    Hangry without a snack? It’s a recipe for cheating on any diet. Doubly true if there’s “temptation food” laid out for you. More than once, my ambitious intention to practice intermittent fasting at a party or on a road trip has been thwarted by…well, hunger.

  • Kefir, Kombucha, Kraut, & Kvass

    June 21, 2019lectinfreemama

    There’s been a rapid decline in living food in recent decades. The industrial food machine has essentially eliminated fermented foods like kefir and sauerkraut from our diets.

    If you’ve never heard of mold illness or you thought it was simply “mold allergies,” you’re not alone. Environmentally-acquired illnesses are possibly the most underrated and under-diagnosed illnesses of our time. People usually don’t know it’s a thing until they get it or someone they love gets it.

    Conventional practitioners seem to have a unified message regarding supplements on the Plant Paradox diet (or any diet). The message being: they’re a waste of money.
