Spinach And Ricotta Pie Recipe For Happy Ovaries

Spinach and ricotta pie

Last Saturday I made my way on a ridiculously GORGEOUS Melbourne winter's morning to the Melbourne Museum to Nat Kringoudis's Debunking Stress seminar*. I have a few "brain crushes" on people, meaning I kinda have the hots for their brains. Nat's brain is one I have a total teenage-girl-drawing-love-hearts-and-initials-on-my-notebook crush on.

What to eat when you don't know what to eat

It's been almost three weeks since the beginning of my pain flare-up. I am battling not only with constant pain, but also with debilitating exhaustion. I am in a constant mind-fog which makes it really difficult to do any work and I find it difficult to look at screens (computer, phone, TV) for longer than about an hour. Although movement is important to my recovery, I have barely had the energy to go for a walk to the shops.

During this time I also haven’t had much appetite during the day, which doesn’t really help when I am...
