If you are struggling with food allergies and limitations in your diet, you probably feel discouraged by the seemingly short list of foods you can still eat and the long list that you can’t. The changes you need to make may feel impossible.
We’ve partnered with Amy Mihaly, Certified GAPS Practitioner and a Family Nurse Practitioner at the Be Well Clinic, to put together a series of blog posts that we are calling Beyond Limits. Our hope is to provide a little encouragement and a lot of wisdom for those of us going through a massive transition with food.
Amy has always believed there should be a natural way to eat, live and treat disease. After experiencing her own healing on the GAPS protocol, she passionately teaches how to listen and work with your body to bring healing. If you are struggling with food allergies, eating more healthfully, or a new way of eating that has been “forced” upon you, please join us and read on…

Amy has put together 15 recipes that are available to you through your Plan to Eat account. Many of these recipes promote healing, some are designed to help avoid common allergens, and some of them are simply to get us in the kitchen cooking real food instead of pulling something out of a box.
All of these recipes are available through the desktop version of your Plan to Eat account by clicking on the Challenges tab and selecting “Beyond Limits” in the dropdown menu.
No Bake Oatmeal Cookies (gluten, dairy, and egg free!)
We reached out to our friend Anna from The Little Blue Mixer to see if she could come up with a simple baked goodie that avoids three of the big allergens: gluten, dairy, and egg. These No Bake Oatmeal Cookies are a delicious alternative to a normal cookie with you that is dairy, gluten, and egg free. Even if you don’t have any food restrictions you are going to love these! They are full of fudgy chocolate and oats that will definitely fill your craving for a sweet treat while not compromising your well being. Read on…
“Eating is, I believe, the most important thing we can do for our bodies. Eating well affects our physical health, improves our quality of life, supports our emotional well-being, increases mental clarity, reduces our stress, improves work productivity, and contributes to the enjoyment of everyday life. Even with the impressive resume, we don’t take the time to eat well.
Give yourself permission to make food a priority. Take the time, spend the money, and prepare it with love. Your return will be worth it!”
