We were thrilled to learn that we could make fermented food ourselves, that would have MORE probiotic content than the expensive supplements we couldn't afford. We now make regular batches of lacto-fermented vegetables regularly, make yogurt from grass-fed organic milk and brew our own kombucha tea. I wanted to share a couple of ideas for how to enjoy our favorite fermented vegetable: Sauerkraut. Read On ➜ http://bit.ly/1juZsez

Spaghetti & meatballs, burgers with all the fixins, Mama's meatloaf with bacon... my family really loves these meals. But sometimes I don't have time - or all the ingredients to make them fully. No problem - we can make a quick variation on the above by using similar ingredients. The result is usually the same - I hear lots of  'mmmmm!'s around the table. Read On ➜ http://bit.ly/1kEWyqx

Here is my favorite hummus recipe - but don't feel locked down to just this!  I have made splendid hummus-inspired dips out of lentils, black or white beans... the sky is the limit! Try to think of the basic necessities for making it flavorful and smooth:  beans, good olive oil, garlic, salt & some fresh herbs and a splash of acidity (lemon juice can be replaced with vinegar). With those keys - you are on your way towards creating luscious and healthy side dishes for your family. Read On ➜ http://bit.ly/1e1s5dr

Come harvest-time 2014 I intend to be ready with some drying screens, twine, and cheesecloth. I’m so excited to try out these time-honored traditional recipes with the fruits from my own garden. Preserving Food focuses on eight basic methods of traditional food preservation, all heavily used before the industrial revolution gave us canning and freezing methods: root cellaring; dehydrating; lactic fermentation; and preserving in oil, vinegar, salt, sugar, and alcohol. And you can enter to win a copy for your bookshelf! Read On ➜ http://bit.ly/1gGC7o4

A sugar-detox will help your body to eat better, and help your taste buds to enjoy it. I like how Diane Sanfilippo defines her 21 Day Sugar Detox program as “a clear-cut, effective, whole-foods-based nutrition action plan that will reset your body and your habits…By focusing on quality protein, healthy fats, and good carbs, this program will help you change not only the foods you eat, but also your habits around food, and even the way your palate reacts to sweet foods.” Is a sugar detox right for you?
