snacks

This is from Sunday, I meant to upload pictures,  but again....my tablet hates me!

So, my new favorite snack has to be creamed coconut in a medjool date! Amazingly, it tastes different than coconut date rolls, but still yummy! I use organic medjool dates and this creamed coconut.  (non-affiliate links in this posting, click on whatever you'd like,  won't  hurt or help me!)

Tomorrow, I have my appointment in the city to see the naturopath.  I plan on making these little balls of energy for the road!

Today,  my hubby is super busy with sap/syrup! I've hardly seen him at all! He is outside, so the kids and I decided to turn our apples into applesauce (they were getting soft), make kale chips (using organic coconut oil, organic kale, sea salt, and my dehydrator!), fruit leathers in the dehydrator and some fresh made o.j.! My kids love orange juice, I'm not a fan of the crap you get at the store.


Oh, and I started my sauerkraut!


Yesterday, while thrifting, I found a hand juicer! The girls were so excited, don't think they realized how much work it is for one cup! We all enjoyed 1 juiced orange! 

While thrifting, I also found some awesome deals on clothes for myself! All good brands, many USA made! I spent under $40!!


So, I have been reading my books. I am about half way through The Paleo Approach, I am pretty sure I am driving my husband nuts! There is a ton of sciencey stuff in it, but they also explain things so they make sense! I have also been looking through the Autoimmune cookbook and am anxious to try out some recipes.  I did follow her roast idea last night for dinner. I oversalted a bit, but it was good, and so simple!  For dinner, we had pulled venison roast with raw cauliflower,  raw broccoli,  raw cucumbers and avocado "ranch". 
I kinda sorta followed the recipe,  not really...but it gave me a good idea and we just adjusted based on taste...

Friday, while the girls had gymnastics,  I stopped at the coop and bought 2 bottles of kombucha. I had planned to make my own, but haven't found a plain version!  The kids loved the drinks, and cannot wait for us to make it. I really do not want to pay $20+ for the scoby when I have no clue what I'm doing!

I also ordered these bad boys! Hopefully,  they are decent quality and I don't f it up! The jerks dropped the price $2 the day after I ordered! I am hoping that with including fermented foods, such as sauerkraut  and the kombucha and water keifer...I can heal!

Now, some people might wonder what in the hell I am trying to heal!
