February 27, 2014

Taking out time to relax and unwind may seem frivolous these days. Society tells us to keep going, stay moving, keep eating, but it’s not healthy to constantly work. We need to take time to relax and rejuvenate. I struggle with this idea and I imagine many of you do, too. Lately, I’ve been actively […]

How to Get Your Child to Eat More Vegetables

February 17, 2014

We made the switch to unprocessed foods when my daughters were two and three years old. I made slow and steady changes to our diets, but I encountered some resistance from the girls – they weren’t used to so many vegetables and unprocessed foods. Discouraged at first, I came across a study which found that […]

The Perfect Fudgy Brownie (Grain-Free, Paleo, Gluten Free)

February 6, 2014

Sometimes you want a crumbly, cake-like bar and sometimes you crave a dense, fudgy brownie. If I’m going to eat some chocolate, I want the flavor to knock me between the eyes. Do you know what I mean? For over a year, I played with different brownie recipes, hoping to find “the one.” Mission accomplished. No […]

Cobb Salad

We’re excited to watch the Super Bowl this Sunday – go Broncos! I’m making some of the family game-day favorites, but I think I’ll throw a hearty salad into the mix, too.

Our local schools are closed for two snow days. Snow, here on the gulf coast of Florida! I know many of you have major winter storms in your forecast and you might think us silly for canceling school due to icy roads, but all the kids are elated, keeping watch out the windows for flakes […]

Zucchini Noodles with Bacon, Brussels Sprouts and Hazelnuts

January 16, 2014

I recently started experimenting with some old-favorite pasta dishes, replacing the pasta with zucchini noodles. I discovered something wonderful: as long as I let the zucchini sit with some sea salt to pull out the bitter flavor and toss it quickly at the end of the recipe, it makes for a fantastic substitute. I pulled […]

How to Remove Gallstones Naturally

January 9, 2014

A few years ago when I was struggling with severe symptoms of Hashimoto’s disease I also began having pain in my right flank area. After a few tests, my doctor concluded I had gallstones and advised me to have my gall bladder removed. At that time I was in so much physical pain from the chronic […]

Thick, Homemade Yogurt (with Dairy-Free Option)

January 7, 2014

I enjoy making homemade yogurt, but for years my version wasn’t as thick as the store-bought variety. So I experimented and found that adding a bit of grass-fed gelatin to the warm milk makes the yogurt thick and creamy. I tested this recipe with coconut milk and fresh unpasteurized milk; both methods worked perfectly. While I […]
