This has been my first season working with roses and I am kicking myself for not jumping on the rose band-wagon years ago! This rose petal jam is absolutely amazing AND sugar-free (sweetened with xylitol or agave). Dollop it on ice cream, gluten-free toast, or eat it straight out of the jar! … More Sugar-free Rose Petal Jam

Everyone loves fresh homemade bread hot out of the oven. Being gluten-free, I went almost 4 years without any bread and then I had a gluten-free sourdough bread in Portland, Oregon and I was hooked! Ahhh, bread like that is what I had been missing! So I made it my mini-mission to discover a recipe that made amazing gluten-free bread and sourdough was important to me because I really wanted to eliminate as much phytic acid in my family’s diet as I possibly could. … More Make your own Sourdough Starter for fermented breads
I am presenting the Equilibrium Diet at an expo next weekend and one of the things I’m going to be talking about is, “why not eat this way?”…if we know about how important timing our protein intake is, and we know about the superfoods, and we know the vast improvements in health it will bring—why do some people choose to not eat this way? … More “Why not eat this way?”
I have had several readers ask me, “What do you eat? What do you buy?” And what a great conversation starter because it shows what the Equilibrium Diet looks like once “equilibrium” has been reached (physical at least) and how things change.

I can’t keep little (or big) hands away from these tasty and healthy treats! Made with real marshmallow root and grass-fed gelatin, these are immune-boosters and gut-healers. I make a large batch of strong marshmallow tea and freeze what I don’t use immediately to have on hand for easy future batches. They can be dusted with toasted coconut or dipped in carob/chocolate for extra texture and taste. … More Homemade Marshmallows
This beautiful salad is a crowd-pleaser. This was an accidental “gem” I discovered one day while cleaning out the fridge. I only had a bunch of purple kale (green will work as well, but purple is prettier), a bag of carrots and some homemade honey mustard dressing left. I had the shredder out so I decided to shred the carrots and tossed the salad. One bite and I thought, “oh, this would be good with some shredded goat cheese.” So I added that. And tried another bite and I realized, “this would be so good with bacon and slivered almonds for a crunch”. So I added the bacon and almonds to it for breakfast the next morning and it was SO good. Now I try to ALWAYS have this salad sitting in the fridge. Even fast-food addicts love it! The honey mustard dressing is from my friend Heidi and one of my all-time favorites. … More Kale & Carrot Salad – A must have!
