Soft Serve Vanilla Ice Cream

Make Raw Vanilla Ice Cream

Rene and I recently bought an ice cream maker, and we’ve been so excited about it.  Part of the reason we bought the machine was so we can determine exactly what goes into the ice cream we eat, but also so we can make pastured raw ice cream, which isn’t just really good tasting, but…

Share an Awesome Video About Why to Choose a Nutrient Dense (Real Food) Diet

I am absolutely loving the first lesson of Ann Marie’s Surf & Turf Online Cooking Class!  As a reminder, the class is teaching me how to cook all sorts of grass-fed/pastured/free-range/wild meats and seafood.  The first lesson includes this awesome video about why health is declining in the United States and how what we eat…

Make Soaked Pancakes

The latest thing I learned from my real food cooking eCourses was to make soaked pancakes.  These are really similar to regular pancakes, except that there is a soaking period to help neutralize the phytic acid in the flour.  As a reminder, phytic acid is an anti-nutrient that prevents our guts from properly absorbing the…

Bake Soaked Muffins

My third eCourse lesson I tried was to bake soaked muffins.  What are soaked muffins?  They’re a baked good that has gone through the process of soaking in order to neutralize the phytic acid in the flour.  As a reminder, phytic acid is present in seeds, nuts and grains and it is an anti-nutrient that…

Enjoying a glass of raw whole milk in the morning.

Drink Raw Milk

For most of my life, I have hated milk.  It tasted absolutely horrible to me.  I never liked it, and I have many memories of not finishing the cup of milk my mom wanted me to drink with breakfast each day.  The beverage simply grossed me out, and I would refuse to drink it unless…


Recognize the Need for Real Food and Real Health

Once upon a time, I was a nerdy high school student.  My life was all about acing classes and filling my schedule with extracurriculars that looked good on college applications.  I slept little, ate a lot, and had little to no time to do anything else.  It wasn’t the most health conscious thing for me…

Soak and Dehydrate Raw Nuts

My second recipe to try for my eCourses was to soak and dehydrate some raw nuts.  From my eCourse, I learned that raw nuts are an awesome source of digestive enzymes, which you can’t get from a pasteurized or roasted nut.  Our bodies can create two enzymes: digestive and metabolic, so if we stock up…

Cook a Soaked Whole Grain

My first hands on lesson from one of my eCourses on how to cook the nutrient dense way is to cook a soaked whole grain.  The main recipe we were given was to cook brown rice, but since Rene is currently cutting out rice from his diet to test a food sensitivity, I decided to cook…

Take an eCourse on How to Cook the Nourishing Traditions (or Nutrient Dense) Way

I am taking two eCourses on how to cook the Nourishing Traditions way (aka real food), or as I like to call it, the nutrient dense way.  The class is about teaching how to cook the traditional way that our ancestors used to when they prepared their foods, based on the Weston A….
