simple . affordable . delicious

quick whole-food snacks/soups, and free wellness programs . . . part 1 of 4

When your kids open the cupboard looking for a snack, what will they find?   I get asked all the time, “What can I do to replace my junk-food snacks?”   We want something that’s good for us, sure!   But we want it to taste good and be easy, too.   We were all […]

on dehydrators, from an eater of Cheetos and Sweetarts

My good friend Michelle loves the Atkins Diet (has adopted it as an apparently permanent lifestyle, in fact).   She in no way embraces (or even acknowledges the benefits of) my lifestyle.   But I did convince her that she needs a dehydrator so she can soak/germinate her raw almonds that she just got in […]

High-nutrition food storage

People in my community are dedicated to storing a year’s supply of food (myself included), and we are blessed to have many preparedness experts around us.   I struggled for years to achieve a food supply that we would actually eat, that wouldn’t go to waste because it’s so nutritionally inferior or has such a short […]

Good, Better, Best . . . Part III

I have more stuff to say (and photos to blog) about traveling and eating right, but by request, I interrupt: Dear GreenSmoothieGirl, will you please continue the good, better, best discussion, specifically covering pasta, seasonings, nut butters, and fats? Pasta: white-flour pasta doesn’t belong in the kitchen of a health-conscious cook. The more coarsely you […]

natural remedies for ear infections

I just met this cute blonde mom named Mary Jane, who was telling my friend about her little boy’s chronic ear infection that multiple courses of antibiotics just can’t eliminate.   She was saying that her son’s “cold” just keeps going—six weeks now of constant, thick mucous. I sometimes just can’t believe that no pediatrician […]

gardening does so much more than provide food

Is there anything better than garden tomatoes?   Twenty years ago, we used to make my sister-in-law, when she was a college student, sing a John Denver song before we gave her any of our garden tomatoes: “Only two things that money can’t buy, and that’s true love and home-grown tomatoes!” Yesterday, Apr. 5, I […]
