  • happy thursday🌕
i haven’t had pb banana toast in MONTHS
i had a weird food intolerance to bananas, it made me so nauseous to the point i would vomit. 
i had to give up smoothies, smoothie bowls, recipes with banana, and pb banana toast. 
i did some research to figure out the reason behind it and a banana is a food with a lot of histamine (a naturally occurring substance that collects as fruit rots) and i was very sensitive to it. 
i have also challenged myself many times to have a strictly plant based diet which did cause food sensitivities and medical problems which is why i incorporate small amounts of animal products in my diet. 
i try to be plant based and avoid animal products but with many reoccurring health problems, i found it difficult to maintain a sustainable plant based diet that didn’t cause me harm. it was really hard to cope with because i definitely believe in plant based diets and i urge myself to have as close to a “vegan lifestyle” as possible. but unfortunately for me and many others, my body just doesn’t react well. It loves a well rounded balance of all the foods and that’s okay! So I’ve learned to just eat real Whole Foods free from toxins and animal harm. 
i decided to give banana a try today and used less than 1/3 of a banana on my toast and it was delicious! 
hopefully it stays in my stomach! 
have a happy Thursday!

  • Growth happens outside of your comfort zone and so does healing!⁣
⁣
Don’t hate me for saying this but if you’ve been playing it safe by staying in your bubble, letting fear be the driver of your healing journey, it’s time to change captains! ⁣
⁣
Fear keeps us paralyzed. We don’t push our selves forward and we’re afraid to go backwards. So we stay in this in between state of what we think feels like a safe zone. Which is really just an illusion. ⁣
⁣
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve felt afraid this year in both my business and in health. ⁣
⁣
There were a lot of firsts for me, and I could tell that when I was scared, nothing would happen, until I snapped out of it and realized - it’s time to make a move Kayla!!!!⁣
⁣
When you have that feeling in your gut, like you know you want to pull the trigger but you’re scared at the same time - that’s when you know you’re ready to level up. ⁣
⁣
I remember it took me a couple weeks before I decided to hire an IBD coach. It wasn’t until I was in the hospital that I realized I couldn’t do it alone and I needed to take it higher. ⁣
⁣
Just like when I ordered my good ol’ enema bulb, and it sat on the counter for a couple weeks. Again, I was afraid but after taking the plunge (literally 😂) I immediately began to benefit. ⁣
⁣
Same with when I left my 9-5 earlier this year. Hollllllyyyyy fkkkkk was I scared! Scared to let down my team, my boss, my colleagues, my husband (WHAT IF I FAIL!? What if this whole entrepreneurship thing doesn’t work???) But I did it anyway. And I am sooo glad for that!!⁣
⁣
So. I’ve decided my word for 2020 is F*CK FEAR! 🥳✌🏻😎🙌🏻. As soon as I feel that scary gut feeling (the GOOD kind) I know it’s time to level up and move forward. ⁣
⁣
There’s SO much I want to bring to my business and to my clients! And the control freak / perfectionist in me will always try to over complicate and slow me down. But I’m not going to let it. ⁣
⁣
2020 is about moving the needle forward even when I don’t have it all figured out. It’s about diving head first into what my intuition is calling me to do, knowing the universe will always have my back. ⁣
⁣
Now I’ve told you my word for 2020 - what’s yours!?👇🏻

After a huge week at work I forced myself to go to the gym despite being absolutely brain dead and exhausted 💪 The last thing I felt like doing was going to the shops and cooking so I’ve put together this super quick dinner from leftovers in the fridge 😁

Bed of spinach, zoodles with pesto and peas with a veggie burger and of course hot chili sauce 🌶

  • Dear Santa,

I’ve been very good this year. I’ve kept to a strict diet and avoided the foods that bother me. All I want from you this year are the following:

Dairy
Eggs
Soy
Peanuts
Quinoa
Corn
Rice

I’ll leave some gluten free, grain free, dairy free cookies for you out by the tree along with some coconut milk.

