    I am getting ready to start a Paleo diet, my blood was drawn to show results of before and after. Also, physical features are going to be shown... My challenge is I am addicted to sugar and I have a major sweet tooth and I love carbs. From my understanding from Dr. Wolfson I will be eating...

    My baby boy is 7 months old. We have been very slowly introducing solids into his diet for the past few weeks. Ripe banana, avocado, and egg yolk so far. I intend on introducing fermented foods such as saurkraut, yogurt, kefir and kombucha, but I'm not sure when to do so. He had to be on IV...

    Hi. Please help if you can! I moved from the West Coast to the East coast a few months ago. In Washington, I was fermenting regularly (cabbage, cucumbers, fruit butters, salsa). Now that I've moved I haven't had a single ferment turn out right. Is there a difference in bacteria? I recently...

    Hey! Long ago, in a kingdom far, far away... I made yogurt via propane oven pilot. Life was good. I again have a a nice warm pilot, in my tiny little oven. I want to yogurt again! Buuuuuuut... the rules of the game have changed. A few people in the house should not have dairy. Or soy...

    I'm copying the notice I just got and it comes up tomorrow morning. We knew it would be short notice but I didn't think it would be this short This Amendment is up on WEDNESDAY March 26 AM. Please follow the "slip" procedure below, and pass it on!! As of now, the count is 11 opponents, 10...

    This may not be in the right spot, but I figured since it involves traditional food, it might be a good place to start. (And it seems like there used to be a more appropriate place to post this, but I can't seem to find it now). I've been wanting to do the GAPS diet for a long while. I believe...

    ????? I live about an hour away, but we come into the city a few times a month. We could meet up just about anywhere, as we pretty much end up covering "town" from north to south, and east to west, before we're done. LOL

    Hi all, I usually make chicken broth with my chicken carcasses after we've eaten the meat. However, I can't keep up with demand for broth that way, so I've purchased organic chicken backs and necks to make broth with. Question: Do I roast the chicken first (as I would with beef bones) or do I...

    Hey guys.. I'm trying to find some good, unpasteurized, raw milk that I can buy locally. Currently we have been getting by with the store bought pasteurized stuff.. I'm buying Organic Valley brand in hopes that their grass fed cattle somewhat overcomes the fact that it still has to be...

    Hi all, I am trying to clear some space in my freezer & I'm wondering if I can throw all my beef & pork bones into one pot to make broth or if that's a bad idea? Thanks!

    Hoping some of you wise mamas can help me-- I've had a recurrent yeast infection for the past few months (sorry if that's TMI for a food forum....) and am trying desperately to treat it naturally (I've already done 3 rounds of monistat....) I've been drinking lots of homemade kombucha and...

    Hi all you wise mamas, I need some serious straight teeth help. My ds is 11 months old, and his teeth are coming out CROOKED! He's my 4th baby, I know what straight baby teeth look like, and this is not it. I know I have not been eating well - my fault - but now I need help to turn things...

    Is there any valid reason against pressure canning stock/bone broth? I've asked several of the large blog writers why they advise against canning it, and the only reason they give is "because it wasn't traditionally done." Once in a while someone will say it's because it destroys the broth's...

    I have nothing locally available so I'm looking preferably heritage breed pigs, pastured/free range, organically fed, drug-free pork products, especially bacon. Currently I dont eat pork because I havent been able to find good enough quality. Obviously it will need to be shipped to me, I'm...

    First the good news. I took my 6yo off gluten 5 months ago. That one simple change has completely eliminated the hyperactivity and reduced his autism symptoms by roughly 80%. Last week we noticed that the screaming, inconsolable meltdowns he's always had, have stopped entirely. Now if he...

    I am rather proud of what I've done with this so far! Yeah yeah I know I should be "beyond" bread, and just have a veggie omelette for breafast. But sometimes nothing is as satisfying as a thick slice of bread with butter and honey in the morning, and the kids love it, and my DH is so glad he...

    I started replacing my non-stick pots last year with stainless steel, then I ran out of steam and money. So I'd like to replace my other cookware with better/healthier alternatives, but I'm not sure what to get... any suggestions for brands or particular dishes/items? Here are the things I...

    So I've always wondered about something: Most of us here know how rich in calcium bone broth is. Now in most of my reading I've read that calcium inhibits iron absorption. So it would seem that cooking meat in my bone broth and eating them together is a bad idea, as the calcium from the bone...
