Your Diet. Your Health

For the past several weeks we’ve had a book club of sorts discussing the book Nutrition and Physical Degeneration by Dr. Weston Price. Dr. Weston A. Price was a dentist who travelled the world in the 1930’s and studied peoples diet and how this diet corresponded with their dental and overall health.

Design a Meatloaf Burger

I love being able to stretch a pound of grass fed ground beef to feed our family like with the Gyros that I made a few weeks ago. Sometimes I can even stretch that pound into two meals like when making Navajo Tacos, casseroles, soups/stews or chili. Lately, I’ve had requests from the girls and […]

Planning Ahead

As I was waking up this morning Joe had the TV on and the first thing I heard was about how bad the economy still is and how it is predicted to get worse. We haven’t been directly affected by the economy but I know many, many have and I do think about it. […]

I was looking for a way to use fish broth and ingredients I had on hand. Internet searching found a fun site which talked about a rice porridge/soup dish called congee. I thought that sounded like a pretty good way to use the fish broth and combined some of the congee ideas to come up […]

Still Taking Baby Steps

I mentioned a few weeks ago that we have been on a quest to switch over to Whole/Traditional/Real Foods for a while and are slowly making our transitions. I’m pretty pleased with how things are coming along. In that post I mentioned that I had a few things going (sourdough starter, expecting a Kombucha Mother, […]
