Scrolling through this blog I see so many fresh wholesome foods and it makes me so happy! It’s so refreshing to read all these recipes and I can't wait to try them all. I’m a blogger as well with an only slightly different cause-gardening. I work with a company called Cayisa to promote learning gardens, sustainable gardening, and reforestation. Cayisa also sells some awesome natural jewelry to support their cause. You should check out the website ( and the blog (!

Transitioning to a raw diet has been the most difficult, yet most wonderful thing I could do for my overall health. I will never look back to over cooked, processed, or packaged food!

Love this! When I'm on a vegetarian kick, tofu is my go-to. I've learned to like silken tofu the most, as is is perfect for spicy korean tofu soups and stews, and can also be blended up in my nutribullet smoothies :) <3 dani

WOW !! Could you ferment this?? I love strawberries too, but here in central AR we only get the good ones a couple of weeks. If we could ferment this we could prolong our strawberry season!!

I made this for my husband and I for lunch, and it yielded so much I expected to have leftovers.. but instead, we ate the entire bowl. Delicious!

Post image for The Very Best Gluten-Free Pancakes

I recently found myself craving the absolute deliciousness known as pancakes, and was determined to find a gluten-free recipe that tasted just as delicious as the original kind. After doing a bit of researching and experimenting, I found one that is so delicious. I kid you not. I made these a few nights ago and Jana (who, I might add, does not normally eat gluten free) fell in love with them! They’re also vegan. :) Read more »

Post image for Homemade Healing Beet Kvass

Beets serve many purposes. We’ve used this gorgeous vegetable to make cake, hummus, detoxifying juicelip and cheek stain, and powdered blush, just to name a few. Today, I want to introduce to you another way to use beet — and this way may just be the most beneficial of all. Read more »

Marybeth -Jul 17, 2014, 3:18PM
I have seen recipes where you can use the beets up to 2 additional batches by saving a cup of the previous kvass. Is this true?
Nadia -Jun 18, 2014, 3:33PM
This is full of beneficial bacteria. Much better quality, and cheaper, than probiotic supplements. I've heard you shouldn't add whey to vegetable ferments. The bacteria in dairy and the bacteria in vegetables are different types, or something like that. So a better 'starter' would be juice from a previous vegetable ferment.
