Hemp ‘Scents’

I cannot drink milk. Therefore, I cannot have alfredo sauce. This has lead me on a quest. A quest that has been about a year and a half long. Milk, for me, is an enemy. It cause agonizing pain and horrible skin issues. The reason for this, I believe, is a lactose intolerance and an […]

Leftovers

The feasting season has ended. Now we have to deal with the leftovers. It’s a little like life. When we are young we have cupboards that are filled with wonderful, delicious dishes. All the food of our life is rampant with a rainbow of colour and a full spectrum of texture. Smells, sights, everything is […]

Waiting for dandelions

The most loved to be hated baneful blessing; the dandelion. Taraxacum officinale – official remedy for disorders (greek-taraxos(disorder), akos(remedy) and officinale(official species for use in medicine)   As I sit here, in the middle of April with four to eight feet of snow in the yard, I see my green finches are beginning to don […]

It’s a date!!!!!

In the grand scheme of things a dessert is not a very important thing in life.  Unless, of course, if you cannot have any.  I am not fussy on sweet tastes.  I am a more spicy, sour person and I am very happy with that.  The sweetest thing on my weekly menu is a Honeycrisp […]

Settling into the Season

    “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” ― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables   So am I, Lucy.  So am I. October is my favourite month.  Then again, whichever month it is is always my favourite.  I am one of those annoying people who settle into the season.  There […]

Picking Raspberrries

So…..here, where I live, we have left the lazy, hazy days of summer and have begun our gentle stroll into autumn.  Hence, I am writing again.  There seem to be more rainy days than not and I am finding all of my summer flora and fauna maturing into seeds, grains and berries.  On the cusp […]

WTF – What’s That Food

I am at a total loss.  I was going through my food file and I have lists.  Lists of food that cause cancer.  Lists of GMO food.  Lists of  non-GMO food.  List of ingredients you should eat.  Lists of ingredients you should not eat.  The benefits of green food, benefits of red food, benefits of […]

Fiddling around

Now that spring has arrived in eastern Canada we are fortunate to have the luxury of fiddlehead season.  Last night I was fortunate enough to have been blessed with a fresh spring trout and a grand mess of fiddleheads.  These little green treasures are a wonderful spring tonic.  Historically they were boiled with cattail root […]

Heart Disease

This is an article I found.  He concentrates on heart disease and diabetes but we can apply his theory to ALL common diseases of the day.  It is a good read and hopefully will help you while you are travelling through the grocery store.     http://www.sott.net/article/242516-Heart-Surgeon-Speaks-Out-On-What-Really-Causes-Heart-Disease.    

Food Scents

This is a place where we will discuss food as an holistic part of healing disease.  I do not believe in ‘superfood’.  I believe that incorporating whole, raw, organic food  into your diet can aid in a better sense of well-being.  This will include mindful preparation techniques and recipes.  Suggestions emailed to me will always […]
