Full Disclosure – This Is Me – The MS Battle

This isn’t a typical post for me. I don’t generally post on the battles of MS. Most of my posts are centered around recipes. Healthy, yummy recipes, to help you get away from the S.A.D. (standard American diet) and onto the road of God created eating and joyful health. However, I feel that I have […]


Turkey Veggie Burgers

These burgers have been a life saver for me. When I’m battling the MS fatigue and pain and just don’t feel like cooking, these are a great way for me to know that I’m still getting a lot of nutrition, without all the fuss. I make up several batches at a time, cook them, and […]

ginger spice

Ginger Spice Blend – (AIP)

I am always up for creating spice mixes that make my job in the kitchen easier. This spice mix is incredibly simple, wonderfully tasty, and a perfect way to add more ginger to your diet! Ginger is a spice that should be in everyone’s kitchen. Not just because it tastes good, but because it has […]


Paleo “Peanut Butter” Cups!!!

Here it is, the promised paleo “peanut butter” cup creation! These things put Reese’s to shame, in my opinion. The dark chocolate with the creamy, gooey center, makes me want to melt right out of my chair! This was a complete “last minute” experiment. I was trying to think of things for New Year’s snacking, […]

Homemade Dark Chocolate *Revised and updated*

So I have made a few changes to my original homemade dark chocolate recipe and thought I should pass on the updated information. This recipe yields a lot more chocolate, and I feel it tastes even better!  I don’t pour it into a pyrex anymore. Instead, I dish it into small candy cups, to make […]


Amy’s Veggie Blend – (AIP)

I thought that this veggie blend would be an important recipe to get up on the blog. It has quickly become a favorite to add to recipes, so I thought I should probably be letting everyone know how to make it. It’s quite simple really. This is just an easy way to make sure you […]


Paleo Espresso Brownies! (egg free)

It has been sooooo long since I have had a brownie…I thought I was just going to melt away and die when I came up with this recipe! I felt like a chemist in my kitchen coming up with all the ingredients and measurements to make these brownies juuuusst right. I have always been afraid […]


Country “Gravy” – (AIP)

This country gravy recipe is the best accident I have came upon yet! I was trying a recipe for cauliflower soup and this masterpiece just fell in my lap!! And right before Thanksgiving!! So I did all the steps for the recipe, it was okay, but pretty bland and a little off on texture for […]


The Smoothie Cheat Sheet

I fashioned this “cheat sheet” after one that I used to use from Vitamix. They don’t have theirs available on their site anymore (at least I can no longer find it)…but this makes life incredibly simple for the novice smoothie maker! We still use this sometimes when we want to get creative and need to […]

true nourishment

True Nourishment

For anyone who knows MS, they know that it is an unpredictable adventure. The hard thing about that for me is, I don’t do well with surprises. My life is all about structure and predictability and order. So, as you can imagine, MS doesn’t fit well into that little mold I have made. I am […]


Oven Baked Okra

As promised, here is the yummy okra recipe to go with the seasoning that I posted last week. You will need: 1 lb okra 1 TBSP okra seasoning 1 1/2 TBSP extra virgin olive oil (or coconut oil) Rinse and drain the okra in a small strainer. Place it in a ziplock bag, add the […]


MSG – ???

What is MSG? MSG (monosodium glutamate), without all the extra explanation, is a neurotoxin. Laymen’s terms, it fry’s the cells that your body depends on! It is a highly processed salt that is used in our food supply to enhance flavor and sell more product. It is also one of the reasons our country is […]

Okra Seasoning & a New Format

Hi All! You are going to need this yummy okra seasoning recipe if you are going to make the oven baked okra recipe I will be posting, so I thought it would be wonderful if I got it posted for your reference! I have also come across a lot of websites using this really nifty […]


Amy’s Season All – (AIP)

I was getting so tired of having to drag out a million different spice jars in order to season everything that I cook. I have a pretty standard selection that I use for almost everything, so I figured it would make a lot more sense to come up with a “season all” recipe, rather than […]


the Save My Cravings Chocolate Shake!

What a wonderful relief it was for me to come across this recipe for a CHOCOLATE MILKSHAKE! I have soooo been needing a way to get my chocolate fix, paleo style! With all of the food sensitivities I have, it seems darn near impossible to grab on to anything like this…but this was right up […]


Sole Anyone??

So who has heard of Sole?? I feel like maybe I have been living under a rock…never heard of the stuff. I am not a fish eater, not a fan at all…however, I know how good this stuff is for me, so I am always willing to try to “learn” to like it. ;)  Steven […]

4.3.2012 - the Homewich =) (2)

the Homewich…our version of the “unwich” from Jimmy Johns

I have been craving me and unwich for a looooong time…so I finally decided that I was just going to figure out how I could make one at home! Something with all the ingredients that are good for me and none of the ones that aren’t. So here it is! We had this for the […]

Vibrant Produce

Oh my!

Can we say writers block and totally side tracked!?  It has been so long since I have blogged I am afraid people are going to think that I don’t exist anymore. Rest assured, I am alive and kicking, and I’m trying to get back into the swing of things and bring you some more recipes! […]

Vitamix – Review & FREE Shipping Code

There are so many things to say about the Vitamix! And ALL good! I don’t think I have found one negative thing to report about this machine yet…and I don’t know that I ever will! I LOVE my Vitamix! I have only had this wonderful machine since the first part of February, but I am […]

Hamburger Jerky – (AIP option)

We are some jerky lovin fools, and this recipe has been a life saver. It’s so easy, and it’s wonderful to be able to enjoy jerky without the worry of the MSG and other additives! 2 lbs Grass Fed Beef or Bison (we have also used ground chicken or turkey) 4 teaspoons Celtic Sea Salt […]


An Overdue Post and Some Fudge! :)

This post is long overdue. My body is healing. The Lord is giving me great things through my natural doctor and the diet I am on. Slowly, my immune system is calming down and getting back on the track it is supposed to be on. I have finally started getting back on my feet (natural […]


Debi’s Gluten Free Brownies

Having to learn to cope with these new diet restrictions seems darn near impossible…but these brownies that my sister Debi created for me are by far worth the hassle!! We love them! Even hubby is totally crazy over them. They are gluten free, dairy free, and refined sugar free…and they are a “must try!” 5 […]
