To Eat And What To Eat, That Is The Question

Grain free, gluten free, whole grain, Paleo, Keto, lectin free, fermented, non-fermented, low sodium, plant based, dairy free, nut free, allergen free. What am I supposed to eat to keep me healthy???!!!

I know, right? There is information overload and so much contradictory information out there.  For me, I cannot do Keto eating. As fabulous, life giving, weight balancing as it is, my body does not metabolize fats and proteins well and so I cannot live a keto lifestyle.  I also cannot do 100% plant based because me, beans and especially grains (whole, soaked, or gluten free) are  not besties-most beans make me Gas Bomb Betty and grains for the most part burn in my stomach and/or get super bloated. Dairy and I have an off and on relationship, so I only consume small amounts of organic butter or cream (again bloating and gas).

I also know people thriving on Keto, 100% plant based, Paleo, etc. And then there seems to be a turning point where something changes in their body and they have a health issue and need to adjust.  Or not.  They do not put 2+2 together and believe they need to change their eating and maybe continue with their lifestyles and add on whatever will fix that specific issue.

Plus you do need to take into consideration if you have been eating a vegan/100% plant based lifestyle for a prolonged period of time, your body is no longer making the digestive enzymes needed to digest animal product and you can get sick from jumping feet first into animal protein again.  So, start with fish or eggs and then work your way up the food channel.

What about fermented foods? Some are super beneficial but if you have certain autoimmune issues, they may be contradictory.  Same with bone broth.  While super nourishing and healing, some people get major migraines and nausea from it.  That is due to toxicity in the body all ready as well as other factors.

Is there a one size fits all for eating healthy?  No.  That is why I published my Real Language Of Food Constructive Recipes For A Healthier You.  It is a baby step recipe book for those wanting to dabble in food antagonists and what works in your body.  It is an elimination protocol that gives you multiple recipes and options.  I went under the notion that everyone knows how to cook a protein and that finding the veggie dishes to go with is what is the difficult part.  You can find it on Amazon and on my website.

My point is, read, educate yourself and experiment to see what works for you.  And when your body’s season shifts and what had been working for you no longer does, know that you will play the elimination game again and still find tasty ways to eat. And I am always here to help you find recipes and options for you.

As a Holistic Chef and foodie, I am in continual search of practical, tasty, healthy options to help people with when they are sick and tired of being sick and tired. Seeing changes in my life from the food I eat (I was hypoglycemic in high school and found that by I could control my sugar by what I ate) I approach health from a food aspect first. As Hippocrates said "Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food". Food has the power of life and healing inside of it. I am here to provide you with the keys to unlock that power inside of you.

  1. I love that you “get” our screwy bodies! Finally, there is someone who doesn’t think we’re all a bunch of whining crackpots and that what we are feeling isn’t all in our heads! If one more doctor tells me that my pain is “all in your head” I’m going to puke on his/her shoes! 🤣🤣 What we eat truly affects us in a unique way depending on our particular issue (that we may or may not even be aware we have)! You’ve given us clarity on this issue and a place to begin and hopefully end the futility of what has been the nightmare of our lives. Thank you for these books which have truly saved my life! I’m a new person because of the elimination diets and the awareness of what I should and should put in my mouth, thanks to you!
