4 Ways You Can DIY Your Health and Wellness while being GLUTEN FREE!

4 Ways You Can DIY Your  Health and Wellness while being GLUTEN FREE!

You really can DIY your health and wellness with these four fantastic DIY recipes. 

From reducing stress to reducing inflammation, you can find ways to help yourself at home.


Remember to Eat Breakfast!

Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day! It resets your system and fuels your brain. Skipping breakfast can lead to burn out and even diabetes. 

That’s why I love eating yogurt smoothies in the morning! They are quick (especially if you prepare a few in plastic bags and throw them in the freezer ahead of time) and easy! 

I love a peach and cranberry smoothie. 

Add one peeled peach with 10 cranberries to half a cup of vanilla yogurt to a blender with one fourth a cup of milk and you have a delicious, nutritious treat! 

Don’t forget to add a scoop of plain protein powder to get that extra boost of nutrition!






Drink More Anti-Inflammatory Tea

Turmeric is a wonder spice that actually has anti-inflammatory properties. 

Curcumin, the substance in turmeric that has anti-inflammatory properties, is essential for relaxing tired muscles. Adding ginger boosts the health benefits! 

Add ½ a teaspoon of ground ginger to ½ teaspoon of turmeric to 2 cups water and bring to a boil on the stovetop. Add honey to taste and strain.

Find a Chance to Reduce Stress by Meditating with Mindfulness 

Meditation and Mindfulness is a key feature in reducing stress. Doctors say that meditation and mindfulness can rewire the brain into being less stressed and more happy. 

All you need is a couple of quiet minutes – I like the time before I go to sleep – to take the time to meditate. 

I follow prerecorded speeches from apps such as Headspace and The Mindfulness App, both of which have free versions, in order to follow a mindful meditation for a short period of time.

Immune Boosting Rollerbottle Recipe 

Essential oils have enriched lives for thousands of years, offering a variety of benefits from cosmetic and dietary purposes to spiritual and religious use.

Extracted through careful steam distillation, resin tapping, and cold pressing, the purest essential oils are far more powerful than the botanicals from which they come.

You can access the power of essential oils in many ways, but the most common practices include aromatic diffusion, topical application, and dietary consumption. These methods bring the pure essence of health-promoting botanicals to your home, family, and life.

10 drops Thieves
10 drops Lemon
10 drops Frankincense
5 drops Peppermint
10mL roller bottle
top up with carrier oil or V-6

Roll on bottom of feet then throw on socks when you feel you need an immune boost. Apply as often as 1x per hour depending on discomfort.

It’s important to know that not all essential oils are created equal—you can’t just go out to a retailer and trust that you’re getting the good stuff. 

Lucky for you, I’ve got a source I trust—and they’ve also got that super-crunchy daily drink that’s got me feeling 10 years younger.

7 Things to Know When Starting a Gluten Free Lifestyle

7 Things to Know When Starting a Gluten Free Lifestyle
Honestly, when I was diagnosed with a Wheat, Barley, etc. allergy (glutens), I thought it was the end of the world. 

I was devestated. 

I thought that I would never enjoy the things I loved again and that I was always going to be deprived. 

In reality, it took a lot of learning, but I eventually figured things out. :) 

1. Take a Moment to Grieve

You have lost a big part of your lifestyle and grieving is ok. What's not okay is being bitter. Grieve the loss and then get on with it. You dont want to have those feelings for ever weighing on you. 

2. Buckle Up

You have a LOT of learning to do. Making sure you read every ingredient list on the products you consume, learning where to dind gluten free foods and learning what arethe best out there is going to take time and that is ok. 

3. Find Your Support System

Know that this change takes time and having a support system is beneficial to your overall wellbeing. People that you can trust to do the same things you do (reading labels) and ones that will support you in eating what is best for you is vital to your success. If you have people who encourage you to eat gluten free when that donut is calling will help you keep safe! 

4. Cook Your Heart Out

You are going to have to start cooking your own meals. That doesnt mean every day you have to cook everything, but that does mean that cooking your own food will ensure you stay safe. 

5. Bring Your Own Food

You might have to start bringing your own food to events, or at least until your support system understands gluten free. Luckily, it has become very popular in recent days and most people know what gluten free is, even if it is just the basics. 

6. Gluten Can be in Everything

Shampoos, cosmetics, lotions, and more can have gluten containing ingredients. Make sure to look at your label with anything that is going to be in contact with your skin (your biggest organ). 

7. When in Doubt, Go Without

If you are unsure of the ingredients, then dont use it or have it.

Hope these help!
