Chef Catherine keeps a mainly Paleo diet.
Chef Catherine has worked with clients who have various health challenges, from cancer to autoimmune conditions. She is well versed in preparing the Paleo Diet, Autoimmune Paleo Protocol, Anti-Inflammatory Diet to Lo-Salt, and numerous other special diets for various health conditions. Although she is not a nutritionist she is very knowledge about nutrition and well balanced meals.
The Autoimmune Paleo Protocol is a diet based on delicious vegetables, proteins and healthy fats. It is prescribed for sufferers of autoimmune conditions because it brings down inflammation in the body so that the body can begin a healing process. When a body is in a state of inflammation, it is like a fire is raging. AIP is based on Paleo meals and in addition, takes away main allergens, dairy, wheat, soy, corn, sugar, particular spices and anything artificial to clean out the system and calm the fire. The body can then start the healing process.
