Sauerkraut Everyday?

                                Yes, I eat sauerkraut almost everyday, and of course, I’ll tell you why. Most of us have gotten out of touch with our cultural roots, but if we were to go back, most of… Read More

Gut Health Gummies

Most kids go crazy fro gummies. Unfortunately they are full of artificial flavors that have been linked to ADHD. There are now some organic options which are not horrendous, but these are actually good for you. I make these gummies with Vital Proteins Beef Gelatin. I’m sorry to those of… Read More

Morning Lemon Water

                              The importance of what you eat or drink first thing in the morning can’t be overstated.  That is because you’re breaking a fast from the night before.  Whatever you consume first, will be absorbed more… Read More

Dry Brushing

I’ve been dry brushing for many years, and I don’t go a day without it. It gets the lymphatic system going, which greatly helps the immune system, and helps you detoxify. In turn, your skin looks great. I also believe it decreases the appearance of cellulite. When the kids are… Read More

Toxin Binders

                          Charcoal and clay have been used for thousands of years for maintaining health. Animals naturally eat clay/dirt when they are sick, and to help ward off parasites. Binders are helpful for people who are susceptible to mold… Read More

Caesar Salad (Dairy Free)

Most dressings are full of low quality, carcinogenic vegetable oils, and/or dairy. In other words, inflammatory.  Whole Foods is starting to get some better options, but it’s still much healthier, and tastier to make your own. My kids love Caesar, Ranch and Balsamic the most. Balsamic is obviously easy (I… Read More

Why Use an Infrared Sauna

The best part of my day is after I get the kids to bed and I hop in our far infrared sauna at 150 degrees for 30 minutes. That’s my time to read, meditate, or watch some TV if I need some mindlessness. My not so favorite part of the… Read More

Women Bar – Not Just For Women

It’s hard to find good bar when you don’t eat gluten, dairy, or soy. So many bars have whey protein (dairy) or soy isolate which increases cancer risks, disrupts hormones, and is not good for your thyroid. Many people disagree, but I feel strongly about those risks, and I won’t… Read More

Proteolytic Enzymes

I’ve been taking proteolytic enzymes for at least 6 years, and it’s one of those things I don’t go a day without taking.  They are anti-inflammatory, and anti-cancer. They break down fibrin which is like spiderwebs in the blood that slows down blood flow. It’s also a place where cancer… Read More

Swimmer’s Ear

We wait all year for our pool to open and swim team to start, but this is the first year we’ve been faced with Swimmer’s Ear. 2/3 of these guys had it last week. We stopped eating dairy when my oldest were 4 and 2 because they kept getting ear… Read More

Paleo (Grain Free Gluten Free) Crepes

Crepes are kind of a pain in the a** because you have to make them individually, but they look cool, and taste great, and these happen to be healthy as well.  You can add any topping or filling (jam, chocolate hazelnut spread, fruit), but I really like whipped cream made… Read More

Maison Dixon Gluten Free Bakery Rice Free Options!

I’m returning to blogging after some needed down time with my 4 children, but now that my littlest is almost 3, I’m ready to get back in the game.  The only thing is, I still don’t have a lot of time, hence the new name, ‘Just A Thawt’. I have… Read More

Our Fight Against Mold Illness

Our Fight Against Mold Illness

                              I wanted to do this post about mold illness after we had conquered it, but it turns out it’s taking more time than I previously thought. So many people have been asking about it, and… Read More

2 Ingredient Creamsicles

2 Ingredient Creamsicle

This is going to be a short post because it’s a very simple, yet delicious, recipe. These really do taste like creamsicles. They are great for your immune system as well. The vitamin c from the oranges, and gut healthy coconuts with calming heart healthy fats makes this a good… Read More

Coconut Yogurt Recipe

Coconut Yogurt Recipe

Store bought non-dairy yogurt is SO disappointing! I’ve never tasted one that I liked. And even if I did like any of them, they are all so full of sugar and unnecessary crap that I don’t want in my body. So, I finally bit the bullet and decided to make… Read More

Acai Bowl

Acai Bowl

Acai bowls are everywhere lately, and they are not cheap. My son loves them so I decided to try to make them at home. As usual, it is far easier than I thought, and I wish I did it sooner. Acai is known as a superfood for good reason. They… Read More

Raw Protein Salad Wrap

Raw Protein Salad Wrap

I feel like so many raw vegan entrees involve what I call “nut meat”. They sort of try to replicate meat, and then they’re called tuna salad, or a burger etc. I really want to stay away from that because I think it sets your taste buds up for something… Read More

Raw Vegan Cream Cheese Recipe

Raw Vegan Cream Cheese

I firmly believe that dairy is one of the worst things for our bodies. It causes inflammation, often constipation, and it’s just gross to eat what is meant to be passed from a nursing mom to their offspring. Non-dairy cheeses at the grocery store are always a disappointment. They don’t… Read More

Raw Chocolate Cheesecake

Raw Chocolate Cheesecake

Every time I go to a raw food restaurant I look for the chocolate cheesecake. I love all raw desserts, but this is probably my favorite. It’s decedent, and satisfying, but still healthy so you feel energized after. I use the same crust that I use for my pumpkin pie,… Read More
