Welcome to The Metaphysical Menu!

The Metaphysical Menu is your one-stop online resource for eating:

  • Gluten-free
  • Mostly grain-free (occasional use of ancient grains or gluten-free oats, but always GF)
  • Mostly dairy-free (we at times will include raw cheeses or goat cheese, but we’ll always supply substitutes for you)
  • Soy-free
  • Corn-free
  • Refined-sugar free
  • Alcohol-free
  • Caffeine-free (except for small amounts of naturally occurring caffeine in chocolate)
  • Mostly meat-free (except for small amounts of fish and/or other ethically sourced animal products)
  • Intermittent Fasting

We believe that to have a healthy body-mind-Spirit, we must be conscious about what we put inside of our body (as well as on our body, so we’ll occasionally have skincare resources for you too!).

In fact, in order to have healthy brain function for all three brains (head, heart & gut), clear intuition, and a fulfilling life – what we put in our body matters tremendously!*

This site was born from years of my (hi, I’m Kristian Strang!) being asked to create a cookbook by clients, friends and family.

A cookbook wasn’t fully lighting me up and I didn’t know why. Then, one day during my meditation the idea for this site came in, and I instantly knew it was the best way for me to share my recipes and product recommendations.

With the Metaphysical Menu, we believe in eating one-two full meals a day, followed by one to two snacks – depending on your activity level.

Overall as a culture we eat way too much and too often. Our body needs time to relax and restore without an onslaught of food and beverages being consumed.*

We are big fans of water and drinking as much of it as possible, along with herbal teas when not eating.*

You do not have to follow this exact way of eating to benefit from these recipes and recommendations – so use them with care and in the way you are most drawn to.

Of course, our guidance here is not to replace your own medical care, see blah-blah-blah ūüėČ disclaimer below for more on that.

Some of our posts may contain affiliate links for which we may receive a commission if you choose to purchase. That allows us to create these posts for you.

Please note: I will never recommend any product unless I have tried it myself personally, and love it. That’s my guarantee to you.

I’ve been eating this way for 18 years, I try every new product that comes out as soon as I can get my hands on it. I find the best of the best in taste and quality. All of my recommendations are 1111% legit and help cut out the time/money it takes to find the best products for the best recipes.

If you would like to donate to the cause to support this work, you may do so through my mission-based organization Rising Up for Love here. 

Put “To support The Metaphysical Menu” in the notes section so we know where to apply your funds.

Thank you for being on this metaphysical, conscious eating, healthy way of living journey with us!

In Love,
XoKristian & Team

My Story Goes A Little Something Like This…

Growing up we were poor.

Like, not enough food in the house for us 5 girls and had to rely on neighbors, friends, family and government aid to eat kind of poor.

The quality of the food we ate was simply never in question.

It was always about would we eat and where would that food come from, and even more deeply, where would the money or assistance for that food come from.

Once that was answered, it was on to get as much food as we could at the lowest cost.

That meant we ate plenty of enriched wheat, full fat dairy, refined sugar galore and more.

I loved macaroni and cheese growing up (is that why it’s my first recipe here?!) but we couldn’t even afford the Kraft mac-n-cheese. We had to get the off-brand, Western Family mac-n-cheese. (Which is not at all the same, btws.)

As I grew up, I didn’t think too much about food and it’s quality.

Having grown up in food scarcity meant I was always happy to have enough money to eat (so clearly I had money issues/poverty consciousness I had to heal and I did (yaay!) through what I teach here), even when at 19 that meant living off of $700/month and eating bagels and cream cheese with “Healthy Choice” lunchmeat on top.

I’m literally gagging as I type this. I can’t believe I ate that every day for months on end!

But because we live in a benevolent Universe, life continually works to nudge us in the most aligned directions…

At age 23 and while on Paxil for depression (more on that part of my journey can be found in my vulnerable articles for publications like Elephant Journal here), I gained 25 pounds and felt horribly lethargic.

The breaking point was laying on my bed trying to get my favorite pair of jeans on and realizing they weren’t going to fit.

Something was not right with my body, but I wasn’t sure what exactly…

Thankfully, a friend (there are literally Angels everywhere!) recommended I read “Eat Right for Your Blood Type”.

Turns out I’m the blood type that should not eat wheat.
(I now believe no one is served by eating wheat, but that’s an investigation you must go on yourself if you’re called.)

3 weeks upon cutting all wheat and most dairy out, I lost all 25 pounds, got off the Paxil and became more conscious about what I was putting into my body.

Six years later after cutting out dairy entirely along with most refined sugars, I began the Eat Wheat-Free, Dairy-Free and Low Sugar blog. The blog was one of the first of its kind and was fairly successful. It was fun, but I didn’t think too much about it.

My writing path transformed into a spiritual awakening and healing path and that blog got left in the dust.

I went on to spend the past 11 years healing and supporting others (mostly women and couples) through success coaching, Advanced PaRama BodyTalk healing, spiritual counseling, and spiritual and Love mentorship. See more here.

Time and again I would be asked for recipes or for guidance around how to eat high-vibrationally, consciously and deliciously. Many of the folks I worked with who had diagnosis of cancer and autoimmune diseases would ask for dietary guidance or recommendations.

I would give recommendations as I was guided, but I typically would do nothing more than brush it off as my “old” path and then move on, not giving it much thought.

Well, life continually brings us full circle, particularly when it’s something we’re truly here to do.

In the past year, I’ve had more people than I can count tell me to write a cookbook – seemingly out of nowhere, and I’ve even had people come to me to share that they’ve had dreams about me writing a cookbook.

What?!

For Goddess sake, I suppose I should actually do it, eh?!

For whatever reason, writing the cookbook itself felt off. As the author of eight books, usually when I know it’s time to write, I get to writing without interruption. But something about this was different and I wasn’t sure why.

Finally, in meditation – the clarity came – The Metaphysical Menu – and it was this site here with simple photos, easy recipes, product recommends, supplement recommends, etc.

The Metaphysical Menu is a combination of intermittent fasting and eating a super conscious, healthy diet based on my own personal experience as well as in working with women and couples worldwide on the topics of life success, spiritual embodiment and health & wellness.

I’m thrilled to be able to bring it to you and I can’t wait to see where it takes us! Xo
