Eating organic isn’t just for hipsters anymore, it’s becoming more and more mainstream and it’s not as costly as it used to be. There is a growing body of evidence to support why we should eat organic.

Digestive Dysfunction: The Long-Term Impact
September 17, 2020
0

Many people struggle with digestive dysfunction today and the long-term impact of digestive dysfunction can show up in all kinds of places you would never associate with digestion. Remember, digestion is a major nutritional foundation for optimal health and when it’s not working, things can get weird.

Symptoms like heartburn, indigestion, gas, and bloating are so common that we actually think they are normal. These symptoms are not normal and are your body’s way of alerting you that something is not working correctly.

It’s critically important for us to pay attention to these signals and make corrections. We really are what we can absorb and if you are not digesting food correctly and absorbing nutrients for an extended period of time, dysfunction will start to show up in other bodily systems including the Endocrine, Immune, Cardiovascular, and Detoxification systems.

Wow, blueberry swirl cheesecake!

I got some fantastic looking blueberries at the farmer’s market this weekend and I wasn’t sure what to do with them. They kept staring at me every time I opened the refrigerator.

Since I have a fabulous cheesecake recipe, I thought why not try something different and work on a blueberry puree that I could swirl into the cheesecake?

Oxalates: What Are They, Why Should I Care?
September 3, 2020

An Oxalate Overview

Oxalates, also referred to as oxalic acid, are organic compounds that naturally occur in a wide variety of plants, including everything from leafy greens, legumes, nuts, and seeds, to cruciferous vegetables, blueberries, and dark chocolate. In small quantities, the body can also create oxalates by metabolizing vitamin C.

They are essentially a protective measure that plants have to defend themselves against predators. Like lectins and phytates, oxalates are considered to be antinutrients because once consumed, they tend to bind to minerals, like calcium or iron, forming oxalate compounds and causing the minerals to be non-bioavailable and therefore not useful to the body from a nutritional standpoint.

This lemon-lime electrolyte Popsicle recipe saved my damned life last week!

We live in Arizona, and this summer is brutal. We’re going on 50 days of over 100-degree temps and last week our central air conditioning went out!

Yup. During an excessive heat warning, temps of 116-122 degrees, the fan that cools the condenser blew apart and the unit was unable to cool because the condenser kept shutting off because it was overheating.

Parsnip Chips on a Plate

Snacks…I’m always on the lookout for new paleo snacks. Paleo generally means safe for me since I’m always chasing food sensitivities. Safe snacks like my parsnip chips and celery root french fries are great options for me when I need a munchie!

Paleo store-bought options are definitely easier to find these days, but they’re so expensive! I’d rather save some money and control the ingredients at home.

So I decided to compile all of my favorite paleo snack posts here so you guys can check em out.

Family dinners are more than just a meal. It is about the only time that families have to share time through the week. Whether you sit down to the dinner table or enjoy a meal on tray tables and a movie in the family room, the important thing is that you are together.
