A Better Menu: Low Fodmap$0.00
You are not what you eat, you are what you digest and absorb, better. If you are looking at this menu, then you likely know all too well that when digestion is off, everything else feels off too.

A Better Menu: Gluten-Free$0.00
There are many reasons you might have to or choose to avoid gluten. However, the gluten-free (GF) choices you make will make a big difference when it comes to whether your nutrition delivers you the better health results you crave. That’s right, what your diet is free-from is only one part of the equation. Your diet needs to be full of the nutrients your body needs to run better more often. That’s where this menu can help you. When you avoid gluten and make better not perfect gluten-free choices more often as well your body gets the better nutrition it needs for better health. A quick review, gluten is found in “BROW” (barley, rye, oats, wheat) and you can be exposed via cross-contamination with these ingredients too. Remember, your better nutrition applies to all of what goes in and on your body more often, so make sure your supplements and skincare choices are better too.

When it comes to increasing fiber (your goal should be at least 25g fiber daily from a variety of sources), you want to add a little more to more nutrition pit stops instead of having one high fiber one. Also, increase your water intake (good idea to do your Better Water Evaluation now too!). Choose menu items more often, follow whole days or follow the whole week – you choose what’s better for you to help you make better not perfect fiber choices more often. Taking a fiber supplement? Let’s talk! Even better, why not send me your Better Supplement Evaluation so I can evaluate your total nutrition to see what is better and where you could act better not perfect more often.
