The focus of this photo is that little red flag 🚩from last night's dinner with @shannon_esti ... . Often patients express justifiable frustration that they can't enjoy meals out with friends and family due to dietary restrictions πŸ˜”. . They feel dismissed by waitstaff or even "glutenized" 😱 even though they where assured the meal would be prepared carefully to avoid gluten... or dairy, or soy, or whatever other dietary restrictions they had mentioned. . I have also often as a patron explained to wait staff why it was essential our order was free of cross contamination, and even had an all out lesson in the difference between reactivities and why it was essential to be vigilant 🧐. . πŸ‘‰πŸ½ I even had a talk with a banquet facility manager once when the staff labeled toubeleh made with cracked wheat (bulgar) as "gluten-free" (it is NOT) πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ. . So you can imagine how much I appreciate the added attention that @thesmithrestaurant gives special orders 😍. No exasperation at menu modifications, no dismissal... in fact a careful review of all ingredients and exactly how they're made given freely and precisely by the staff πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ€“πŸ’•. . I know it's frustrating to those of you on special diets to find clean, accommodating restaurants... and those of us in places like NYC and LA probably have it easiest... . πŸ‘‰πŸ½ But don't be afraid to stand your ground and courteously ask for what you need πŸ’ͺ🏽☺️. You deserve to have a nice meal out with your friends and family that you enjoy and doesn't make you sick 🀒. . Do you have favorite restaurants in your area that you love because of their dedication to clean ingredients and attention to food restrictions? . 🚩Shout them out in the comments below πŸ‘‡πŸ½ and don't forget their locationπŸ“for those of who might be traveling! . . #foodsensitivities #cleaneating #eatingouthealthy #eatingoutketo #autoimmunedisease #autoimmunepaleo #wahlsprotocol #FxMed #nutritionist #pharmacist #foodiefarmacist #farmacynotpharmacy #eatyourveggies #nutritionmatters #FunctionalMedicine #functionalnutrition #balanceddiet #healthylifestyle #healthyeats #eatingclean #eathealthyfats #paleolifestyle #ketoeats #lowcarbdiet #glutenfreedinner

You don't
I get this question All. The. Time! So I had to #regram πŸ“Έ . You don't "need" dairy to get calciumπŸ₯› - in fact the calcium that's found in dairy might be harder to absorb/use to build bones πŸ’ͺ🏽(though that's not really calciums only role in health...). . Meanwhile the calcium in veggies is not only absorbed better, but you're getting the synergy of the other minerals and vitamins to build a strong bone matrix and reduce inflammation at the same time πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ€“. . But don't take my word ... here's what @drmarkhyman has to say πŸ‘‡πŸ½ . "There’s no evidence that we need milk to strengthen our bones. β € β € The federal government tells us that milk is a perfect food that Americans should lap up daily, three glasses to be exactβ€”in spite of a large (and growing) body of research showing its lack of benefits and awful side effects. I agree, it is nature’s perfect food…but only if you are a calf!β € β € Humans are the only species that continues to drink milk after weaning. β € β € These dairy free options are not only better sources of calcium, but they also contain other great sources of nutrients. β € β € #calcium #foodasmedicine #functionalmedicine #drmarkhyman" . . . #FxMed #nutritionist #pharmacist #foodiefarmacist #farmacynotpharmacy #eatyourveggies #nutritionadvice #nutritionnerd #functionalnutrition #nutrition #paleoeats #paleolifestyle #phytonutrients #vitaminsandminerals #calciumdeficiency #calciumrichfoods #dairyfreeketo #dairyfreelife
Happy mother's day to all the Mamas ❀.

This is my mama (and the adorable baby is me πŸ˜‰πŸ‘ΌπŸ»).
.
She's always been a fashionista ... and having a tom boy of a daughter must have been torture πŸ˜±πŸ˜‚ but she still took me to softball ⚾️ and basketball πŸ€ and cheered louder than everyone else (not surprising, my mom is just as loud as me πŸ“’ actually louder lol).

BUT she was always most proud to take me to dance class ... the girliest hobby I had (though if you're a dancer you know there's nothing
Happy mother's day to all the Mamas ❀. . This is my mama (and the adorable baby is me πŸ˜‰πŸ‘ΌπŸ»). . She's always been a fashionista ... and having a tom boy of a daughter must have been torture πŸ˜±πŸ˜‚ but she still took me to softball ⚾️ and basketball πŸ€ and cheered louder than everyone else (not surprising, my mom is just as loud as me πŸ“’ actually louder lol). . BUT she was always most proud to take me to dance class ... the girliest hobby I had (though if you're a dancer you know there's nothing "girlie" about it)πŸ’ƒπŸ½πŸ˜‚ ... . πŸ‘‰πŸ½ She's also the one that inspired me to exercise, eat healthy, and emphasized the importance of #selfcare for health. . She exercised regularlyπŸ‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ ... and would drag me on long walks outside πŸšΆπŸ»β€β™€οΈ (when I'd rather be playing Nintendo INside). . She stayed away from sugar and carbs and ate butter and olive oil back when "fat was evil" πŸ€”. . She talked about loading up on veggies and fruit before the term #plantbaseddiet was a thing... in fact my after school snack growing up was a bowl of fruit πŸŒπŸ‡πŸ“πŸ’and/or sliced veggies πŸ₯•πŸ₯¦πŸ₯— ... which I was SO not a fan of at the time (I wanted lunchables and fruit in gusher and rolled-up form exclusively). . So in case you wonder where I get it from ... you can blame my Mama πŸ˜‰πŸ€“ the OG of the #cleaneating movement πŸ’•. . Enjoy your day Mamas 😍 and remember it might not be obvious now ... but your kiddos are watching and learning from how you eat and promote your own health... And you're doing an AH-mazing job πŸ₯°. . . #igetitfrommymama #mothersdaylove #likemotherlikedaughterπŸ‘­ #nutritionist #pharmacist #foodiefarmacist #farmacynotpharmacy #eatyourveggies #nutrigenomics #genetics #nutritiongoals #Functionalmedicine #functionalnutrition #balanceddiet #healthylifestyle #healthyeats #eathealthyfats #foodisfuel
