When you eat, you have many choices. Do you opt for flavor? Do you opt for convenience? Or do you take a ‘food as medicine’ approach?
The third choice is definitely the wisest. However, sometimes it can be difficult to find flavorful and convenient recipes that also help you heal… especially when many of us are following dietary guidelines, like the Leaky Gut diet, or the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD).
What Foods Fit Within a Leaky Gut Diet?
There are many Leaky Gut Diet-friendly foods that can satisfy your cravings, without leaving you feeling deprived. You can dine on vegetables, fruits, coconut products, grass-fed meats, seafood, poultry, bone broth, healthy fats, herbs, and many more choices.
While a wide variety of foods are permitted, there are some limitations on a Leaky Gut diet. You’ll want to avoid nuts, seeds, beans/legumes, grains, dried fruits, dairy, processed foods, alcohol, chocolate, eggs, and nightshades, at least until you know how you react to them. Keep in mind this is not an all-encompassing list. To learn more about what to eat and not eat on a Leaky Gut diet, check out this free webinar on Solving Leaky Gut. [click to continue…]
