For today’s Real Food Quote Monday (RFQM), I’m quoting from “Keeping A Family Cow” by Joann S. Grohman. This book has kept my head in the game lately, during my alternating euphoria and misery. You see, Gracie, our new Jersey, gave birth to a heifer calf a little over a week ago. Milking has been… well, just read the post.
Once upon a time I started a series here at GNOWFGLINS. I called it Real Food Quote Monday (RFQM), and I shared each Monday a quote from something I read. I kept up the series for quite some time.

I’m back with RFQM today, with a new approach, and a helpful natural remedy for keratosis pilaris — the sandpaper like rashes on the backs of many arms, including my own.
A fascinating chapter on healthy milk, meat and eggs awaits! Please let us know how you liked this chapter, what you learned, what you’re doing right, or what you can improve! If you’re not caught up in this study, no worries. This is about what works for you, and we’ll be here when you’re ready.

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 fourth and final myth: does cholesterol causes plaque buildup in arteries?
