KYF #153: (Pt. 3) All I Really Need To Know I Learned In The Kitchen... {Kitchen Rules 11-15}

We spend a lot of time in the kitchen, don't we? We pour our heart and soul into the foods we prepare to nourish ourselves and our families. Yet in the kitchen, so much more happens than what's on the surface. Sure, we make good food. Good and healing food. And.... we also make nurture relationships with our children and spouse... and friends. How we handle tasks, failures, and successes contributes to who we are as a person. Whether we grow into who God wants us to be... or whether we stagnate. Many of my life's lessons have come in the kitchen. And I know yours have, too. In this series, I'm sharing "kitchen rules" -- words to live by in the kitchen (and in the relationships, struggles, and successes that happen there). So we can grow stronger and better through our experiences there. Here are kitchen rules 11 to 15. Please share at show notes which rules spoke to you and why -- and also share if you like this series and want me to continue it! P.S. I was inspired to start this series by listening to another (unrelated) podcast in which the author shares "rules" for his field of business. I heard that and thought, why not? This will work for the kitchen, too! Because whatever field you're in, valuable lessons are there for the taking. Show notes, links, and video replay at http://KnowYourFoodPodcast.com/153

Andrea shares: “I use the freezing method most often for culinary herbs since it is easy and quick. Harvest your herbs, make sure they are dry, place them in a labeled container, and freeze. Super simple. This works for just about all leafy herbs. To save time during the busy harvest season, I don’t bother to remove the stems because it’s easy enough to do when I pull them out of the freezer to use them. You can also chop the herbs and put them into an ice cube tray with a little oil. Once frozen, pop them into a labeled bag or container. It’s a little more work on the front end, but can be a timesaver while cooking.” Click here to learn 4 more ways to preserve herbs. Want to submit a Tip of the Week? I might share it on the air!

Any advice?” In this episode, I share how I have been following Trim Healthy Mama (100% traditional with no fake foods) since mid-May and have lost more than 25 pounds. I feel it’s an option that you, Christina, could consider and in the episode I share why and how. About Bill McDorman “Bill McDorman is co-director and co-founder of the Rocky Mountain Seed Alliance (RMSA), a new nonprofit seed conservation organization serving the Rocky Mountain West. He was previous director of Native Seeds/SEARCH in Tucson. Bill founded 3 seed companies and cofounded several nonprofits including the Sawtooth Botanical Garden in Hailey, Idaho.

About The Book: Nourishing Broth Nourishing Traditions examines where the modern food industry has hurt our nutrition and health through over-processed foods and fears of animal fats. Nourishing Broth will continue the look at the culinary practices of our ancestors, and it will explain the immense health benefits of homemade bone broth due to the gelatin and collagen that is present in real bone broth (vs. broth made from powders). Nourishing Broth will explore the science behind broth’s unique combination of amino acids, minerals and cartilage compounds. Some of the benefits of such broth are: quick recovery from illness and surgery, the healing of pain and inflammation, increased energy from better digestion, lessening of allergies, recovery from Crohn’s disease and a lessening of eating disorders because the fully balanced nutritional program lessens the cravings which make most diets fail. Diseases that bone broth can help heal are: Osteoarthritis, Osteoporosis, Psoriasis, Infectious Disease, digestive disorders, even Cancer, and it can help our skin and bones stay young. In addition, the book will serve as a handbook for various techniques for making broths-from simple chicken broth to rich, clear consommé, to shrimp shell stock. A variety of interesting stock-based recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner from throughout the world will complete the collection and help everyone get more nutrition in their diet.

CrossFit is taking the world by storm! Is it a modern craze or is there something deeper — even traditional — about it? Join me and Nathan Brammeier, blogger/podcaster at ReThinkTrueHealth and owner of CrossFit Adventure in Concord, California, as we get to the bottom of this and more. We’ll discuss what CrossFit is, why you might consider it for your own exercise program, how to get started, and even a look at the popular Paleo diet among CrossFitters.

