Adrenal Fatigue: How can I know for sure?

Posted by on Mar 26, 2012 in Adrenal, Blog | 14 comments

If you haven’t had a chance to read my blog post on Adrenal Fatigue yet go back and read that first. Adrenal Fatigue – The Silent Epidemic   Disclaimer: I am not a healthcare professional.  I am sharing what I have learned but you need to make your own decisions about your own health care.  Consult with a health care professional that you trust for guidance in any changes that you are interested in making. I’m going to remind you of the list I shared in the last post of symptoms of Adrenal Fatigue.  This is not an exhaustive list and you only need one symptom from it to suspect adrenal fatigue.  Obviously the more symptoms you have the more likely it is. Being tired all the time no matter how much sleep you get. Trouble getting up in...

Tongue Tie Photos

Posted by on Mar 25, 2012 in Tongue tie | 3 comments

I have been asked for some photos of my children’s tongue ties and also of my husbands tongue tie correction.  In case you haven’t had a chance to read my post on Tongue Tie you can find it here. First I’ll start with my 4 year old’s tongue.  I’m sorry there appears to be some food on her face and tongue in these photos.  Her tongue does have a tip to it but she can’t come close to reaching the roof of her mouth and you can see a slight indent in the center.  When she was a newborn it was more obviously heart shaped.  I wish I would have pursued getting it clipped then, but perhaps if I had the posterior portion would have been ignored and we wouldn’t have been able to identify that issue in her...

Zucchini Noodles

Posted by on Mar 24, 2012 in GAPS, Kids, Low Oxalate, Recipe | 9 comments

One of the hardest things to give up when you go on a grain free diet is pasta.  It is such a big part of our American diet and features prominently in our favorite comfort foods.  Breaking the Vicious Cycle describes making noodles from zucchini using a vegetable peeler and I have done that many times.  They end up a bit like egg noodles in proportions and that works for some dishes but it is still a big compromise we have found.  I find that sort of noodle to work best in a “noodle soup” sort of application. I don’t remember when I first heard about spiralizers but I think I hadn’t been on GAPS for very long.  I decided early on that it was just one more expense that we were going to avoid and didn’t really need anyhow.  After being on GAPS...

Beef Short Ribs Teriyaki style

Posted by on Mar 22, 2012 in GAPS, Low Oxalate, Recipe, Traditional Foods | 1 comment

This is an adaptation of a recipe from The Grassfed Gourmet Cookbook.  (are you sick of hearing how much I love this cookbook yet?)  It didn’t take much to make it GAPS legal.  I did not grow up eating ribs so I have relied on cookbooks to teach me the techniques.  They are a tasty addition to our menu and the girls always adore them, in part because eating ribs is just so fun!  You get a nice big bone to hold onto and gnaw off the meat and feel like a cave kid for a little while. There were lots of exclamations of happiness when I announced that this was for dinner. I hope that you and yours love it too.   Beef Short Ribs Teriyaki Style 4 lbs beef short ribs 1 cup Coconut Aminos 4 tsp Ground Ginger 1/4 cup...
