Jesse’s Healing Journey – How Gluten Free Foods and Holistic Medicine Saved His Life

Early October 2017 was sunny and beautiful, a perfect time to finish fall clean-up chores as we headed towards winter. Jesse was weed whacking and the kids teamed up raking leaves and cleaning up debris.     I was in the kitchen putting the finishing touches on my pie crust recipe when Aidan came bursting through the door. My heart stopped, the blood drained from my face as he shouted “Dad is on the ground and can’t get up!” My mind raced. Was he alive, did he have a heart-attack, maybe a stroke?   Flying out of the house I shouted over and over, hoping he could answer back. I heard a faint, “I am over here.” Thank God, he could talk! As I rounded the corner I could see him on all fours struggling...

vegan mayonnaise

Vegan Mayonnaise Your Family will Crave

Vegan mayonnaise got you down? It is expensive from the grocery store and doesn't compare in flavor to fresh, homemade mayonnaise. Many brands contain soy which is a common allergen. Avocado mayonnaise is egg free, diary free, soy free and nut free.   Do you miss rich, silky delicious mayonnaise? There is nothing like tomato juice mingling with mayo in a veggie wrap. It is the ingredient that pulls a dish together and adds a creamy mouth-feel. Sometimes you don't realize how much you enjoy foods until you can't (choose not to) eat them anymore.     Our family has eliminated eggs because of allergies. Healing from food allergies is a journey. There are times that your body tolerates something and then decides it has had enough and you will need to eliminate that food...

Use this recipe for gluten free lettuce tacos and for making fermented salsa.   There is never enough pico de gallo salsa at our house! We can eat it on steak, salad, with mexican rice or on fajitas. In fact, all we really need is a spoon!     I used to make the worst salsa! My hubby suffered blistered lips, wondered why I was serving chopped onions and chips for a snack and gagged more than a few times as I presented him with yet another attempt to master fresh salsa. Then he hinted that perhaps I should just...

“Fibromyalgia is Just a Group of Symptoms”

I want to write! I want to tell you about all that is going on inside of me, but it is trapped. It is trapped in my analytical mind and entangled in the swirl of emotions I feel. I struggle to put feelings into words. I feel, I know, I do, and I am, don’t ask me to (what is that word?) …verbalize what all of the feels are. Words are so inadequate in describing feelings.     [caption id="attachment_51004" align="aligncenter" width="562"] photo credit Kalen Emsley[/caption]   Feelings are color and sound and taste; there is adrenaline and temperature, there is light and dark. How can you harness all of that and just say happy or sad? I know there are many words that mean much more than happy or sad, but they pale in...
