Have you tried kombucha? It sounds mysterious and difficult, but it is actually quite easy to make at home. Check out this book review for more information. #fermentedfoods   #fermentation

Are you looking for a refreshing dessert on a hot summer night? Look no further! This strawberry rhubarb sorbet is also #autoimmunepaleo  friendly and #lowfodmap  and has no added sugar.

Nothing is more refreshing on a hot day than an icy sweet-tart sorbet! Combined with a few dates, this strawberry rhubarb sorbet is an all-natural, no sugar added, dairy free, gluten free, grain free treat that is compliant with virtually all healing diets, including the paleo autoimmune protocol (AIP), low-FODMAP, and the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD).

If you've been eating paleo for a while and feel like your health improvements have stalled, you might want to try a 30 day paleo reset. Here is some advice on how to get started!
Last week I wrote about why I was starting a 30 day paleo reset now, after almost 18 months of eating some variation of a grain-free and nutrient dense diet. I'm one week into the reset and want to share my experiences so far and provide some advice for how to get started with your own personalized reset plan.

We all know grass fed beef is best, but it is so expensive. Enter cube steak, a budget-friendly cut that is also easy to prepare. Here is a great paleo-friendly recipe inspired by Cuban home cooking. 
This is a paleo-friendly and very budget-friendly dish that uses one of the cheapest cuts of meat out there.

Lamb is an incredibly nutrient dense food and one you can feel good about eating because most of it is grass fed and finished. Here is an easy recipe for grilled lamb chops that is also AIP-friendly!

Doing a paleo reset or other dietary challenge is about much more than just food. Check out this post about my emotional struggles as I continue my own 30 day reset. #paleo   #paleodiet   #paleochallenge  
I'm two weeks into my 30 day paleo reset and am realizing that this whole experiment is about a lot more than whether I eat dairy, grains, and legumes or not. Food is the medium, it is the material we have to work with, but the real challenge of a reset program like this one lies in the habits, emotions, and thoughts that surround food and health and body issues. And for me - like for most people - those issues are complex.

Eating paleo for Crohn's disease and general health
Introduction
My long and complicated medical history includes a diagnosis of Crohn’s Disease in 1995, a total of seven surgeries resulting in borderline short bowel syndrome, severe iron-deficiency anemia, food allergies, and more. Doctors told me I was fortunate to be doing as well as I was, even though by all objective measures I was still quite sick. Finally, in January 2013, I decided that I wasn’t willing to settle for that anymore and began investigating natural diet-based approaches to healing my gut. I started out on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) and now follow a paleo eating plan that includes lots of grass-fed meats and organic veggies and fruits, and eliminates all grains, legumes, and dairy. My healing journey is not complete, but a colonoscopy just two months after eliminating grains showed only minimal disease evidence “consistent with resolving Crohn’s disease” and just four months later my hemoglobin and hematocrit levels tested in the normal range for the first time in my entire adult life! It is my hope that by sharing my story with the world I can help others facing similar challenges.
