I know that blog title builds up your expectations quite a bit. It should. Because this really is the most amazing Paleo gingerbread ever. I developed this recipe myself because I love gingerbread so much. And I love it even more in the form of a loaf when I can slice it and smother it […] . . .


   I’m not sure how this happened but everywhere I turn there are remnants of a humanely butchered animal. Now, before this comes off as morbid or disrespectful, this post is about eating the whole animal in order to reduce wastefulness and maximize nourishment. There’s just no gentle way of saying there are bits and […] . . .


   When we don’t have vegetables coming out of the garden that I can work with, I generally buy quite a bit of produce every week. There are the typical onions, garlic, and carrots for flavoring and making soups. There are salad vegetables and cooking greens for their deep nutritional profile. And then there is […] . . .


Let’s start with a short quiz (an excerpt from the introduction of Diane Sanfilippo’s 21-Day Sugar Detox guidebook): Do you crave sugar all day, every day–or even a few times a week?