Signed,

The Food Challenged Guy

  • The last thing you want to try is another pill.⁣
⁣
Maybe it’s because…⁣
⚡️you invested in the “perfect solution” and it didn’t fix you⁣
⚡️you hated the pill regimen your last naturopath had you on⁣
⚡️you remember all the diets that say food can solve all your problems⁣
⁣
So you can’t bear to take one more. It’ll sit there, you’ll regret buying it, it ain’t happening.⁣
⁣
But here’s the thing, supplements (when chosen wisely!) are a great way to heal faster, more easily and certainly more comfortably.⁣
⁣
You’re just stuck in a thought loop and need a way out! Be grateful you have the opportunity to support your body through this, not pouty that you have this broken body to fix. Focus on the good. Focus on how it makes you feel. Focus on taking care of yourself, and what a gift that is. (Because newsflash: your body may feel broken but it’s stronger than you know.)⁣
⁣
And if that isn’t enough, look for sneaky ways to add them in. Say no to the pills and opt for powders and liquids that can serve as “smoothie boosters” or be sipped as tea.⁣

  • Food allergy or food intolerance? According to expert Dr. Brian E. Lacy, true food allergies are not common and only occur in one to three percent of adults, in contrast to the large number of adults with reported food intolerances. A true food allergy is characterized by symptoms that occur reproducibly on exposure to a given food, rapidly (often within minutes), and which are absent when avoiding that specific food. Food allergies occur rapidly, are reproducible with a food challenge and can usually be identified with either a skin prick test or serologic testing. 
Food intolerances are quite common, especially in patients with functional gastrointestinal disorders, such as IBS (approximately 2/3 of patients). Food intolerances develop more slowly, are frequently not reproducible, and cannot reliably be identified with current technology.

  • Do you know this food? Chances are you eat it daily many times..... S O Y

Soybeans are in the legume family, which also includes foods such as kidney beans, peas, lentils, and peanuts. Whole, immature soybeans are also known as edamame. Although primarily associated with tofu, soy is found in many unexpected, processed you consume many times a day such as:

condiments like Worcestershire sauce and mayonnaise

natural and artificial flavorings

vegetable broths and starches

meat substitutes

fillers in processed meat, like chicken nuggets

frozen meals

most Asian foods

certain brands of cereal

some peanut butters....and much more!! Soy is one of the “Big Eight” allergens, along with cow’s milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, fish, and shellfish.

There are at least 28 possible irritant causing proteins in soybeans that have been identified. However, most reactions are only caused by a few.

I see a lot of intolerances to soy come through simply because todays diet is overloaded with soy consumption. 
The body may rebel with

abdominal pain

diarrhea

nausea

vomiting

runny nose, wheezing, or trouble breathing

itchy mouth

skin reactions including hives and rashes

itching and swelling.....or however your body decides to manifest processing the proteins in soy causing you issues. 
Sound like you or someone you know? Know what you are putting in your body.

  • What is food intolerance?

A food intolerance is difficulty digesting certain foods and having an unpleasant physical reaction to them.

What are the differences between Allergies and Intolerances
A food allergy:

Is a reaction from your immune system – your immune system mistakenly treats proteins found in food as a threat

Can trigger various allergy symptoms that come on rapidly

Is often to particular items – common food allergies in adults are to fish and shellfish and nuts, and in children to milk and eggs as well as to peanuts, other nuts and fish

Can be serious

A food intolerance:

Doesn’t involve your immune system – there is no allergic reaction, and it is never life-threatening

Causes symptoms that come on more slowly, often after many hours

Only results in symptoms if you consume reasonable amounts of the food (unlike an allergy, where just traces can trigger a reaction)

Can be caused by many different items

Food intolerances and sensitivities more often display symptoms that are related to the digestive system. Individual extreme cases are also linked to chronic conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome and chronic fatigue. The most common symptoms include: 
Bloating

Fatigue

Headaches

Changes in bowel movements

Skin conditions 
Malabsorption due to inflammation along the digestive tract manifests in many different ways depending on the individual. 
Even though not as immediately as serious as an allergy, don't underestimate the havoc intolerances and sensitivities can have.

If you are curious about this and or your nutritional imbalances give us a try.

  • Join me on a healing trip of a lifetime to Switzerland, to our annual detox retreat in July! It's at a gorgeous clinic in the Alps, for a Liver Detox to help you heal, and come home feeling amazing. ⠀
::⠀
This testimonial is from one of our guests during our 2019 trip in October and November from Paula who came all the way from Brazil to Detox with us:⠀
::⠀
"My experience at the clinic surpassed my expectations. The array of treatments, put together, revealed to be very efficient, for my body responded so well to the liver detox. ⠀
::⠀
During my first 3 days at the clinic, I was so sleepy, no energy even to read⠀
and I was coming from a long and calm stay in Lisbon, so there was, apparently, no reason for this lethargy.⠀
::⠀
Everything changed after the "great flush". I felt SO well, as if I had a sun inside my chest, for I felt such a happiness, a wellbeing feeling⠀
that was awesome. And full of energy!⠀
::⠀
The clinic is indeed in a very beautiful area and it was important to have Dr. Tom's group, for it enriched the experience with the exchange⠀
of information and friendship. ⠀
::⠀
And having you and Dr. Tom with us, clearing our doubts with earnestness and kindness was a plus.⠀
::⠀
I have been talking to my friends about my experience with great enthusiasm. I think it is an experience we have to go through at least once and see the difference in our bodies. I also intend to repeat it."⠀
::⠀
Paula, Brazil⠀
::⠀
::⠀
I hope you’ll join ME there in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! ⠀
::⠀
My friend Robyn Openshaw, @TheGreenSmoothieGirl is a wellness researcher and author, who traveled to 20 clinics all over the world, interviewing dozens of doctors to find the BEST clinic in the world for healing. THIS is that place. ⠀
::⠀
She’s put together a (free) online class sharing photos and info about the incredible treatments and diagnostics, at the very best clinic Robyn found in her worldwide search. (It’s much more affordable than other clinics she visited!)⠀
::⠀

