Problems with Whole Foods and other Health Food Stores

I love Whole Foods.

I love the experience of shopping there, the smells of wonderful foods, the array of fresh produce, all the local products they feature.  I look forward to going there every other Friday morning to buy the vast majority of my food (except for beef, which I buy from a farm, and produce in the summer).  I almost always get a salad or something for lunch before I leave. 

Recipe Collection: Sun-Dried Tomato Sauce

I love sun-dried tomatoes.  Once I had a large glass jar of them packed in olive oil (which is how you should buy them if at all possible) that I needed to use up.  It was summer and I had fresh tomatoes, too.  I created this sauce and tossed it with some angel hair pasta.  It’s a light, flavorful and delicious sauce!

Recipe Collection: Chicken in Cream Sauce

I invented this one night when I was craving a creamy, saucy chicken.  It’s delicious!  It can be modified to be GAPS-friendly by using ghee instead of butter and coconut milk, and simply uncovering to reduce the sauce (before adding milk) instead of using flour.  Serve it over rice, mashed potatoes, or, for GAPS, steamed cauliflower.

Recipe Collection: Orange Sherbet

Since we’ve been no-sugar, I’ve been seeking some type of “dessert” I can eat. I tried a super simple recipe for orange sherbet and it was “okay.” I decided to scrap that and try again. The second attempt is what I’ve posting for you today, and it is excellent! In fact, it tastes like an Orange Julius to me! So for those of you missing fast food…make some of this!!

Recipe Collection: Stuffed Mushrooms

When I was a teenager, we went to the Olive Garden to celebrate someone’s birthday and had stuffed mushrooms. I created this recipe after that experience in an attempt to copy those mushrooms. I later adapted it once we were dairy-free and it’s just as good that way. My father requested this dish at a recent holiday, it’s so good.

Making Jerky

Jerky!

This is a really great snack for us on our new diet. But when you buy it, it’s expensive, made from factory-farmed meat (often, not always…but if not it’s even more expensive!), and can contain sodium nitrite. No thanks!

Our Story: Part 2

art 2 of “Our Story.” Based on the comments on the first half, I must ask all of you to read this with an open mind. Please also note that is ONLY our experience and we are not recommending anything to anyone else. We welcome honest questions and differing opinions, but please refrains from insults and personal attacks. We are all adults here (I hope) and need to behave as such. Thanks!

Our Story: Part 1

The first in my series on Godly relationships and family life. I thought I would start by sharing our story with you -- how Ben and I met and got married.

I’m Kate, mama to 5 and wife to Ben.  I love meeting new people and hearing their stories.  I’m also a big fan of “fancy” drinks (anything but plain water counts as ‘fancy’ in my world!) and I can’t stop myself from DIY-ing everything.  I sure hope you’ll stick around so I can get to know you better!
