Our lymph passages run all throughout our bodies. They are responsible for moving lymph carrying internal and external toxins and pathogens to be excised. Environmental toxins, as well as bacteria, viruses and cellular waste, travels through these pathways to the lymph nodes. The lymph nodes are cleansing stations where lymph is filtered and purified. When lymph becomes stagnate, our cells can’t work efficiently, causing toxins to build up, and resulting in health issues like these. [Read more…]

You may believe you don’t eat much sugar, certainly not as much as most people. Even the most health-conscious people eat more sugar than they think they do though because it’s everywhere. It’s hidden in condiments, soups, and even meat! So even if you faithfully abstain from sugary ice cream treats and sugar-laden cereal, you are probably getting much more sugar than you realize.

One of the biggest questions I get is about where I went to school and how that knowledge landed my in a position to start my blog. My story starts way before I even went to Nursing school, but I told that part in another post: The True Story of My Nursing Career. Today I’ve decided to tell you about the Institute of Integrative Nutrition (IIN), my school, and what students who attend learn there. [Read more…]
My Grandma was mostly Polish and I remember her cooking fondly. Her dumplings were one of my favorite meals ever! One meal that I always wanted her to make was pierogies because I had seen them in the stores and I knew they were a Polish food. She never made them, unfortunately. So when we had an amazing girl from Poland come to stay with them I immediately asked if she knew how to make them. Oh yes, she did! They are AMAZING! So, I decided to share them with you guys. Enjoy these amazing Homemade Potato Pierogies! [Read more…]

I grew up eating lefse during the holidays and it was always a favorite treat. We have been gluten-free for years now and I decided it was time to come up with a grain free version of this holiday favorite.

Feeding kids is about as easy as nailing Jell-O to a tree or perhaps herding cats?! My kids have always eaten the Real Food lifestyle, which means no junk. But it still poses its challenges! They seem to change their minds daily to make it even more fun. One day they are begging for cheesy eggs, the next day they can’t stand eggs, then its back to eggs that weekend. Oy! So recipe creation can be tricky, but this Nutty Grain-Free Granola Clusters recipe has been a big hit! Bonus: it lasts for two weeks in an airtight container, and you can make a double batch and freeze half! #momwin [Read more…]
We have been gluten-free for years but recently began experimenting with einkorn and fermenting it using the traditional sourdough method. Now I am making homemade sourdough bread every week and my family has had none of the issues that we had with conventional gluten! But, when you make sourdough using a starter, you often have a lot of starter sitting around. So, I decided to see if I could make pancakes with it. Voila! Einkorn Sourdough Pancakes were created!
