Vegetarian- no meat or fish (sometimes egg – which I do eat)

Migraines: my story
My activity level over those years varied, and beginning of 2019 was about 1-2x per week moderately intense. Then randomly, right after I moved into my apartment last June, I noticed 1, 2, 6, now it’s been 8 months since I’ve gotten a true migraine.
Why I avoid fast food
Be careful where you eat- fast food is highly processed and full of harmful chemicals. Limit your consumption for the longevity of your brain and body!
Keep it simple, include the rainbow of colors and food groups, and everything in moderation. It’s super simple and a foul-proof plan to follow. One of my favorite resources on this topic is Kelly Leveque of “Be Well By Belly.”
Typical breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert options that I love.
CLE Juice Box: gluten free, vegan, and naturally sweet. My favorite local pit stop! Also Inca Bar and Cafe which I forgot to mention in this episode.
Eating well serves your body, mind, skin, energy levels, and happiness levels in all honesty.
Good nutrition resources (NOT diet culture)
Book: Genius Food
Kelly leveque “Be Well By Kelly” and “Body Love” by Cameron Diaz
Heinens, Fresh Thyme, and Trader Joe’s grocery stores are my favorite- usually I just do Marc’s or Giant
Restaurants in CLE- Cle juice box on the east side, west side: The Root Cafe, Cleveland Vegan, Townhall, Fahrenheit, and the flying fig are my favorites
