My name is Ramsey. I am a wife. I am a mother to be. I am a photographer. I am starting this blog at the end of my First Trimester. Through photos, thoughts on everyday life, and recipes, I hope to share my journey, this new adventure along the way.
A brief History:
In 2010 I was struggling with pains from Endometriosis, had many intestinal problems, and suffered from severe headaches. I had been to a couple of doctors, but decided to take matters into my own hands. By process of elimination, I took out gluten, dairy, and eventually all animal products. Within 7 days of taking Gluten out of my diet, I noticed a vast difference in how my body felt. I was so relieved. Now I avoid it at all costs, otherwise I suffer severely. My father, Jim Conway, who’s motto once was “The Redder the Better”, is now a Vegan. He chose the Vegan Lifestlye due to heart problems, which he reversed. He was the one who suggested I try it. Even though I eliminated gluten, I was still having headaches, and a few other problems. I eliminated all dairy first, then slowly, very slowly I eliminated all other animal products. It is now 3 years later, I never suffer from severe headaches or migraines, rarely suffer from intestinal problems, and do not feel the endometriosis.
It is hard to wrap my brain around it sometimes. I went nearly 25 years eating these things, and I was always sick, and always hurting. It became my normal. I learned to suck it up and live with it. But that is no way to live. Eliminating these things from my diet, wasn’t just changing my diet, it was a devoted lifestyle change. One that I am committed to keep for the rest of my life.
Now that I am pregnant, I have so many questions. I have no idea how I will handle what my children eat someday, but for now I plan to focus on my pregnancy and being healthy. So this blog will come second to everything else going on in my life. Please enjoy, please follow, please share!
