the rise of bohemian pantry
(Gluten not required at this pantry party but YOU are!)
Frankly (and I’m being really open with you here) I had no idea I could really bake until I was forced by necessity.
I’m a poster child for inflammation. Inflammation translates to DISTRESS and IMBALANCE in the body. Seriously, anything with gluten, refined sugar and grains and I’ll just bloat up like an Oompa Loompa (are we vibing here?) It’s like an uninvited guest pulling an all-nighter in my body and rages on for days. My body and mind would feel hungover for days. Not my best look and feel.
You see where this party was headed?
Understanding the dire effects of an inflammatory lifestyle, I embraced my new, sobering reality. I held myself responsible, accountable and fundamentally shifted and looked for a new party theme for my new “enlightened” lifestyle.
I zenned on Superfoods.
Finding the affiliated and inspirational recipes to cook for my converted lifestyle that were like a 6-pack of nutrient needs: anti-inflammatory, glycemic friendly, gluten free, nutritionally neighborly for the gut and nutritionally brotherly for the body were easy. All that in a recipe to bake (who doesn’t want a Mardi Gras on their plate and palate?) and packed with Superfoods, not so much. I became frustrated, empowered then driven.
