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

Vegan Noodle Soup





If you don't have a soup maker I really love mine. I bought it years ago it is a kettle with a blender in it where you just put the ingredients in press the timer and in 25-28 minutes you have soup. This recipe can be made in a pot but I made it in the soup maker.


 Ingredients 

Vegan Broth
1 Sweet Potato cut into pieces
half a white onion sliced
3 small carrots  (I was practicing with my spiralizer)
1 package smoked tofu
curry spice
pepper
rice noodles
additional water 
1 tsp olive oil


I had never used the carrot spiralizing tool before and I forgot I had carrots. I tried to use it on a sweet potato it didn't work so that is why this soup has carrots and sweet potato in it.

I found the soup maker works best if you use a little bit of fat in it which is why I added olive oil. Add the oil, onion, sweet potato, spices, broth and fill to the line with water.



Plug the soup maker in and select chunky for the type of soup. The alarm will sound in 28 minutes so you can go do something else. I used to come home from work put the soup on do a 25 minute workout and when the workout was done I would eat soup for dinner. I am trying to get into that routine but that is another blog post.



 I like smoked tofu crispy so I pan fried some of the pieces.


When the soup maker timer goes off add the rice noodles, non fried tofu, and carrots to the soup maker.

There is no short timer on the soup maker so put the lid back on set the soup maker to chunky. Set a manual timer for 3 minutes and unplug the soup maker after the 3 minutes is up.


I took the picture after I poured most of the broth into the bowl. After my bowl of soup I had noodles for the rest of the week.

Pour soup into a bowl and top with pan fried tofu. Enjoy.
