A few years ago, my daughter, who is dyslexic and has a hard time staying focused, was also having allergic reactions to wheat and dairy products.
I went to my friend Alain for help in educating us on how to change our diet. He prepared a shopping list for me and followed up with teaching me how to prepare delicious meals that were fun to make and left us feeling very satisfied and never deprived. He also went through my refrigerator and pantry and helped me get rid of all that was being toxic to our bodies, and gave me healthy alternatives to all of those foods that I thought I couldn’t do without.
My daughter showed great improvement. She no longer had dark circles under her eyes, and she was better able to stay focused. And I was enjoying making all those new dishes, feeling always satisfied with much smaller portions of the “good stuff”, and feeling more in control by being able to take care of the problem in my own home.
He taught us how to eat healthier and now I continue to buy the correct ingredients, and look back at how simple changes and knowledge have made great changes to our way of living.
Thank you Alain for teaching me so much and reinforcing that “we are what we eat”. Your patience, knowledge of nutrition, love for food, and desire to make us all healthier human beings transformed the way I see food.
