Apple Pie Granola

Apple Pie Granola

There is nothing more American than Apple Pie, and getting through 4th of July on the MRT/Leap Food Sensitivity Elimination Diet can leave you feeling less than celebratory at the moment.  Fear not, my daughter is back in the kitchen and whipped up an apple pie inspired granola using only MRT tested ingredients, so you can have that cinnamon, sweet crunch in your yogurt or fruit bowl.

Chocolate Haystack Bars

I couldn't be the only person in the history of MRT/Leap elimination diets to need something snack-y, so I got to work making a series of recipes using only the 170 MRT/Leap Tested Foods.  My current mood called for something that tasted like chocolate and Chocolate Haystack Bars were born!

Page to Patient: The Mindful Diet

The Wheel of Health is a tool used by many integrative practices and helps guide an individual’s decisions about which areas need the most immediate attention.  We are often so busy with life that it becomes difficult to stop and conduct a personal inventory periodically so that we can recalibrate.  Doing the same things over and over often yields the same unsatisfying results.  Resets are both natural and necessary – in nature and in life – and this book is very helpful in creating focus.

Pantry Spring Cleaning
