I broke up with gluten.
Hands down, it was one of the most profound shifts of my life. Giving up gluten was my first step in really exploring how food affects me. I spent my life up until then being detached from the sensations I experienced, with no recognition that how I was eating was directly impacting every aspect of my being. Until I started to be able to feel the difference in myself, I wasn’t able to access some pretty deep things I’d not realized I was missing.
What my own ‘break up’ allowed me to access was a deeper understanding of the crucial role food plays in our lives, and a foundation for more learning and self-discovery.
Being without a food that caused me so much discomfort – and to be honest, one I was truly addicted to – opened up a door to find someone I had never expected to find. She was more fun, more fit, more vibrant: truly, the happiest version of myself I’d ever known, and one whom I have discovered has a lot more potential that I’d given her credit for.
Break Up with Gluten is a practical guide to explore how your relationship with food - in this case, gluten specifically - impacts your world. It includes step-by-step guides, a meal planning tool, a shopping list, and personal narrative, all with the hope of empowering you to uncover your happiest, healthiest self. If you’re caught in a cycle of addiction and oppression in your current food relationship, Break Up With Gluten will help you get gluten-single the smart way.

Juicing Isn't Actually Good for You and Your Diet Is Probably Dumb

Pexels Sorry. Full disclosure: I don't really get juicing. Don't get me wrong, I've slurped down some delicious veggie and ginger concoctions and done my fair share of shots of lemon and turmeric. But spending 10 bucks on—or trying to replace breakfast with—a beverage that essentially amounts to cold, sugary soup has just never sounded appealing. Still, there's no accounting for taste, and I don't begrudge folks who enjoy sipping on cold carrot water. But don't pretend that juicing is good for you. Researchers have tackled the pervasive myths of juice-related health benefits in a study publish

Voilà! France’s Next Culinary Advance

If people could tell at a glance the nutritional content of the food they buy and eat, they could easily improve their diets. Obesity and diet-related health problems of all kinds would fall significantly. Or they would, public-health officials believe, if a perfectly clear and simple food label could be devised. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has recently updated its label to highlight calorie counts and number of servings and to provide a daily value for added sugar. It’s now looking into regulations governing which foods can be promoted as “healthy.” The U.K. since 2013 has had prom

Gluten-Free Diets Are Not Actually Linked to Diabetes

Unsplash A lovely bread bowl that would be off limits to you if you didn't eat gluten. In the pantheon of fad diets, there is perhaps none more hated on than gluten-free. And despite how annoying fad dieters are (if I hear one more person order a salad because they’re ‘gluten-free’ and then ask for croutons…), it’s not unreasonable to want to avoid foods that might possibly be bad for you. But is gluten actually bad for people who don’t have a problem with it? There’s no real evidence that avoiding gluten leads to tangible health benefits, assuming that you don’t have celiac disease or non-cel
