No Gluten, Dairy or Soy Snacks
Many of my new clients have lots of food sensitivities when they come to me. One of the first steps to healing your gut is to remove all offending foods AND get to the bottom of infections, parasites or bad bacteria that are causing your digestive problems.
I like to teach people what they CAN eat to feel good and have more energy. These are some great ideas for safe snacks if you are gluten-free, dairy-free and soy-free.
Eating healthy snacks throughout the day can help you lose weight by keeping your blood sugar more balanced, maintaining your energy level and keeping you from getting too hungry.
