Taking a break from the regular type of posting here just to talk about life, friends, classes, and my new video camera. As I write, I can hear the goats snoring out the window. They love to lounge in the dirt and the sun.

Donielle, from the Naturally Knocked Up blog, is giving away a free Supporting Fertility eCourse enrollment to one GNOWFGLINS reader!
A new eCourse teaches how to support female reproductive health through natural living and nourishing foods. Donielle Baker, from the Naturally Knocked Up blog, is the teacher; she knows first-hand about issues surrounding hormones, fertility, conception, and health. In 2002, she was diagnosed with PCOS (poly-cycstic ovary syndrome). She’s offered GNOWFGLINS readers an incredible coupon and a giveaway for a free enrollment.
I am on a condiment kick at the moment. Ketchup last week and this week honey dill mustard. Oh, the zip and zing a little mustard can add to a sandwich! My mouth waters just thinking about it! If you have a few minutes and a few simple ingredients, you can whip this mustard up in no time.
The USDA put out a draft of the 2010 Dietary Guidelines. They are not motivated by truth and the health-giving properties of nutrient-dense foods. Instead, the proposed dietary guidelines will increase reliance on processed foods, leading to increased modern diseases, and greater reliance on pharmaceuticals. Your voice is needed NOW to speak for God’s nutritious foods.
We loved, loved, loved this spice cake! The souring process is easy and worth the effort to prepare the wheat for maximum digestibility. Whole wheat flour is wonderful. This cake needs hearty, I think. But if you differ, feel free to use whole wheat pastry flour for a lighter cake. Also, a very special announcement at the end of this post which you need to read.
Is it crazy for ketchup to bring me such a smile? Honestly! I didn’t know if I should name this delicacy “Oh My Lans Ketchup!”, “Mercy Sakes Ketchup!”, or “You Are Never Going to Believe It Ketchup!”. When I think about this delicious, simple, and nutritious condiment, I can only shake my head. Enjoy the taste and tang of summer year-round with this lacto-fermented treat! Your gut will thank you… as will each of your friends and family members! [by Erin VanderLugt]
I am in love with Erin’s sourdough pizza crust! We ate pizza twice over the weekend. By last night, I was itching to try something else with the wonderful dough. So I tried pizza pockets – and the kids loved them. They were incredibly easy, tasty and satisfying. Give them a try!
Many have been waiting for Erin to share her sourdough pizza crust method. The wait is over! Erin writes, “Pizza and sourdough. Two of our favorite things! How great to combine them into one delicious ‘gourmet feast’– as my husband and 3 year old like to say. This recipe requires very little hands-on time, is nourishing, and simply delicious. Enjoy!”
