Fibromyalgia and Healthy Coping Methods #2 ~ Eating Whole Foods

Fibromyalgia plays host to a number of digestive issues.  Many people  with FMS will develop IBS, heartburn, acid reflux, as well as an increasing intolerance to certain foods and drink. For some, even a particular food can cause a flare up.  For me, a diet that consists mostly of non-processed whole foods works best.

Whole foods & Healthy Coping Methonds In Fibromyalgia

A few months ago I came across a series of videos by a  man named Johnathan Bailor (The Calorie Myth).  His approach toward diet/health/and weight loss is well documented and scientifically based.  Below is a lecture he gave at Microsoft. I encourage you to check it out, very interesting stuff.

~Garden Fresh Pie with Cheddar Cornmeal Crust (GF)

~1 cup cornmeal

~1 cup cheddar

~1 tblsp raw organic honey

~1 egg

~1/4 cup milk

~1 1/2 tblsp olive or coconut oil

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Mix all ingredients and press into greased pie plate.  Bake for approx. 15-20 min. until slightly colored.  Remove from oven and set aside.


~6 eggs

~2 cups cheese (cheddar, Monterey Jack, pepper jack, swiss)

~3/4 cup milk

~ assorted chopped vegetables of choice (I used; mushrooms, onions, baby spinach, zucchini)

~sliced fresh hot house tomatoes

Reduce heat to 350 degrees.

Whisk eggs and milk together, add cheese and chopped vegetables.  Pour onto crust and top with tomatoes.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.  Bake approx. 45-60 min. until almost set in middle, will be slightly jiggly.

    Paleo is a great eating style, lots of protein, veg, fruit, nuts–I can see where that would reduce a lot of symptoms. Thanks for stopping by Jennifer! 🙂

    Great recipe and video! It is very important to avoid certain foods with fibro. I’m still learning what to avoid. Usually hot dogs (all beef) don’t bother me, but the last two times I ate them, I develop heartburn. This first time could have been a fluke, but the second time was enough for me. No more Costco hot dogs for me 🙁

    Thanks for sharing at Inspire Me Monday! This post was one of my two favorite posts at last week’s linkup. It will be featured on my blog, Being Fibro Mom, at tomorrow’s linkkup. http://www.beingfibromom.com

    Awesome Brandi Thanks for the feature 🙂
    I know what you mean about the food. I didn’t know there was a FMS connection until recently. I started developing digestion issues around 2-3 yrs ago. You’d think I would weigh 100 lbs with the smaller amounts I eat and the healthy foods I consume. SIGH…sadly, not so. Weight is such a struggle with FMS…hmmm…I feel another post topic coming on 😉

    Long video, but worth it. I follow J.J. Virgin and Cassie Ho (Blogilates) who prescribe the same sort of eating program – I don’t want to say “diet” – which has helped me control my fibromyalgia. I have written about this on my blog, as I have found if I eat “crap” I feel the same. 🙂
