This Grain Free Fig & Vanilla Granola fills the house with the most heavenly scent! I could make it everyday, just for that smell.  It is super easy to make, only takes about 10 minutes of hands on time and it is full of fabulous nutrition and taste.

I have many parents coming into the community who's kids are new to the whole foods world.  That is why many of the recipes I create err on the sweeter side. Making these homemade-whole food and gut healthy versions of processed foods a little on the sweeter side at first tends to make for an easier transition.  Once your taste buds are adjusted you can begin cutting back on the sweetener.  This recipe calls for 1/3 cup of honey.  You could use half of that amount and still get a great result.

 
Even with the full complement of honey and dried fruit, this granola packs a good nutrient punch and less sugar than the packaged variety. Full of fiber, protein and gut healthy fat it keeps blood sugar balanced and energy purring along.  It also comes with a full compliment of of micro-nutrients like potassium, magnesium, zinc and vitamins A and K just to name a few!  A big upgrade to that box of Quaker Oats Granola that might have had a spot on your shelf before today!
 
I hope you will give this grain free Fig & Vanilla Granola a try, maybe even this weekend, and I'd love to hear your what you think.

The benefits and uses of Traditional Chinese Medicine for our kids with chronic health concerns.

In this episode of The Kid’s Health Revolution Podcast I talk with Dr. Erin Legare Tremblay about how the ancient art of Traditional Chinese Medicine can help our kid’s bodies find balanced health and healing.

We talk about:

  • How TCM approaches chronic illnesses of all kinds.
  • How a doctor of TCM will customize this approach depending on the unique individual.
  • How the flow of energy in meridians affect our kid’s health.
  • How Yin and Yang energy balance in the body can influence your child’s health.
  • The different treatments used by TCM doctors including cupping, herbs, diet and acupuncture.
  • The pacing of treatment.
  • The microbiome.
  • How stress and trauma affects our kids health.
  • Some of the common herbs you can use as a parent to help your child with eczema.

Have a listen and if you have questions about Traditional Chinese Medicine for your child (or any other questions), be sure to ask in the comments section and we will follow up with you!

Here is to your continued success on the journey to helping find health and healing for your child!

I am not a medical doctor. I am a certified Holistic Nutrition Consultant, certified GAPS practitioner and certified Counsellor. My experience and personal research in order to help my son has taught me a lot about autoimmune and chronic illness from this holistic and functional medicine perspective and I want to share that information with you.