    Everything changed after the "great flush". I felt SO well, as if I had a sun inside my chest, for I felt such a happiness, a wellbeing feeling⠀
    that was awesome. And full of energy!⠀
    ::⠀
    The clinic is indeed in a very beautiful area and it was important to have Dr. Tom's group, for it enriched the experience with the exchange⠀
    of information and friendship. ⠀
    ::⠀
    And having you and Dr. Tom with us, clearing our doubts with earnestness and kindness was a plus.⠀
    ::⠀
    I have been talking to my friends about my experience with great enthusiasm. I think it is an experience we have to go through at least once and see the difference in our bodies. I also intend to repeat it."⠀

    I hope you’ll join ME there in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! ⠀
    ::⠀
    My friend Robyn Openshaw, @TheGreenSmoothieGirl is a wellness researcher and author, who traveled to 20 clinics all over the world, interviewing dozens of doctors to find the BEST clinic in the world for healing. THIS is that place. ⠀
    ::⠀
    She’s put together a (free) online class sharing photos and info about the incredible treatments and diagnostics, at the very best clinic Robyn found in her worldwide search. (It’s much more affordable than other clinics she visited!)⠀

  • I gave The Mike the option of pizza or Mac n Cheese, and he *shocked* me by choosing homemade mac n cheese!

Brown rice pasta, leftover hamburger, and then in a skillet I made the cheese sauce: onion, garlic, 2T butter, 1T flour blend,  2 slices of sharp Cheddar cheese (cause we didn't have any other on hand), 3 slices of American cheese, whisked together. I cooked up the little broccoli we had on hand to add some pizzazz...okay, color. We needed green color in the dish 🙂

  • It’s time for a check up for my little one to see how her gut health is going and to also check for nutrient deficiencies. 
Lately I’ve noticed an eczema flare up on her cheeks, which I suspect is a reaction to perfume and aftershave but we will soon see. 
I started testing my daughter when she was only 9 months old (she is 2.5 now) as she was having trouble sleeping, very gassy and had patches of eczema. We discovered she wasn’t tolerating dairy or wheat very well and eliminating those foods made a huge difference. 
She also had some bacterial imbalances which we were able to balance through probiotics and herbs. 
Unfortunately babies are not always just born with good gut health, and there are many factors that can disrupt their microbiome. For example being born via c section, using anti-biotics, formula feeding and other medications such as steroids or Panadol can have an impact on gut health. 
The health of the mothers microbiome is also a factor as it is passed on to the baby, so if you’ve suffered gut problems yourself then you may need to to support your Bub also. 
Taking a probiotic during pregnancy can help to eliminate these types of issues and also using a good quality probiotic while breastfeeding or giving your Bub one directly if formula feeding is beneficial also.

It’s always best to speak to a qualified practitioner before introducing any type of probiotics to your baby.

  • A major part of healing the gut is understanding how your body reacts to different foods. There are different types of reactions, which we call either allergies, sensitivities, or intolerances.
.
-Food allergies cause immediate reaction to food - this can be anything from itching to diarrhea to anaphylaxis. People with a food allergy should avoid eating that food entirely!
-Food sensitivities are sneaky and tricky to identify! They can take up to 3 days to show up, often as less obvious symptoms such as nausea, diarrhea, headaches, joint pain, fatigue, and more.
-Food intolerances are digestive issues - not immune responses. For example, in lactose intolerance, people can eat as much lactose as amount of lactase (the enzyme that digests lactose) as they have. once they’ve eaten past the threshold of what their body can digest, they will feel nauseous, bloated, etc. .
If you’re reacting to food or suspect any of these issues, it’s important not to try major eliminations on your own. Make sure an RD helps you identify your problem foods and safely reintroduces the ones that have been deemed safe!

