Recipe is paleo, gluten-free, dairy-free, grain-free, nut-free, seed-free, peanut-free, soy-free, coconut-free, refined sugar free, but chocolate-full! I like working out at night, as the last thing that I am doing during the day, as a separation between work and rest, somehow encompassing both and working to relax me and ease me into sleep (maybe). The […]
As a teenager and into my twenties, my favorite cracky snack/dessert ever was Little Debbie Nutty Bars. Ugh! Yep, I couldn’t get enough. I would buy a box and eat the whole box in one sitting… Yeah, I’ve never been challenged with sugar addiction! Right… So those crunchy, delicious Little Debbie Nutty Bars contain gluten, […]
I love the combination of sweet and sour. So when organic Meyer lemons showed-up at the natural food store on sale—my mind began racing with all of the wonderful things those Meyer lemons and I could do together. Meyer lemons to me indicate the coming arrival of spring. To simply smell the flowery citrus aroma […]
“In our town, Halloween was terrifying and thrilling, and there was a whiff of homicide. We’d travel by foot in the dark for miles, collecting candy, watching out for adults who seemed too eager to give us treats.” — Rosecrans Baldwin Halloween is no longer revered and feared as the time of year when the veil […]
“[T]hat old September feeling, left over from school days, of summer passing, vacation nearly done, obligations gathering, books and football in the air … Another fall, another turned page: there was something of jubilee in that annual autumnal beginning, as if last year’s mistakes had been wiped clean by summer.” ― Wallace Stegner, Angle of Repose
The first step to changing your relationship to food is to understand that relationship. Uncontrollable food cravings can make changing to a healthier lifestyle daunting and depressing. Social stigmatization can make it overwhelming and feel futile. Some friends, family, lovers, coaches and practitioners may even make you feel like there is something wrong with you […]
If you have food sensitivities—you have leaky gut. If you have bacterial overgrowth, candida overgrowth or a parasitic infection—you have leaky gut. If you have an autoimmune disease, you at one time had leaky gut and may still have it. Hyper-permeability of the small intestinal mucosal lining or leaky gut syndrome (LGS) is extremely common […]
So you may find it strange that a Digestive Health Specialist is writing about pain relief and arthritis… Hmm… Well, what does that tell you? What is Arthritis? And why are you lumping other forms of pain in with it? The word “arthritis” simply means “joint inflammation.” There are generally believed to be two types: […]

What Katie’s Clients are Saying:
So here is my weekly update from week 2 of the diet: I’ve continued to stick to the diet, despite some challenges. We went to Moab for four days for a wedding, so I had the combined challenge of travel + wedding (in our room we had a mini kitchen, but I only had a microwave for cooking). But I’ve been so motivated by the positive changes I’ve experienced that I found a way to stick with it…It did give me healthy respect for how important it is to stay fueled.I continue to see positive results. My gut feels great, I have almost no gas anymore, my joints feel good, my stools are solid and regular,And here’s the real kicker: I’m already starting to see significant improvement in my skin! The plaques are thinner and are even starting to break up. They are still itchy and irritable sometimes, but I am just blown away that I’m already seeing this kind of improvement. I can’t tell you how exciting that is for me….On top of all that, I’ve lost some weight and I’m lookin’ good 😉 Thank you so much for this opportunity Katie!
I believe I’ve discovered the answer to life, the universe and everything, which for me means exceptional health, through diet. I found this with the help of one of the best nutritionists and health experts one could possibly ask to work with and that is Ms. Katie Bauer of the Nourished Health Wellness Center. It is with her guidance I was able to change my diet, stop my immune system from getting the best of me and achieved a level of energy that allowed me to reincorporate exercise into my life and discover a passion for yoga.
It is not an exaggeration to say that Katie Bauer has changed our lives. Our children were both diagnosed earlier this year with an autoimmune disease, which causes them to progressively become allergic or intolerant to more and more foods. When we met Katie 6 months ago, my younger daughter wasn’t sleeping or staying in school because she was in constant pain. My older daughter had lost 10% of her body weight in the previous month because she had no appetite. Our doctor is wonderful, but his suggestion to put our kids on elemental formula or long-term steroids was not what we were comfortable with. And then we found Katie Bauer. Katie immediately had my children tested for food intolerances, and put them on a radically different eating plan. Within 5 days on Katie’s plan, my children were like new kids. My younger daughter’s chronic stomach pain went away, along with her chronic headaches, eye pain and joint pain. Perhaps more surprisingly, a few months after we started working with Katie, my daughter had an appointment with her eye doctor, and her eye sight had improved so significantly that she needed new lenses. My older daughter regained her appetite and all of the weight she had lost. We have followed Katie Bauer’s suggestions religiously, and she has been with us every step of the way– she is responsive, extensively knowledgeable, and most importantly, so passionate about what she does. Truthfully, I’m not sure exactly how it all works, but it really does, and I’m am eternally grateful to Katie for everything she does for us….
Have I told you that you’re amazing? Seriously… if it weren’t for you I may have never discovered, or at least not for a long while, that I have high thyroid antibodies. Yep, that’s right, the test results are in, and my TPO AB is at 122. And the way I see it, it’s quite a blessing discover another piece of the puzzle to my temperamental body, because it just allows me to better take care of myself. So yes, you are amazing for knowing the signs and for encouraging me to get my antibodies tested. Thank you thank you!!!! You are seriously a blessing in my life. (I hope you don’t mind me gushing like this…)
