Have fun plans scheduled for the 4th?  People in our community do love their fireworks.  I can tell due to their having started letting them off a couple weeks ago.  One was so loud that it made our neighbor’s car alarm go off-craziness! I always enjoy implementing some of the old school games in our …
I had not given much thought, until recently, to my lymphatic system.  With my working hard to improve my health, heightened since being diagnosed w/ an autoimmune disease and lyme disease, I’ve learned of this system’s importance. From Cleveland Clinic’s website: “Lymph is a clear or slightly yellowish watery fluid whose job is to remove …
Okay, so Alaena Haber over at the blog Grazed and Enthused is brilliant!  I’ve tried some of her AIP friendly recipes and am always pleased w/ the results but her Prosciutto Strombolli is AMAZING good!  My husband loves them.  I mean, singing praises loves them.  Instead of the Prosciutto, for his I add sliced turkey meat. …
Sweet happiness!  I found another AIP friendly snack!  One that I can eat straight out of the bag too.  This is big!  What is it?  TigerNuts.  Have you heard of them?  They are actually not nuts but small root vegetables.  They are quite crunchy and have a taste similar to sunflower seeds.  The bag of …

It is hard to find food products that don’t contain nasty preservatives and stabilizers.  If you like coconut milk, I’ve found a couple brands that don’t contain the ingredients guar gum & carageenan.  Find out more about these ingredients and why I choose to avoid food products that contain them here. The coconut milk that …
It’s time for bringing out those garden gloves and shovels and get planting those pretty flowers!  I have a developed a fondness for bees ever since realizing they are a tad bit (actually A LOT) important.  Since we aren’t becoming beekeepers anytime soon, thought we could still help the bees by planting flowers that they …
As I was skimming through a book (which is how I seem to read books now) I came across a section highlighting the importance of establishing a written set of values and rules for your family.  Meaning the parents need to be in agreement w/ what they (values and rules) are and then make sure …
What a ride it is!  Anyone else at the point in their lives where they are ready to put their hands in the air to enjoy the ups and downs (& flips!)?  Isn’t it interesting how right when you feel like things are starting to become calm, that is when another “what?!” moment occurs. Looking …
