- Stacy is going to visit Sarah soon!
- Sarah is already planning food and her girls are talking about what games they are going to play together. Stacy's family is having Easter dinner at Sarah's house.
- Stacy loves having someone on the podcast with an accent, because Sarah is losing hers. Sophie is originally from Belgium and moved to Colorado in 2000.
- In 2009 she got very sick and was diagnosed with Hashimoto's.
- Gluten-free diet didn't work for her. She found the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) in 2012, which was life-changing. She started blogging to share her recipes and results with the world.
- Sarah has had a sneak peak of the book and it is amazing! Sophie is a master as developing amazing flavor with simple ingredients and cooking techniques. Sarah highly recommends both of her books!
- The answer is not one-size fits all and depends on a lot of variables. When she started her journey her children were young and she could direct their food choices. She was in complete control of the kitchen and cooked all the meals.
- She cooked one core meal with some additions when necessary. Sometimes her husband would like rice or quinoa on the side, which was easy to do. They had the same common meal, which made things easier for her.
- They decided as a family that they would not allow gluten in the house.
- This was a red line that no one would cross.
- They were all kept in one place and it was Sophie's responsibility to not get into them. It was easy at the beginning to avoid non-AIP foods because she was in pain and wanted to get better. It got harder as she felt better.
- They got jobs, and their own money, and started eating outside the home. Each of their three children went their own way regarding their food choices.
- Sophie had to choose her battles.
- Outside the home they could make their own choices. Inside the home there would be no gluten allowed.
- They encourage him to make the best choices he can, but it's ultimately his decision. He knows he doesn't feel well when he eats gluten, and usually choses not to outside the home. You can't force kids, but just educated and enable them to make the right decision.
- Sarah has a history of binge-eating. Sophie was motivated at the beginning and very strict, which gave her results very quickly.
- When she started to feel better, it got harder to be as strict. She has learned what she can and can't get away with. Sophie is an abstainer- it's all or nothing and she has a hard time "just having one."
- If something has gluten in it, she isn't even tempted by it. Everyone has their own limitations and should learn to listen to their bodies.
- It's the things that don't cause her a lot of distress that she tends to want to overeat. It is especially hard when her kids and family are eating these things.
- It is important to not let an indulgent become a snowball. Or for one bad choice to be permission to make a lot more bad choices. The best thing you can do to recover after an indulgence is to turn to nutrient-dense and healing foods.
- When a craving hit she wasn't telling herself "no," but "yes, eat these healthy things."
- Stacy wants to know what recipe she struggled with the most.
- Sophie has had a hard time coming up with dressings and sauces because she doesn't often use them.
