Food Diary Creator (with Laura Mulkerne)

how to heal your gut by tracking your diet interview with laura mulkerne
The only way I knew how to handle it at that point was to sleep the feelings away so my husband kept having to go out to dinner by himself.

What goes into your mouth usually matters quite a bit more than what comes out.  Food allergies, celiac, IBS, cancer, Alzheimer's, depression; things that impact us physically, mentally, and emotionally all seem to be on the rise.  And yet do a quick google search and you can find someone that has fought every one of these things with changes to their diet.  With stakes like these, and general energy and happiness levels in play for all of us, it’s a wonder that more of us don’t track our diet and lifestyle.  What sorts of inputs are we giving our bodies, and how does changing those inputs change our bodies output?  Today’s guest has struggled with Celiac Disease and IBS, but has been living pain and symptom free for a while now. Laura will share her story, tips, and techniques with us, and go over the wonderful food and lifestyle diary she made in the process.

It makes you sit down and be mindful about what is happening with your body day to day.
I love to cook and I love to bake and that really helps you keep on track with a good diet.
