It’s that time of year, all my favorite goodies just begging to be eaten. I have absolutely ZERO will power when presented with tasty treats. I LOVE desserts. I know I have a problem with sugar. It took me years to realize it but I finally have clarity about sugar. I love it and once […]
Red meat is back in the news. This happens pretty regularly and it’s never good news. Some new study gets publish, the media goes crazy and everyone panics. I often find myself panicking about things I hear or read but in this case I actually didn’t think twice about it. When this new report about cancer […]
So, I’m a bit of a drinking water freak. Actually, I’m probably just a water freak. When I say freak I mean it in a good way. Clean water is important to me. The more I learn about nutrition and health the more I know I have been right all these years about wanting to […]
This has been a busy food week at our house. Fall harvest time. I got a crazy huge cabbage and many other beautiful things from our CSA this past Tuesday. The cabbage was the only thing that had me flummoxed. Embarrassing to admit but I’ve never made anything with cabbage. I like food made with […]

I have spent the last couple of months buried deep in all things thyroid, lectures, books, testing. WOW, the thyroid is amazing, it’s the bodies “option” key. I remember someone saying that the “option” key on the keyboard makes everything better, hold down the option key and all kinds of good stuff happens, well that’s […]
In my previous post, Aches, Pains, Nightshade? I mentioned that the toxic buildup from nightshades might be at the root of your unexplained body issues. I don’t feel like I gave a very complete list of edible nightshades so that’s what I’m going to do here.
Common Edible Nightshades: Potatoes (except Sweet Potatoes) Tomatoes Tomatillos Peppers […]
I just read an article outlining all the ways nightshades could secretly be driving you crazy. I tend to click on articles about nightshades since my husband and I just finished a month of eating without nightshades. For the most part I’d say the results were somewhat inconclusive, meaning we didn’t really notice any changes during […]
It’s still January and we are still 100% autoimmune paleo. I’m going to share one of the recipes that we loved the first time we made it so have continued to make it all month. It’s a simple chicken stir-fry. I told you I’d have pictures and I do. I also just installed new recipe-card […]
