Dining out. One of the small pleasures in life that we tend to take a little too much advantage of. Having food sensitivities typically makes dining out a little less pleasurable, though, and a lot more anxiety-riddled. Fortunately, that anxiety can be lessened when you learn these tips and are adequately prepared. 1. Do a little pre-game research.
Before I go any where new I always pull up the menu online. Thankfully, we live in a world where you have easy access to probabl
Those of us with food sensitivities know that if we keep the offending foods in our diets then we struggle to get better or even just to feel normal. The problem is, though, that eliminating multiple food sensitivities from our diets is TOUGH WORK! There are periods where I thrive and I can go months without taking one single bite of a food that causes the influx of inflammation that I get from my food sensitivities.

It was always the top of my request for my birthday dinner growing up (with a side of bread and brownies for dessert – I had a serious love for the carbs!)

My favorite restaurant in San Antonio called Josephine Street & if you ever find yourself in San Antonio in need of some delicious steaks (& whiskey), this is your place! Their food is seriously unreal, but since I cannot spend all of my money dining out I had to learn to make my own versions of their best dishes in order to satisfy my cravings.. and since appetizers are always a good place to start, I decided to give their beef tenderloin Anticuchos a try. Now, what the hec
I. Love. Burgers. I think this is pretty unanimous among most Americans. Everyone has their own personal anecdote when they can imagine a certain food and how it made them feel during a certain point in time. When I was in elementary school I was addicted to a little burger joint in my hometown called "Dippity's".

Do you suffer with regular colds? Sore throats, hoarseness, coughing? What about seasonal allergies or even asthma? What about autoimmune disease like Hashimoto's or Arthritis? All of these issues can be attributed to hidden food sensitivities. We should all be familiar at this point about food allergies and their effects that they can have on the human body – anaphylaxis – and the constant need for an epi-pen, just in case! What about hidden food sensitivities? What do these
