Healing Leaky Gut with Glutamine

Leaky gut syndrome has been gaining more attention in recent years, though mainstream medical providers are sometimes still unaware of its implications. As we become more and more affected by poor dietary choices, bacterial imbalances in the GI tract, stress, and overall toxic overload, the prevalence of leaky gut syndrome is on the rise. A growing body of research suggests that leaky gut syndrome can be a precursor to some serious health conditions. Glutamine (or L-Glutamine, as it is also known), can be a key in healing this disorder.

Gluten-free lemon bars that will make your holiday party

These reinvented gluten-free lemon bars are bursting with bright citrus flavors and are perfectly balanced by a light, buttery crust. We’ve taken out the processed sugars and refined flour for our version of the classic lemon bar. Instead, you’ll find a simple crust made from almond and coconut flours and a flavorful lemon filling without artificial or refined sweeteners. You can serve these at any function and no one will guess you’ve removed the inflammation-causing ingredients from the traditional version.

Why You Need to Reward Yourself With This Coconut Blueberry Cake

Every once in awhile, I like to give the community recipes for treats that might not fall into the Gut Program or Cleanse Program guidelines. Something to enjoy post-cleanse when you’re still trying to incorporate many of the principles of Clean but might be a bit more lenient on ingredients. This coconut blueberry cake, which I discovered on one of my favourite food and photography blogs, Roost, contains eggs, (lots of them!) but even for those who may have a sensitivity to eggs, like myself, I find that when they’re in something baked, they’re fine. And of course, as we’ve mentioned before, the higher quality (pastured, local) eggs you use, the better they are for you. The large number of eggs is why the fiber rich coconut flour works so well in this recipe.

Almond Flour Waffles Are the Best Thing to Ever Happen

Summer is in full swing, and that means the kids are out of school and enjoying beach adventures, road trips, visits from friends, and celebrations. There are lazy summer mornings as well as jam-packed days. This means we need fuel for these unpredictable summer days, and these almond flour waffles are my absolute favorite solution. These almond flour waffles are fun, celebratory, and are perfect for family brunches, breakfast for dinner, unique desserts, and you can even freeze them to use as needed for snacks on-the-go. They only require a waffle iron (available in many different sizes and prices, I’ve seen them for as little as 20 dollars), and they hold a variety of toppings. You can put the toppings right inside the waffles as we’ve done in the recipe below.