Listener Question Lara asks: “I had an awful reaction to Ultimate Flora Women’s Probiotic 15billion, and after reading one of your articles I stopped taking it because I realized that the die-off was way too much all at once. I had migraines and fatigue for 6 days until I stopped taking them. My brain felt like it was inflamed. Now the headaches are almost gone but I feel so sick and nauseous and bloated. I threw up this morning. So I want to continue with probiotics but I’m nervous with what amount I should start with. Can I open up the capsules? And what do I do with the powder once it is open? Also, I read about neurotoxicity and that freaked me out. Could that happen with taking probiotics? Any help would be appreciated. I’m so glad I found your site, I will be following your guidelines the best I can!” Listen to this episode for my answer.

KYF #086: Is It Possible To Heal From Multiple Chemical Sensitivities?

Theresa suffered for years but doctors told her there was nothing wrong (yet she would probably be on prescription medications for the rest of her life!). After deep research of her own, she found out that she had multiple chemical sensitivities and embarked on her own healing journey with alternative health care and whole foods.

Listener Question Lori asks: “I made a sourdough starter yesterday, I used a pack of quick rise yeast, in warm water, 2 cups all-purpose flour, just a sprinkle of raw sugar and enough warm water to mix it well. Waited till it got a little bubbly on top, covered with cheese cloth. Today it was growing with bubbles, so I took out 2 cups and added 1 cup more flour. Mixed well till a good consistency. Wow, the pan cakes I made with the 2 cups I took out were the best I’ve ever had. I added my own vanilla paste to the batter, they were what makes your eyes roll back in your head! Yum. It is a good living start, growing as we speak. =) Have ever used quick rise yeast?” Listen to this episode for my answer. About Teresa Jungling and Living Natural Today “I (Teresa) struggled through many years of illness that medical doctors could not diagnose. After multiple CAT Scans, MRIs, ultra sounds, blood tests, and visits with specialists all ending in frustration, I looked into more natural healthcare. I was determined to find answers and not to be given prescription medications for the rest of my life! It was only after seeking alternative ways that I was diagnosed with endocrine and autonomic nervous system issues. The worst of it being major adrenal fatigue, hormone imbalances, immune problems and multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) to name a few. Also, in my pursuit of answers to health related issues, I became aware of many environmental toxins and chemicals. The more I researched, the more I learned about how unhealthy our food, beauty products, cleaning chemicals, and other commonly used items can be for us. As a Christian, there were times when I questioned why I was going through all of the frustration and pain that came from these health challenges. As I traveled from doctor to doctor, I wondered why I couldn’t find a proper diagnosis (not knowing what’s making your body sicker and weaker is VERY frustrating). However, I never gave up hope that the Lord would see me through. Eventhough I didn’t give up, there were days I couldn’t pray. I didn’t know what to say. I was so upset and discouraged. Still in my heart, I knew I was going through this for a reason and that He had a plan for me. I developed my website Living Natural Today as a result of my personal health challenges due to living in “today’s” world. It is a resource to help inspire others who might be struggling with the similar health related issues that I have experienced, and to give people a central resource in regards to living a more natural lifestyle. I realize that chemicals, toxins, environmental factors, stress and food all played a role as to why I became so ill. I am on the road to recovery and I now know that it IS POSSIBLE to feel better. Living naturally is a key to better health!” Click here to visit Living Natural Today. Be sure to download Teresa’s free Resource Guide for Toxins, too!

Listener Question Amy asks: “This has been bugging me for a while, hopefully you can help put my mind at ease All of the classes and instructions for sprouted flour go into all kinds of detail about why you dehydrate the sprouted berries at a certain temperature to preserve the enzymes (which I get in other contexts), but they all turn around and use the flour in baked goods that are baked at high temperatures, like 350, which seems to me would destroy all those enzymes I was so careful to preserve. What am I missing? Are there differences between dehydrating the berries for grinding into flour and actually baking with the flour? Thanks SO much for clearing this up for me!” Amy is referring to sprouting techniques in the Fundamentals module of our membership area. Listen to this episode for my answer! About Erica Mueller “Erica Mueller spent most of her childhood on a mini-farm. She’s lived the almost-self-sufficient lifestyle and aches to be there again.

