Antioxidant Midnight Snack

Lately I have been obsessed with putting as much anti-inflammatory foods as possible in my diet. I don’t eat very often, and am often too nauseous or pukey to even try eating, so this has been a struggle. The key for me has been to find things that feel more indulgent than eating junk when I’m too sick to actually cook. That meant replacing ice cream or cookies when a late night craving hits with something to help my overall health and lower inflammation, and I have found a pretty stunning array of foods-with-benefits. 🙂

My favorite thing right now is a steaming mug of organic chai tea with a tiny splash of organic cream or almond milk and an extra sprinkle of cinnamon on top, served with a handful of whole dried tart Montmorency cherries and marcona almonds. Absolutely delicious. Full of flavor, full of good stuff for my body, and in no way do I feel like I’m missing out. In fact, I am totally satisfied making these kinds of substitutions and have much more confidence that I can and will stick with the changes I am making. Baby steps! This is just one of oh-so-many.

About Jessi Finds Out Fibro

Hi, and thank you for finding your way to my corner of the web! I'm on a journey to empower myself and hopefully others through shared courage and compassion. I write Finding Out Fibro, a chronic illness and chronic pain awareness blog that is not just about fibromyalgia, as well as a new project making jewelry under the Etsy name Hopeful Spoon. Please check out the shop and share if you can! Thank you for your support! My other hobbies include defeating ableism anywhere I find it, upcycling old junk into funky awesomeness, raising my voice to erase stigma against invisible illness and mental illness, baking, collecting vintage kitchen ware, sharing body-positive messages, playing around in photoshop, abstract painting (especially in neons and metallics!), advocating for those living with chronic illnesses and mental health challenges, seeking safety and upholding visibility for LGBTQIA individuals living with physical and mental disabilities, researching and testing plant-based remedies for chronic pain, and spending all my spare spoons in my veggie garden. This is my opportunity to do more than just survive with chronic illness. This is me learning how to live well, even though there is no cure for the war my body is waging on me.
