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. I have found it extremely fun to learn how to cook with different item not everyone has heard of, sometimes they take a bit of getting used to but other times they are an easy sub. I have found that...

Gut Health 101 + Why You Should Care

What does the whole gut health thing actually mean? I know it can be confusing because it seems like there is a new superfood or a new diet each week that is the most amazing health hack… then you find out a week or month later that it was all just a load of BS and there was just a bit of hype around it, take kale for example… about a year ago if you mentioned you eat a healthy diet or are interested in your health it was ALLLLLL about the kale. (To be brutally honest, I’m not a big fan of kale unless its cooked and wilted… can’t stand it raw or in salads YUCK!! But I have managed to find a way to consume it and it’s not as often as you might think)   I am not sure if you have noticed but there is a lot of talk and hype around gut health lately and I really hope it doesn’t start to cheapen the importance of gut health or bring out the haters. So I want to share a little about why it’s so important. The thing with gut health that no one really talks about is the fact that...

3 Gut Healing Breakfast Ideas That Will Have You Welcoming Wellness In No Time

Are you sick and tired of waking up in a daze? Longing to figure out how to cram all the advice you are given into your day? I used to try new things everyday and wonder why nothing was working. Finding your groove is so important to welcoming wellness as it is something that needs to be worked at daily. For most people (you included) the beginning of the day before work is the only part you can be in control of. You know when you need to leave for work so you know how much time it takes to woof down breakfast and get out the door quick smart. Some of the most successful people in the world, be it athletes, business tycoons, presidents cultivate success through a sound and ritualistic morning routine. Health guru’s also opt for a routine that paves the way for a healthy day. I know if I start the day out right, both in diet and mindset I know I am in control of my day (not the other way around) so getting in a healthy breakfast or a breakfast that is both anti-inflammatory and gut healing is THE best way to start the day...

SecretWeapon 1
My secret weapon for lifelong gut health.

The one thing you can do today that will benefit your health for life is a no brainer but it truly is my secret weapon to health. You move out of home and you try and do the right thing by getting you 2+5 a day, but let’s face it.. It doesn’t always happen, does it? I always knew veggies were super important but I never really made sure I was getting 5 serves and I sure as hell didn’t eat them throughout the day, dinner was my only way to cram my veggies in. Just like (the old) me, most people only eat their veggies at dinner and this lack of veggies could be the single reason you can rattle off 5 (gut related) symptoms that haunt you on a daily basis. I’m talking about the little minor symptoms like bloating, gas, constipation, headaches, bad skin, anxiety… you might not even recognize these to be a symptom of ill health in the making. Or even symptoms associated with poor gut health. We all try and eat our veggies because they are healthy right? But if you break it down and look at the nitty gritty you will be astonished to learn...
