Caterpillar Crawl: July 2016

Hey, friends! I’m back for another Caterpillar Crawl! Here are the posts that inspired me this month.

Low-FODMAP Recipes

Easy Baked Feta & Chicken from Sprint 2 the Table. Now I know what to do with that leftover feta in my fridge.

Baked Layered Ratatoille from Seasonal and Holiday Recipe Exchange. Simply omit the onion and garlic for low-FODMAP.

Toasted Coconut Macadamia Nut Butter from Healthy Helper. This. Looks. So. Greatamazingfantasticheckyeah. That is all.

Zucchini Pasta with Chicken and Scallion Avocado Sauce from Paleo Running Momma. Avocado does seem to be a FODMAP trigger for me, but with only a quarter of avocado per serving, I might be able to give this one a shot. They’re too delicious to give up entirely, besides!

Banana Coconut and Chia Popsicles from A Beautiful Mess. For all the popsicle recipes I have pinned, I seriously need to buy myself a couple molds.

Low FODMAP Zucchini Walnut Muffins from Kate Scarlata. Because zucchini is the vegetable of the hour lately at the Colorado farmers’ markets.

Fudge Popsicles from Gluten Free on a Shoestring. I actually really like the Blue Bunny ones for an “everyday” cool treat, but these are just on another level.

Chunky Monkey Banana Ice Cream Bowls from Food Faith Fitness. Have you tried banana ice cream? Because you must.

Chocolate and Peanut Butter Fudge from The Wee Foddie. Because more banana and chocolate. And so beautiful!


8 Low FODMAP Prebiotic Foods from A Little Bit Yummy. Some recent research has suggested that diminishing your intake of FODMAPs can diminish your intake of prebiotics (the stuff probiotics eat) and therefore damage your long-term gut health. It’s important to get those prebiotics in even when following the low-FODMAP diet.

Are You Ready to Reintroduce? from A Little Bit Yummy. Don’t do what I did and follow the low-FODMAP diet almost a year :S. Start reintroducing after about 2 to 6 weeks and stick with it once you’ve started.


Mirrors: The Good, the Bad, & The Ugly from A Dancer’s Live-It. Mirrors can be dangerous. Watch out.

Food Remorse from A Dancers’s Live-It. Do you ever eat something and feel like you “ruined everything?” I do. In this wonderful post, Marina reminds us why it’s not worth it to think that way.

Gaining Weight: The Unexpected and Surprising Struggle from My Little Tablespoon. If you think gaining weight is easy, think again. For folks who have been through a period of undereating, it can require a lot more calories than you would imagine!

HA: Eat More, Exercise Less, Stress Less from Eating Bird Food. Not only is regaining your menstrual cycle after a period of undereating and/or overexercising difficult, but it’s really important for your long-term health too.

Gaining Weight Is Hard from Drops of Jules. Physically, yes, but emotionally, especially.


Doing What Works from Running with Spoons. Just a reminder that there’s no one “right” way to eat.

Vitamin D: The Sunshine Vitamin from Simplifying Nutrition. I had no idea that wearing sunscreen can prevent your skin from absorbing vitamin D. Not that I’m suggesting to go without sunscreen, but good to be aware.

Low Afternoon Mood Levels – How to Deal with a ‘Bad Time of Day’ from A Life Well Red. I definitely experience a late to mid-afternoon energy slump. #morning person. Do you have a ‘bad time of the day’ too?

Root to Rise: The Dark Soil We Grow From from Elephant Journal. Stewart Moore is a colleague who recently graduated from my creative nonfiction writing program. His writing is as painfully honest as it is uplifting and inspiring. Check out his recent article about the importance of grounding, in yoga practice as in life.
