How can you radically change the foods you eat? Get some new recipes! Delicious, healthy recipes are an important part of my practice. These are resources I provide to my clients, and I wanted to make them available to anyone trying to reduce carbohydrates, increase healthy fats, and find more nutrient-dense foods.
Let's start with online resources, so you can check them out right away. I love the wicked good Paleofied recipe recreations at Primal Palate. They have nutrient-dense versions of some favorite comfort foods. The carrot cake recipe is to die for!
For clients who need recipes specific to GAPS (Gut & Psychology Syndrome), SCD (Specific Carbohydrate Diet, developed for Celiac patients) and the Ketogenic Diet (high fat specific for those with mood and brain imbalances), I recommend Health, Home, and Happiness. There is a great blog with recipes specific to the needs of people with autoimmune and inflammation disorders: Auto-Immune Wellness.
There are also some fantastic cookbooks available! I will provide links to the Lawrence Public Library, where you can check them out for free, but they are also all available on Amazon. One of my mainstays is "Ready or Not!", which is by the authors of the Nom Nom Paleo food blog that I mentioned already. "Nourishing Traditions" is a very important cookbook in my practice, and I am constantly recommending recipes from it.
I also love "The Heal Your Gut Cookbook", which emphasizes the Gut and Psychology Syndrome diet, and has amazing, delicious recipes in it.
So, so many of the recipes from these resources use ingredients you can easily find at the grocery store. Some of the recipes call for more specialized ingredients, which may be more difficult to find. Soon, I will have another post about how to find some of those ingredients. As always, call me at (785) 760-0695 or send me a message at AtmaClinic.com if you are ready for personally-tailored guidance and one-on-one attention.