  • THE KETOGENIC DIET AND THYROID
.
.
If you’re thinking of trying the Keto diet (very low-carb, high-fat diet), let me give you a few pointers...
.
.
1) Humans need healthy carbs to thrive. You may experience weight loss (and/or other benefits) at first on the Keto diet, but long term your health will suffer and can culminate in depression, hormone imbalance, stress and conditions such as thyroid disorders.
.
.
2) On the Keto diet, carbs are restricted to less than 50g a day!! This means you lose out on a large variety of fibre sources from healthy carbohydrates such as potatoes, squash, whole grain bread, brown rice, fruit etc .
.
3) A diet low in fibre is a big problem for your gut health because when your gut bugs break down fibre, they produce Short Chain Fatty Acids (SFCA’s) which keep your gut lining healthy and strong so that you don’t develop a permeable gut wall (this can lead to autoimmune thyroid and many other health issues). .
.
4) Severely restricting an entire food group will ultimately lead to repeatedly eating the same foods and this often leads to food intolerances because variety is SUPER important to gut health and it’s very difficult to eat a varied diet when focusing so heavily on fat and protein. .
.
There may be some medical conditions that a short-term Keto diet is useful for but it’s a very unsociable, obsessive, restrictive and ultimately unrealistic way to eat when leading a busy life and trying to maintain a healthy diet. It also means focusing on animal products rather a lot and it’s getting more difficult to find good quality meat/fish/dairy (void of pesticides and artificial hormones) so in fact eating less of it is a better idea.
.
.
I hope this helps. Any questions down below please x 👇🏼

  • “You risk to become healthy” writes Dr Massimo Citro...if you work on your food intolerances. Indeed, they take a huge part in our wellbeing and health. Your runny nose, your headaches, your joint pain, your eczema may improve when you avoid the food or even better, when you reset the brain so that the body no longer think they are ennemies. #totalresetmethode #foodintolerances ##eczemarelief

  • Eczema and Strawberries.
🍓 🍓 🍓

Did you know that strawberries are a common trigger for eczema in children under 3years of age?

Studies show that approximately 6-8% of children suffering with eczema, have strawberries as a common trigger food. Although this doesn’t seem like much; that’s still 1/12 kids that I see in clinic.

It does tend to affect children more commonly observed between 1-3years of age; with them usually growing out of it.

Strawberries are part of the Rosaceae family; with other foods such as pears, peaches, cherries, apples, raspberries, blackberries, plums and almonds also belonging to this group.

So if you notice strawberries are a trigger for you or your child, keep in mind the foods mentioned above as there might be a Cross reaction between the Rosaceae family.

Although there are more prominent food groups that can contribute to eczema such as gluten, dairy and soy; remember that strawberries are a player in this game as well.

  • THIS WEEK'S RECIPE: ⠀
::⠀
::⠀
ZUCCHINI PASTA WITH SALMON AND ARTICHOKES⠀
BY LISA STIMMER, @lifestyle.consulting⠀
::⠀
SERVES 4⠀
::⠀
6 zucchinis, medium to large, firm and straight, cut into “noodles”* 2 pounds fresh wild salmon fillets (skin removed)⠀
Sea salt and pepper⠀
2 tablespoons high-heat cooking oil (avocado or grapeseed)⠀
3 tablespoons olive oil⠀
4 tablespoons shallots, minced⠀
4 cloves garlic, minced⠀
8 artichoke hearts (in water), quartered⠀
1 lemon, zested and juiced⠀
4 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley⠀
Pinch of cayenne⠀
6 slices crumbled crispy turkey bacon, crispy bacon, or crispy pancetta⠀
::⠀
::⠀
1. Salt the zucchini noodles, let sit for a few minutes, then massage and squeeze the water out of them. Make sure to drain any excess liquid.⠀
::⠀
2. Season the salmon with salt and pepper. In a large pan, heat the avocado oil over medium to high heat. Add the salmon top side down and sear till golden and crispy, then turn over to finish cooking. Cover only with a splatter screen, or it will not get crispy.⠀
::⠀
3. In a wok or large pan over medium heat, add the olive oil and shallots and cook until soft. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute.⠀
::⠀
4. Add the zucchini noodles, increase the heat to medium-high, and cook for 2 minutes. Add the artichokes and lemon zest, stir to combine, and cook for 1 minute. ⠀
::⠀
Turn off the heat and add the parsley, lemon juice, and cayenne and stir to combine. Add the bacon and adjust seasonings to taste.⠀
::⠀
5. Distribute evenly on 4 plates or low bowls. Place the salmon on top and serve with extra lemon. Enjoy!⠀
::⠀
::⠀
* ZUCCHINI NOODLE VARIETIES⠀
To make zucchini “fettuccine”: Use a potato peeler. The peeler method will give you long flat noodles or lengthwise ribbons. Peel off several from one side, then turn the zucchini and peel off more. Continue to turn and peel away ribbons, until you get to the seeds at the core of the zucchini. Discard the core.⠀

