Brightly colored, naturally sweet and full of vitamins, nutrients and antioxidants, fruit is considered nature’s candy and offers an array of health benefits. But as you may have heard, not all fruit may be best for everyone, and different types of fruit (along with how they are eaten) can determine the positive or negative effects that they have on your body.

Here at the Eleven Eleven Wellness Center, we believe that there is not one diet that is right for everyone, which means we encourage patients to get curious about how certain foods make them feel to determine if they work well with their body. Although not all foods follow this individualized plan (things like gluten and sugar are generally no-nos), dairy is one of the foods we spend time talking about with patients, and that is because there are a few things to consider when deciding if dairy is a good choice.
Coming out of 10 years of chronic illness has made me look at life in a different way. I’ve realized that things happen for us, not to us; something new comes into our lives or something happens to make us change. For me it was Lyme disease, PCOS, hypothyroidism, leaky gut, and so much more. When I had to cut out gluten, dairy, soy, sugar, and corn, I thought my life was ending but I learned that we can come out of any struggle in our life on the other side of it and prove to ourselves that we can not only survive, but thrive.
What if you could drink your way to glowing skin? When it comes to your body, especially your skin, you are what you eat.

We’ve upgraded the ever-popular avocado toast with homemade gluten-free bread and a poached egg, on top, for added protein and nutrients.
We now know that the yolk contains most of the egg’s nutrients, so it’s about time we change your mind about egg yolks (if we haven’t already)! The yolk contains choline, which is essential for the functioning of all cells, especially brain cells. Egg yolks also contain antioxidants; B vitamins, including B12; vitamin A; iron; selenium; biotin; phosphorous, and other various trace nutrients. Egg whites, alone, lack many of the nutrients that are found in the yolk, a nutrition powerhouse.

Spring has been unusually cold, and the chilly temps have us craving something sweet and nurturing. This thick, creamy, chocolatey smoothie bowl really hits the spot (without the guilt).
