Hello and welcome to my blog!
I'm Bea Caillet, HHC, CGP and creator of the blog Go Healthy With Bea.
I'm the Recipe Creator, Food Photographer, Holistic Health Coach, Certified Gluten-Free Practitioner, Certified Autoimmune Holistic Nutrition Specialist and autoimmune disease warrior behind Go Healthy With Bea.
I’m a French woman who has been living with an autoimmune disease since the age of 8 (only to be diagnosed at 25).
After almost 11 years of taking a lot of strong painkillers I decided to try healing myself naturally. A little less than 2 years after changing my diet, I was medication free.
But along the way, I also learnt that diet alone is not enough. Healing naturally an autoimmune disease is much more than just diet.
That’s why in January 2020, I started Go Healthy With Bea in order to share natural healing tips and easy and delicious gluten-free recipes.
Go healthy with bea
Go Healthy With Bea is a food and holistic health blog dedicated to easy and delicious recipes and natural healing tips.
All recipes featured on this blog are gluten-free - many of which are also dairy free, egg free, paleo, whole 30 or AIP (Auto-Immune Protocol).
What is the purpose of this blog?
Sharing my gluten free recipes with you
You won’t find on this blog any indication on what you should be eating. Because everyone is different.
My goal here is to show you that you can have a gluten-dairy-egg-whatever-free diet without being miserable and frustrated.
As a real food lover (yes all clichés on French people loving their baguette or cheese or pastries are completely true when it comes to me LOL), with a passion for cooking, I decided that going gluten-egg-cow dairy free wouldn't keep me from enjoying my meals.
Enjoying your meals is absolutely essential. If you don't enjoy your meals or feel frustrated with your free-from-food, you won't be able to keep up the distance. You will fall off the wagon from this "diet" probably even before seeing the results.
But most importantly, if you don't enjoy your food, in the end you might "get the blues". Or you might even feel depressed (believe me I've been there!).
And if your mind is not feeling well, your body won't. That's the reason why I want to share my recipes with you.
Sharing my healthy lifestyle tips and tricks
Holistic health is about much more than just diet alone.
That's why I'm also sharing with you some healthy lifestyle tips.
- I was born in Paris, France and have lived here (almost) my entire life.
- As a child I spent most of my (wonderful) vacation on a farm. So, although I am a real Parisian, I know my way around the countryside.
- My favorite aunt has been living in California for almost 40 years. Reason why I have spent many summers in the US when I was a teenager and still go there to visit.
- I grew up in a family of foodies. My father used to work in the food and feed industry. As an ingredient expert he taught me at a very young age how to select the best quality products. My mother cooked everything from scratch at home.
I've been diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis in February 2007.
I'm an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, a Certified Gluten-Free Practitioner, a Certified Autoimmune Holistic Nutrition Specialist and I got a Certificate in Plant-based Patisserie at Le Cordon Bleu London online school. Note that I'm only talking about the education that is relevant to this blog. I also have many other diplomas that I passed for my previous work life.
Thank you for your interest. Yes of course, I'm offering 1:1 health coaching.
I have written a complete article on the kitchen tools I use regularly and explain why I love them. You can read all of this in my Gift guide for healthy eaters.
Yes! If you are coming to Paris and interested in a customized, private gluten-free food tour contact me at [email protected]
Yes I have. You can find all my appearances listed on my page Bea in the news.
I speak 3 languages: French, English and Spanish. French is my native language. I learnt English and Spanish at school, traveling and watching tv.
My favorite recipes
I have to admit that it was hard to pick just a few favorites of mine because I love all my recipes (otherwise, I wouldn't publish them). But these are the ones I make most often.
