Honey-Lime Chicken & Strawberry Salad

It’s been a chilly winter here in Atlanta, but with spring around the corner my body has been craving crisp and cool salads. If I had to calculate how many salads I’ve eaten over the past 10 years, it would look something like this: 10(365 x 2). Now I’m not going to do that math,…

Cherry-Ginger Gummies

Gelatin is one of the most healing foods you can include in your diet, due to its amino acid content. Including it it doesn’t have to be “all bone broth, all the time” though. Gummies are a yummy, fun way to get in gut-healing nutrients, with almost endless variations you can dream up. I dreamed…

Is A Healing Crisis Really Healing?

The Theory In theory, a “healing crisis” is when your symptoms get worse before they get better, and this is a sign that you are healing. It’s also called a Jarisch-Herxheimer reaction or “die-off” (indicating the die-off of pathogenic organisms in the body.) The History Where did this theory come from? In the late 1800’s/early…

Strawberry Fool 900x1350

Thyme-Scented Strawberry Fool

A fool, in culinary terms, is a classic English dessert made by stewing fruit and folding it into sweetened whipped cream. Though originally made with gooseberries, this works well with pretty much any fruit and I don’t think you could ever go wrong with strawberries. It’s name stems from the French ‘fouler’, meaning to crush,…

The Benefits of A Regular Walking Routine

  Before I got sick, I was an extremely active person, but I almost never walked anywhere. That may sound strange—instead, I chose to ride my bike to work and run for exercise. If you asked me why I never walked, I’d say it seemed like such a waste of time. Two adjectives that described…

Citrus Braised Lamb Shoulder

As much as I love beef, sometimes I get a hankering for red meat with a little more flavor, and lamb almost always does the trick. While a lot of people are used to lamb chops and leg of lamb, I have fallen in love with braising lamb shoulder. This method produces some delicious vegetables, as…

Roasted Vegetables with a Salsa Verde

I love roasted vegetables, they taste so scrumptious and what’s more they pretty much look after themselves in the oven, leaving you to concentrate on other things. This recipe is a good assortment of colours, textures and flavours but the real beauty is that it can also be completely dependent on seasonal availability, or what…
