Baby Steps to Better Health Through Real Food: What To Expect

I know many of you are beyond ready to get started. We will give everyone through the weekend to get their list of symptoms written up. Patience grasshopper.

Monday morning, we will begin our first Baby Step!

Each week will feature a new Baby Step, some food-related and some that remove other toxins from your lives.

Here is our posting schedule –

Monday: Baby Step for the week with benefits, instructions, facts, other relevant information, and further reading for those of you who like to research the heck out of everything

Tuesday: Featured Baby Step recipe

  • I am so happy to find your blog! About a month ago, I discovered that I am gluten intolerant (have not done the Celiac test yet because I just wanted to feel good and eliminate gluten) and found out I have 36 additional sensitivities. Things like garlic and black pepper aren’t allowed so I am really struggling with what to eat. Plus people act like I am crazy because of all of these sensitivities so I am happy to find a blog where someone can relate! I have taken steps to heal my gut (digestive enzymes, slippery elm, probiotic, and trying my best to eliminate problem foods), but have failed miserably at rotating foods every 4 days. A lot of my allergens are vegetables so I don’t have many veggies to rotate! I feel like I will never get better so I look forward to following your blog. Thanks!

    • Carrie, I am so happy to have you here! I completely understand where you are coming from. My daughter is only recently able to have pepper and garlic (or any spices for that matter), and it’s very hard to learn to cook without them. If there are any recipe modifications you need, contact me through my contact page or send me a message on Facebook and I will be happy to help. Best of luck!

  • I signed up for the email and confirmed the subscription. There was a file to download (vcf) in the subscription confirmed email. Was that the Monday post? My computer said it was only partially downloaded and I could not get it to work.

    • Monica, thanks for joining us! 🙂 There shouldn’t be any files to download. Once you click the ‘confirm’ button, it will immediately take you to a page that shows what blogs you are following by e-mail. After that, you’ll receive e-mails each time a new post goes up. Monday’s post didn’t actually go up until the wee hours of the morning because my daughter had some tummy troubles, but it’s up now!

        • Sorry for any confusion Monica! The newsletter comes out every Saturday morning (starting tomorrow) and has all of the week’s posts that relate to our current Baby Step. If you would like the information in real time also, you can sign up for e-mail updates and get all of our posts! The e-mail sign up form is just below my bio on the right side of the screen and also in the footer at the bottom of the page.

  • Hello, I just subscribed so do I need to wait till Saturday? Several months back we decided to go Gluten Free. We are following the primal/Paleo and my hubby no longer needs insulin. We tried Vegan for 2 1/2 yrs. my trig were very high. I need to get that checked again.
