My Green Brain is always researching and reading any new articles and cook books to deal with my food allergies. It all began 11 years ago after my mother passed away. I kept telling the doctors and the nutritionist at All Ways Healthy that “I am not digesting my life.” That statement was true. I have always been allergic to milk , but I discover I could no longer digest gluten, corn, soy. I also am very careful not to eat foods with a high sugar content.
You might be asking yourself, “What does Sheila eat?”. I do not find it difficult to find wonderfully fresh food to eat! This issue is the mystery foods! I have became a consummate label when our eldest son, Joshua was diagnosed with T1D (Type 1 Diabetes 27 years ago, when he was 15 years old). I knew that fructose was made from corn. However, I had to learn, that hard way, that xantham gum is created by fermenting corn sugar with a bacteria. Corn and sugar were the evil culprits for belly boating and brain fogging.
If you or anyone you know suffers from food allergies, which cause belly boating and brain fogging, there is simple reason… the Brain Gut connection!
Over the weekend, I was searching the Internet and found a “Root’n for No Gluten, Dairy, Soy, Egg, Corn and Sugar” website created by Brittany Angell. Brittany’s Real Sustenance website states… “Brittany has created over 600 diverse and delicious recipes that are primarily gluten & dairy free. However, she strives to serve the entire allergy free consumer by developing creative, unique and hard to find recipes that are also soy, egg, corn, sugar and grain free.”
I love Brittany’s name selection for her website. Real Sustenance is perfect; because Brittany offers you Genuine Nutrition! No fake chemicals or additives that cause allergies and unhealthy reactions.
When I discovered the Real Sustenance website, I felt like I had found a winning lotto ticket or a buried treasure chest filled with new recipes that are simply and look yummy. My Orange Brain is excited and eager about using my new treasure trove!
My Blue Brain couldn’t wait to share the Real Sustenance website information with my friend Ellen, because her youngest son deals with the challenges of Type 1 diabetes and Celiac Disease. Studies have shown that a Gluten Free diet also helps adults and children who suffer from multiple sclerosis (MS) and autism.
I know that it is not easy living with food allergies. You MUST use your disciplined Yellow Brain attributes to purchase, plan, and prepare your meals and snacks. However, the health and feeling grand benefits are far more significant than the extra time and effort.
I am most grateful there is a more informed awareness about food allergies, more food and resource options, and that I feel so much healthier than I did 11 years ago!
PLEASE, SHARE Brittany Angell’s Real Sustenance website with your family members, friends, co-workers, and neighbors. I am confident they will be grateful for the helpful information and your thoughtfulness!
