Try an elimination diet.
Clean out your kitchen.
Keep a journal.
Eliminate potential allergens.Start by eliminating gluten, dairy, coffee, and sugar. When you move beyond the threshold of these foods, you will see how many more delicious new ingredients there are to try!
- gluten, try buckwheat, brown rice, quinoa, amaranth, teff, millet, and oats;
- sugar, try applesauce, dates, figs, and little bits of raw honey;
- coffee, try green tea or a coffee substitute like Dandy Blend;
- dairy, try almond or rice milk.
If you would like to do a more in-depth elimination diet, I can help you by customizing recipes, prep + meal plans to eliminate these common allergens as well: corn, peanuts, soy, eggs, chocolate, vinegar, yeast, low-quality fats + oils, fatty meat, beans.
After the elimination phase, start re-introducing the foods that you excluded for 2 weeks. You will notice immediately that, when you challenge your body with offensive foods, it will react!
The elimination diet takes a little bit of planning and coordination, but it is simple to do and can make a huge difference in your health!
