An elimination diet is a short term diet used to determine foods that trigger inflammation within the body. Inflammation in the body contributes to many health problems such as autoimmune arthritis, acne, irritable bowel syndrome, and eczema -just to name a few!

That was a little cheesy, I know. Let’s just pretend I’m cooler than I actually am. What I’m trying to say is this stuffed chicken is absolutely to die for. It’s easy, moist, and jaw dropping -presentation wise. You know what they say, you eat with your eyes, then your nose, then your mouth. My family absolutely gushed over and fell in love with this dish, so much...Read More
