My Favorites

Over three years ago, friends and I met to talk about real food and educating people.  From that picnic table, this blog was born.  Admittedly, some posts are worse than others.  Additionally, worthy words have fallen through the proverbial cracks.

I wanted to make you aware of links I've added in the right column:  my all time favorite posts on this blog.

You'll discover ways to save cash by ordering through Azure Standard (Oct. 9 is this month's ordering deadline) or learn key words to look for when buying fish.

Maybe you're new to the real food scene and need confidence in cooking a chicken...with bones.  Quite possibly your man needs a bit of encouragement to jump on the real food band wagon (that one was written by my hubby to women everywhere.) 

Are you paying too much for dead milk?  Read the difference between pasteurized and ultra-pasteurized milk.

Probably the easiest baby step, and doesn't add much to the food budget, is to buy pastured eggs.  This post attempts to convince you to pay more for nutrient dense eggs.

Recently, I made a tab across the top of the blog called "Favorite Recipes."  Go there to find most recipes you've seen here.

Are there other posts that are your favorites?

Lacto-fermenting {Probiotics} Workshop

You are invited to a workshop on making probiotic foods for your family on Saturday, September 21st from 9-11 am.  This is an opportunity taste a variety of lacto-fermented foods and to learn to economically add probiotic, nutrient-dense food to your diet, as well as asking questions regarding traditional foods.

We will be making lacto-fermented condiments like mayonnaise, ketchup, and sauerkraut, as well as making kombucha, and water kefir.  Because water kefir is growing in its popularity and people on a dairy-free diet can benefit from this drink, we will have different flavors of water kefir to sample that taste kind of like KeVita.

You will go home armed with both a kombucha SCOBY and water kefir grains, new friends in the real food journey, and confident to start making your own probiotics.

The teacher is my good friend, Diane Loftness.  She has a wealth of knowledge of real food and healthy living.  Growing up on a farm in Kansas, she has been eating and preparing traditional foods her entire life.  Within recent years she and her family have been eating grain free and experienced healing from eating according to the GAPS diet.

This workshop will be in Diane's home near Conway.  There will be a limit of 15 participants. Cost is $25, non-refundable, in advance to hold your spot.  Please email Diane soon if you would like to participate; the last workshop she hosted sold out.
