by Sarah TheHealthyHomeEconomist April 1, 2014

In my opinion, the brownie is hands down the most important American contribution to the world of pastries. I typically make brownies for my family using sprouted flour (recipe here), but I have gotten into the routine of making them grain free with whatever sprouted nut butter I have on hand of late.

These grain free brownies are crazy good and I am in full anticipation of a lot of email love floating into my inbox from those of you who try them!

Bone Marrow Custard: Nutrient Dense Delight

Bone Marrow Custard
A casual scan of the shelves of your local bookstore quickly reveals an overwhelming array of cookbooks. For one interested in truly healthy cooking, the choice can be overwhelming – which to choose, what recipes are best?

I don’t recommend many modern cookbooks on this blog for the simple reason that few are authentic from cover to cover from a traditional cooking perspective. Most are only partially accurate with excellent recipes here and there with the remainder promoting faddish, misleading, or incorrect information to the detriment of those earnestly seeking a wholesome, balanced cooking style.

I am pleased to say that in recent weeks, a giant among cookbooks has joined the ranks and it contains recipes and information that I can get behind 100% and wholeheartedly recommend for anyone interested in a time tested cooking approach that is worthy of learning yourself, but also priceless knowledge to pass along to your children and grandchildren.

How to Make Orangina (Fermented Orange Juice)

by Sarah TheHealthyHomeEconomist March 19, 2014

Oranges are the most commonly grown fruit tree in the world. A hybrid of ancient cultivated origin, possibly the pomelo and the mandarin, the orange is widely grown in warm climes with Brazil and the United States (California and Florida) predominant.

The elementary school I attended in Dunedin, Florida happened to be located only a few miles from a Hood’s orange juice factory, now owned by Coca-Cola.

Many days, my classmates and I could smell the distinctive aroma of burning citrus peels from the belching smokestack. While the smell didn’t bother me too much, many of my classmates found it nauseating with some even choosing to stay indoors for recess on days when the wind was blowing in the school’s direction.

While burning citrus peel waste may not seem too problematic, the process of extracting the juice from the oranges in a factory setting definitely is.  Read more…

Grain Free Granola (Nutola)

One of the more popular articles on this blog is No Granola is Good Granola which outlines why granola or muesli made with rolled oats or other grains is not only very indigestible but potentially harming your long term gut health – possibly even contributing to autoimmune disease like allergies or worse.  Even homemade granola made with soaked or sprouted oats is not a very digestible choice at all which initially can come as a shock to granola lovers who thought it was a healthfood.

I don’t like to point out problems without also providing a solution if possible.  For you granola fans out there, here is a grain free granola recipe from San Diego Weston A. Price Chapter Leader Kim Schuette and founder of BioDynamic Wellness and GAPSInfo.com that should satisfy that hankering for a bowl of granola without compromising your digestive function.

What To Do?

…when we breathe, bathe, ingest, walk on, cook with, drive in, & live in toxic chemicals…from the carpets our babies crawl on…to the fillings in our teeth, and the lotions we put on our skin? It can be maddening. Heavy metals, petrochemicals & other toxins are pervasive in our human domains, settling unwelcome, into our tissues & brains…and overwhelming our immune systems.

These toxins don’t just hang out. To quote Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, author of Gut And Psychology Syndrome, “Stored toxicity does not just sit silently in the tissues of our bodies. It causes symptoms of chronic diseases and lays down the ground for cancer formation”.
