you’re not sick – you’re starving

Bet that got your attention.  It sure did get mine, when I saw it as the title of an online article. How can that be, you ask?  We live in one of the richest nations on the planet, we throw away (to our shame) great quantities of uneaten food.  Most of us (and by no […]

all soup, all the time

This is a reprint of a post from early 2014.  I got inspired to share it with you because I’m just making my first ever batch of nettle soup.  That’s right, soup made from that plant that stings and causes a rash.  Why?  Because it’s nutrient dense, and supports the Liver and Lungs which is […]
