My archives might be a little outdated especially the older blogs. My links above are all new and current.

I have only positive things to say about Permission to Mother, an autobiographical account of a thoughtful mother and clinician who courageously writes from her heart, soul, brain, and personal experience; who is open to change in her views and opinions and is not guided by the safety of rules of any group or the status quo; she is guided by love and openness to the experiences life brings her and her family. Her process benefits her and those around her and those who read her words. And to add to that, the writing style and story telling ability here make it a very enjoyable read speckled with both the humor and seriousness of life. ~Laura Keegan RN FNP, author of Breastfeeding with Comfort and Joy

Jack Spratt's Food Sensitivities

Jack Spratt could eat no fat
His wife could eat no lean
And so betwixt the two of them
They licked the platter clean

Now John has been intrigued by my detox. He FINALLY let us draw his blood for his food sensitivity test. John and I are both lucky that we don't have diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol despite how easily we put on pounds. Mostly we have nuisance problems (cough and sinus, acne), but not the chronic risk factors for heart disease. I am motivated to shop and prepare foods for John compatible with his profile. He has agreed to do this for a week starting yesterday. I will shop. I will prepare the food. He doesn't even have to look at his results! All he has to do is eat what I serve him. I'll bring him compatible food when he's hungry. For the most part I have been doing this meal plan all along, but now I have his results to do it specifically for him. I am just hoping he won't eat out and sneak in junk for JUST one week.

I was so lost when I got my first results back. I didn't know where to go to find the food I could eat. I had to shop for it and learn how to prepare it. I paved the path. I know where to shop and our house is stocked. I KNOW he will feel so much better.

Something really interesting to me... I removed a few vegetables off the rotation after I got my repeat testing back (~2 months ago). All of those veggies came back clear on John profile probably because he hadn't been served them much in the past 2 1/2 months. Last night we happily feasted on spaghetti sauce (homemade) with spaghetti squash and rice noodles. Does that tell you what we have been eating a lot of? Tonight I am stir frying veggies and sprouts and having brown rice.

Sugar was not as inflammatory to him as to me
He can't have his wheat, but I can have all grains
He can have dairy, but I can't :(
(he used the Parmesan, I had whole grain noodles and Romano--that's sheep cheese)
We agree, no MSG
so betwixt the two of us
We licked the platter clean!

Karen said... mentioned that you know where to shop now for healthy foods...can you share some places to go? i am looking for a food place that sells pretty much everythign in ONE spot, LOL. Kind of like the PUblix healthy food section but for there such a store around here??? Thanks so much & i think its great that you are so devoted to healthy eating & kudos to John for trying it!

I get much of my organic produce through the co-op, and more produce at Nelson's and the Ft. Pierce farmers market.

I also go to Wholefoods in WPB every few months and Nutrition World in Fort. Pierce. Nutition Smart has similar packaged items as NW and a little produce.

I go to Publix at St. James and SLW. for many things also. I have checked out most Publix/Greenwise and am happy with the two closest to home and office. No advantage for me to drive furthur just for Publix/Greenwise.

Not one place has everything.

I'm stuck on the Romano's from sheep??? It's been interesting following along on your healthy, new way of eating. Maybe it will inspire me to get back to eating more healthy! Maybe. :-)

Allana, You made me double check, Pecorino Romano is sheep's milk. Still, every label, should be checked everytime on a strict elimination diet. I have a large bag in the freeze. The company is Arganito (something like that) There are cow/goat milk imitators.

John lost 11 pounds this week. Although he is not sticking to it as strict as alcat suggests, he has abstained from Chinese (msg), hot dogs, deli meats, snacking on junk foods not compatible with his profile), and wheat. (They would have you go stricter than this). He has verbally grumbled every meal.
