Alignment and Natural Movement:
Hear about how we set up our home offices: Brittany does more standing, Alex changes up ways to sit on the floor.
Movement throughout the day: incorporating movement into breaks, our take on treadmill desks, functional movements and varied positions, setting timers, and the importance of being outside.

Changing Food Preferences:
Making changes from breakfast can be the most challenging thing. Here are our oatmeal-type alternatives:

Alex’s experience with Paleo Baked Goods when first starting Paleo and how Brittany went way too low carb: feeling satiated from good carbs and fat sources (sweet potatoes, ghee, coconut oil) can set up a better baseline for making new, positive food choices.
Changing food preferences in family: exposure, hiding things appropriately, no pressure, and trying a bite.
How to make changes slowly.
Nuts are designed by nature to protect themselves; because of this, they are quite difficult to digest. This difficulty in digesting stems from phytic acids, missing enzymes, and how minerals are bound.
Other nut considerations: omega 6s and inflammation, as well as co-processing with unstable oils.
How to prepare nuts in a more digest-friendly way: soaking (for about 8 hours), sprouting, dehydrating, and roasting. More on how to sprout buckwheat.
Almond flour vs Nut Butters
Fun cashew fact!
Nut recommendations: use an elimination diet to find your perfect balance, as well as sourcing and preparing as needed.
Alex’s favorite use for nuts: homemade Larabars!
