Foodessa FALL favorites

Shorter days and cooler moments reach for heart and tummy warming recipes.
Colors abound with textures grasping our attention to cook for gatherings.

During the last weeks, an unexpected life project has kept me busy working on my digestive health.
Although super challenging to say the least, I've come to appreciate much more how food affects us.

After many years of not truly understanding why my digestive workings were causing me unease…
I've hunkered down to get to the bottom of the how and why of IBS.
I know…not too appealing is it? 
As you can imagine, this is not what I was planning on sharing after my last post.
However, after much reflection, I felt it was time to let it out.

The unfortunate news is that most of my recipes have to be overhauled in order for me to heal with time. 
It has brought new meaning to what healthful menu planning is for digestive sufferers.
So many restrictions…I still can't grasp the full complexity of it. 
I can only hope that the gut heals completely as I re-introduce some of the foods I love.

For now, I've decided to continue highlighting older and...
improved recipes while I continue on this quest.

Maybe one day, I'll be able to start another blog with my new found culinary journey.
For the near future, I hope you enjoy some of these shared Autumn loved recipes.
