Spelt Pasta with Fresh Herb Pesto and Figs ✨ Happy Friday everyone! I just wanted to give you a short update on my @pinnertestusa results. I got a few questions after posting the results of my food intolerance test and I thought I'd answer the most common one here and now 😊 Some of you asked me if I did already feel the positive effects of eliminating nightshades. My body has the strongest (negative) reaction to potatoes and eggplant so I'm currently focusing on these two. Eggplant is easy but potatoes is more difficult than expected. So the answer is, yes and no. Yes, I do feel better sometimes but there are some setbacks. Just a few days ago I had an episode of inflamed skin and stomach issues again. I was sure that I didn't eat any nightshades so I couldn't explain it at first. When I thought about it the only thing I could that came to my mind were the new vitamins and adaptogens I had only very recently started taking. I didn't see any potato starch on the ingredient lists but 3 out of 4 listed something called maltodextrin. One Google search later and I knew that this was made from rice, corn or potato starch. Duhhhh! And I even bought the more expansive brands but maltodextrin is used as a filler to fill the capsules. Well, my mum will be happy about some new vitamins and adaptogens 🙈😄 . . . . . . . #lifeandthyme #eattheworld #foodandwine #cntravelereats #simplepleasures #makeitdelicious #vzcomade #smallthings #gatheringslikethese #hautecuisines #kinfolklife #inspiremyinstagram #untoldvisuals #appetitejournal #tablesituation #beautifulcuisines #thelifestylecollective #thehappynow #mycommontable #simplethingsmadebeautiful #thatsdarling #huffposttaste #myopenkitchen #myeverydaymagic #gatheredstyle #heresmyfood #f52grams
