Just a reminder to those of you who have been following Karen & Ed on their journey to better health. From Whole 30 to Plant Paradox–and now on to Dr. Joel Fuhrman’s Eat to Live program, we keep tweaking what we’re learning from the various people we’ve come in contact with, and the books those… Continue reading WeGutHealthy.com is up and running.
No, we’re not leaving the state. LOL. We’re moving to a new web ADDRESS. We will now be located at http://www.weguthealthy.com The site is still under construction, so I will be tweaking it regularly to make it look nice and be much more functional. So much to learn! LOL. In case you haven’t had… Continue reading WE ARE MOVING! AND TODAY’S THE DAY!
While we are experimenting with new recipes from Dr. Steven Gundry’s book (The Plant Paradox), I oftentimes refer back to Melissa and Dallas Hartwig’s book, The Whole 30 because it has a lot of great recipes that can be made Plant Paradox compliant, if it isn’t already. One recipe we like in particular is their… Continue reading Whole 30 Salmon Cakes (Plant Paradox compliant)
Before starting the Plant Paradox program, I loved cheese. In fact, I’d say I loved everything dairy. Several years ago, the first specific eating program my daughter introduced me to was the Ketogenic Diet. At first, I thought she was going to kill herself (and me) by eating so much fat. (The program is all… Continue reading From Keto to Plant Paradox–what a journey!
Many years ago, I was introduced to Indian food. I loved it! Having grown up eating some kind of meat, fish or chicken with every meal, it was hard to imagine a meal with NO animal meat–that is, until I learned about Indian cuisine. Wow! I never knew vegetables could taste so good. My mother… Continue reading Cauliflower and (Sweet) Potatoes
Several years ago, my daughter and I used to go to a nice little restaurant in Providence (which isn’t there any more, unfortunately), called Grappa’s. They had the best thin crust pizza I’d ever eaten. (I think it was even better than Al Forno’s which most people know very well.) On the menu was an… Continue reading Quick & Tasty Arugula Salad
Whole 30 and Plant Paradox compliant! Although I have been resisting the idea of being a vegetarian or vegan, Ed is ready to give it a try. (Easy for him to say–he’s not doing the cooking!) Maybe it’s because I was brought up in a meat & potato kind of household, and so I can’t… Continue reading Cream of Mushroom soup
While my last blog showed a wonderfully refreshing salad with fruit as an idea for breakfast, I have to admit–having greens morning, noon, and night can get old pretty quickly. For a change, I told Ed I’d experiment with Dr. Gundry’s muffins. I made the first batch of muffins, for the most part, according to… Continue reading What’s for Breakfast, Part 2
When we first started with the Plant Paradox program, green smoothies were recommended and they were easy to prepare. The beauty of making them is that you can combine whatever ingredients you have on hand, and there is so much variety to the various greens available. (We did add a little fruit and compliant sweetener… Continue reading What’s for Breakfast?
In a previous blog, I mentioned the health benefits Ed realized from being on the Whole 30 program. A side effect of that was that he also lost weight. Fifteen pounds of it. The funniest part of that is that he really didn’t NEED to lose weight. (I can hear all you women out there… Continue reading Beyond Whole 30
