Lemon Parsley Chicken

Of all the proteins I serve them, my kids enjoy chicken the least. My go-to quick meal often involves a rotisserie chicken from Whole Foods and the kids usually gripe and complain about it.  Same with my whole smoked chickens and baked chicken parts (which, incidentally are basted in duck fat* and I happen to think […]

Last year, in advance of the holiday season, I solicited ideas from you guys.  Together, we created a “Wellness Holiday Wish List.” This year, I’m going to turn the tables a bit and offer up some of my favorite things as we make our way through the holiday season. You may recognize some of these […]

For my second ferments of kombucha, I use containers I’ve accumulated over the years.  Mason jars, nut butter jars, and this bottle.  I got it in Florida at a fun smoothie stop on 30A, but every time I drink from it, I feel so illicit. #kombuchaflask If you read my blog much, you know I […]

My friend K put in a request for ground beef recipes, which has proven more challenging than one might imagine. The big problem is that I can’t eat nightshades and many of the best uses for ground beef demand nightshades – Italian recipes, chili, even the picadillo I wanted to re-create. The other problem is […]

My big kids’ Fall Break was last Thursday and Friday.  We normally trek to my mom’s but that’s a five-hour drive minimum and given that I haven’t had a full night of sleep in fifteen months, three weeks and four days (but who’s counting?) I just didn’t feel safe getting behind the wheel for an […]

When I am pressed for time and need a simple supper for my crew, I almost always make a frittata. Last weekend, we spent Sunday afternoon at a darling pumpkin patch that is 100% full of Southern kitsch.  We shot corn cobs from pneumatic guns, watched pig races, rode a cow tractor, and more.  We […]

Remember that time I stalked Katy Bowman at the Ancestral Health Symposium 2013? Because she was in Atlanta?  And this happened? Katy is my movement guru.  Her approach is firmly grounded in science, and yet refreshingly free from the burdens that often make science … how to say it? …. a tad unwieldy? Namely, she […]

I’ve been a bit AWOL from the blog and social media this week.  My bigs are on Fall Break and I’ve been hanging with them as much as I can. But I still have lots of great stuff for you this week, so let’s go. Katy Bowman offers up a winter version of her popular […]
