If you are on Instagram you know I have been on a green “flatbread” kick lately. My husband would call it a jag 😉…love you honey! I first discovered raw green “bread” from following the amazing Dr. Deanna Mutzel on instagram…check her out here. She is the Queen of this stuff and she has a wonderful ebook and online course where you can learn all there is to know about making it. I have been toying around with my own version and many of you have asked for me to share it, and since I always gladly share my recipes with you all, here goes. Continue reading
Years and years ago as a teenager I did a stint of eating macrobiotic and back then we made a LOT of gomasio and put it on everything! I can just taste it now. So good! We made it with sesame seeds and sea salt…simple enough. I decided to give it a go with hemp hearts, which are my current favorite and a recent successful food reintroduction.
Here is what I did. I can’t even call this a recipe…it’s a “barely recipe”. Continue reading
Sad to admit, but it has only been in recent years that I discovered that you need to oil cutting boards. Regular oiling will certainly extend the life of your wooden boards. I try to remember to oil mine once a month, or sooner Continue reading
We used to donate our kitchen scraps to a local farm, then later to a botanical garden. At some point I decided I wanted to use them to make my OWN compost, but I wasn’t eager to invest in a pricey 2 bin system. Somewhere way back, I read that you could compost in a trash can. That intrigued me, so I improvised this system and did some additional tweaking Continue reading
Lately I have been making a new version of soup based on my Creamy Cauliflower Leek Soup base. It is delicious and I love the addition of watercress, which is a nutrient powerhouse, and is naturally anti-histamine. This version is made in my Instant Pot, but can also be done stovetop if you don’t have one. I use water as the liquid, but you can certainly opt for broth. Meat broth or juices are often problematic for me due to their high histamine content, but they do make an even tastier soup, so if you tolerate them, GO for it! Continue reading
I like storing leftovers in glass or stainless steel to avoid plastic chemical nasties. I have a large collection of Pyrex storage containers and they honestly get used every day! I prep my workday salads in the 6 cup and my on the go hot meals in the 3 cup rectangular storage dishes. I had a combination of their basic blue simply store lids and the solid grey or clear and red plastic “no leak” lids from purchases over the years. The plastic lids degrade over time, cracking and peeling at the edges and sometimes warping making them ill fitting, but the bases…well I may be handing those down to my future grandchildren some day, since pyrex glass lasts for YEARS! So when I discovered that their new Ultimate lid system made of glass and silicone is now sold separately as a replacement lid, well I counted up every one of my bases and ordered new lids for them all. And let me tell you, these new lids deliver. Continue reading
In my quest to reduce exposure to toxins anywhere I can, I had been struggling to find a household cleaner. Not only am I sensitive to lots of chemicals, but I am really triggered by many scents and fragrances…are any of you with me? I know anyone with mast cell or histamine issues like me will totally get that!
I had been seeing Force of Nature Clean all over instagram in accounts of many people I follow and respect and finally decided to give it a try.
About a week after I started using it I had an AHA moment. Continue reading
Back in the fall of 2017 when I was making the switch to cleaner and greener body and haircare products I discovered the line by FlourishBeautyLab and can’t believe I am just getting around to sharing about it! It’s been a busy year! I just LOVE their lavender mint scent! My 2 FAVORITE smells blended together are ON POINT!
I use Continue reading
