It has been about 10 days since the end of my Whole30. Before I got to the last day, I though that I would continue on longer with the Whole30 as I did not see the results that I was hoping to get and thought perhaps I needed more healing. I do admit that I was discouraged, because the end …

This week I took the opportunity to purchase a CSA style basket from Real Food Connections. It was also our week to go into the city to stock up for the next three weeks. Over the previous few days I’d also taken the time to read yet another health/nutrition book, Eat for Health by Dr. Joel Fuhrman, that strongly emphasized …

About 3 weeks ago, a friend of mine started a series of photos on Facebook of beautiful little lunches, packed tight in a box and using the hashtag #bento.

If I made something yummy in the kitchen, I posted about it. Organized a room? Onto the blog it went. Well, enter facebook and blogging …

We’ve survived our first week alone – give or take a couple days. This week was about learning to just relax in my skin a little. I took a bath in the middle of the day just because I could. Instead of stressing about getting the house all organized, I decided that my goal was to get it a little …

Over the last little while I have been researching gluten and  the effects it can have both on the gut and mind. Both Liam and I have some “issues” in both of these areas and others and are looking into seeing if we might be intolerant to gluten.  Liam’s pediatrician noticed several markers that make him think that Liam may …

A friend of mine from over at Home Sweet Home(school) has started a new linky/bloghop thing-a-ma-bobber on learning to calm the chaos of our homes/routines/life, etc. Well, what perfect timing as I’d already snapped a few photos this morning for a blog post that was already simmering in my mind.

As I mentioned earlier, we’ve changed our eating habits to align more with the theories of Weston A Price. Of all the changes that we’ve made, my favorite has to be making bone broth. I great satisfaction from it and we use our broth in EVERYTHING. A few years ago, the kids and I were learning about the dark ages …
