Have you ever wondered which foods don’t react well with your body? Elimination diets and intuitive eating have become a very popular way to address food sensitivities and figure out which foods make you feel your best! I am a huge fan of elimination diets for SO many reasons besides just figuring out your food intolerances (though that is definitely a huge reason). However, for many people these diets are too restrictive for day-to-day life and confusing without someone helping you along the way. That’s where a blood test, like the Food Sensitivity Pinner Test comes in!
The Pinner Test allows you to take a super simple test at home with just a finger prick. It tests you for sensitivities to 200 foods and sends you your results within a week. This is awesome because you don’t have to go to the doctor, a blood draw center, or get a lot of blood drawn. They literally ship the box to your door, you prick your finger, put the test back in the box it comes with, and send it back on it’s way! That simple! As you can see in the photos below.
Everyone’s bodies are so uniquely different, so you may have a food sensitivity for something like anchovies, if you’re me, which you wouldn’t even think about! The top allergenic foods aren’t the only ones that can be causing issues, and this test lets you see that, without having to eliminate and reintroduce hundreds of foods. I have done elimination diets and am very intuitive with how my body feels, but wouldn’t have expected that I was sensitive to anchovies, pinto beans, almonds, poppy seeds, or cashews. I am lucky to not have many food sensitivities, but they are foods I wouldn’t necessarily eliminate for a super long period of time (I do think nuts and beans can be problematic-not just peanuts, but I was still surprised to find these were sensitivities for me). Having facts as to which foods do and do not cause a reaction also allows me to feel more at ease about the foods that I do choose to consume.
I don’t always feel fabulous when I have certain nuts, beans, and grains, but now I know that I don’t have a severe sensitivity to them. At least, not a permanent one. The Food Sensitivity Pinner Test, tests for permanent food sensitivities. We may develop sensitivities over time by over-consuming certain foods or through issues such as leaky gut, which is also known as intestinal permeability. These sensitivities can be helped by healing the gut. This is why I still love anti-inflammatory diets and elimination protocols because they give your body a break and allow your gut to heal, at least the way I conduct them. You can find more about that here and/or purchase my anti-inflammatory guide!

My Pinner Test Results
After eliminating the foods that showed up as problematic on my Pinner Test results, I have definitely noticed less bloating and gas. I have also felt like I have had more energy and have just noticed some slight differences all around. I am interested to try re-introducing some of these foods to see if I notice a reaction/difference over a 36 hour period!
If you have any questions, please ask away, I’d love to answer anything that I left out and help you make your decision. I think knowledge is power, so I want you to have the knowledge and power to feel your best!
A lot of people have asked me if I TRULY believe the Pinner Test is great, so I wanted to address this! I would never promote a product that I didn’t believe in. Food sensitivity tests in general, are subject to inaccuracy, which can mean false positives or false negatives. I like that the Pinner Test is so accessible to everyone, because it is cheaper than most food sensitivity tests and you can take it at home. There are other tests that are more comprehensive because they test IgG and IgE reactions, whereas the pinner test just tests for IgG reactions, which shows food sensitivities. More comprehensive tests are more expensive and still may not provide complete results or be more accurate! So, always, do your own research and decide what is best for you!
