What a year 2012 has been. I have been taking some time lately to reflect back over the year. The good and the bad, the victories and the defeats. As I look over this year I think about how sick, weak and hopeless I was in the spring. Then I think about how getting my cavitaitons dealt with has been a turning point in my health journey. Learning about anaerobic fermentation and Pickl-It jars has also been a big change for the better this year. 2012 was my first full year as a blogger as well. I have learned and grown so much this year! I started with just a handful of friends and family reading me on blogger. Now I have a self hosted blog with more than 2000 followers on Facebook and hundreds getting my posts in...

Guest Post: White Chocolate Peppermint Truffles

Posted by on Dec 29, 2012 in essential oils, GAPS, Holiday Foods, Low Oxalate, photo, Recipe | 3 comments

 It is a pleasure to have another guest post from my friend Starlene. Starlene blogs at GAPS Diet Journey where she chronicles her journey on the GAPS Diet and creates GAPS Friendly recipes. She also has recently released her first book, Beyond Grain and Dairy.  This is a cook book filled with dairy free, GAPS approved recipes for everything from appetizers to deserts.    ~PattyLA   My original goal in creating this treat was to create a white chocolate version of my Chocolate Coconut Fudge Bites. Then I wondered if I could make it low oxalate as well. My curiosity was piqued recently when I read a blog post at Roo’s Clues which talked about how oxalates “…injure and kill the mitochondria” and it made me wonder if I should look more closely at avoiding oxalates. Patty has written a very informative post called What Are...

White Chocolate Filled Holiday Cookies

Posted by on Dec 22, 2012 in GAPS, Kids, Low Oxalate, Recipe | 0 comments

My older daughter has been on a gluten free diet since she was 2 and grain free most of that time.  My younger daughter has been grain free her entire life.  While they think certain treat foods look tasty they have no experience with them and so they don’t really long for old favorites for me to emulate.  That is a nice relief in many ways since it means I don’t have to try to emulate something impossible with our limited diet. It also means that my recipes don’t have those inspired names from other cultures and times long past like Snickerdoodles or Grasshoppers.     This year my older daughter was inspired to make our cut out cookies and layer them with some sort of filling.  We talked several options over and settled on white chocolate for the...
