Did you know one in four women experiences some form of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)? One in four!

Acid reflux, resulting in heartburn, is incredibly common these days. In fact, as many as 60 million Americans experience heartburn at least once a month.

These are a great option for a quick snack, a little pick-me-up pre- or post-workout, or to cure a sweet tooth.
While autoimmune diseases are common these days, they’re also commonly misunderstood. Their symptoms can sometimes masquerade as other conditions, making them harder to diagnose.

Because the truth is, autoimmunity can be managed and even reversed (yes!) by using nutrition and other lifestyle changes.
Just because you are following an autoimmune nutrition protocol (AIP), doesn’t mean you need to skimp on flavor when it comes to one of the easiest weeknight meals…tacos!

Feelin saucy?? This is a good one folks. And super easy. A little spicy, a little smoky, a little acid…its a party for your mouth and goes well on all the meats.
Have you heard of lectins? These are anti-nutrients found in many foods. They essentially latch onto carbohydrates and can attach to the gut lining. This can contribute to a leaky gut.
