Grain, Dairy, Nut, Sugar Free, AIP Friendly Tortillas

I had been searching for a recipe for tortillas for over 3 years.  I'd come across many, but they were never quite right.  They either fell apart or tasted terrible.  Many were made with coconut flour and a ton of eggs and ended up just tasting like egg.  And while I love coconut and eggs, it just wasn't right as a tortilla.

ALCAT Testing Results

I recently bit the bullet and purchased the ALCAT testing.  I won't lie, it is very expensive, but my numbers have been all over the place and I feel like I've been losing no matter which way I went.  With the testing, at least I know what truly affects me.  And luckily, that list is small, considering.

And So It Begins

This is a new blog to track my progress, but to also share all the information I gather along the way. I've titled it: Wellness in AutoImmunity: Trying to Create Health by Improving Nutrition Goals or WATCHING- We all need to start watching what we put into our bodies.  We are hurting ourselves and the people we love with the choices we make everyday.  The food and chemicals we put into our bodies are literally killing us.  My illnesses have, in some ways, been a blessing.  I have been aware of nutrition and have tried to find the right path for many years.  It wasn't until I got sick that I found how bad our diet and lifestyle in this country (and elsewhere nowadays) really is.  This is my journey to not only help myself, but to help my daughter, my family, and anyone else who might listen.
