News always seems to come in good and bad packages. Today’s is bittersweet. I don’t know how to say it other than to just come out and say:

I’m taking a hiatus.
Coffee Break - Heart
Yup, that’s right. I know it may seem out of the blue, but blogging has gotten a little much and my poor brain needs a break. A few months ago I realized that I haven’t really had a break since recovering from my health problems, I went straight into writing blog posts, and I’ve kept myself living in the mindset of having those problems day in and day out so I could write more posts. Not good or fun, but I just can seem to bust out of it.

So I need a break to recharge my empty batteries.

Today will be the last post for a while. I’ll miss all of you.

Until I get back, au revoir.

Problem in the State of Denmark

Hi everyone! I wanted to let you know that I don’t have a post today.

I know “bad blogger!”.

But I’ve gotten behind. Usually I have – oh… a week of posts as a buffer (I should have more, but it is what it is.), and I’ve run out.

Why I’ve run out is probably a post in itself that I should write. Namely vertigo. Ugh. I hate vertigo. Talk about a life sucker, time sucker, okay an everything sucker. Then think about having it for almost 2 weeks straight.

Yeah, writing posts definitely took a back burner. So I wrote all this to say I should hopefully have posts up on Thursday to return to my usually posting schedule of Mon/Thur/Sat.

Thanks. See you Thursday!

(Realized it’s kinda silly to write a post about not having a post…)

Vertigo Pic

(I never watch Hitchcock Films, so I’m not recommending it. The pic just seemed to fit. And if your curious about why I don’t watch them – they’re to scary that’s why!)

Easy, 6 Ingredient Banana Muffins (GAPS, Paleo)

I’ve been thinking about bananas lately, and what types of recipe to do with them. Reading a banana ice cream recipe probably had something to do with that.

So here is a banana muffin recipe – it’s claim to fame is it only takes 6 ingredients and the only sweetener is bananas!

Sweet! (yes, I’m being funny…)

[title]Banana Muffins (GAPS, Paleo)[/title]
3 bananas, ripe
3 organic eggs
3 1/2 cups almond flour
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4-1/3 cup coconut oil, melted

Blend the wet ingredients. Mix the dry in a bowl with a fork or whisk. Combine the wet and dry then scoop into a lined muffin pan and bake at 350º F until lightly brown (it should spring lightly back when touched). Remove and let cool. Enjoy warm or cool!

You can keep these on the counter for a day or two then you’ll want to move them to the fridge.

Note: you can add other flavors if you want, but this is a basic muffin, (and tastes great with butter).

GAPS Christmas Present Ideas

Hi everybody! It’s that time of year again and I have to say I’m so glad that I’m finished my holiday shopping for this year. But for those of you who still need ideas I thought I would make a list of items you could get for GAPSâ„¢ people or for your foodie friends. Next week I’m going to posting easy homemade gifts you can make.

You can find more items on my Resource Page.

For the person who loves books or some new grain free recipes in the kitchen I would really recommend:


Onion Rolls

Healing Foods Onion Rolls

Those are my top two cookbooks, they are for the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) so they need an occasional tweak, but they have some of the best recipes. Like fried chicken in the one by Jodi Bager and wonderful Onion Rolls in the one by Sandra Ramacher. Sandra recommends using the Onion Rolls as Hamburger Buns. Yum!

If you want to get something a little bigger for the kitchen my top 3 tools would have to be:

We use our Vitamix everyday for everything from smoothies, pureeing soups, making frozen yogurt, and many other things. I truly believe the possibilities are endless. Definitely my #1 choice. The Cuisinart is helpful for cutting prep, liver pate, and such. With the Excalibur Dehydrator perfect for crispy nuts, yogurt, sour cream, and dried fruits and veggies. All 3 are excellent.
Of course I have to mention that Christmas would be a perfect time to ask for Gut and Psychology by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride. I know several people who’ve found the book a little expensive so this might be the perfect time to ask for one for yourself or buy one for a friend.

What do you want this holiday season?
