Make Thanksgiving Delicious AND Nutritious!

holidays thanksgiving tips Nov 14, 2019
 

Let’s start with the bird. Buy the healthiest turkey you can comfortably afford. With local, pasture-raised being the healthiest and conventional (CAFO) being the least, with many options in between. To limit exposure to toxins if you go with conventional, don’t eat the fat or skin, which is where toxins are more concentrated. We like to roast ours, but there are many, many options; bacon-wrapped, fried, stuffed, braised, rubbed, smoked, just to name a few of the most popular.

Next up, dressing. I simply adapted my family’s recipe that has been around for generations and everyone loves it. I...

Fermented Cranberry Sauce

holidays recipe Nov 05, 2019

Cranberries are a delicious superfood with vitamin C, fiber, and antioxidants. The fermentation process provides beneficial probiotics with lots of good bacteria. It's good for the digestion and boosts immunity. I love this and always make extra so that I can eat it for months. It's great on yogurt, turkey wraps or just by itself. Kids love it too, so delicious!

Minimize Halloween Sugar Meltdowns: 3 Tips

holidays kids sugar tips Oct 31, 2019
 

Need help managing your kids’ sugar intake and navigating the upcoming Holidays? It’s easy to justify allowing our kids to consume excess sugar, you know,

  • “it’s Halloween” (or any other holiday, birthday…).
  • “it’s a childhood rite of passage”.
  • “they deserve a treat”.
  • “kids’ bodies can handle sugar”.
  • “I ate lots of sugar when I was a kid”.

Does any of this sound familiar? Trust me I’m not judging, those were my words. However, once I understood the real damage my kids’ little bodies were experiencing, I could no longer justify it.

I encourage you to consider the long-term health dangers of sugar and processed food; impaired brain function, sugar addiction, depression, cognitive delay, sleep problems, low energy, mood swings, chronic inflammation, lifelong poor eating habits, and links to obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and type 2 diabetes. These are real...

A Primal Thanksgiving

The menu has evolved over the last several years as we have become more committed to a healthier lifestyle. In the beginning, I made dishes we don’t eat to accommodate our guests. I no longer do that, but certainly welcome whatever they wish to bring. I announce the menu in advance so they can plan accordingly. For now, the turkey is brining, a few sides and desserts have been made, and we wait for tomorrow.

I have been asked numerous times to share my menu plan, so here it is.

Turkey; I ordered a fresh organic bird from Whole Foods. It does cost quite a bit more, but I will use all of it including the bones for making broth. Buying one that...
