Alicia Galvin MEd, RD, CLT, IFNCP

Registered & Licensed Dietitian, with a Masters in Counseling. Also a Certified LEAP Therapist (CLT). My approach to nutritional counseling is a collaborative one, by which I view a person holistically- looking at sleeping and eating patterns, as well as how that person upholds their level of wellness.

πŸ‘‰πŸΌ If you’re looking πŸ‘€ for a quick and easy meal you’ve found it! πŸŽ‰

Gone are the days when you would have to spend ⏰ hours in the kitchen just to whip up a simple 🍜 meal. Thanks to recipes like these, you only really need one pan and a few minutes of prep time.

This is perfect for πŸ‘©πŸΌβ€πŸ­πŸ‘©πŸ½β€πŸ’»πŸ§‘πŸΏβ€βœˆοΈπŸ‘¨πŸΌβ€βš–οΈbusy people who come home a little late from work but still want to πŸ‘©πŸΌβ€πŸ³ cook something homemade for the family. Rather than go for πŸ₯‘ take-out or πŸ”πŸŸπŸŒ­ fast food, give this a try instead. πŸ’₯

πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈ SIBO can have many causes but MOST commonly can be from an episode of πŸ‘‰πŸΌfood poisoningπŸ‘ˆπŸΌ.

Eradication and management involves a comprehensive approach, including herbal supplements and/or prescription antibiotics along with dietary modifications πŸ₯‘πŸ πŸŽ and specific probiotics and digestive support.

While SIBO does have a πŸ™†πŸ»β€β™€οΈ high relapse rate, with proper management and interventions, along with a maintenance protocol to prevent it from coming back, symptoms and discomfort can be greatly reduced.

Sometimes manual manipulation such as visceral manipulation techniques can help resolve adhesions and scar tissue which will make the eradication of SIBO more effective.🦠

πŸ‘‰πŸΌ This involves drinking a fermentable sugar solution so that the 🦠 bacteria will ferment and give off either hydrogen or methane gas.

If there are bacteria present in the small intestine then the 🌬breath test will capture a rise in these gasesπŸ’¨ as the bacteria produce them as a result of their fermentation. You collect a breath sample every ⏰ 20–30 minutes over the course of 2–3 hours.

Currently, MDs and GI doctors can order tests, but there are several labs that allow RDs to order the breath testing.

πŸ’― Be thankful for every opportunity you get in life that is, when life gives you πŸ‹ lemons, make lemonade out of it.

It doesn’t matter if you are always πŸ† successful or not, but what matters is the πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈ honest effort that you put in to want to accomplish your goals.

When you try to do everything with your best efforts, then you effortlesslyπŸ’« put in hard work than you have to do; which is something more significant than daily routine work.

πŸ’ͺ🏼 Never give up and strive on – this is the main mantra for success, and one should believe in it all their life.

So, do well whatever you do and πŸ™…πŸ»β€β™€οΈ do not think of the results.

🍠 Sweet potatoes are from the morning glory family, Convolvulaceae, and πŸ₯” white potatoes are nightshades, or Solanaceae. πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈ The edible part of these plants are the tubers that grow on the roots.

πŸ‘‰πŸΌ Sweet potatoes typically have brown skin and orange flesh but also come in purple, yellow, and red varieties. πŸ‘‰πŸΌ Regular potatoes come in shades of brown, yellow, and red and have white or yellow flesh.

Both types of potatoes are rich in βœ… fiber, βœ… carbs, and βœ… vitamins B6 and C. White potatoes are higher in βœ… potassium, whereas sweet potatoes contain more βœ… vitamin A.

Often, sweet potatoes are touted as being healthier than white potatoes, but in reality, πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ both types can be highly nutritious and delicious! ✨

They come from separate plant families, offer different nutrients, and affect your 🩸 blood sugar differently.
