As I write this post the world and many countries are going into lockdown mode due to the coronavirus. It feels a bit scary as the things most important to us feel threatened such as our income, our health and the loved ones we are close to.
When the grocery budget gets tight and we have to bunker down yet want to stay healthy, plant-based protein sources such as dried beans that store well are an inexpensive protein source in comparison to animal protein…. Unless your hunting for your food which is not very likely these days.

If you are prone to acne, have oily skin and clogged pores then salicylic acid is the active ingredient used in skincare that you are looking for.
Salicylic acid is effective at reducing acne, sloughing off dead skin cells, unclogging pores and minimizing the appearance of pores thus improving the texture of the skin for that radiant, smooth skin that we are all looking for.
But these are only a few of the many benefits of salicylic acid.
When I first read the headline reversing insulin resistance with a low-fat vegan diet with Robby and Cyrus on the Energy Blueprint Podcast it caught my attention. How are 2 guys reversing insulin resistance on a low-fat vegan diet when this is the opposite to what we have been taught? While I have never been afraid of plant-based whole food carbohydrates, the low-fat aspect as well was very intriguing.

I first became aware of lactobacillus l reuteri through what I would call an intuitive dream. I have come to learn that when insights or intuition hits to it is something to pay attention to so when I woke in the middle of the night from a deep sleep with the words lactobacillus l reuteri in my head and the impression/feeling that L reuteri was connected to SIBO I made a point of waking myself up enough to repeat the name lactobacillus L reuteri several times in my head while reminding myself to make sure I remembered the name of this l reuteri probiotic that I had never really heard of or paid any special attention to. (You know you’re a gut health/ nutrition nerd when your dreaming of probiotics lol)
