I cut way down on bread. And I try to eat more organic produce, + free-range, grass-fed, wild-caught, yada yada… But… sometimes I just need CHOCOLATE! I can keep from sabotaging my health but making a quick drink out of this stuff. (Or eating as-is.)
I don’t like synthesized vitamin/mineral products. I believe we need a proper balance of naturally occurring nutrients to maintain health. A lot of studies support this! A natural mineral combination, like that found in this Mineral Whey (from grass-fed goats), is best absorbed.

We wanted to do something different for our New Deli Annual Christmas Party- there would be so many of us! So we played a new style of “Yankee Swap”. Each person had to follow specific directions- it was a blast!
Cook your bird upside-down- it won’t look as glamorous, but will be moist & tasty. Don’t like rolling out pie crust? Try pumpkin upside-down pie. More tips too- I’ve gathered ’em together…

Not to mention the frugal quality- saving money can be a driving force for me!
Those packaged beets found in the cold case, steamed & peeled, are a convenience. But they don’t beat fresh-cooked beets for flavor, color, & texture. Put the gloves on- it’ll be less messy!
Many popular breakfast places add flour to their egg dishes, knowing it helps the eggs hold their shape- to stay light, fluffy… But potato starch works too. This is a great dish for party time- easy to make!
A few tricks to remember, to absorb iron better- Vitamin C (orange juice etc.) will increase absorption, & iron from beef is especially absorbed. Maximize the potential!
