After a month of dancing around my results from @immunolabs - I'm finally ready to face them. It's true what they say...the things you can't imagine giving up often end up on the chopping block.
I keep looking at my awesome reminder: eat well, feel well, live well. Even though I've felt like I've eaten very well- certain food sensitivities develop that cause your body to have an inflammatory reaction. There were some things listed on my results that I already knew, others that really made me double take. One thing I know: is that I've not been feeling great- I am constantly puffy, tired, and have poor digestion.
I've tried so many things to help heal my gut- unsuccessfully. An elimination protocol to stop the inflammation is the next logical step. It's not forever (I remind myself daily). Though I'm currently having all the feels- I am trying to embrace it as another step in the very long journey to healing my bod after years of ignoring it.
If ya had to guess what would be the hardest things for me to give up...what would you say? Ps. This meal is totes a-ok. Plantains, carrots, ground beef, brussels, kraut. 17.1 is about to go down. Or I am. #cookbycolor#foodismedicine
Gluten. The more I try to avoid it, the more I'm eating it.
The more you deny something, the more it will haunt you. I don't think we should avoid gluten completely, unless if someone is intolerant of course.
I used to feel guilty when I ate any types of gluten, so as I result I was eating it all day.
The key is really to just watch and listen to your body.
Couscous, or wholewheat, spelt pastas are not equal to usual white flour. Especially if they're organic.

Though I'm not a fan of eating bread- in the morning-this banana-cinnamon toast is quite amazing, inspired by the beautiful @anniejaffrey
