Harvest Your Health eBook Bundle GAPS and LOD Friendly eBooks!

Posted by on Oct 7, 2013 in Blog, GAPS, Low Oxalate, Nutrition, Recipe, Sale | 2 comments

This week only there is a pretty incredible bundle of over 70 ebooks for only $37. These books are worth over $1000 if purchased individually but these authors want to get more of these books into the hands of readers and so they are willing to let them go for a fraction of what they are worth. Less than 50 cents a book. Of course you won’t want every book in this bundle, nor will you be able to read every book in this bundle but that doesn’t matter. Even if you only want and use a fraction of the books in this bundle and even if you already have some of these books you will have gotten more than your money’s worth. I had the chance to look through each of these books. With more than 70 titles...

Lacto-fermented Bread and Butter Pickles

Posted by on Aug 28, 2013 in Blog, Lacto-Fermentation, photo, Recipe | 10 comments

These are among the favorite ferments of my children and me. These pickles are a mild sweet flavor that is refreshing and easy on the palate for those who are reluctant to eat the more sour or spicy fermented foods.  We can’t decide if we like the onions or the cucumbers better. I may just do this ferment this winter just using onions to get the flavor when pickling cukes are no where to be found. I made up my first batch of the summer the other day and my girls kept asking when they would be ready to taste. One thing that I really appreciate about these pickles is that they are done so quickly!  No waiting weeks like I have to for dill pickles or months like I do for sauerkraut. You can start eating these within...

Real Food Book Bundle ~ GAPS Friendly And a Give Away Worth Over $325!

Posted by on Jul 15, 2013 in Blog, GAPS, Kids, photo, Recipe, Sale | 0 comments

Nourished Living Network’s July eBook bundle theme is Real Food!   Welcome to the monthly eBooks Bundle featuring eBooks authored by members of the Nourished Living Network. Each month, we feature a themed bundle of informative eBooks at a reduced price. Since I know that many of my readers are specifically interested in GAPS books, 2 of these books were written with GAPS in mind. Those two books together retail for $28.92 so it is like getting them for half price. The rest of the books aren’t GAPS specific but they will have recipes and ideas that apply in a GAPS kitchen. I also know that many of my readers are not on GAPS at this point in time. All of these books have healthy choices for your family no matter what dietary principles you follow.

The Best Cast Iron Seasoning Method!

Posted by on Jul 11, 2013 in Blog, photo, Traditional Foods | 44 comments

  A few years ago I ran across this special kind of cast iron seasoning. I was fairly happy until that point with my cast iron but I’m always looking to improve things. Plus this method promised that I could keep my pans clean, without a film of grease on them. I was convinced to give it a try. I used this method 2 years ago on 4 frying pans and have been thrilled with the result ever since. Those pans had been in use for several years and had been seasoned several times in those years using various methods. Nothing lasted as well as this one has lasted. Unless I do some damage to these pans I assume I’ll never have to season them again. At minimum they have a great non-stick surface and are very low maintenance....

Guest Post: Strawberry Lemonade Popsicles

Posted by on Jun 21, 2013 in Blog, GAPS, Kids, Low Oxalate, photo, Recipe | 0 comments

Today I have a guest post from Starlene of GAPS Diet Journey. Starlene and I have been on GAPS for about the same amount of time and have become friends. She has a fantastic book full of GAPS legal recipes called Beyond Grain and Dairy as well as a book about Baking with Coconut Flour and her newest book of deserts called Everybody Loves Pudding. Not only are all of her recipes grain free and GAPS legal but they are also all diary free as well. I’m sure you will love this simple and festive looking recipe. I have not calculated the oxalate content for each popsicle but the only ingredient to be worried about at all is the Strawberries. Since they are just a small part of this small treat my estimation is that each of these popsicles is quite...

Guest Post: 3 Shortcuts to Making Bone Broth

Posted by on Jun 19, 2013 in Blog, photo, Recipe | 2 comments

Today’s Guest post is from KerryAnn of Cooking Traditional Foods. As you know broth is a pretty important subject around here. I love it so much that I wrote a book about it! Broth: Elixir of Life.  KerryAnn spends time today explaining the pros and cons of 3 broth making methods that can help you to always have broth on hand in your kitchen. Since it is summer my current favorite method is with my 10 qt pressure cooker since it is done so quickly and doesn’t heat up the kitchen.

Quick and Easy Sage Sausage Scramble

Posted by on Jun 11, 2013 in Blog, GAPS, Kids, Low Oxalate, photo, Recipe | 2 comments

This quick and easy recipe can be used in all stages of GAPS. It can be used on intro stage 1 if you leave out the sage and use enough broth so that the meat doesn’t brown and stays soupy.  I like to make this from ground chicken to mix up the meats that we are eating for breakfast but really any ground meat will work. I often forget to thaw my ground chicken and this cooks just fine from frozen although it takes a bit longer. This is also an excellent way to sneak some veggies and broth into family members who are reluctant to eat them for breakfast. If your family will balk at seeing bits of veggies in their sausage puree up the squash and broth and carefully mix it with the ground meat before cooking (use...

Savory Wilted Lettuce Salad

Posted by on Jun 7, 2013 in Blog, GAPS, Kids, Low Oxalate, photo, Recipe, Traditional Foods | 2 comments

    We love our wilted lettuce salad but I don’t always have bacon on hand for my bacon version of it. I decided to try to make it with some different super foods and I think this one came out great!  It can even be vegetarian if you use water or veggie broth.  Greens like lettuce are in abundance this spring so it is the perfect time to make this salad. This recipe uses several superfoods that you may have at home already. Celtic Sea salt, Kombucha that has fermented till it is vinegar, broth, and coconut oil.  You can use apple cider vinegar if you don’t have kombucha vinegar. ACV is about twice as acidic as kombucha vinegar so the recipe calls for half as much. Many of my blog posts contain affiliate links. Purchasing through an affiliate...
