Eggs, toasted gluten-free bread (or waffle, English muffin, or bagel), and tea turned out to be the perfect combination, I experimented with my favorite smoothie or hot cereal, but neither of them were filling enough. What would you do if you were on the phone with a customer service agent and you heard their stomach growl? Loud. Those customers were either polite or it wasn’t as obvious as I thought.
What’s interesting is that peanut butter and crackers are mainly protein and gluten-free grain…so are eggs and gluten-free toast. Pumpkin Rooibos tea from November is different because I drink iced nettle tea this time of year as nettle helps with my seasonal allergies. Most interesting to me is that I don’t need as many supplements as I used to.
Most important of all is I enjoy making and eating this meal and it keeps me full until I can relax with a smoothie (my breakfast of choice for years is now lunch every other day), or whatever my body asks for in the afternoon.
Journalling is part of the program because of insights like this – realizing that when I started checking in with my body about what I need, protein and carbs took the lead and there is healing happening as a result.

Food As Ally group support meetings are every Wednesday evening in Dallas, TX and Reiki Food As Ally (Zoom) Meetings are every Friday evening. Visit www.foodasally.com for registration and details.
Remind yourself that your body is a master healer. Say it to yourself when you feel worried or not at your best. Think about all the times your body healed on its own. Look at yourself in the mirror and empower your body with these words by saying them out loud.
These are a few suggestions. How will you bring this affirmation to life?
In Food As Ally, we focus on creating a whole, healed relationship between our food and our bodies with step-by-step guidance to make lasting changes. These weekly group support meetings are led by Gina Briganti, Certified Nutrition Consultant, and developer of the program. Each meeting is limited to three people and that week’s focus is specifically tailored to them.
Food As Ally meetings are in-person, in Dallas, Texas, from 7:00-8:00 p.m. CST at Lotus Salon Suites on Wednesdays. Zoom meetings are available for those who prefer them or who live out of the area.
The difference with Reiki Food As Ally weekly group support meetings is that Gina Briganti will lead the meeting and will send Reiki to each of the three clients to help with mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual layers. In addition to being a Certified Nutrition Consultant, Gina is also a Reiki Master Teacher/Practitioner.

Which one is right for you, Food As Ally or Reiki Food As Ally? All new clients are encouraged to schedule a free 20-minute Q&A with Gina to explore this question and to find out what they need to know before starting the program.
