Cooking

egg sandwich

I realize that I’m really enjoying food freedom. It took me several years (more like decades) to get here, but it sure feels good being here. I didn’t realize my current state of food freedom until my daughter came back for an extended visit. You see, she’s suffering from a case of bacterial imbalance in… Read More

Lentil Sprouts

One of the arguments against eating real organic food is that it’s expensive and requires too much preparation. Personally, I’d rather spend the money and time preparing food in my own home instead of suffering the accumulated effects of eating processed junk foods. The accumulated effects will land you in the doctor’s office if not… Read More

More Things about Bone Broth

Bone Broth

A little over a month ago I made my first batch of bone broth. Since then I make sure to keep bones brewing daily. When I finish with one batch, I get rid of disintegrating bones and add one or two new bones in place of the old ones and start another batch. Making Bone… Read More

Wonderful Bone Broth

Crock Pot

I can’t believe how wasteful I’ve been over the years. I recently discovered bone broth. Maybe what I should say is I’ve re-discovered bone broth and cringe when I think about the amount of bones I threw away. Childhood Memories As a kid, I remembered my mother saving bones after Thanksgiving, Christmas or any other… Read More

Lower Carb Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving

I’d like to say we enjoyed a low-carb Thanksgiving, but I’d be telling a halftruth. Actually, we enjoyed a lower carb Thanksgiving. I modified the ingredients on some foods and didn’t cook others to reduce the carb load. However, not everyone at my Thanksgiving table is on a low-carb eating plan so I made a… Read More

Enjoying the Low Carb Life

Burrata

Since reducing my carb intake I feel great! I no longer think of this as a dietary change. I think of it as a way of life. Just like some people don’t eat radishes or broccoli or liver, I choose not to eat foods with a high glycemic index. In other words, in general I… Read More

Salty Turkey Cold Cuts

Sara Lee Turkey

I stopped by the grocery store last night to pickup cold cuts for my daughter’s school lunch. She told me she was tired of peanut butter and apple sandwiches (I was also tired of making them). It was late and the cold cut counter was closed so I picked up a package of Sara Lee… Read More

No Thanks, I’ll Have Butter

Butter gets a bad rap, but in my book I’ll pick butter over margarine any day. I used to buy into the ‘margarine is better than butter’ hype, but no more.  Trans fat free and low in cholesterol spreads such as Promise and I Can’t Believe it’s Not Butter, Country Crock and a host of… Read More

Last night I wanted pizza, but I didn’t want to order pizza because I didn’t want the traditional white dough pizza, or the traditional thin crust white dough pizza or the Sicilian sliced white dough pizza. Do you notice a reoccurring theme here? I didn’t want the white dough pizza. I was lazy and hungry… Read More

In today’s day and age with prices rising with no end in sight, people may accidentally start eating healthier. It’s cheaper and healthier to cook from scratch. Every cloud has a silver lining and maybe a healthier society is the silver lining on this cloud of increased cost of living. Although it is not absolutely… Read More
