Not Ready To Die: Preparing for Coronavirus

The last time I was this concerned about coming down with a debilitating health condition was in October 2018 when I missed two menstrual periods and felt certain I was pregnant. Maybe I was or maybe it was the hormonal part of me speaking. Either way for a few weeks I was concerned about getting hyperemesis gravidarum again. I’ve had this rare prenatal condition (affects 1% pregnant women) three times …. each time was pure hell.

Keeping Kids “Sugar-Free” at School

Up until my oldest started kindergarten, he had limited exposure to refined sugar. We were an organic, homemade kind of family that consciously avoided sugar, artificial colors, gluten, and pasteurized dairy.

Most of our friends ate how we did and if we went somewhere serving food we couldn’t eat, I checked beforehand to see what we could bring. No matter what food we ate, or didn’t eat, I think its important to feel included; especially for kids.

My Healing Journal: Candida Diagnosis

Journal Entry on September 9th 2010

Today, I found out I have Candida, a.k.a. yeast overgrowth. I’m not to surprised seeing that I have all the symptoms (i.e. cravings, vaginal yeast infections) and the fact it was my idea to ask my Naturopath for test. “Aren’t I going through enough already?” I ask myself. I recently initiated a difficult divorce, started a graduate program, and both my boys start a new school this week.

Why I Decided to Try Transcendental Meditation (TM)

I began Transcendental Meditation (TM) in January of 2018. I first heard about this meditation technique when a friend mentioned it might help prevent the panic attacks I was prone to. At that time I was willing to try anything … except take more medication.

My Raw Chocolate Recipe 🐷

I like my chocolate sugar-free, raw, and preferably in the shape of a piggie. All of which can be hard to find at a cost I want to pay. So, I got in the kitchen to create a recipe with all the benefits of raw cocoa beans without the sugar.

Basic White Frosting (gluten, dairy, refined sugar free)

This basic white frosting is easy to make and even smoother to top your cake with. I’ve made this many times for potlucks and gatherings for a dairy-free and refined sugar-free dessert. The recipe is a work in progress but I like it enough to share here 🌺

Coconut Roll-Out Cookies for The Body Ecology Diet

Most coconut flour cookies taste like cardboard and so I was reluctant to create a recipe for one. Yet one day I did and am pleasantly surprised at how they turned out …. they roll out like a dream and are as moist as I could get without the dough falling apart.

This all around versatile cookie is great for anyone healing on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) and need to avoid grain, refined sugar, and flour. If you are unable to eat eggs, check out my almond cookies.
