With 2017 predicted to be one of the riskiest years ever for Lyme-carrying ticks (thanks to an explosion in the mouse population last year that was thanks to a bumper crop of acorns the year before), understanding what Lyme disease is and what it looks like has never been more important.  In fact,  Lyme disease is severely underdiagnosed and can be an underlying challenge for many people with autoimmune disease.  If you struggle with any chronic Read more

I will never forget the speech my husband’s prim and proper grandmother gave at our wedding. She volunteered her best wife hack: if my husband was ever to run out of clean underwear, all I need do was throw them in the dryer with a couple of dryer sheets, and he’d never know the difference!

Herb Potato Salad

Image potato-salad-recipe-3-800x533.jpg

Our nephew’s first birthday was just about two weeks ago. For his late spring party, his parents did a cookout mid-afternoon. I contributed two gluten-free salads to the menu. One was this delicious potato salad, and the other was a gluten-free pasta salad (look for that recipe in a few days!) This recipe is not strict Paleo, because it uses sour cream, but I’ve found that sour cream is an important addition to a creamy salad, Read more

Five Paleo Dinners To Cook Next Week #59

Image fried-chicken-meatballs.jpg

We’ve hit a very summery stretch of weather here in Prague—clear, sunny skies and temps in the 80s (and now I know how to turn that into Celsius! Subtract 50 and divide by 2 for a rough approximation). I’ve been relying on salads, slow cooker recipes, and picnic foods to help us stay cool at meal time. Every day is a good day for a picnic! Last night, Dave and I packed a charcuterie picnic (little sausages, pepperoni sticks, a slice of paté, a Read more

Adaptogen Effects: American and Asian Ginseng

Image Inline_Ginseng.jpg

I’ve been using adaptogens for quite some time, but in the last year I’ve been experimenting a little more with them. You may have caught my mention of a few adaptogenic varieties in one version of my daily big ass salad (not for a flavor hit). I’ve also briefly highlighted ashwagandha and holy basil, and I’ve always been a big believer (and user) of Rhodiola rosea for normalizing stress response. All well and good. But what’s Read more
