  • 1 cup water
  • 1 chopped white onion 
  • 1 can corn drained
  • 5 medium carrots chopped (2 cups) 
  • 3 celery stalks chopped
  • 1/2 tsp garlic ( i use the tube) 
  • 3 tbsp olive oil 
  • 1/2 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1 tbsp dried parsley
  • 1/2 tsp thyme 
  • 1/2 tsp celery salt
  • 1/2 tbsp bay leaves 
  • 1/2 fresh lemon squeezed 
  • salt & pepper (to taste) 
Place all ingredients in the slow cooker and stir. Cook on low for 6 hours. 
After 6 hours, add the following and cook on high for 1 hour:
  • 2 cups wide egg noodles 
  • 2 cans cooked chicken (I used a package of "Del Real" shredded cooked chicken breast = 15 oz. shredded chicken) 


I served mine up with some red wine, fancy parmesan cheese, lemon wedges and saltines.

Recovered Post From July 2015 - New Updates Coming Soon!

I wanted to post an update soon and I accidentally deleted my last post from July 2015 of this year.
Sorry about that. New posts coming soon! Also, since then I have changed my username across all platforms from afitfashionista to GretchCannon.

Hey world - I have gained a few Instagram followers lately at @afitfashionista - so I just wanted to post an update here since I haven't blogged in quite some time. I have met so many people on IG that also suffer chronic conditions, so it has given me some support and makes me feel not so alone and misunderstood. Here's me at my home yesterday. I know I don't look sick but my brain & body are suffering minute to minute all day long. I don't need sympathy I just need love and support. I need to know something one day will help me and I will be strong enough to fight till I get it. 

You can read my initial health journey story at my old website - http://www.myimplantstory.blogspot.com  it is not all that updated either but it gives the basis of my health problems that started in 2007. 

I was in remission for a long time after a short flare in 2009 and since Dec 2013 to now July 2015 I have suffered greatly - no end in sight yet. I could never imagine fighting this hard, this long. Yet I have no choice. I want some hope back and I am blessed to have a good support system of family, boyfriend and friends. The doctors still don't know what the heck to do because all of my old treatments don't work anymore -

So if you don't mind - please pray and help me with positive thoughts that one day my life will be brighter again and I won't be struggling to survive against this autoimmune disease that debilitates my brain function and sanity.
