    Hey Kasey! This is a totally random question but since you avoid dairy, sugar and artificial sweeteners, what is your go-to coffee beverage at Starbucks?

      Hi Heather! I’m not a big starbucks lady, but when I go I usually get an americano and just a little bit of steamed almond milk on top. I try to use unsweetened vanilla almond milk when I can 😉

        Hi Kasey,
        Thank you for your story and eating guide! I will definitely try some of your recipes. I was wondering about your snacks – bars and chips. Wouldn’t they be considered processed food?

          Hi Janis! I always look at the ingredients. If they are whole foods, I’m ok with it. Everyone is different – do what works for you!

    What advice would you give to someone who loves cheese and alcohol? When you do drink alcohol, what do you drink? Are their any good alternatives to coffee creamers I should be aware of?? TIA

      Hi girl! Cheese is a hard one – I found other things I could enjoy like avocado instead of cheese. As far as alcohol, I try to limit certain days of the week I will drink and not more than two drinks. I like vodka soda splash of cran, skinny marg or a glass of wine. When it comes to alcohol, it’s all about moderation. I froth almond milk for my coffee and love it. If you want to use a creamer – for instance coconut – i’d make sure it has little to no sugar. Hope this helps, Stephanie! xo

      Getting rid of sugar and processed foods is the biggie as well as the intermittent fasting. If dairy doesn’t bother you you might consider a Keto diet. I had huge success with that – lost weight, and got rid of foggy brain, gastrointestinal bloat/gas and depression. Be well!

      Hi Liza – they are susceptible for contamination so you have to be careful.

    Love this! I know you said you often skip dairy/cheese, but I’ve noticed when you do include cheese it is often Feta, is that right? I’m just curious if there is a reason for that, or if it is a better choice for a particular reason. Also, how do you feel about stevia as a sweetener option? I love my coffee and I’m trying to cut artificial sweeteners, but taking it black is a hard one for me!

      So glad to hear Emily! Like I mentioned in the post I eat this was about 80% off the time. Cheese is one of my weaknesses 😉 Feta is one of my faves! I steer clear from artificial sweeteners. If it’s a natural stevia, that would be a better option!!

    Hello,

    I am just curious to why avoid lentils and beans as usually I was told they have great protein ?

    Thank you for all your sharing and advice and taking the time to reply to everyone. You are truly the sweetest most inspiring mama out here you are appreciated!!!

      Hi Mady! I don’t typically eat legumes because they have phytic acid, which binds to nutrients in the food, preventing you from absorbing them. They also are hard on the stomach and can cause digestive problems.
      Happy to share! xo

    Thanks for sharing! Why avoid beans / lentils? What is your thoughts on tofu?

      Of course, Stacy! I don’t typically eat legumes because they have phytic acid, which binds to nutrients in the food, preventing you from absorbing them. They also are hard on the stomach and can cause digestive problems. I avoid tofu as well because it is highly processed and is packed full of estrogen. I try to eat most of my food from the outside aisles of the grocery store – veggies, fruits, meats, fish 😉

    Hi! So how do you keep your milk supply up eating this way? Does the fasting not affect it very much? or working out a ton?! I just feel like it affected my supply. I’m curious about your experience so far

      Hi Sara! While breastfeeding, I am not fasting. I need to feed my body while I’m keeping my milk supply up! I haven’t started working out a lot yet so not sure if it will affect my supply.

    Great info! Thank you! Love the salad dressing recipe! How do you feel about chick peas? I just read they can be gut irritating? I avoid legumes but so love Hummus!!

      Hi Wendy! One of my fave dressings 🙂 I feel the same way – love hummus! I have it in moderation. The best way to avoid it irritating your gut is, making it at home with sprouted beans!
