Testimony of the Day
“Hi Maria! I just wanted to show you a quick update after being on your diet for 5 days!! I’ve attached a before and after picture. My itchy, rashy legs have always looked their worse when i’m in a bath or shower; they are always there, but something about the hot water would make them very red and more noticeable than they already were. The “before” picture is how my legs would look while bathing for the last 3 or so years. I was so happy to take a bath tonight and realize they are almost all gone! I just wanted to thank you again for saving my skin!” Malorie

WILD RICE and RICE NOODLES
Another question I am frequently asked is about wild rice. Yes, it is gluten free, but for those with a damaged gut (leaky gut) or a damaged metabolism or anyone who wants to become keto-adapted, it is way too high in carbs.
It is disturbing to find that 60% of adults never completely heal from celiac disease despite following a gluten-free diet. It has been found that only 8% of adult patients with celiac disease eating a gluten-free diet reached “normalization,” where their intestines completely recovered.
However, there is new research that may help people with celiac for good! Researcher Alessio Fasano, M.D. has been on the leading edge of recent autoimmune and celiac disease exploration. In 2011, he published a paper titled “Leaky Gut and Autoimmune Diseases” which presented a new theory that suggests prevention and reversal of autoimmune disease is possible.
We all know that sugar is bad, but we mistakenly believe complex carbohydrates are healthy and we need to eat them in abundance. BUT what if I told you that “Complex carbohydrates” and “Whole Grains” are just glucose molecules hooked together in a long chain; the digestive track breaks it down into glucose…also known as sugar. So a “complex carb” diet and a “sugary” diet are pretty much the same thing.
The initial indicator of almost every illness is inflammation of our cells. Therefore it is critical for us to get a better understanding of what causes inflammation and choose the right foods prevent it from happening!

“HEALTHIFIED” SHRIMP SCAMPI BAKE
1/2 cup butter or macadamia nut oil

Prepare the Miracle Noodles or Kelp Noodles.
