Seed Catalog

Posted by on Dec 9, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

  I can’t tell you how excited I was to receive my seed catalog in yesterday’s mail. There is something about reading about what I can grow in my garden when the temperature barely reaches 0 degrees. Something to hope for, right? No Christmas decorations up at my house yet, no baking done. Feeling a hint of pressure, but at least all my gifts are purchased (I think!) May peace be with you in this season of joy and...

Food Matters Free Viewing

Posted by on Dec 3, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

This week you can view the documentary Food Matters for free. You truly are what you eat. I highly recommend taking one hour to learn how you can make a difference in your body by fueling it properly. Everyone approaches this subject differently and you need to do what works best for you and your family. Since changing our diet two years ago, my son and I no longer take any asthma medications. My son has healed his gut. I no longer feel aches and pains in my joints. Neither of us suffer from headaches, heartburn, or illness. It is a true...

Non GMO Gluten Free Thanksgiving Dinner

Posted by on Nov 25, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

  Naturally Kristi is back for a day here and there. Today I am so excited to share my Non GMO Gluten Free Thanksgiving Dinner. Since we enjoy Thanksgiving with our respective families, away from our home, I like to prepare an early Thanksgiving meal. This gets us into the spirit and it gives me food to bring with us to supplement our dietary needs. Our meal was fabulous and we were able to share with impromptu family guests. It was perfect. I apologize for my lousy photos. First of all, I am not much of a photographer and I also had...

Mid October Harvest

Posted by on Oct 14, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

Just popping in to say I am thankful for this awesome October harvest of green beans. I might get one more small harvest out of my little crop. The carrots are growing nicely yet, along with the green onions. But, my poor squash is looking a little sad, what do you think?

October is Non-GMO Month

Posted by on Oct 10, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

I celebrate eating NON GMO everyday and I am observing that more people are understanding the importance everyday. Try to think about your food choices this month! I challenge you. A little story from this week. I went to a catered function on Monday. I called ahead and the restaurant said that the prime rib was the best gluten free choice. I asked for a side of broccoli, since I can’t eat the potato. So, within 15-30 minutes of eating the meat, the whole left side of my body was in pain. It was so strange that it was only on the left...

Garden Update

Posted by on Oct 1, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

About one week ago, I cleaned the garden up and tore out everything that was done for the season. I decided that broccoli and cauliflower are NOT worth the valuable space it takes up in my compact deck garden. I would rather have more green beans. I enjoyed growing basil; we have pesto every couple of weeks. I use my green onions and carrots regularly. I really like being able to just pick what I need, when I need it. I got ONE tiny Minnesota Midget Cantaloupe out of the six melon plants I nurtured. We gave it a try about 1 1/2 weeks ago....

I’m Back!

Posted by on Sep 30, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

I am finally back to my beloved blog and my handful of readers…are you still out there? I really enjoyed my time away, but I think fear of trying to keep up with the five days a week posting I set up for myself, is what kept me from returning. Blogging is time consuming and if you are like everyone else in the world, time is limited, right? I spent August and September enjoying the rest of the summer with my son and then adjusting to school again. Yuck, I sure don’t like that 6 AM alarm! Oh, and honors physics has definitely added...

Summer Slide

Posted by on Aug 7, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

  I am definitely in the Summer Slide! I have great intentions to post a blog entry and I have loads of new products, recipes and videos to share…but, alas, it just isn’t coming together for me. So, like many other bloggers, I am taking the rest of August off. Since I am giving myself permission to do this, I will stop feeling bad that I haven’t done an update. I am so excited to share with you about new products I have tried from Edison Grain and Hail Merry! Enjoy the rest of the summer and see you after Labor...
