Living in France in 2015, I quickly learned the French love their sandwiches. Simplistic as they are, baguette sandwiches and paninis are available all over the country, and made with fresh pure ingredients. Most popular is the jambon beurre, or ham sandwich with butter. It’s a national institution, that sandwich! So what does that have to do with this Gluten Free Bahn Mi Sandwich? Well, a lot, actually. Continue Reading
There’s something exciting going on with one of my favorite partner companies and I could hardly wait to get in on this! I think you’re going to want to hear about it, too, so I want to share My Amazing 14 Days of Detox with you.
I’ve told you about Aloha products before when I shared my 5 Tips to Help Gluten-Free Guests Feel at Home for the Holidays, when I told you about Keeping Fit & Fabulous During the Holidays without Sacrifice (plus an amazing recipe!!) and when I detailed my favorite way to keep my skin bright and youthful in 6 Incredible Ingredients that Give You Younger Looking Skin.

Wheatgrass is a controversial ingredient in the gluten-free world and it’s no wonder! The word “wheat” glares at you, yet there are numerous wheatgrass-containing health food products labeled gluten-free.

Before we scrap it all and skip this superfood ingredient, let’s answer the question “Is Wheatgrass Gluten-Free?” with science. Continue Reading
In the interest of transparency and full disclosure, please know that I received complimentary services from Massage Heights for the purposes of this review, however, I am a MH member and use therapeutic massage as a regular means to maintain my overall health. I am sharing this post in hopes it will bring benefit to some of you.
If you follow along here, you know natural, preventative measures for wellness are top priority to me. Restoring my health solely with food and a holistic regimen nearly a decade ago, I continue with this approach to maintain The Machine (my body) at peak performance.
My background in neuroscience and natural products research means only fact-based approaches make it into my regular routine. One area I pay special attention to is something you can’t even see – my lymphatic system.
The Lymphatic System plays a Direct Role in Immune Health
It is a complex network of organs, nodes and numerous ducts and vessels in the body and shares a close relationship with the immune system. Lymph health is important to anyone, but especially those of us with immune disease (like celiac disease, diabetes, thyroid disease, etc.).
In a nutshell, this intricate system produces and transports a clear fluid (lymph) throughout the body, bathing our cells, providing them with nutrients and oxygen and also picking up unwanted substances like fats, bacteria, and other negative materials to filter them out of the body.

Is it blazing hot where you are? Temps here in Atlanta have been hovering in the 90s and flirting with 100F for weeks. I could not be more over it. Trying to keep cool is nearly impossible.
