Nope, I can't stand kefir either unless it's in a smoothie. I made a smoothie once that didn't have quite enough of something to overcome the sour, and I actually spit it out and dumped the rest. I thought it had gone bad. But I'm thinking maybe it's an acquired taste -- I recently noticed that I don't taste the fishiness of my Blue Ice CLO anymore. When I first started taking it, it was kinda disgusting. Lately I find I actually like it and would take more! So maybe kefir also will grow on me...

Egg yolks make ice cream creamier! Yum!

HerthElde Yeast/Candida are one of the various and vast organisms that inhibit the body. Keeping it in balance is key to healthy flora. Keeping the amount minimal in the body is important as well as maintaining a Ph that is more hospitable to healthy organisms. Ridding the body of Candida/Yeast entirely would bring the body out of balance as well.

Just about every ice cream recipe we've made is custard based (several yolks). They have been awesome. Cooks Illustrated has several good recipes. We've modified the peach one for bananas--Yummmmy.

For those who haven't been able to stomach liver yet, the chicken liver pate recipe in NT rocks!!

I make icecream sort of based on the recipe for vanilla icecream in NT. I mix a pint of raw cream with 2 raw egg yolks & about 1/2 cup of raw honey or maple syrup. If I have it, I put in some vanilla. I'm being a bit tight with the eggs right now as it is almost the middle of winter & my chooks are hardly laying at all. If it was spring or summer, I'd probably use 4 egg yolks.

I've been making brouvada(sp?) or italian pickled turnips. Basically matchstick slices of raw turnip or swede covered in water with a touch of cider vinegar & left for a week. Not sure if it's lacto fermented or not but they are very tasty.

ANyone here make sausages ? I've got access to a heap of cheap organic grass fed beef mince & need ideas as to what to do with it.

Well, I think next time I make ice cream, I will try adding one egg yolk. If we like it, I will add two the following time. Don't think I will fill in the in-laws on that one. They would freaking flip out if they knew we were eating raw egg products!

OM, I've never made sauages, but if you make them, please post about it. I, too, have access to plenty of grass-fed ground beef, and would love to make my own.

A friend and I made ricotta cheese a couple of weeks ago. It turned out very nicely. A question, though. How can it be raw cheese if you have to heat it to 200`? All the recipes I've seen have said to heat it that high.

A staple in my son's diet right now is a "custard drink." When making custard he wanted to drink it before baking it, so hey, why not. Most people know it as "egg nog," but to my son it's "custard." The eggs come from our own hens. I don't use any that have been cracked, soiled, or are older than a day or two.

Speaking of ice cream, I want to try goat's milk ice cream for my son's #2 bday.

BTW-I am still losing weight and eating well! I think I have lost 8 pounds so far. I am about to start AF and I was 2 pounds less this morning! I have not been formally excerizing either...But I have been painting and moving while chasing a toddler which I think counts for something!

RAW (grass-fed) BUTTER Q- Should I stock up this fall and freeze it? How long will it last and do I just place it in the fridge to defrost?

I am hoping my high vitamin CLO will get here today...

OK, I'm fresh out of ideas (and brain cells) at the moment. If I have to think, my head is going to explode. We'e having a BAD day here.

Can anyone give me some quick, easy, non-sugary snack ideas for kids? Things you can buy at the store that are at least decent if not NT-compatible?

I swear I'm going nuts.

Subbing.

Also, did anyone hear the microbe/gut story on NPR yesterday? I had company and a full kitchen and so couldn't catch any of the details, and I haven't had time to listen to it on my computer, but here's the link in case anyone is interested:

greenpastures.com isint coming up for me.

Where can I purchase good butter oil? Any suggestions please? I also use the NN CLO but plan on getting Blue ice next time, hopefully my HFS sells it, if not, where is everyone getting their blue ice online please? Thanks!

I'm trying Kimchee for second time, last time I went out of town and it floated to the top of the brine and had...uh...critters in it. BLAHHHHHHH! All my organic homegrown radish's TRASHED!

The yogert dough was wall paste, not edible pizza crust wise, I thought my DH was going to strangle me! LOL But I broke up the second cooked crust and DS nibbles on it! Better than Goldfish crackers I say! LOL

Good health everyone.

I make a recipe of the yogut dough and add 1/2 - 1 cup of rapadura and roll it thin, cut it into crackes, and bake. It makes great crackers for the kids.

Kerry Ann -- when you say no sugar, do you mean nothing that breaks down as sugar? I know you're starting on a no-grain diet for candida, so are you looking for candida-friendly snacks or just grain-free snacks? Can your children eat honey?

No, just no sugar, but honey is fine. We haven't started SCD yet. I haven't had time to wrap my head around it and understand it, much less figure ou how to implement it. I'm so overwhelmed right now with other stuff I could scream. I'll start looking into SCD in a week or two when things calm down.

I'm just looking for any healthy, NT-friendly snacks for kids in general.

These are a bit on the sweet side:

Almonds balls with coconut oil (courtesy of firefaery). Make almond butter. Gently melt coconut oil. Mix together. Put in fridge or freezer until is sets up a bit. Add raisins or nuts or whatever. Make into balls. Roll in coconut or sunflower seeds or nothing. Put into freezer. Eat when set. I fly by the seat of my pants on proportions.

Custard drink as I reported today. 1/2 cup milk gently warmed. 1 egg yolk. Add tsp honey to yolk, beat. Add vanilla to milk. Add milk to yolk, stir together. (AKA egg nog)

Merengue cookies. Use egg whites left from custard drink. Whip in mixer. Add maple syrup when whites form peaks. Sample. Plop on cookie sheet. Dry out in oven on low temp. Use parchment paper if you want to avoid a mess on the cookie sheet.

Nut bars. Use a mix of nuts and dried fruit held together with egg whites. Spread on pan, dry in oven, break into pieces. If you don't use enough egg white, you'll end up with granola which is also a good snack.
