Going Grain-Free has been a beautiful blessing for me

Difficult to do, but with amazing health and wellness benefits.

I did this with the help and support of others, and I’m here to offer the same to you.

Here’s the basic rundown:

It’s easier to say what’s safe to eat:

  • 100% grass-fed, grass-finished beef.
  • buffalo/bison
  • lobster, scallops that were fresh-caught in healthy waters
  • local fruits and veggies that are not legumes (no beans, stay away from broccoli in the beginning so that your thyroid picks back up)
  • citrus and pineapple are still working for me, but test for yourself
  • microgreens, especially broccoli (I know!  but powerful healing for your liver, which is necessary for your body, moods, and mind to work well)
  • olive oil that’s actually organic and not filled with “fake”
  • truly raw honey
  • cacao
  • maca powder
  • coconut oil: raw, unfiltered, cold-pressed
  • Redmond’s Salt
  • organic herbs & spices (stay away from the ground stuff if you can)
  • walnuts, almonds, and pecans from Mariani

Heal your detox system at the same time:

  • use herbs/essiac to assist
  • get good sleep
  • walk at least 30 minutes/day (if you can)
  • do yoga
  • do mudras
  • hot salt baths
  • massage
  • dance
  • laugh

Keep track of your weight and waist measurements first thing in the morning (after bathrooming).  They are the fastest hard data that show what’s healthy for you or not.  Use a journal and record your measurements, foods, activites, moods, dreams — everything.  Then you can figure out what works for you.  For me, I gain a pound or two per day for each “infraction” — and they’re tiny, like a nibble of bread, nothing to do with calories or moderation — and I lose a pound or two per day when I eat right, until I get to a healthy weight for me and everything levels off and maintains for years.

It can take 2 years for your intestines to heal, but you can start feeling better overall within just a day or two.  More energy, more pep in your step, lighter moods, your joints will un-swell, it will be easier to get up in the morning, and to rise up from your chair during the day.

What has thrown me off over the years?  Surgery, broken bones, toxic food and water that was labeled as safe.  But the joy and exhilaration of a healthy body is more than worth the effort.

Each person has to find what’s best for them, through thoughtful trial and error.  With a little coaching, you can avoid much of the error!  Contact me below and let me know how I can help you.
