Allergy Free, Gluten Free, Dairy Free carrot muffins

Healthy Carrot Muffins – Allergy Free, Gluten Free, Dairy Free

Since spring is here that means it’s the perfect time for carrot muffins. They’re warm, fluffy and have the perfect amount of sweet and spicy goodness. Muffins make the most convenient snack and are great for a breakfast on the go.

If you’re wondering how to make a healthy gluten free flour mix then try reading this post. It breaks down how to make a healthy gluten free flour mix yourself. Making it yourself will save you money and it’s often healthier!

Carrots contain vitamin C, fibre and vitamin A which means they’re good for your immune system, belly and eye sight. You’ll never know that these muffins are full of them!

Cinnamon is packed with anti-inflammatory antioxidants! Its anti-inflammatory properties are so strong that studies have shown that it can help relieve muscle soreness, PMS pains, and other age-related symptoms of pain. Make sure when you’re buying cinnamon to get Ceylon cinnamon as it has more health benefits.

  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt

About Elizabeth, Holistic Nutritionist

In 2006, when Elizabeth was 15, she developed digestive symptoms after a case of food poisoning while vacationing in Tampa Bay – a hot dog eaten during triple overtime.

For six more years, her health continued to decline, she lost weight and suffered from severe fatigue, anemia, nausea, vomiting, bloating, fainting spells, joint pain and hair loss. At that point, she was finally diagnosed with celiac disease.

In 2014, while her health improved on a gluten-free diet,  her diet of gluten-free processed cookies, pizzas and cakes wasn’t helping her health.

She continued to suffer with many of the same symptoms. After a bad viral infection that lead to viral encephalitis, she was also diagnosed with reactive arthritis. Elizabeth still struggles with ongoing nerve damage and pain on the right side of her body.

Elizabeth decided she had to get serious about restoring her health. She improved her diet, changed her mindset and enrolled in a Holistic Nutrition Diploma program. She discovered first hand how to provide her body with the nourishment it needed and her mind;  positive thoughts. It  transformed her life.

In 2016, Elizabeth graduated with a Diploma in Holistic Nutrition, established Nutritiously Well and started helping others!
