My goal is to make useful information about healthy living simple to find. When I learned that my health wouldn’t allow me to eat many things I loved, I had to completely rethink my life. This was a daunting endeavor!
Where in the world do you start? How do you know where to shop and what to shop for? What brands are best? Which products are healthy and which products claim to be? When something reads ‘gluten free’, does that automatically make it good for you?
Suddenly, I became a label reading maniac. (My husband can attest to this!) I now know the ingredients of every product on every shelf in Earth Fare. Well, this might not be entirely accurate, but you know what I mean!
My particular diet restrictions are sugar, gluten, dairy, corn, peanuts, crustaceans and soy (and meat and tomatoes for a season.) What?! That’s crazy! Yes. It really is. But I can honestly say I am so close to being completely pain free because of it. Whether you are just gluten free eaters, lactose intolerant, or simply want to eat healthy and delicious food – welcome!
Anyone who is allergic or unable to have a particular food can understand how difficult it can be, as well as how much time and effort it takes to change. This is the inspiration behind Jessica Jo’s Kitchen: to make the answers to the above questions readily available for you. This blog is created for you. Be interactive. Share your thoughts, recipes, and experiences with me. Who knows? You may meet a new food-friend along the way.
Be on the lookout for weekly recipes, tips, food lessons, healthy restaurant finds, best brands, good deals, etc.. Let’s get started!
