Pumpkins and Pumpkin Seeds – October’s Seasonal Super Foods

Abundant October Pumpkins Fall is all about the color and as the leaves turn to brilliant hues of yellow, orange and red, the pumpkins glow their own brilliant orange across their dry and yellowed fields. That brilliant orange is not just great to look at. It's also a sign of the rich goodness of pumpkin in the diet. You've probably noticed that the other place that brilliant orange [...]

Classic Parisian Chicken Salad with a Twist: Apples and Celery and Mint, Oh My!

Parisian Chicken Salad with celery, apples and mint on a bed of greenleaf lettuce. Celery and apples are two ingredients I can eat any time. The crunch, the flavor, the freshness of a juicy bite of  either one of these lovelies works for me in any one of a hundred ways. I add them to all kinds of things, and most particularly love them raw and fresh in [...]

Increase the Healing Power of Your Juices with Healing Dandelion

Summer is the perfect time for juicing with all the fresh produce coming up in the garden and at the farmers market. It's also a great way to handle bumper crops of greens, squash and melons. There is nothing like a whole garden bed of kale, lettuce or spinach to get you in the mood to juice - because there is just no way to eat all of that great [...]

Healthy Breakfast Burrito Recipe With Homemade Tortillas – YUM!

This year I've finally gotten the whole “soaked grains thing” down. We've been getting our raw pastured milk now for going on three years, and after mastering the art of whey making and an extensive exploration into fermented goodies like pickles, sauerkraut and carrots and ginger (my personal fave) it was time to get serious about soaking grains. Now, I had done the “beans thing” - in fact I've been [...]

Butternut Squash Soup Recipe – A Winter Soup to Warm Your Soul

Some people just cannot stand winter. The dark, the cold, the endless dreary grey skies... They all combine to just be more than these people can manage and so they plan get-aways, go south for the season, or relocate permanantly to places where winter never comes. Not me. Oh, I've lived a good portion of my life where winter never comes, but I grew weary of the season-lessness of it [...]

The Amazing Broccoli Connection: Why You Want to Eat More Cruciferous Vegetables

Our Gut and Skin - Protecting us Inside and Out Seems lately we've been hearing a lot - (and it's a good thing, I'm not complaining!) about our skin. About the skin being the largest organ of our bodies, and how what we put on our skin winds up in our bloodstream in very short order... This is a big reason I'm a fan of an all organic all natural [...]

Save Your Pumpkin for Pie – The Ugly Truth about Pumpkin Juice

I've been seeing a lot of pumpkin juice recipes floating around the Internet recently, and got intrigued. I've never juiced pumpkin before and the other night I harvested a little pumpkin from our garden, around 6 inch diameter, and thought I'd give it a try. The skin of the pumpkin is very hard and dry, and I couldn't imagine it would be a good idea pushing that through my trusty [...]

Look Younger and Live Longer with this Fall Harvest Juice

This must be one of the best tasting juices we've ever created, and it's super good for you! The grapes and green apples work really well together, the cucumber makes it light, and the kale and celery give it some bitter overtones. We didn't add any carrots to this one to keep it an all-green juice, and not lose that refreshing tart-bitter flavor. Juice Recipe So here's how you make [...]
