Best Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

However good other cookies may be, there’s something about the classic Chocolate Chip cookie that makes it stand out from all the rest. It’s golden crispy crunchiness and gooey chocolate interior with milk is practically heaven. Normally, these cookies are loaded with sugar, gluten, and different vegetable shortenings that can be detrimental to your health. There is good news! Then this recipe for the Best Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies will let you still enjoy this dessert without compromising on eating well.

Why Paleo?

You may have noticed that a large majority of the recipes I use and post are paleo. If you are wondering why, the answer is pretty easy… I am paleo! This means that my diet looks like: fruits, vegetables, lean meats, fish, eggs, nuts and seeds. Essentially, this diet is based off of the foods that people in the past could get by hunting and gathering. It does not include: grains, legumes and dairy products. This means that paleo is Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free. Even if you are not paleo, cutting out gluten and dairy are not a bad idea… here’s why: Food Sensitivities.

Food Sensitivities

A food sensitivity happens when a food triggers a negative reaction in the immune system. These reactions involve different parts of the immune system and the negative effects are experienced in many ways. This is why one patient may have their joint pain go away after eliminating an offending food, while another patient’s intestinal issues clear up. What kind of negative immune reaction, and what effect that reaction will have, is greatly influenced by genetics and what kinds of problems a person is dealing with.

A Food Sensitivity can cause:

If you have the symptoms mentioned above and want real results, then I highly recommend getting a Food Sensitivity test. The kit tests for 141 foods and 29 chemical compounds. It’s a straightforward package that gets mailed to your house. Then, all you have to do is take it to one of our recommended blood draw sites. After that, you usually get the results back in a week!

You can call the office at (602) 864-0304 to ask questions or order a Food Sensitivity test kit, you don’t have to be a patient! The test costs $695, and you will receive printed results along with digital ones sent to you via email, accompanied by a video from Dr. Kilcup explaining how to follow the diet. If you do want to become a patient or want to know about Functional Medicine, contact me.

I have been using the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for the last few weeks and It has helped me so much. I struggle quite a bit with work related stress. When I'm in the chamber I feel completely relaxed, so much so that I can bring my laptop inside and work without stressing. The calmness I feel in the chamber lasts for the remainder of the day as well. I have found too, the more consistent I am with sessions throughout the week the better I feel. The office staff seems well trained in running the tanks too, so I feel safe. I see Dr. Kilcup as well for my brain and gut health. Until now, I don't think I've ever known what "normal" or "healthy" feels like. Thank you all, sincerely!

Darrell is highly knowledgeable and really gets to the root of the problem. Unlike a lot of doctors, Darrell doesn't just throw prescriptions at issues. He will test and test - digging for the cause and then working on fixing the issue. He and his staff are professional, courteous, and a joy to be around.

I am very grateful to have found Dr. Kilcup and be his patient for the last couple of years. He has helped me restore my health back after being exposed to toxic mold for years. He helped identify and treat all of my symptoms I was experiencing and address the root problem. I was looking for the right person who could help me heal with natural therapies and supplements and Dr. Kilcup was the perfect fit. Every appointment and session was necessary and one step towards all the progress I made. Dr. Kilcup is a great functional medicine doctor who was also an advocate for my own health and well-being. I never received any care or attention to detail from other Doctors in past experiences except with Dr. Kilcup. Anyone who is seeking a holistic path towards healing or improving their own health should see him.
