It would be such a boon for all of us corn allergy sufferers to have it accurately labeled. I know it’s part of my long-term goals to increase ingredient transparency across the board. I hope you will all sign the petition and let us take the giant leap forward. 🙂 read more

Folate: If You Can’t Make It, You Gotta Take It!

Earlier this year I had a series of medical tests run, including a DNA test. My doctor found that I had a genetic defect in the MTHFR gene that means I can’t activate the folate (B-9) I get from food.

Tip #3: Making Bone Broth in the Oven

I’ve made bone broth in a giant stock pot on the stove, in a 6 quart slow cooker, and lately in the oven! Yep, that’s not a typo. Cooking it in the oven makes so much sense. It provides even, low heat and it gets a giant vat of hot liquid out of the way for 24 hours!
