Personalized Nutrition For You

Metabolic Balance is an analysis of a person’s blood test results to find their personalized food list i.e. all the foods that are right for them to eat. Sometimes our analysis can be confused as being a food intolerance test. This is not the case! Metabolic Balance is in fact the opposite of a food intolerance test! From our prospective, classic food intolerance testing is very short term information. It is the response of the body to foods at the time of testing and is highly dependent on gut health, immune health and the quality/source of the food eaten. The Metabolic Balance analysis is about finding the foods required for changing health for the better. This may strongly influence and improve both gut and immune health and hence many previously suspected food intolerances can no longer be a problem. Metabolic Balance is knowledge that heals. Food intolerance testing is short term information that often confuses, restricts and can result in false positives, false negatives and nutrient insufficiency problems.

Let’s Talk Legumes!

Legumes are one of the best sources of vegetable protein and are far more than just a simple ingredient on the winter menu. 

For far too long, dishes with legumes have been considered simple or “just” for vegetarians. But after a number of star chefs showed creative ways to use peas, lentils, and beans, legumes started gaining popularity. The United Nations even named 2016 the International Year of Pulses (Legumes) to raise awareness about the sustainability, affordability, and versatility of this food group.
Since the legume group encompasses everything from quinoa to beans (there are over 12,000 different types of legumes), there are thousands of recipes to explore.
