About My Recipes

All recipes on my blog, as well as those I share with my clients, are designed to be:

  • Gluten-free and oat-free
  • Dairy-free, although sometimes organic yogurt, ghee, and a few other “approved” dairy products are optional
  • Free of nightshade vegetables
  • Nutritionally balanced and nutrient-dense
  • Formulated for optimal blood sugar balance
  • Made from real, whole foods

This is because the chronic conditions I work with respond well to these types of food choices. That said, not everyone has to be gluten-free or dairy-free or nightshade-free, and so I help each client based on their individual needs.

But they do all deserve 100% DELICIOUS!

A Note on Grains

You may have noticed I did not say “grain-free”.

That’s because it’s a myth that grains are evil or that they must be avoided at all costs in the case of autoimmune conditions such as fibromyalgia or underlying conditions such as leaky gut (a.k.a. increased intestinal permeability). A balanced approach taking bio-individuality (each individual’s personal needs) and specific choices (which grains, how they’re prepared, how/when they’re eaten, etc.) into consideration is what matters here.

A similar example when it comes to grains:  a certain percentage of my clients are ex-Paleo Diet’ers who come to me to regain their energy levels and recover important nutrient deficiencies that have manifested as a result of following this diet, which avoids pretty much all grains and legumes.

What works for one person may not work for another. There are no absolutes!
