RECIPE: OMG, Make Ghee (Clarified Butter) in the Instant Pot!

OMG!  Ghee in the Instant Pot?  Yes!

In case you didn't already know, your Instant Pot can also be used as a Slow Cooker!  Some slow cookers with ceramic dishes have been found to have lead in the surface that touches the food.  Yikes!  But the Instant Pot has a stainless steel pan, so the surfaces that touch the food are free of lead!  Here's the Instant Pot I have. I really like how quickly the Instant Pot heats up when used in Slow Cooker mode, and...

Why You Need to Reduce Inflammatory Omega-6 Oils in Your Family's Diet NOW!

The total amount of Omega 6 oils in the standard Western diet is way too high.  Humans need a balance of Omega 3, 6, and 9s and because of processed vegetable oils, we are getting way too many Omega 6 oils and not enough Omega 3s or 9s.

Elevated Omega-6 intakes are associated with an increase in all inflammatory diseases – which is to say virtually all diseases. The list includes (but isn’t limited to):

  • cardiovascular disease

RECIPE: Kefir Water Soda

Omg, have you ever tried water kefir?  If you're new to fermented foods, it's the first place to start.  SO easy and so tasty.  The greatest thing about this yummy bubbly soda is that it doesn't taste fermented. Even my husband likes it, and that's saying something! I have tried making water kefir a few times before, and let me tell you, the quality of the grains matters.  They are what turns the sugar water from sugar water into a wonderful probiotic drink. I got my most...

RECIPE: Grain-Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Protein Bars

These are slightly sweet, chewy and delicious.  Don't be scared away by the gelatin protein powder.  I am usually turned off by the flavor of the natural gelatin, but I can't taste it in these AT ALL!   I had two big pieces of these bars with some bacon for breakfast this morning! I also included a bar in my son's lunch.

FYI, some links on my site are affiliate links.  It's my mission to get nutrient-dense, compassionately raised food into the mouths of everyone on...
