Paleo Scrumptious Snacking Cooking Class!

paleodiet
I will be teaching a Paleo cooking class with wellness expert Erin Toole Budd at Ambrosia Natural Foods in Vaughan, Ontario (just north of Toronto) on June 15, 2016. I have been shopping at and loving Ambrosia since its first flagship store opened many years ago! Back then, it was very hard to find foods that were suitable for celiac disease and they were among the first stores to carry such foods. I’d walk in and feel as though I’d hit the jackpot!

How to help your Paleo child

Children_Nutrition
For those who are unfamiliar with the Paleo diet, it is a diet based on the types of foods presumed to have been eaten by early humans (often referred to as the Caveman or Primal diet), consisting mostly of protein (meat, fish, nuts and seeds), complex carbohydrates (vegetables, and fruit) and healthy fats. It excludes foods known to cause inflammation in the bowel (among other problems), such as legumes, simple carbohydrates (refined sugar, dairy and grain products) and processed food. The diet was recommended to me by my gastroenterologist to treat my diagnosed irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and to “better” treat celiac disease.

These tips are also applicable to children following other special diets.

Celiac Disease Little Known Facts & Our Colon


“The food you eat can be either the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.” – Dr. Ann Wigmore

March is colorectal cancer awareness month. Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer in Canada, next to lung and breast cancer. I decided to do some research on different websites that offer useful facts and information about celiac disease and other gastroenterological diseases. In my search, I came across the Canadian Digestive Health Foundation or CDHF (the Foundation of the Canadian Association of Gastroenterology) and was pleasantly surprised.
