This time five years ago I was trying to absorb the fact that I have Graves Disease, an incurable, but thankfully treatable, autoimmune disease.
Like many diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, my life drastically changed after my diagnosis. Initially I was devastated and angry. But five years later I can honestly say that Graves Disease has changed my life for the better.
Really, I changed myself for the better. But knowing I would be spending a lifetime with Graves Disease truly motivated me to examine my life and foster changes that would allow me to thrive in my circumstances. And there are so many ways that you can too! Even if you don’t have a chronic illness.
Don’t wait for a disease to make yourself a priority. Let’s talk about how to truly make yourself feel fantastic, inside and out.

Recently I had a revelation of sorts. I need to slow down when I’m cooking and start paying attention. Not because I’m on crazy hyperspeed, but because I’m always winging it… which makes it near impossible to share my dishes! This awesome, Sweet and Sour Miso Veggie Stir Fry is the first product of my new vow to cook more mindfully. Aren’t you proud?
I mean, seriously… there’s a severe lack of main dishes in the Health-Esteem recipe house! And you can give thanks to mindless improvisation. Which is totally fun, and I plan to continue to do… just not 100% of the time (since I love to share with you!)
So I finally slowed things down, grabbed my measuring cups and took notes! Booyah!
Get your cutting board ready and prepare for a delicious, filling, and delightfully sweet and sour stir fry. I know you’ll love it!

The first time I heard the word ‘hangry’ (hungry angry) it totally resonated with me. Why? Because this girl can get seriously hangry if she allows herself to. Imagine me back in my early Graves Disease days, when no amount of food could satisfy my hunger! Hangry city! Luckily, hangriness is not something I experience anymore, because when it comes to healthy food, I am always prepared. And my breakfast game is THE BEST! I’ve learned how to make breakfast work for my busy schedule – and you should too. Which is why you seriously need to try this delicious blueberry overnight oats recipe. It practically makes itself!
