How Ashley Overcame Fibromyalgia Using Real Food and Exercise

Ashley says she’s lucky that she was diagnosed with fibromyalgia at the age of 30. It’s a diagnosis that isn’t always easy to get, but at a young age Ashley felt she still had a lot of options to try to treat her illness without medication.

After consulting with her doctor, Ashley decided to adopt a low-inflammation diet (lots of vegetables and fruits, no fried foods and minimal processed foods), along with a low impact exercise regimen of yoga and walking 10,000 steps per day.

In this instance, Ashley’s history of dieting may have actually been helpful, since she found it relatively easy to overhaul her healthstyle to make these changes, and it only took about three months for her symptoms to start improving dramatically.

An added bonus is that Ashley’s new habits have helped her deal with stress and emotional issues she has struggled with on and off throughout her life, and she’s been able to stay off of antidepressants for four years.

This is a fun conversation and we go into a lot of details about her morning routine, eating habits and favorite meals. Ashley was also kind enough to share with us a few of her favorite recipes below.

Cauliflower Pizza Crust

1 head of cauliflower
1 egg
1 to 2 tsp oregano
1/4 c parmesan cheese grated
1/2 c mozzarella – shredded
garlic salt and pepper to taste

Rice the cauliflower in a food processor. Cook in microwave safe bowl for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, mix egg, oregano, cheeses and spices in stand mixer. Take cauliflower out of microwave and dump onto a large, clean tea towel. Fold towel over and use rolling pin to remove moisture from cauliflower. Add dry cauliflower rice to mixer and mix with other ingredients. Place parchment paper on a cookie sheet or round pizza pan. Put cauliflower mix onto parchment and shape into pizza crust. To freeze, cover with wax paper, then aluminum foil (tightly) and pop in freezer. I make at least two at a time, because it’s kind of messy and time consuming––worth it for dinner!

Dirty Turkey Rice
1 yellow onion
1 green pepper
1 lb ground turkey – I use Aldi Fit and Active brand
2 cups of cooked, long grain brown rice
one can organic black beans
olive oil

Chop onion and pepper, sauté in olive oil until onions are translucent. Remove from pan, and add turkey to pan. Brown turkey and season with black pepper and Cajun seasoning (we like Tony Chachere Cajun seasoning). Add vegetables back to pan, add beans and mix. Season with more Cajun seasoning or black pepper to taste.
