In the fast-paced world of the 21st century, health and wellness have never been more crucial. As we step into the year 2024, the importance of nurturing our bodies and minds has taken center stage. The global pandemic that changed the way we live has underscored the significance of being healthy at home. In this article, we will explore why making health a priority at home just makes sense in 2024 and how Grain Free Mama’s, Food Breakthrough: Adjust Your Diet Transform Your Life book and cookbook,” and the A Place At The Table online community are instrumental to help you in achieving this goal.
The Significance of Health at Home
Over the years, our understanding of health has evolved. We have moved beyond mere physical well-being to embrace a more holistic approach that includes mental and emotional health. In 2024, being healthy at home means taking care of all aspects of our well-being. Food is part of that equation and so important for overall health and wellbeing.
The COVID-19 pandemic has reshaped our lives and priorities. Staying at home became more of a norm, which made it essential to create a healthy living environment that supports our physical and mental health. The shutdown of restaurants and subsequent supply chain shortages were a bit of a shock at first. Cooking at home??? This was a new concept for many who lived in urban and suburban settings.
This led to an upsurge in interest in recipes and cooking in general. Cooking shows gained many loyal fans. But now the pandemic is over. Many have gravitated back to old habits. The cost both to finances and health is felt keenly. So now is a great time to rethink our ways of operation with regards to a healthy lifestyle.
My journey as a Natural Food Scientist has illuminated the power of natural foods in promoting health began in 2004 when my 6-year-old daughter developed digestive problems and food allergies. Her problems were with traditionally made baked goods. (Traditionally made baked goods are NOT good for people.) We didn’t want to have to choose between good food and good health, so I put my science education to work to create the solution. This led me to the creation of innovative and total clean baking mixes, which then led to the founding of Grain Free Mama’s.
Grain Free Mama’s – A Catalyst for Healthy Living
Grain Free Mama’s is at the forefront of promoting health through natural foods. Our mission is to help to slow down and eliminate the incidence of autoimmune disease that is caused by unhealthy diets. We’ve eaten ourselves into poor health. At Grain Free Mama’s, we are fully committed to helping people turn that around by providing the ‘cleanest, moist and delicious, baking mixes (and in the future, baked goods) on the planet’.
‘How?” you may be asking. Our innovative approach at Grain Free Mama’s includes working with nature in creating delicious and nutritious baking mixes that are free from edible grass ingredients (flours of gluten and non-gluten grains, corn, rice, and cane sugar), dairy, soy, botanical nuts, and artificial additives. The ingredients we use are naturally low inflammatory.
Our vision for Grain Free Mama’s goes beyond products to educational resources and community. To make healthier eating choices you must have a more knowledgeable understanding of foods and how they affect health. This approach encompasses a lifestyle centered around clean and wholesome eating.
Food Breakthrough – Transforming Lives Through Nutrition
Our book and cookbook, “Food Breakthrough: Adjust Your Diet Transform Your Life,” are two cornerstones in the journey to health at home. With a deep-rooted passion for nourishing the body and soul through wholesome food, this book is an indispensable guide for those seeking a healthier, more vibrant way of life. It presents a revolutionary approach to eating.
In ‘Food Breakthrough,’ I’ve fused scientific rigor with culinary creativity to demystify the intricacies of diet. This empowers readers to make enlightened choices for peak well-being. This quest for dietary transformation doesn’t end there. With the ‘Food Breakthrough Cookbook,’ you are taken on an enticing journey into EGIF (edible grass ingredient free) cooking. That means no gluten, no grains, and no sugar cane.
From debunking popular myths to offering hands-on recipes and practical advice, the manifold benefits of adopting a grain-free lifestyle are revealed. My background in Biology, with a concentration in Microbiology and Botany, have lent an innovative and eye-opening view to nutritional guidance. This knowledge was developed in my now 20-year journey to optimal health with my children and myself, as well as many others. It was never my intention to create gluten free products, as I knew within the first two years that they were definitely not the answer to optimal health.
A Place At The Table – Fostering Community and Knowledge
Community support is crucial for maintaining health goals. Going it alone is very hard when making changes to foods we eat. A Place At The Table builds a supportive network of individuals committed to wellness. The benefits of the community are many. (1) A place where you can be accountable, which helps with ‘stick-to-itiveness’. (2) Educational resources at the tip of your fingers. (3) Discussions and webinars to challenge and present new information to you. (4) A sense of belonging. ‘You are not on this journey alone.’ (5) The opportunity to be encouraging to others and to be encouraged by others.
