The condiments are fermented, or zesty, or fresh and they each add conversation and harmony to the table. The food draws us together and gives us joy at the end of …

Megan Soups and Stews, Traditional Healing Foods, Whole Food Recipes 29 Comments

We pretty much always have the crock pot going, with bone broth. So we are never without. Almost. Every once in a while, life gets too busy and the pot gets too low. Enter bonito, a pantry staple. If there was ever an easy and nutrient dense broth, bonito broth is it.  Bonito flakes are taken from a bag, thrown …

We don’t do much screen time. We save it as a special treat, for rare nights when we’re all exhausted or for when we’re sick. Even with infrequent viewing, it’s easy to run out of great programming.  We love the older Disney classics like Mary Poppins and Swiss Family Robinson, as well as incomparable masterpieces like The Sound of Music.  …

RAW EGGNOG RECIPE with a dairy-free option

Megan Drinks, Traditional Healing Foods, Treats, Whole Food Recipes 11 Comments

TEXTURE Commercial brands of eggnog use thickeners such as carageenan and guar gum, some of which have been linked with inflammation and are undesirable for a pure, whole food diet. However, truth be told, I like a thick eggnog, one that is almost custard-like. So I have added that all-time healthy thickener, sustainably-sourced gelatin, to my recipe. The added step …

Being a good Weston A. Price follower I dutifully eat my organ meats and feed them to my family. The rabbit organ meat we recently ate, however, was, hands down, the best organ meat I have ever enjoyed. So, if you're raising rabbits for meat, or buying rabbits from a local farmer, don't neglect these gems. The livers are small compared even to chicken livers, in their thickness. So the texture is more subtle and delicate. The kidneys are mild and yet flavorful, pleasant in texture. The hearts, well, almost everyone loves hearts. They're a muscle after all; so they taste meaty. They are a bit chewy, but in a nice way, and can be cooked to medium, not well-done. This garlic reduction sauce I made was bordering on heaven.
