Planning Your Perfect, Hot Summer Wedding on a Budget – Enjoy Simple, Locally Available Food

If you’re going to get married in the summer, you might as well enjoy the bounty that summer offers. Wherever you live, there are great local foods available for your wedding feast. Enjoy the best your region has to offer.

Imagine how gorgeous a buffet might be with simple platters of grilled meats or fish and marinated vegetables and big bowls of field greens. Enjoy tables with plates sliced tomatoes to pass and jugs of hand-pressed lemonade. Summer succulence makes your mouth water.  If nothing but the meat is hot, the whole dinner can be more relaxed.

What makes sense about local foods?

  • If foods are in season, they’ll be cheaper.
  • If foods are in season, they’ll be in plentiful supply.
  • If foods are in season, they don’t need to be trucked anywhere.
  • If foods are in season, you’re supporting your local farmers, so there will be more great foods next year!
  • If foods are in season, they’ll taste exactly the way that food stuff is supposed to taste.
  • If foods are in season, they can be eaten simply, in a style that merely enhances their flavor. That lowers on time and money for food prep.

It’s too easy to get caught in the elegance trap and miss the pleasures of the simple and perfectly ripe. Nothing improves on a ripe tomato. It’s not that complexity is wrong. But it actually may be more of a winter concept. Summer is about the sun and all it reveals. You want cooling meals that taste fabulous just as they are. The more you simplify the meal and provide wonderful ingredients, the better your summer meal will become.

This also offers a great metaphor to be celebrated in your wedding ceremony and maybe even your wedding vows. It’s important in marriage to explore the simple and the complex. Share a ripe peach during your wedding ceremony as a symbol of your overwhelming love for one another. Then forget cake and serve your guests from great bowls of sliced peaches accompanied with mounds of freshly whipped cream. Every peach everyone eats after that will remind them of your wedding and your marriage. You want your community wishing you well. And you want reminders that tie you back to your wedding day.

Gluten Free Diet & Introducing Foods

Begin introducing one food at a time, and then wait a few days to introduce the next food. Eat a large portion of the new food all by itself, preferably during lunch. Wait a few hours and see if there is an immediate reaction. If you don’t have a reaction, then try eating some more of the new food at dinner along with allowed foods.

Some other general tips for your new way of eating:

Avoid overeating. Your digestive enzymes are essential in processing the food that you eat. When you stuff yourself, you overwhelm your digestive enzymes before you are finished.

Don’t eat too much of one particular food in one sitting. Different enzymes are used to digest different foods. When you too much of one food at a meal, you will overwhelm the enzymes that digest that food.

Even if you find that sugar is not an allergen, it is best to avoid it. Refined sugar depletes minerals and digestive enzymes. Deserts made of unrefined sugar, fruits or sweet vegetables (like sweet potatoes) are much better choices.

Focus on raw foods! Foods like fruits, vegetables and raw milk cheese are full of helpful digestive enzymes. These enzymes can be destroyed during the cooking process.

Strengthen your body’s immune system by using super foods, herbs, supplements and adequate rest. Keeping your immune system in good condition will help you fend off any potential allergens.

Suggested supplements to support your new way of eating:

Multivitamins and minerals. Look for a good broad spectrum multivitamin that has minerals to support digestion.

Hydrochloric Acid (with pepsin). As your body ages, it produces less HCL and pepsin (both are necessary for digestion).

Digestive enzymes. Take an enzyme capsule after meals to support digestion.

Vitamin B complex. This reduces stress and restores muscle tone in your digestive track.

Beta carotene and vitamin C with bioflavonoids. These antioxidants will help build your immunity

Essential fatty acids. Flax oil and primrose oil both boost prostaglandin levels, which help your body deal with inflammations due to allergic reactions.

Quercetin. This natural antihistamine can relieve reactions to certain foods.

Siberian ginseng. Helps your body fight stress and builds your immune system.

Glutamine. This is an amino acid that you should take between meals.

Probiotics. Acidophilus and bifidus both help restore friendly bacteria into your body’s digestive system.

Aloe vera juice. If you’ve have hidden allergies for a long time, you may be suffering from a condition called leaky gut syndrome.

However, if you discover a food to be safe, you must be careful with how often you eat it in the future. Just to be safe, you should eat it once a day at most, and then only every four days once you’ve built up your list of “safe foods.” And you will be one step closer to a gluten free diet and a healthier lifestyle.

It is important to understand where you are and where you want to be, especially when it comes to losing weight and following the gluten free diet. To learn more about what you can start doing today, visit Diana Walker’s Blog post on Five Reasons To Eat A Gluten Free Diet.
