These are incredible sourdough English muffins! I know they’re incredible because I started a double batch right away on Sunday after receiving the recipe. Good heavens! My family is in love, and they’re so easy. Erin’s directions with step-by-step photos make this a perfect sourdough recipe for beginners! [by Erin VanDerLugt]

It’s Monday – and time for another Real Food Quote Monday (RFQM). Today, I’m continuing to share from Dr. Mary Enig’s and Sally Fallon’s book, “Eat Fat, Lose Fat.” In Chapter 2, their goal is to debunk the lipid hypothesis through answering four questions – or as they put it, exploding four myths. In today’s post, we’ll address the second myth: does high cholesterol cause heart disease?
Today’s Q & A is one of my own questions. I’ve had it since I began making Kombucha. “Since honey has anti-microbial properties, can one use it in fermented beverages and fermented foods? Or will it kill the mother culture?”
I am among many who have tried to eat a small amount of coconut oil before each meal, ala “Eat Fat, Lose Fat” – to increase satiety and decrease cravings. In a comment the other day, Kelli asked for ideas for how to eat coconut oil. She, like me, can’t stand eating it straight. In this post, I gathered up some of my ideas, ideas offered in comments, and a lip-smackin’ idea from Peggy @ Local Nourishment’s blog. Please add your own ideas!
Please join me in welcoming Lisa from the “Come Walk With Me” blog. In this guest post, Lisa shares her experience in making and enjoying the “Yogurt Pizza Dough” recipe in Nourishing Traditions, along with ideas for how else this dough can be used. Thanks, Lisa! Those are some mouth-watering pizzas!

We were set on chickens; said we’d get them this spring. My husband, Jeff, and my daughter, B., made an elaborate spreadsheet tracking important (to us) characteristics of all the heritage chicken breeds. We were ready to order. Then our friend Jami (the gal with the awesome cast iron seasoning post) reminded us that we might want to consider ducks. We revisited the subject. Scratch the chickens. Now we’re going with ducks.
Please welcome Claudia Vasquez, who is today sharing a beautiful photo tutorial of making the Coconut Macaroons from Nourishing Traditions. Thank you, Claudia, for your inspiration and lovely photos!
Using up leftover chicken and combining my two favorite sauce ingredients – coconut milk and cumin – this was a delicious, quick, throw-together meal! I served it over cooked brown basmati rice, but it would have been wonderful over mashed potatoes or quinoa, too.
