Fibroids, Ultrasound, MRI and UFE during a pandemic

This has been a two year journey so far I am not sure why I have been procrastinating on writing this. I think it’s very important to that woman talk about their experiences. I did not know what fibroids were until I was diagnosed with them.   I went to my doctor one day because it had been a few months since I had a period. Previous to that I was getting them every 2-4 weeks. There was no chance that I was pregnant and I had started a job where I was the only female in the office. In the past my cycle was influenced by other woman. I was not around any so I originally thought it was normal then I wondered if I was going into early menopause. I was in my forties and started my period when I was 10.  My doctor assured me that because I have hypothyroidism and low iron irregular cycles are normal. I have a good doctor so she decided to take a look at my pelvis she noticed it was swollen. Then she told me to go get an ultrasound. It is easy to get an ultrasound appointment here. I have ne

October 30, 2017 Healthy Flourless Vegan Fudge Brownies, Facebook recipe #3

The link to the original recipe no longer works; however it is from Big Man's World healthy flourless Fudge Brownies. The link for the original video is on livingvancouverloca's facebook page which can be found here https://www.facebook.com/livingvancouverloca/.

I could only watch the video and not find the original recipe so this is not an exact recipe; however it turned out okay.


There are only 5 ingredients and my version is vegan since I used vegan chocolate chips

 sweet potato, cocoa powder, almond butter for the brownies. My friend gave me the giant potato and I steamed it but not long enough.
 The original recipe says to heat the nut butter but I don't have a microwave so I decided that I could mash the potato and mix the butter in the blender of my magic bullet. It didn't work very well and I had to add water to mix it a little.
 In the end I came out with a decent looking batter. The original recipe calls for cooking at 350 for 25 minutes. I cooked in the toaster oven with a bigger sweet potato so I cooked for 40 minutes at 350.
 Then for the icing melt chocolate chips and coconut milk. I used my steamer pot to melt it but I originally put too much milk in.
 Too much milk means more chocolate
 now they are frosted
 I have this left over chocolate if I freeze it will turn to ice cream?
Final result I am not a fan. They are not sweet enough and have a bit of a dry texture. I may try this again using pumpkin or banana instead of sweet potato.

What I am a fan of is the frozen chocolate it tastes great and the texture is like that of a cheaper vegan ice cream. I think if I mix a frozen banana in it next time I will get a really great chocolate soft serve.
