About Kelsey

Hi there, I’m Kelsey, thanks for visiting! Here I’m sharing my adventures–from design, travel, and photography (my greatest passions)– to any place my stomach takes me.

In July 2015, I was diagnosed with hidradenitis suppurativa (HS for short) and felt doomed, until I found the AIP Paleo (Autoimmune Protocol for Paleo) diet to find some relief and healing. Since then, I have been developing different recipes while living in the US and abroad. In late 2018, I was also diagnosed with IBS. It wasn’t a shock to me, though I am glad to have something official in my record.

I sometimes use recipes and then other times I improvise. Feel free to change up the recipes as you see fit. What I write is my recommendation from the multiple times I have tried to make the recipe. As well, I try very hard to always include spices and herbs that are great for autoimmune protocol for Paleo (or anyone else who wants additional health benefits).

Currently, I work in public health and civic tech in Baltimore. I am extremely passionate about helping others learn how to improve their bodies and lifestyles through lifestyle change. Advocacy is a huge part of my work. I want to use my blog as a way to engage with others on this topic because it can be a scary time to go through the experience of an autoimmune disease, especially if you’re doing this alone.

Feel free to reach out to me via email. To see more adventures, check out my IG/Twitter/Snapchat: @kelscrocodile or my design/photography portfolio here.