  • Growth happens outside of your comfort zone and so does healing!⁣
⁣
Don’t hate me for saying this but if you’ve been playing it safe by staying in your bubble, letting fear be the driver of your healing journey, it’s time to change captains! ⁣
⁣
Fear keeps us paralyzed. We don’t push our selves forward and we’re afraid to go backwards. So we stay in this in between state of what we think feels like a safe zone. Which is really just an illusion. ⁣
⁣
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve felt afraid this year in both my business and in health. ⁣
⁣
There were a lot of firsts for me, and I could tell that when I was scared, nothing would happen, until I snapped out of it and realized - it’s time to make a move Kayla!!!!⁣
⁣
When you have that feeling in your gut, like you know you want to pull the trigger but you’re scared at the same time - that’s when you know you’re ready to level up. ⁣
⁣
I remember it took me a couple weeks before I decided to hire an IBD coach. It wasn’t until I was in the hospital that I realized I couldn’t do it alone and I needed to take it higher. ⁣
⁣
Just like when I ordered my good ol’ enema bulb, and it sat on the counter for a couple weeks. Again, I was afraid but after taking the plunge (literally 😂) I immediately began to benefit. ⁣
⁣
Same with when I left my 9-5 earlier this year. Hollllllyyyyy fkkkkk was I scared! Scared to let down my team, my boss, my colleagues, my husband (WHAT IF I FAIL!? What if this whole entrepreneurship thing doesn’t work???) But I did it anyway. And I am sooo glad for that!!⁣
⁣
So. I’ve decided my word for 2020 is F*CK FEAR! 🥳✌🏻😎🙌🏻. As soon as I feel that scary gut feeling (the GOOD kind) I know it’s time to level up and move forward. ⁣
⁣
There’s SO much I want to bring to my business and to my clients! And the control freak / perfectionist in me will always try to over complicate and slow me down. But I’m not going to let it. ⁣
⁣
2020 is about moving the needle forward even when I don’t have it all figured out. It’s about diving head first into what my intuition is calling me to do, knowing the universe will always have my back. ⁣
⁣
Now I’ve told you my word for 2020 - what’s yours!?👇🏻

    So. I’ve decided my word for 2020 is F*CK FEAR! 🥳✌🏻😎🙌🏻. As soon as I feel that scary gut feeling (the GOOD kind) I know it’s time to level up and move forward. ⁣

    There’s SO much I want to bring to my business and to my clients! And the control freak / perfectionist in me will always try to over complicate and slow me down. But I’m not going to let it. ⁣

    2020 is about moving the needle forward even when I don’t have it all figured out. It’s about diving head first into what my intuition is calling me to do, knowing the universe will always have my back. ⁣

    Now I’ve told you my word for 2020 - what’s yours!?👇🏻

  • Our food issues can weigh us down to the point it feels like they’re all we ever think about. Talk about exhausting!
.
Over time, I’ve learned how to keep myself from letting them consume me by finding things in life that bring me joy and help me forget my situation, even if it’s temporary.
.
1️⃣ A Sense of Humor: This is so incredibly important! If I couldn’t laugh at my situation, I would fall apart. I keep it lighthearted and try to find humor in the ridiculous situations my food issues land me in.
.
2️⃣ Exercise: Getting my blood pumping and releasing those endorphins makes a world of difference in my attitude. It keeps me optimistic and I feel more confident in myself when my issues land me in difficult scenarios.
.
3️⃣ Finding Others Like Me: Joining this Instagram community has been the best thing to ever happen to me. Connecting with people who understand the struggles of being food challenged makes me feel so much less alone!
.
4️⃣ Sarcasm: My speciality! There’s a fine line between sarcasm and cynicism and I try to keep it as light as possible, but it really helps me get through each day. It’s not for everyone, but it works for me.
.
5️⃣ Having an Outlet: I think we all need some form of expression to let out all the pent up emotions that come along with living with food issues. For me, that’s this blog! I can channel all my feelings into my posts and it’s so cathartic.
.
6️⃣ Wine: I’m not afraid to say it. I have a glass of wine or two several evenings a week. It’s something I look forward to, especially after a day of thinking about foods I can’t eat. It helps take the edge off. Just don’t abuse it!
.
What have you found helps you cope with your food challenges? I’d love to see if we can bounce ideas off one another! Let me know below!
