As many of you know, May is Celiac Awareness Month. I want to thank the entire Celiac Community and our allies for the tremendous amount of love, support and strength you have all shown each other and myself.  Every one out there fighting to take back their health and their lives and spreading the awareness of this disease is a true hero. It’s the every day heroes like YOU that keep me going!

Before I share my recipe with you, I want to briefly talk about a MAJOR and relevant topic here… INFLAMMATION.

Inflammation, what can I say but I HATE YOU.  Inflammation is the major cause for disease in the body.  Not only in the sense of disease as we know it but also DIS-EASE in the body.  Aches, pains, headaches, joint pain, bloating= inflammation. Chronic inflammation, causes damage over time to organ systems like the heart, brain, kidneys and, you guessed it, THE GUT. The presence of inflammation is what makes most disease occur in an individual. It can and often does occur for years before it exists at levels that are apparent or clinically significant. The good news is that certain foods can help reduce inflammation levels and even prevent future flare-ups!

I am thrilled to present to you one of my personal FAVORITE anti inflammatory recipes…


Mega Anti Inflammatory Healing Soothing Soup:

1 Sweet Potato

1 Clove Garlic

1 TBSP Coconut Oil

1/4 TSP fresh Grated Ginger

1/4 TSP Ground Turmeric

1/4 TSP Ground Cloves

1/4 TSP Ground Black Pepper

1 TBSP Olive Oil

Himalayan Salt to taste



Place coconut oil in pot and let melt

Place garlic, cloves, turmeric, ginger, pepper and salt in pot and sauté with oil

After all is mixed together and flavors melting together add (peeled, cleaned and cut in chunks) sweet potato

Mix sweet potato around with spices and coconut oil for a minute or two

Then add just enough water to cover (remember you can always add more water later if soup is too thick for you.)

Let cook covered until you can easily put fork through potatoes.

When finished place all ingredients from pot in a Vitamix or other strong blender and combine.  Start on low speed,  then bring up speed gradually as you add the remaining olive oil in a slow steady stream.

    My first time to comment, my first step today to maybe find answers about my health issues. These recipes look like something I might be able to make without messing them up, thank you for all the information I am reading. Just started reading the book, Jennifer’s Way, found all this by accident, but I think it was God guiding me.

    Your recipes sound delicious. Thank you. I’ve suffered with digestive problems my whole life. Thank you for all the information. I started using your recipes and they are delicious and my stomach problems seem to disappear.

    I saw your story this weekend and it spoke to me. I have been a big fan of yours but never knew you struggled with something that sounds a lot like what I have been dealing with. I never have been officially diagnosed but every time I eat Gluten I get hit with all kinds of weird symptoms that make me feel like my body is going to shutdown. I get dizziness, bloating, major anxiety feeling (tight chest, faint feeling, palpitations, hard breathing etc.) tingling, hot flashes, etc. My wife was reading on gluten intolerance/celiac and realized a lot of my symptoms were mentioned. I have been to different doctors and nobody really knew what was wrong. I went to a cardiologist a few times thinking it was a heart related problem but instead was told I had a autonomic nervous system issue. It made no sense. I since went Gluten Free and have felt much better. I still struggle with contamination from time to time to that take me backwards and back into symptom land. I am scared to go to another doctor and not be diagnosed but charged a lot of money instead. What should I do? What type of Doctor finally diagnosed you? I would like to get tested and see what other foods I may be allergic to but don’t know where to go. I know you are very busy but any advice would be greatly appreciated. God Bless.

      I recommend that you really eat healthy, go for walks. Make sure your 90 minerals are being taken everyday. Drink alkaline water and take amino acids as well as vitamins special focused on Iron, and Vitamin D make sure it is all plant based and gluten free. I follow an alkaline diet and it works so well. Good luck, Doctors are a complete waist about this , excuse me for speaking so bluntly they literally have said there is NO medication for this only remedies.

      Carlos, The best thing I ever did was to read Jennifer’s book. I just finished it and I thank God that I found it at this point in time. I was getting pretty discouraged and her story and journey to health have given me hope. I bought the book on my Kindle but I’m ordering a hard copy so I can refer to it often.

    I was just recently diagnosed through blood work & endoscopy. I found a lot of celiac books & God led me to read yours. I am almost finished & want to tell you what an inspiration you are & it is so amazing how many people you are helping. This will probably be the only celiac book I will read unless you write another one. I hope to order some of your baked goods in the near future. As of today I am following you on FB. & signed up for your blog. You are, without a doubt , an Earth Angel!!!
