GAPS Q&A at the Clark County WAPF Recap

Mama at The Liberated Kitchen

Last night I joined 3 other experienced GAPSters on the panel at the Clark County, Washington Weston A. Price Foundation (WAPF) meeting. Since folks asked, I thought I’d give everyone a little recap with added information and a booklist!

There was also a Green Pastures Fermented Cod Liver Oil tasting bar and potluck. Yum!

If you were at the meeting and would like to add the stuff I forgot to the comments, provide pictures, or post the recipes to the treats you shared, I’d love that!

Book Review: The Vegetarian Myth

The Vegetarian Myth

I wanted The Vegetarian Myth: Food, Justice, and Sustainability to be a persuasive, easy read about how vegetarianism is not the panacea it’s been made out to be for our global and personal health. I wanted substantiated facts about the horrors of large scale grain and soy production, a hard core dismissal of the vegetarian myth that all meat production has to be an environmental and moral disaster, and a robust explanation of why a diet rich in high quality animal products is essential to good health.

It seems like all of a sudden everyone was asking me if I’d read Wheat Belly: Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight, and Find Your Path Back to Health, with a knowing wink or rolled eyes.

Wheat Belly

So I put it on hold at the library, and waited… and waited… and waited some more. Clearly, this book was something hot!

I can see why people either love or hate this book. If it’s the first time you’ve come across the concept that wheat (and other grains) can cause damage to all sorts of systems in the body – for … Continue reading Wheat Belly Book Review

Tongue!

Force thawing a beef tongue in the sink

We eat a lot of meat. Breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner all have some sort of animal based component. We’re healthier than ever, so it’s clear this is a good way for us to eat. As former vegetarians, though, our high meat consumption weighed on our conscience and lightened our wallet.

When we decided to commit to our meat-eating ways, TinyHands and I figured we’d better get serious about putting the whole animal to good use. So… from tail to tongue we eat what we can. This week we thought we’d show you what to do with beef tongue!
