My mangled face: a postscript about coconut oil

Gluten Free Live Granola & Breakfast

When I first got the recipes for the 12 steps, I was a little disappointed that the Live Granola contained oatmeal (my wife is gluten sensitive). I know many on this forum avoid gluten, so I thought I’d post the granola recipe we developed, as well as our favorite breakfast. Hope you enjoy them as […]

raw almonds and 15 other items in upcoming group buy

Newsflash, this blog was hacked into late last week, and I’m sorry you couldn’t read or post comments. It took my webmasters a little while to figure it out, THANKS CHRIS AND RITESH!, but it’s fixed now. The downside is, everyone has to re-register and get a new password. Sorry about that.

a bunch of random things

Locals in Utah County, at Sunflower Market right now, whole pitted dates in the bins are $2.79/lb., good price.   I love their produce, too, by the way (the candy section and the fact that they sell pork is really inexplicable, but . . . whatever).   Organic apples continue to be $0.99 at Good […]

By following Robyn’s recommendation, which I could not believe at first but made a decision to give it a try, I lost weight without trying, and my knees and shoulders stopped aching.

How much fat should I eat?

Reflecting on nutrition, food storage, and hard economic times

What a year this has been.   The much-predicted failure of  American investment banking  has come to pass,  our nation’s net worth has plummeted precipitously, and we’ve started into what promises to be a long recession.   I just came across this quote by a wise man named Joseph Smith, from 175 years ago: “Our […]
