorite with a vegan twist. This vegan mac and cheese recipe is sure to satisfy your cravings and nourish your body at the same time.

Lastly, I invite you to check out my favorite thing to assist in gaining my health back for the month of March. This month, I am loving my super coffee! This coffee has been a great way for me to gain my mental clarity back after COVID and improve my overall immunity due to the powerful mushroom combination. If you already drink coffee, I highly recommend investing in this alkaline super coffee.
