It's been a long, busy, exhausting few months with all the holidays entails and for sometime like me with auto immune and everything else, my self care gets pushed aside a lot. Which is okay during times we are serving others and spending time with loved ones but now it's time to slow down. Today I'm making a big batch of Herbal Broth for all the ails and pains. I hope you all find some peace & rest after all the craziness and even find time to care for yourself.

HAPPY RECIPE SEARCHING!
Here you will find recipes either created by me or from ones I have found and changed up to my liking. I try to use ingredients that are usually 95% organic (lessen that toxic load!), very little unrefined sugars used and the majority of these are GLUTEN FREE. We eat legumes, grains, nuts, seeds, grass fed organic meats, pasture raised eggs, very small amounts of organic dairy, and lots of fruits and veggies! You can always change up the recipes to fit your lifestyle or taste buds! Thanks for supporting me and my art through food!
