Q&A With Matt Stone

I love the picture of these sparkly ladies dancing.  They love their bodies.  And I love them!

Matt Stone wrote one of the most influential books that I have read in my lifetime.  I don’t mean overstate, as if it should also mean that much to you, too.  I simply mean that he speaks the truth.  The book is called Diet Recovery, and it’s not about new food rules or a new diet.  It’s about breaking the rules and focusing on the mechanisms and systems in the body that underlie most of our food obsessions.

Much in the same way that the Health at Every Size movement has really found the vein of truth in their approach to eating, sizism, and exercise, Diet Recovery gets to the heart of the matter.  Love your body the way it is.  Eat food and savor it!  Move around for pleasure!  Not because you “should”, but because you have a body that you appreciate and take care of.

After years of researching, both medical journals and nutrition books, Matt has pieced together the most comprehensive and realistic approach to nutrition that I have found.  You can get a copy of Diet Recovery here, which I have not only read personally, but found great success with.  I’ll be writing about my success so far in a subsequent post.

An E-Course that’s ALIVE!: Get Cultured!

Last week I posted my interview with Jenny of Nourished Kitchen, all about her fermenting e-course called Get Cultured!  One of my favorite things that she said was “Indeed, in looking at the history of fermentation, you’ll realize that there is no one right way to do things; rather, there’s many right ways to ferment foods.”  I love that!

There are only a few more days to sign up for this excellent resource, normally priced at $197.  But through 5/31, you’ll save $50 off the usual price of $197.  Click here to sign up for the class for only $147!

Why should we worry about fermenting foods?  In my mind there are two major reasons (and one minor perk!): [Read more…]

Get Cultured!: An Interview with Jenny McGruther of Nourished Kitchen

Today I have the privilege of interviewing my longtime followed and now friend, Jenny McGruther of Nourished Kitchen.  Everything on Nourished Kitchen is immaculate, rustic, gorgeous, and personally attended to by Jenny.  It is that kind of approach that makes it so easy to trust her, both when it comes to interview answers and her e-courses.

Right now Jenny has her class Get Cultured! on sale for $147, which is a $50 savings.  But hurry, it’s only good through 5/31 of this month!  Click here to see the Get Cultured! class information.

But before we get to all that, please enjoy this interview I had with Jenny yesterday.  I love what she has to say about the vitality of fermented and cultured foods! [Read more…]

Grain-Free Salted Caramel Bars

A couple of weeks ago I wrote a post outlining some of my favorite GAPS bloggers and their recipe lists, called 5 Recipe Resources for GAPS.  Then I chose a few of my favorite recipes from their lists I have already tried, and some that I want to try in the future.  Well, of course five on a list is not enough!  Here are five more blogs that I love to peruse and find GAPS and grain-free recipes, as well as gain inspiration for new recipes of my own.

Remember that I am also currently hosting the GAPS Challenge, and we just hit the halfway mark and started Week Three this Sunday.  Time flies!  You can still join the GAPS Challenge here, and you can grab a copy of the ebook here.

If you have been following Our Nourishing Roots for the last few months, then you’ll know that I have spent most of the last year on the GAPS diet.  Through taking out grains and starches, and adding in fresh-pressed juice, probiotics, and several kinds of bone & meat broths, I have achieved a better level of health.  GAPS is essentially a cleansing diet, based on traditional foods.

Lettuce Wraps with Herbed Chicken Salad & Pecans

I have been making and finding GAPS recipes for at least a year now.  GAPS is a healing protocol that uses grain- and starch-free meals, bone broths, probiotics, and detoxing to promote optimal health.  You can see a rundown of the diet here.  Today I am sharing some of my favorite sites that have provided tasty recipes and even some inspiration for my creations that I have shared here.

But first of all I can point out that you can find all of my GAPS recipes here.  So far on Our Nourishing Roots, every single recipe has been a GAPS recipes (with the exception of the Maple Oatmeal with Coconut Sprinkles, but even that one is gluten-free!)  I have also only churned out GAPS-legal REAL FOOD 101 posts up until now.  So rest assured that you have plenty to choose from here, and there are more to come!

If you have been following Our Nourishing Roots for the last few months, then you’ll know that I have spent most of the last year on the GAPS diet.  Through taking out grains and adding in fresh-pressed juice, probiotics, and several kinds of bone & meat broths, I have achieved a better level of health.  GAPS is essentially a cleansing diet, based on traditional foods.

Starting last Sunday on January 15th, we started the GAPS Challenge. Below, you can see what the GAPS Challenge is all about.  In fact, you can still join us!  Just get ready by checking out my Before I Start GAPS, What Should I Do to Prepare? post.  There are steps you can take, support you can get here, and you will know that you are not alone.  Plus there are plenty of resources these days for GAPS, including buying this ebook from my friend Cara which will walk you through the whole process and help you take charge of your health!  You can change how you feel.

REAL FOOD 101: How to Make Shellfish Stock

(To buy the REAL FOOD 101 E-book: Traditional Foods, Traditionally Prepared, click here.  Full color photos, step by step tutorials, and more.  Only $14.)

Also, this is yet another recipe for homemade broth, which is perfect timing for the readers participating in the GAPS Challenge.

When I found shrimp on sale a few weeks ago I was pretty excited because they were not peeled or de-veined yet.  What?!  I know that it is a little bit cumbersome to peel and de-vein shrimp, but it is worth it to have the shells leftover from peeling so you can make a flavorful shrimp stock.  I like to have shrimp stock around for making seafood soups and stews, or maybe even a flavorful risotto or reduction sauce.

And of course, you can also use lobster shells, or other shellfish shells to make this stock.  Using fresh shellfish tastes far superior to any fish stocks that you can purchase at the store.
