We thought it important to start Nutty Kitchen because
I used to suffer from high spikes of energy levels, which would make me crash to the point that I began to feel tingly, nauseous and faint. I could never get caught without an energy bar or apple or something in my bag. Henry suffered from serious lactose intolerance his whole life. We have always been very healthy eaters and exercised regularly. We have always consumed plenty of water, gotten ample sleep and have been in excellent physical health. We have never had elevated blood sugar levels or other problems during physicals, so it was hard for us to understand why we kept having such problems.
We began to research holistic, alternative medicine, and other healthy living sites. We discovered that we had been doing everything right with the exception of eating grains and legumes. We learned more about why they are so unhealthy for humans and discovered the problem. GLUTEN.
Eventually we found Mark’s Daily Apple, and Mark’s eye opening book the Primal Blueprint! Everyone needs to read this book at least once.
Mark Sisson changed our lives by sharing his way of life. Thank you, Mark!
We went Primal and began to eat a Paleolithic Diet!
We got rid of all of our grains, legumes, sugar and flour and substituted, coconut oil, blanched almond, plantain, manioc flour, almond and flaxseed meal in the preparation of all our meals.
Since we have cut grains and legumes from our nutrition, both of us have re-calibrated; Henry is no longer lactose intolerant and my energy spikes have disappeared.
So with that said, Nutty Kitchen was born to help spread health and happiness with healthy, gluten-free and grain-free cooking.
In our Nutty Kitchen you’ll find global recipes, Viennese baked goods, European delectables and some of our family’s secret recipes.
Enjoy the recipes and food wisdom, they are all created with love from us.
