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.

Why You Need to Reward Yourself With This Coconut Blueberry Cake

cocoblueberrylayercake-17

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.

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.

My Life As a Gluten-Free Girl: How I Made the Shift

glutenfreegirlbikeridinghero.jpg

“Gluten-free” is becoming quite the diet buzzword these days, so I wanted to dig into this a bit more and explore why being a gluten-free girl is important for me and how it plays into my diet. What is gluten?Gluten is the protein found in wheat and some other grains. One problem is that gluten damages the gut lining and increases intestinal permeability. This is why we usually recommend a gluten-free diet as a reset button, usually in conjunction with some advanced digestive support.
