Salmon Head Stock for Strong Bones

fish-stock

Salmon heads are packed with tender meat and fat along the jawbone. They are especially prized for making fish stock as a base for soup of all kinds and contain vitamin A, Omega-3, iron, zinc, and calcium.

I was apprehensive to make salmon head stock. Though I had experience with chicken and other meat stocks, I’d never made fish stock and imagined the whole house smelling ‘fishy’.

Tips for Making Bubbly Jelly 💜

See the bubbles?!
Check out the bubbles!

Regular jelly isn’t ‘allowed’ on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D); which recommends to avoid sugar (except lakanto, stevia, ecobloom) until your gut is in a better place. Until then it’s best to kefir jelly with probiotics to reduce the concentrated fruit sugar. Your belly might thank you 🙂 Here’s my recipe for bubbly blueberry jelly 

Over the years I’ve learned a thing or two about making probiotic-rich jelly taste good and want to share my tips for getting good results every time:

Traditional Milk Kefir: Recipe

This traditional form of milk kefir has 2 ingredients …. milk and starter, that’s it. Straight up, simple stuff. I was introduced to kefir while on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D) to heal chronic yeast overgrowth. This kefir reduced my cravings, cleared my acne, and took away my endless stomach bloating.

My husband, who hails from Czech Republic, says he drank milk kefir growing up and that this traditional food is still all the rage in Europe; along with cultured butter and creme fraiche.

How My Family Eats Liver

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Most of us know that eating liver is a good thing to do. We’ve heard rumors that this animal organ comes with benefits, hits many nails at once, and is especially beneficial for women.

I was raised in a suburb near Boston with limited access or exposure to traditional foods. There were definitely no cows grazing by the side of the road. We kept chickens and a garden though and my mother often fried up liver with bacon ‘n onions, which continues to be the only way I can eat liver to this day. That right there is the extent of my experience with liver, that is until I became a responsible, conscientious adult seeking ways to nourish my body 😏

Skiing on The Body Ecology Diet

Skiing on The Body Ecology Diet

My husband and I went to Attitash this holiday as the kids were with their dad this year and we had the freedom to do whatever we wanted!! Though I’m not hot on skiing, I am BIG on sweating in the sauna, back trail xc skiing, and catching up with my husband slash ski enthusiast for delicious meals.

We rented a studio at the base of slopes that had a kitchenette – fridge and all – and that right there made traveling on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) much easier. As many of you know, I camp alot in the summer with just a tent and 2-stove burner, so this kind of travel is a luxury 😊

10 Foods That Helped My Hyperemesis Gravidarum

There is no one way to prevent hyperemesis gravidarum, a.k.a. HG or morning sickness x 1,000. At least, not that I know of and I have looked high ‘n low to end this horrible misery. I have read every book on the topic and spoke to women who have survived this debilitating nausea and vomiting … including myself who suffered HG 3 times. What is HG? A rare prenatal condition. Duchess Kate had it.

During each of my pregnancies, I made a promise to myself that if I survived the living hell of HG then I would help others get through it as well. So, here I am. More about my story here

I hope the list of foods below help lessen the degree in which you are affected by HG.
