Welcome! Thank you for visiting. For the time being, I am taking a hiatus from updating this site. (You can read more about it here.) Please join me on Facebook or Pinterest for more content or to ask questions.

Do you know that the National Cancer Institute predicts that one out of every two Americans born today will be diagnosed with some form of cancer? Or that the CDC tells us that 5.2 million American children have ADHD, and that number is skyrocketing? Almost 10% of all kids in the U.S. have asthma, and at least 13% have one or more developmental disability. Obesity rates are through the roof (1/3 of adults and 20% of U.S. children), as are the rates of related diseases like diabetes.

It doesn't have to be this way. But modern conventional ideas about nutrition and wellness have failed us, and they are killing our children!

This site is about looking back at how healthy societies once ate, and sharing great recipes for Real Food. It's about preventing disease, instead of prescribing something to treat symptoms and make some pharmaceutical company rich. It's about removing toxins from our food and homes, and taking charge of our health and our families.

I want to live - and teach my children to live - a long healthy life, full of energy and joy.

I guess I’m on a roll with soups and stews. This is one my family loves. It’s super quick, cheap, makes a lot and freezes well. It comes from one of my absolute favorite cookbooks, Simple Food {for winter}. Our bodies crave seasonal eating and this cookbook makes it so easy (and kid-friendly). It’s available in hard or soft copy. Check it out!

Cheeseburger Soup

*1 cup diced carrots (about 2)
*1 cup diced celery (about 4 stalks)
*1 cup diced onion (about 1 medium)
*2 pounds grass-fed ground beef
*2 pounds potatoes or turnips, diced
*4 cups homemade stock
*1/3 cup organic ketchup
*1/4 cup organic mustard
*Sea salt and pepper to taste

For serving/ enzyme pairing: Grated raw cheddar cheese (about 2 cups), creme fraiche (recipe in book!) or raw sour cream, lacto-fermented dill pickles, raw onions

1. Place a Dutch oven over medium heat. Once hot add ground beef and cook with sea salt and pepper until well browned. Add diced onions, carrot, celery and potato (or turnips) and season with salt.

2. Add stock to pot and bring to a simmer. Cover and simmer 10-15 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Remove from heat. Stir in ketchup and mustard and taste for seasoning, adding salt and pepper if necessary.

3. Serve bowls topped with a big dollop of creme fraiche, raw cheese and chopped pickles. Other burger toppings such as bacon and onions are also delicious.

Do you go on a soup kick in the winter? What are some of your favorite warm-up meals?
