Food Warrior Series: The Long Tricky Road To Diagnosis w/ AndreAnna

July 18, 2012

AndreAnna of Life As A Plate eats a Paleo Diet to help manage her PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) and her overall health. (Her transformation has been incredible. See her tell her story here.) But when she changed her diet to manage her own health, she noticed a big change in her family as well. That started them all on a road through doctors visits, tests, one unnecessary operation, and more doctors. All of this, ultimately guided by her mother’s intuition and passion, would lead them (her husband, and two children) to be diagnosed with celiac disease. And as a result be healthier than they’ve ever been before.

Please watch her amazing story and share it widely and wildly.

About the Author ()

Lillian's Test Kitchen is an online cooking web series. The recipes in this series are always grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, and cane sugar-free. The recipes are also all (at this point) paleo. Some are vegan. Some are raw. I use the best ingredients I can find (and afford). But Lillian's Test Kitchen is not so much about food as it is about the experience of trying something you have never tried before and then finding the joy, comedy and laughter in those small moments in spite of and also often, because of dietary restrictions. My goal is to inspire others to take their health into their own hands and make their own food.

    This is a great little interview — thanks. I love AndreAnna, and her blog, and I love you, Lillian! You both make eating this way seem so fun and easy — a refreshing change from all of the Paleo dogma out there. Yay!

    I’m so impressed with AndreAnna… for being a fighter as she kept looking for answers for herself and her family. And for sticking to a plan for all of them. Thanks for interviewing her and sharing her story with us.
