Detox Bath Ingredients

How to Take a Detox Bath, a.k.a. Why YOU should be taking more baths!

The goal is to reduce one's carbon footprint, not by going vegan or vegetarian, (because our bodies are obviously omnivorous by design), but by eating insects.

CRICKET FLOUR PANCAKES AND WAFFLES

Yes, cricket flour, flour made from dried crickets. It’s a good thing! My big sister Jill told me about cricket flour a year or two ago, after hearing about it on NPR, I think? I was on board immediately.  As long as it tastes good, one, and two, what are they feeding the crickets? Because what they feed the bugs …

AIP Plantain Cricket Flour Pancakes- Egg-free, Nut-free, Dairy-free

Plantains are a healthy starch worth loving. They’re gentle to digest, not for those on the GAPS diet but for those who flourish with Paleo or the AIP diets, and amazingly they are so starchy that very little flour is needed when baking with plantains. Similarly, you can make plantain recipes work without eggs. So they’re excellent for those with …

Why Most Green Smoothies Aren’t Healthy- The Inside Scoop on Oxalates

My mom is Jewish. And if you don't mind a little unbiased bias, all the Jewish people who've loved me have loved to feed me- large quantities! So even though blintzes have been our traditional Christmas breakfast my entire life, my mom also made 6 pounds of homemade sausage patties, 4 pounds of lamb chops (I'm not kidding!), had sourdough bread and butter, toppings for the blintzes, a huge fruit platter AND asked me to bring a large crustless quiche. Let me count... we had 15 people. 15 people and all that food! She is always worried we will not have enough!

Crustless Quiche with Kale, Zucchini and Garlic

The main differences between a crustless quiche and a frittata are that a crustless quiche is baked in the oven, not started on the stove top, and more importantly, that a crustless quiche is loaded with cream.
