Highlights from today's episode include:
At the very first beginning, during a few months, it was all a disaster. But since two American and Canadian bloggers, I've started, you know, getting to know how to cook, some vegan baking and stuff like that, how to replace eggs, and also how to deal with different gluten free flours. And then it just became very natural for me.
But you know, between…I had a choice, going gluten, dairy, whatever free and still suffering and taking a ton of medication and, you know, between the two choices from is really easy, but it's easier now that I am medication free than the first month.
Because I think it's extremely important, especially when you're fresh and will also come from a family that is absolutely obsessed with food. We are foodies. So yeah, so I really think it's absolutely important to enjoy your food, if you feel miserable at each meal, I think it's not going to work.
ABOUT BEA CAILLET:
I’m Bea Caillet, a French woman who has been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease ankylosing spondylitis; in February 2007. After almost 11 years of taking a lot of strong painkillers I decided to try healing myself naturally. One thing led to another, I went to a functional medicine doctor who told me I had to go “gluten and many other things” free. A little over a year on this diet I quit taking biotherapy and about 9 months later I was off all medication! That’s why in January 2020, I started my blog “Go Healthy With Bea” in order to share both my story and my gluten free recipes. A year and a half after creating my blog, I decided to go one step further by becoming an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, Certified Gluten free Practitioner and get a Certificate in plant based patisserie at Le Cordon Bleu London in order to transform a side hustle into a whole career change.
Core purpose/passion: When I was first diagnosed with my autoimmune condition, I was told that it was a life sentence: I would suffer and would have to take very strong painkillers all my life. I've proven them wrong. That’s what I want to tell the whole world. I want to give them hope, to inspire them. I want to educate people to listen to their body and respect it.
