A few weeks ago I received some hard news to swallow.
It was a phone call from my Naturopathic Doctor, Dr. Jodi Kunkel.
While I don’t think of acne itself as a rather life threatening diagnosis I knew it meant something was still out of balance in my body. I was about to find out just how out of balance my body really was.

If you haven’t noticed, I typically don’t post about our failures on Facebook or Instagram.
Mostly because I’m not one that likes to admit I’m wrong, let alone announce it to the whole world.
That’s why it took me a long time to muster up the courage to post them.
My deepest apologies if I’ve fooled you into believing we’re living in a fantasy land...it’s far from a fantasy some days!
I’m not sharing our failures because I’m looking for sympathy. I’m sharing them to give you a glimpse into what really goes on behind the scenes around here.

I don't know about you, but it's tradition for us to have turkey on Thanksgiving.
Truth be told...I don’t even like turkey and there are many things I'd much rather eat than turkey. (Sorry mom)
One of these things is the amazing beef roast I made last week. It was so good Tom actually groaned the first bite. True story.
So I got to thinking…if it’s good enough for a groan, it certainly is good enough for Thanksgiving, right?! (Can you honestly say you’ve ever heard anyone let out a groan after taking their first bite of turkey??….just sayin’)
This Thanksgiving here’s how you can simplify and $ave with making a beef roast instead of turkey.

Here’s 7 tips you must know before cooking grass-fed beef.

It’s hard for me to share this with you because part of me feels like a failure.
The perfectionist in me tells me I should have perfect health, but the reality is, I don’t.
I have a feeling I'm not the only frazzled mom struggling with this.

One of the biggest wake-up calls I’ve had was when I discovered that our bodies need fat.
How could this be?! How could anyone claim that fat is good for you? To claim such nonsense is a crime!
We all know that eating fat will clog your arteries and kill you. And we certainly all know that if you eat fat you’ll get fat.

Have you ever googled ‘raw milk’ and felt overwhelmed, scared, or confused? You’ll be lead to believe it’s the most dangerous thing you can do for your family - and this is exactly how Big Ag wants you to feel.
The multi-billion dollar dairy industry has a lot invested in keeping milk pasteurized, but there’s growing number of people like me and you who are taking their health into their own hands and are starting to seek out fresh, raw milk.
We’ve learned to trust our gut instinct and do what feels right for our families - no matter what scrutiny we may face.

Have you ever wondered if there is a difference between brown eggs and white eggs?
You know the saying "Don't judge a book by it's cover"? Well, don't judge an egg by the color of its shell.

If I've learned anything as a real food lover, it's that you need to be careful.
You can empty your bank account in a hurry if you go "all-in-organic" and sometimes it's just not worth it.
