Getting Over SIBO: Types, testing, treatment, diet, and more. by Chartered Wellness

SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth) can be a frustrating and often confusing condition. There are multiple options for treating it and managing the symptoms, and some may work better for you than others. In this post, I’ll be jumping into more detail about the most common treatments for SIBO, as well as the pluses and minuses of each.

Rosemary + Turmeric Spiced Nuts

Rosemary + Turmeric Spiced Nuts by Chartered Wellness

These roasted nuts actually have a ton of spices in them, but calling them “Rosemary + Turmeric + Ginger + Cumin + Cinnamon + a bunch of other spices Spiced Nuts” seemed a little aggressive.

If it’s still cold and rainy where you are, these the snack for you. They’re full of warming spices + healthy fats, and are the perfect cozy snack for a movie night.

Instant Pot Butternut Squash Chili

Instant Pot Butternut Squash Chili by Chartered Wellness

No doubt about it, it’s chili weather. While being cold is not one of my favorite things, I always welcome the opportunity to cozy up with a bowl of something warm and hearty.

This chili isn’t exactly traditional. There are no beans (which I think Texans would approve of), but there is butternut squash and cacao (which I’m pretty sure Texans would not approve of). Either way, it’s delicious.

Why Your Diet Isn’t Working by Chartered Wellness

If you’re planning your next diet and are looking to lose weight to regain your health, you aren’t alone.

These pumpkin pancakes don’t have any gluten, grains, nuts, sugar, or dairy. Wait wait wait, don’t click away! I promise they’re still delicious. They definitely hit the spot, and the pumpkin and spices make them perfect for a cozy warm breakfast. They’re also super easy to make, don’t dirty many dishes, and have just a few ingredients.

Curry-Roasted Delicata Squash

Curry-Roasted Delicata Squash by Chartered Wellness

This dish is deceptively simple. It only has a few ingredients, but the way the warming spices of the curry meld with the slight sweetness of the squash makes this dish perfectly reminiscent of fall. Plus, I absolutely love the way the slices get so crispy they’re almost like chips.

Is It Possible To Eat Healthy On A Budget?

Is It Possible To Eat Healthy On A Budget? by Chartered Wellness

I’ll be honest, eating healthy can often seem expensive. Like, realllllly expensive. It’s easy to think you can’t eat healthy unless you blow your whole paycheck at Whole Foods. Which is a total bummer, because healthy eating isn’t something that only super rich people can afford to do AND in reality you can eat healthy by shopping in your regular store within a budget that works for you. You just need a little know-how to make it work!

7 Essential Supplements For Healthy Travel

7 Essential Supplements For Healthy Travel by Chartered Wellness

Vacation is the best! Getting sick on vacation is the worst. Which is why I try to never do it.

Over the past year I’ve been experimenting with an array of key supplements to keep me in the game when I’m on the road. In that time I’ve successfully avoided getting sick during one trip to Mexico, two stays in Southeast Asia, and trips to Charleston, Portland, and Phoenix.

So far, so good.

Cucumber + Melon Salad with Cilantro and Mint by Chartered Wellness

This salad tastes like summer in a bowl. The melon and cucumber are refreshing and juicy, and the herbs give it a deliciously fresh note. With hot weather showing no signs of going away any time soon, it’s the perfect dish for when you’re too sweaty to cook anything.