I got the instructions for your sourdough starter through facebook; I have started a culture (several times now) but have some questions: I have had great growth and bubbles for 3-4 days, then the next addition will end up watery with a “pinkish” color/cover on the top – what is it? is it harmful? what did I do wrong? (too low temp?) when you say “cover loosely” what does this mean? the jar screw top not screwed on tight? a piece of saran wrap loosely placed over the top or secured tight with rubber band? where do you find a constant 85 degrees? and how important is it? during the day, I can put the starter in the garage (my house is kept at 80 and I can’t find anywhere – cabinets, closets, etc, that maintains 85), but at night it drops into the 70’s – I live in mid-florida.

KYF #153: (Pt. 3) All I Really Need To Know I Learned In The Kitchen... {Kitchen Rules 11-15}

We spend a lot of time in the kitchen, don't we? We pour our heart and soul into the foods we prepare to nourish ourselves and our families. Yet in the kitchen, so much more happens than what's on the surface. Sure, we make good food. Good and healing food. And.... we also make nurture relationships with our children and spouse... and friends. How we handle tasks, failures, and successes contributes to who we are as a person. Whether we grow into who God wants us to be... or whether we stagnate. Many of my life's lessons have come in the kitchen. And I know yours have, too. In this series, I'm sharing "kitchen rules" -- words to live by in the kitchen (and in the relationships, struggles, and successes that happen there). So we can grow stronger and better through our experiences there. Here are kitchen rules 11 to 15. Please share at show notes which rules spoke to you and why -- and also share if you like this series and want me to continue it! P.S. I was inspired to start this series by listening to another (unrelated) podcast in which the author shares "rules" for his field of business. I heard that and thought, why not? This will work for the kitchen, too! Because whatever field you're in, valuable lessons are there for the taking. Show notes, links, and video replay at http://KnowYourFoodPodcast.com/153

His mission: to connect communities with the seeds that sustain them.

You can also get it on iTunes or subscribe in the Podcasts app. Tip of the Week: Freezing Herbs In today’s tip of the week, I share how easily you can freeze herbs. It’s easy and quick! Andrea shares: “I use the freezing method most often for culinary herbs since it is easy and quick. Harvest your herbs, make sure they are dry, place them in a labeled container, and freeze. Super simple. This works for just about all leafy herbs. To save time during the busy harvest season, I don’t bother to remove the stems because it’s easy enough to do when I pull them out of the freezer to use them. You can also chop the herbs and put them into an ice cube tray with a little oil. Once frozen, pop them into a labeled bag or container. It’s a little more work on the front end, but can be a timesaver while cooking.” Click here to learn 4 more ways to preserve herbs. Want to submit a Tip of the Week? I might share it on the air!

Listener Question Christina asks: “How can I consume real, organic whole foods and lose weight? Ever since we began traditional cooking and food preparation, I’ve gained 10 lbs and I already had about 20 to lose. I don’t want to go on some extreme diet and forsake all the knowledge I’ve attained about nutrition in order to drop the weight but I am desperate. Any advice?” In this episode, I share how I have been following Trim Healthy Mama (100% traditional with no fake foods) since mid-May and have lost more than 25 pounds. I feel it’s an option that you, Christina, could consider and in the episode I share why and how. About Bill McDorman “Bill McDorman is co-director and co-founder of the Rocky Mountain Seed Alliance (RMSA), a new nonprofit seed conservation organization serving the Rocky Mountain West. He was previous director of Native Seeds/SEARCH in Tucson. Bill founded 3 seed companies and cofounded several nonprofits including the Sawtooth Botanical Garden in Hailey, Idaho. He is author of Basic Seed Saving which he wrote in 1994. He and his wife Belle Starr, former Deputy Director of NS/S and codirector of the Rocky Mountain Seed Alliance created an innovative week-long training called Seed School, the educational center-piece of RMSA. The course has graduated over 550 Seed Citizens in slightly more than four years. Bill is a passionate and knowledgeable presenter, inspires his audiences to connect deeply with the world in which they live and rejoin the ritual of seed saving.“ Click here to visit Rocky Mountain Seed Alliance or for more information about all their resources and events.  About The Book: Basic Seed Saving Basic Seed Saving is a 48-page paperback book written by RMSA Executive Director Bill McDorman.

KYF #088: Nourishing Broth: An Old Fashioned Remedy ...

