25 Apr 3 Gut Destroying Pantry Items and what to use instead

I get it, overload of information haha. As you can see I am just a little passionate about eliminating gut destroying foods. By simply swapping some of your pantry items over to more healthful ones can be super beneficial for your overall health in the long run. It is almost to simple and that is part of the reason we don’t do it… we just think we will get round to it eventually, can you relate to this? Now is your chance and hopefully this video has sparked a fire inside of you to grab the bin and start ditching all the crap that is sneakily destroying your health and could be the leading cause to some weird and unexplained symptoms.   Over the years testing and experimenting with different less “main stream” food items has been a passion and I have found that simply swapping items has made a huge difference to my health, my friends health and also my family.

02 Jan Don’t eat the forbidden fruit…

I don’t know about you but when you can’t eat something as a treat or as a “cheat” meal because of allergies and / or food intolerance it can really bring you down + make you want it more! Especially throughout the holiday season. You know what the consequences are if you eat that! So why do you keep slipping up? Saying no makes you want the forbidden fruit even more.

14 Aug Ghee (how too + why you want too…)

Ghee is also called clarified butter. It is basically butter that has had all the milk solids cooked out, and therefor is pure butter fat / oil and lasts a very long time without spoiling. In this video I will share with you the steps and process to preparing your very own ghee at home. Why you should consider using ghee with your cooking. It is amazing for cooking because it has a really high smoke point, which means it doesn't oxidize and break into free radicles in your body like other oils that are cooked at really high temperatures (such as vegetable oil or olive oil). Is also not an issue for dairy intolerant people because you cook off all the milk and dairy solids so the final result is free from any dairy. Contains butyric acid which protects your immune system by feeding the beneficial bacteria in your gut and helping them to protect you at a gut level. Stimulates your digestive acids and juices so it kick-starts your digestion. It also contains MCFA (medium chain fatty acids) which is also in coconut oil, this type of fat is not stored in the body it is used for energy. Rich in vitamins in grass fed butter...
