Tropical Traditions Gold Coconut Oil Give Away!

Posted by on Jan 30, 2013 in Blog, Give away, Traditional Foods, Uncategorized | 52 comments

I have always loved coconut flavored foods.  So I was thrilled when I was introduced to traditional foods and discovered that this flavor I love is also really good for me! All that healthy short chain saturated fat! The other thing that I have come to appreciate since I began to focus on traditional foods is the traditional methods of making those foods.  I loved watching the video below and seeing the traditional way that coconut oil was made how it is still done for this coconut oil.  I’m also glad that I can purchase this oil that has been processed within 24 hours of the coconut being harvested instead of having to wait for the coconuts to get over here and then having to process them myself.  Coconut oil is a GAPS legal oil for cooking with too...

Saturday Sources: The Farmer’s Larder

Posted by on Jan 26, 2013 in Blog, Local Sources, St Louis | 0 comments

Well things don’t always go as you planned.  My life got so busy that this series fell by the wayside for a bit but here is another installment.   I have been purchasing meat products from The Farmer’s Larder since the first year that they were at “my” farmer’s market, Tower Grove Farmer’s Market.  I was more than a little excited when I first discovered that their kielbasa was sweetened only with honey!  That was an early product that we grew to love.  Another favorite is their smoked ham hocks.  I use them in my Savory Lentil Stew with Smoked Ham Hock Recipe.     What is The Farmer’s Larder? What do you do? We are a small family business run primarily by Anne Matoushek and son Lucian. Tom and other family members help out wherever they can. The Farmers’ Larder...

Are you looking for a nice hearty grain free bread to go along side a winter soup?  This Flax Focaccia really fits the bill.  It is well textured and dense.  It also stands up nicely to strong flavors. If you choose golden flaxseed for this recipe it will have a lighter color. I used brown seeds.  Flax is a very fibrous food and is on the full GAPS diet only.   Flax Focaccia Bread 2 C. Whole Flaxseed or Flaxseed Meal 1 tsp. Baking soda 1 tsp.

HealThy Mouth Summit Upgrade

Posted by on Jan 20, 2013 in Blog, Dental | 0 comments

I’m sure some of my readers are wondering why I’m talking so much about this Dental Summit. The fact is that your oral health impacts the health in the rest of your body. In fact is that 98% of people suffer from some sort of oral disease. So pretty much everyone reading this blog has some improvement that you can gain in this area. I knew that to be true but this past summer I got to live it when I got my cavitations cleaned out by my dentist.  I wrote several posts on the subject starting with Cavitations and my Dental Health.  Getting those dealt with had a huge impact on my health and stamina. My family could not believe how much energy I had when I visited them in August. I was like a new person.   However...
