Eating seasonally, will not only boost your immune system but actually improve your mood and benefit your body.

I suggest purchasing a gluten free crust or making your own.
Benefits Of Sweet Potatoes:
What if gluten is the cause of your health problems? It very well could be. Especially if you’re having unexplained rashes, migraines, digestive issues, fatigue, brain fog and unexplained weight loss or weight gain. Gluten could be triggering more than 300 different symptoms. Imagine that!
It’s an interesting, and important, question to ask. Fortunately, Dr. Tom O‘Bryan has made it part of his personal mission to move this question into today’s conversations between patients and healthcare professionals. Asking this question could, potentially, improve the lives of millions now instead of years from now, which is how long it often takes for groundbreaking research to make it to mainstream practice.
That’s why I encourage you to register for the world’s first Gluten Summit. Dr. O’Bryan has gathered experts and opinion leaders around the world on the topics of gluten-related disorders, healthy living and nutrition, each in one-to-one interviews about their particular areas of expertise.
Don’t let inflammation take you down. Get to the root cause and start eating more plant based root veggies this time of year. Try substituting wheat for gluten free options. Get in tune with how you feel…physically and mentally.
