Kale is one of the healthiest veggies on the planet and when combined with it’s cruciferous cousins – green and purple cabbage – and a light vinaigrette, it makes for a deliciously crisp slaw that makes an excellent side dish or sandwich topping.  Cruciferous veggies are loaded with fiber, vitamin C and folate as well as …

Our modern world is pretty stressful despite its numerous conveniences and with all of the hustle and bustle of a hectic daily life, many people find they get home after a long day exhausted and yet, have trouble falling or staying asleep at night.  One thing that I love about Yoga is its ability to …

Although our government continues to maintain the position that there’s nothing wrong with fluoride ingestion, there’s been enough controversy that I personally feel the need to filter it from our drinking water and stop using fluoridated toothpaste.  There are a number of natural toothpaste options out there for purchase, but they can be hard to …

One of the things that I’ve missed most since discovering that I have a gluten-intolerance is PASTA – and GOOD pasta, not the crappy gluten-free pasta wanna-bes that are flooding the market at a ridiculous $3 and $4 dollars a box.  I suppose it’s what capitalism is all about, but it really irks me that manufacturers consistently …

After the success I had with my basic ginger beer, I decided to take my next little ginger bug on a new adventure into the tropical world of pineapple to hopefully create a fruity and refreshing soda.  I happened to have several cans of pineapple juice leftover from a party and decided to try adding one to my initial …

  The heat index is 100F today and what are we doing? Baking! Probably not the best day for this project, but it’s too hot and humid to be outside for long and my kids were ‘bored’ and keeping me from getting any work done, so I decided to give them a little project.  I also happen …
Does anything smell more amazing than fresh basil?  Yum....
After a long holiday weekend with many indulgences, I’ve been feel less than stellar and sleeping horribly.  Summer is a tough time to do a full on cleanse with all the activities and special events going on, but a week-long mini cleanse is pretty easy to pull off, especially during a recovery week from workouts.  So …

Okay, so if you read my last post, you’ll know all about several of the health benefits of opting for naturally-fermented sodas over the crappy store-bought kind.  And if you’re excited and motivated by the prospect of making this awesome stuff at home like I was, you will already have a jar of ginger bug …

My kids love soda.  What’s not to love, right? Sugary sweet and delightfully bubbly and fizzy – it’s a treat for sure!  As it turns out, there’s A LOT not to love about these drinks.  Mass production processes and the desire for increased profits has led to the use of increasingly cheaper ingredients, as well …

  I can’t believe how excited I am about BREAD – it almost seems ridiculous to me.  However, after years of avoiding it like the plague because of issues I have with gluten-intolerance, I am SUPER-thrilled to have found a way that I can enjoy bread again (in moderation of course, which is tough when …
