The diet that is used for the weekly Nourishing Foods Menu Planners is a very simple and healthy diet that is very much like a Paleolithic diet, GAPS diet, or SCD diet.
This diet has been proven to help many people with a variety of physical and mental issues such as ongoing digestive problems, Celiac Disease, multiple food allergies, depression, anxiety, Autism, hypothyroidism, Hashimoto’s Disease and many others.
