01 Jul Eating to feel your best
July 1, 2018
We are all unique. Unique fingerprints, unique DNA, unique metabolism, and a unique gut microbiome. So let’s eat in a way that is just as unique! Eats Treats and Parsnips (ETP) is here to make it easy to find what and how to eat to feel your best.
We are all made of the same basic building blocks, but due to genetic and environmental factors, our systems respond to foods differently. There are numerous foods that are known to be troublesome for people such as dairy, gluten containing foods like wheat, onions, pineapple, and high sugar foods like potatoes and watermelon. These foods can cause a range of reactions in some people, while others are able to digest them without a problem. The reactions can be extremely serious like an autoimmune response or elevated blood sugar levels. Other reactions like constipation, diarrhea, and fatigue impede day-to-day activities. While reactions like brain fog, mood swings, and just overall feeling lousy make it hard to enjoy life to the fullest. We understand the science behind some of these reactions, such as when a person with diabetes consumes foods high on the glycemic index. Other reactions, like those caused by high FODMAP foods, are less well understood and are active areas of scientific study.
