About a year ago I was having stomach pains and constant bloating, especially right after breakfast. I had already cut out gluten and dairy and at that time and thought I was eating very healthy. I decided I needed to dig deeper. I came across a food sensitivity test from KBMO Diagnostics. After performing the test, I found out that I had a very strong inflammation response to eggs (what an "aha" moment that was). I was constantly eating eggs thinking that I was doing good by my body. Therefore, it is so important to eat what is specifically right for you. One person's food could be another person's poison.
Shortly after eliminating them from my diet I began to feel better. My digestion was back on track and I had more energy. Finding out what food caused inflammation in my body was a pivotal point in healing my body. I became certified to perform this test for my clients because I knew it would help heal them too.
Since I couldn't eat eggs anymore I started to play around with tons of recipes and foods to figure out what would fuel me in the morning. This breakfast took about 5 attempts to get the consistency right but I think you will love it. This recipe is grain-free, gluten free, and dairy dree yet full of flavor. It also provides anti-oxidants, fiber, and nutrients to keep me full for hours and consistent energy throughout the day.
