Ever since I was really young I suffered from bad digestion, fatigue and psoriasis. Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease that shows up in the form of dry, itchy patches on the skin and scalp. It’s really uncomfortable, embarrassing and it made me self-conscious growing up. It wasn’t until my 20s that I learned there was a link between what I ate, my energy levels and skin breakouts.

Over the last 5 years or so I’ve changed my diet to focus on nutrient rich foods, heavy in veggies (green smoothies galore) and reducing foods that cause me problems (dairy, bread, alcohol). I started making fermented foods like coconut water kefir and milk kefir about four years ago, and over the last year I started making sauerkraut and various pickled vegetables and kombucha. Adding these foods to my diet has contributed to improving my energy and managing psoriasis.
