As you all know, I love an old fashioned birthday party in the backyard where kids can play as they wish! I serve healthy food, and try to make it fun. I have provided all the links so you can do this yourself, if you wish. When my son wanted a Skeleton Birthday Party, I was excited to dive into this challenge. I only have one child, so I get excited about his birthday parties.
I love my Instant Pot! I love this recipe so much, it’s worth having an IP just for boiling eggs and making this!!! I have made these little custards a few times now. Last time, I used mushrooms. This time I am using chorizo! We cooked up some chorizo for breakfast the other day, and set aside some for custards. I was very excited to find chorizo at my pastured farmer’s shop in town. This recipe serves six, as an appetizer or side dish. It is very rich!
You NEED your gallbladder. Your body NEEDS healthy natural fat, especially your brain, which is 65% fat. If you stop eating fat, your gallbladder will stop working period. I did this technique over a year ago, and I still eat a high fat diet and am perfectly fine, without pain or supplements for my gallbladder.
Here’s a great recipe for a last minute dessert. It takes only a few minutes to make and you can chill it while you eat. Like all my kid friendly recipes, this is very low in sugar, and low sweet. You can sub other nut butter for the peanut butter.
You don’t need eggs to make this amazing Chocolate Ice Cream. You will need an ice cream maker, though!
I’d rather prevent lice, than end up with it. Really, just the thought of lice freaks me out. So, after the first scare of the dreaded email, that someone in Sunday School had lice, I started wondering what I could do to prevent it. Here is my recipe.
The fact is, there’s inherent risk in every choice we make. Well, every choice worth making at all, that is.
We call choices “risky” if they make us nervous. We have given “risk” a nasty, scary connotation. We’ve started saying “rather not chance it” about every little thing, especially when it comes to our kids. “You can never be too safe!”seems to be the rallying cry of this generation.
But that’s wrong.
We forget that risk is often defined as the “potential of gaining or losing something of value.”
Playing it safe leaves us without the potential to gain something of power. It leaves an empty space in our lives, in the lives of our children, that cannot be filled. Our lives are duller, flatter, less, without risk.
Risk isn’t just the chance that something bad can happen. It’s the chance that something good can happen. The very nature of risk is that there is something to be gained, something worthwhile, something valuable.
We should encourage our kids to be risk takers.
We should encourage them to follow their instinctive drive to educate themselves.
People often ask me how I got into natural remedies and Naturopaths, acupuncture, etc. Well, the reason is basically, because Western Medicine failed me, over and over. Now I’m not saying that I never turn to it.. obviously in some cases, we need antibiotics, surgery, bone settings, c-sections (sometimes), etc. They are life-savers. But when it came to my own health journey, I found more problems with traditional American medicine.
I keep hearing people referring to Whole Foods and how they are partnering with Monsanto. It’s driving me crazy! Look, I’m all about conspiracy theories, but this one is ALL about clickbait ratings.
