Real Food

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

Pityriassis Rosa

The short answer to the question is I don’t know. Apparently I’m not the only one that doesn’t know, the medical community does not know. Pityriasis rosea is a skin rash. The rash basically affects the back, the torso and may spread to the arms legs and chest. The initial outbreak looks like a circular… Read More

Heavy Cream, Really?

Heavy Cream

The other morning I ran out of creamer for my coffee so I took a quick run to the local Hannaford’s grocery store. I usually buy heavy cream produced by Hudson Valley Fresh but Hannaford’s didn’t have any. I didn’t feel like traipsing across town to track down Hudson Valley Fresh (not too many stores… 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

Grass Fed Beef

It’s funny how things change. Not too long ago I was attempting to transition to a raw food diet. While I still see some merits to eating raw, I realize 100% raw is not for me. I think I captured my true mindset in my vegetarian, vegan or whole food post. As I was roaming… Read More

Eating Real Popcorn

Popcorn

OK, I’ve tried microwave popcorn, Jiffy Pop popcorn and air popped popcorn. I’ve got to say, hands down, that the best popcorn that I’ve had recently is Mr. Popping Cob’s popping corn. It caught my eye as I was browsing the shelves of our local farm’s store. It was a miniature cob of corn with… Read More

Week 3 or 4 (?) Update

Calendar

I’ve lost track of time. I’ve been having such a blast with this real food journey that I forgot to update my stats. Oh well, the heck with stats. I know I’ve lost some weight, increased my energy and drink coffee once a week (it’s a Sunday ritual in my house). The convenient one-stop-shopping days… Read More

Beef

Several hours ago Associated Press reported that Tyson has recalled 131,000 pounds of ground beef because it was contaminated with E. Coli. This on the heels of the cantaloupe recall issued by Jensen Farms a week or so ago because of the deadly Listeria bacteria. We’ve had recalls before and there will be more to… Read More

Keeping it Realistic

Keeping it Real

It’s human nature to go overboard. Well, it might not be human nature, but it’s my nature. Knowing that I have this tendency to enjoy too much of a good thing, I have to keep my real food adventure in check. Here’s the Story: My daughter told me late at night that she had invited… Read More
