Went to #SIBOcon2019 and can’t even begin to tell you how inspired I am. There’s SO much innovative research being done on SIBO with information being presented from various angles. My takeaways from this weekend are:
•Our gut microbiome can be altered by SO many different things, such as diet, lifestyle factors, environmental exposures, etc.
•Our microbiome is given to us at birth and is altered by our mode of delivery and whether or not we were breastfed.
•The gut microbiome is basically our “second brain” and controls 90% of our immune function. So a healthy and diverse microbiome is important for healthy function.
Also, @nerdy.x.nature and I became newscasters for the SIBO conference (aka small intestine bacterial overgrowth) and had such a fun time interviewing all the SIBO experts and sampling all the fun products.
Catch our IG takeover at @bastyruniversity! Can’t wait to share all the fun gut related info I learned!
Wow. Wow. Wow. @andaluca_restaurant Executive Chef @tiffanylayco blew us away with her INCREDIBLE and delicious SIBO menu last night for the SIBOCon2019 dinner.
Basing the entire menu on @dr.nirala.jacobi SIBO Bi Phasic Diet and using my SIBO cookbooks as a reference, she created a 7-course degustation menu that was sublime.
Featuring gorgeous local produce, she allowed the flavours of the ingredients to shine through, while thinking creatively to create delicious sauces and purées to accompany the proteins.
I’m writing my 4th SIBO Cookbook and am so inspired by her meal last night. I love seeing how others take the diet protocol and come up with their own recipes.
If you’re ever in Seattle and want to hold your own SIBO dinner party, I can’t recommend Tiffany and Andaluca highly enough.
Thank you for allowing us SIBO folk to eat a sensational meal. A restricted diet doesn’t need to equal bland and boring food. 👏🏼
