Hi, I’m Megan Wells. Food, photography, and writing is how I deal with life’s struggles (aka ulcerative colitis). But chocolate always helps too! I like to create food that I crave, that inspires me, that makes me feel better, and that gathers people around the table. Sometimes I do slow and elaborate recipes and other times I do quick and easy. I’m also a big fan of leftovers.
Ulcerative colitis can be an extremely isolating disease. This blog started as a way for me to navigate the struggles of having ulcerative colitis and to feel less isolated with the world around me.
I’m always having to adjust what I eat and sometimes food can be a little scary. I’ve gone through many ups and downs with my health since being diagnosed but my love for good food has kept me positive and ready to tackle whatever comes next.
While I mostly focus on food, occasionally I give health updates that focus on my struggles with ulcerative colitis and food.
Foodie With a J-Pouch
In May of 2016, I finally made the decision to have my entire colon removed. For three months I lived with a stoma. In August, I had my ileostomy take down surgery and am now adjusting to living with a j-pouch. This marks a new beginning for me and the blog so we’ll see where I’ll end up!
Thanks for reading!
