The Weekly Menu July 18

Hi everyone!   This week I’m going to have my microbiome sequenced thanks to uBiome.  The low FODMAP diet set both of us off the rails. Our bodies straight up broke down – and Brett’s allergies/sinus infections were out of control.  I think our microbiome missed the health benefits of onion, garlic, loads of veggies and fiber that we usually eat.  I’ll stay away from lactose (except for the Parmesan) and fructose (honey and agave and certain fruits), but that is it.  And we ordered some hefty herbal remedies.

Then I’ll have my gut bacteria sequenced again.  I’m kind of excited about finally fixing what has been bugging me for years… if I get useful information from the sequencing and the herbal stuff works!  If you are thinking about sequencing your own microbiome, you can use this link for 15% off all products.  And check out the microbiome challenge – there is a nice discount there, too (2 for 1 offer).  The uBiome blog explains more about the microbiome and what you should eat to nourish it.

So here is the gluten free, dairy/casein free, mostly organic and non GMO, weekly menu for this hot summer week (and yes, we’re having beef stew):

Hi! I'm Deana. This food blog is all about cooking wholesome real food and developing gluten free recipes for some of our favorite comfort foods. I also create weekly menus to save time and money while reducing stress and food waste. I had to start eating gluten-free in 2010 and dairy/casein-free (except for the occasional Parmesan or goat cheese) in 2014. I'm kind of a science nerd, too. In the '90s, I earned an undergrad degree in biochemistry from The University of Texas at Austin. Hook 'em! Then followed up with a PhD in biochemistry and a law degree from the University of Houston. I recently earned a certificate in genomics/sequence analysis from Johns Hopkins University, where I also took a very cool food microbiology course.
