Apple Crisp Skillet

Greetings from the great state of Idaho. I’m up here visiting family and enjoying a bit of ACTUAL fall weather. Rain, cold, wind, colorful leaves, etc. I packed all my warmest sweaters, vests, flannels, and boots. Still leggings though, always leggings. #teamspandex

It’s actually pretty comical to plop me down in the middle of cold weather. I’ve been known to get a little “testy” if I get too cold, so I’ve really been enjoying my expertly packed layers, tea, the wood-burning stove, and my new favorite apple crisp.

Chilly mornings and nights will not get you down when there’s delicious crisp to be eaten. Just fire up this recipe and you have a delicious warm nighttime snack or ‘treat yo self’ breakfast.

    Looks delish! Can’t wait to try it. On another topic – were you ever able to figure out your bloating? The last post you made about your gut repair program was quite a while ago. I have the same problem. 😦

      Hi Patty,

      Yes, in my last of the gut repair series I mentioned that I was stopping the gut repair protocol because it wasn’t making a measurable difference in my overall digestion.

      I’ve had much more success with managing my stress and anxiety level, slowing down when I eat, making note of foods that really don’t agree with my digestion (grains, high fiber foods, dairy, and sugar), and taking a high quality probiotic. I hope that helps. Digestive woes are all incredibly individual but I do think one of the MAIN helpers is reducing stress, worry, anxiety, hurrying… etc. All that central nervous system stuff has a huge impact on how you digest.

      Happy Holidays and enjoy the crisp!
