Organic Food: Is it Safer and More Nutritious?

Do you try to eat organic? All organic? Some organic? If it’s on sale? Why do you eat organic? Or why don’t you? Do you know why your life and the life of the planet might depend on it? What is organic? The term “organic” refers to the way agricultural products are grown and processed. […]

Zucchini Noodle – A Paleo Staple

Ready to be added to sauce OH what a steep learning curve this going grain free is.  There have been some serious challenges to keeping it up….the biggest being that I am a mom that signs up/volunteers/says yes and takes on more than I should.  I can actually hear Big Daddy’s eyes roll as I […]

Roasted Bussel Sprouts

Everything is yummy cooked in bacon and onions….EVERYTHING!! One of my New Years resolutions for 2013 was to try foods I have always claimed to not like.  I have never been a really picky eater (does being gluten free, dairy free and mostly sugar free count as picky?  I think not) but there were a […]

Vegetable Stock and Curry Sweet Potato Soup

We have now come out the other end of ‘tag you’re it’ stomach flu.  I always think I have somehow managed to avoid what ever the kids have brought home but oh how the mighty do fall. Auto-immune diseases and all I actually fared pretty well.  Everyone else in the family spent at least 12 […]

Maple Ginger Glazed Salmon

We have been having lots of play dates lately.  The long winter in southern Ontario this year has forced all the kids indoors and has all us parents dying for some social time.  Our food choices and my restrictions make it so much easier to invite people to our house than go to theirs. Also, […]

Real Food Shepherd’s Pie

This almost Paleo dish was a huge success around here.  Any dinner leftovers were eaten by a certain ‘Daddy Monster’ while he did the supper washing up.  I would like to say that we ate this with a huge salad like I would recommend for you and yours to do but after a very cold […]

How to make Chicken Stock

 “Why is chicken soup superior to all things we have, even more relaxing than ‘Tylenol?’  It is because chicken soup has a natural ingredient which feeds, repairs and calms the mucous lining in the small intestine.  The inner lining is the beginning or ending of the nervous system.  It is easily pulled away from the […]

Nuts to you……almond butter

There was a series of books when I was a kid that we kept at our summer house in North Carolina.  The characters were all animals and it might have had something to do with Busy Town….you know with Loley Worm? Anyway there was a naughty bird that was always up to no good.  In […]

Dairy Free Vegan Sour Cream

Dairy Free Vegan Sour Cream Going dairy free isn’t easyEating a Paleo diet or any diet (and obeying all the rules) ain’t easy. At this point I’m not trying to adhere to any particular ‘diet’ or plan other than gluten free and dairy free (with the exception of butter….I use so little of it and […]

My Good Morning Coffee

This road to recovery is so much longer than I anticipated.  I thought when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Disease that it meant my health issues were solved.  That finally they would have a path and a treatment plan for my on-going symptoms.  It is almost 5 years later (since the diagnoses) and I am […]
