Your kidneys work 24/7 to detoxify your system. This means processing everything that goes into your body- from food to medications to environmental pollutants- and booting out substances that could harm our organs and cause symptoms of fatigue, eczema, and moodiness. It’s an exhausting job, and your kidneys deserve to be shown a little TLC every now and again.
Doing a cleanse or detox is the equivalent to giving your kidneys a nice big hug. Detoxes fill your system with whole, nutrient rich foods, and give your kidneys a break from the toxins they’re usually subject to. There are plenty of pre-constructed detox plans out there to walk you through anything from a 48 hour to 3 day detox, but there are also plenty of simple daily practices that can help with continuous detoxification or gear you up for a longer program.
Coconuts have quickly become to the health world what buffalo were to the Native Americans. That is to say, every single part of the coconut is being used to boost our healthy and tantalize our tastebuds in some way.
We put coconut milk into refreshing desserts swap out peanut butter on our toast for creamy coconut mana, create ingenious grain-free baked goods with coconut flour, stir fry our dinner in coconut oil, and, of course, sprinkle toasted coconut onto everything and everything for a taste of the tropics.
I’ve been on a baking kick lately and can’t stop making variations of breads, now that I’ve come up with an awesome mix. When you start a gluten-free and grain-free lifestyle, it seems like you will never ever eat bread again. You look longingly at people chowing down on chipotle burritos, apple pie and butter croissants. Seriously, is this it?!
With a few tweaks here and there, I was able to bake the most delicious grain free bread I’ve ever had. It was perfectly firm on the outside and soft in the inside. It didn’t harden when left out overnight. It is perfect for sandwiches and you can adapt the recipe to make banana or even peach cobbler bread.
ugar cravings can be very sneaky. When switching to a new dietary lifestyle that eliminates processed sugar, it can be very tough to say no to a few little sugary snacks here and there. The best way to beat them is creating new snacks packed with nutrients and vitamins. My answer? Gelatin gummies. They are paleo and autoimmune approved.
Made out of fruit and gelatin, these tasty snacks are the perfect way to curb those cravings. Organic fruit is loaded with vitamin goodness and gelatin can help heal your gut, benefits hormonal balance and is especially great for those with autoimmune conditions, as it has a couple of important amino acids.
If Autoimmune Paleo is a new term for you, the easiest way to describe it would be to say it takes better know Paleo diet to a whole new level.
AIP restricts the consumption of all nuts, seeds, and nightshades (peppers, potatoes, tomatoes, etc) in addition to grains, dairy, and legumes. Sound extreme? Perhaps it is for the typical diner, but the AIP diet is intended to help those with autoimmune diseases like leaky gut, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, and Rheumatoid arthritis manage and even cure their conditions by removing inflammatory foods from their diets.
