In my previous post, Aches, Pains, Nightshade? I mentioned that the toxic buildup from nightshades might be at the root of your unexplained body issues. I don’t feel like I gave a very complete list of edible nightshades so that’s what I’m going to do here.
Common Edible Nightshades: Potatoes (except Sweet Potatoes) Tomatoes Tomatillos Peppers […]
I just read an article outlining all the ways nightshades could secretly be driving you crazy. I tend to click on articles about nightshades since my husband and I just finished a month of eating without nightshades. For the most part I’d say the results were somewhat inconclusive, meaning we didn’t really notice any changes during […]
It’s still January and we are still 100% autoimmune paleo. I’m going to share one of the recipes that we loved the first time we made it so have continued to make it all month. It’s a simple chicken stir-fry. I told you I’d have pictures and I do. I also just installed new recipe-card […]
It’s January 12th and we are well into our month of eating autoimmune paleo. The cookbook I mentioned in my first post, The Autoimmune Paleo Cookbook is great. Having a new cookbook/recipes is always a great way to rev up my cooking motivation. We’ve been doing lots of weekend cook ups. Well, […]
Happy New Year! I can’t believe it’s January already. This is my first winter in northern California and so far so great. I grew up and raised my kids in New England and then spent the last handful of years in Chicago, including last winter where I had the pleasure of enjoying the “polar vortex”. […]
Don’t let the phrases “eat organic” and “avoid GMOs” settle quietly into the every expanding hum of your life’s background noise. I am guilty of this. Everything I read, all the people in the nutrition/medical world that I respect and follow through books and social media talk endlessly about the health benefits […]
I read a blog post a while back about nutmeg and how it can actually make you sick. It was a first person account of nutmeg poisoning. Here is a link to the post if you want to read it. I can’t remember when I read this but I have thought about […]
Happy Saturday after Thanksgiving!! We were lucky enough to spend Thanksgiving with some favorite family members that we don’t see very often. It’s always so fun and always, always makes us scan the calendar for an opportunity to visit before a year or two or even three (in this case) passes. This is the year […]
My husband started a new job last July, dream job with a company he has admired and followed for years. Exciting stuff. Unfortunately, dream job is in California and we were living in Chicago with a soon to be senior in high school. Last year was a bit crazy. I was in Chicago with my […]
I am deep into my endocrine intensive class. I have about 3 weeks left and then I’ll start my next class. I LOVE this class. I LOVE hormones and all that they do. The hot mess that the body becomes due to hormone imbalance is beyond fascinating.
Hormones are everything. There’s so much information I […]