Broth can help with: quick recovery from illness and surgery healing of pain and inflammation increased energy from better digestion lessening of allergies recovery from Crohn’s disease Osteoarthritis Osteoporosis Psoriasis Infectious Disease digestive disorders Cancer and it can help our skin and bones stay young Pretty awesome, right? That’s just scratching the surface because nothing warms the tummy and the heart like a good bowl of broth-based soup! Join me and the Naughty Nutritionist, Dr. Kaayla Daniel, as we explore this age-old remedy that stands tall among all superfoods. Get to know Kaayla, broth, and her brand-new book (co-authored with Sally Fallon Morell), Nourishing Broth, through the links and information below, and of course through this podcast.

You can also get it on iTunes or subscribe in the Podcasts app. Tip of the Week: Perpetual Broth In today’s tip of the week, I share an easy way to use your crockpot to have broth going all the time. No mess, no fuss, and plenty of broth to drink and consume daily (or more). Click here to find out more. Want to submit a Tip of the Week? I might share it on the air! Use the contact form or send an email to contact at knowyourfoodpodcast dot com with the subject line “Tip of the Week”. Listener Question Sherry asks: “I think what is hard, is some of the vocabulary. If I don’t don’t the vocab I can’t understand much. I have never heard of words like probiotic, and Kefir, and don’t truly understand fermenting, or cultured. Like any subject the vocabulary is really key to understanding.” Listen to this episode for my answer. About Dr. Kaayla Daniel, PdD, CCN “Kaayla T. Daniel, PhD, CCN is known as The Naughty Nutritionist® because of her ability to outrageously and humorously debunk nutritional myths. She is Vice President of the Weston A. Price Foundation, on the Board of Directors of the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund, and author of The Whole Soy Story: The Dark Side of America’s Favorite Health Food. Dr. Daniel has been a guest on The Dr. Oz Show, PBS Healing Quest, NPR’s People’s Pharmacy, and many other shows, and has shared the stage with Dr. Mark Hyman, JJ Virgin, Gary Taubes, Charles Poliquin, Dr. Joseph Mercola, Sally Fallon Morell, Joel Salatin, and David Wolfe.” Click here to visit Dr. Kaayla Daniel’s site. About The Book: Nourishing Broth Nourishing Traditions examines where the modern food industry has hurt our nutrition and health through over-processed foods and fears of animal fats. Nourishing Broth will continue the look at the culinary practices of our ancestors, and it will explain the immense health benefits of homemade bone broth due to the gelatin and collagen that is present in real bone broth (vs. broth made from powders). Nourishing Broth will explore the science behind broth’s unique combination of amino acids, minerals and cartilage compounds. Some of the benefits of such broth are: quick recovery from illness and surgery, the healing of pain and inflammation, increased energy from better digestion, lessening of allergies, recovery from Crohn’s disease and a lessening of eating disorders because the fully balanced nutritional program lessens the cravings which make most diets fail. Diseases that bone broth can help heal are: Osteoarthritis, Osteoporosis, Psoriasis, Infectious Disease, digestive disorders, even Cancer, and it can help our skin and bones stay young. In addition, the book will serve as a handbook for various techniques for making broths-from simple chicken broth to rich, clear consommé, to shrimp shell stock. A variety of interesting stock-based recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner from throughout the world will complete the collection and help everyone get more nutrition in their diet.

CrossFit is taking the world by storm! Is it a modern craze or is there something deeper — even traditional — about it? Join me and Nathan Brammeier, blogger/podcaster at ReThinkTrueHealth and owner of CrossFit Adventure in Concord, California, as we get to the bottom of this and more. We’ll discuss what CrossFit is, why you might consider it for your own exercise program, how to get started, and even a look at the popular Paleo diet among CrossFitters.

Listener Question Lara asks: “I had an awful reaction to Ultimate Flora Women’s Probiotic 15billion, and after reading one of your articles I stopped taking it because I realized that the die-off was way too much all at once. I had migraines and fatigue for 6 days until I stopped taking them. My brain felt like it was inflamed. Now the headaches are almost gone but I feel so sick and nauseous and bloated. I threw up this morning. So I want to continue with probiotics but I’m nervous with what amount I should start with. Can I open up the capsules? And what do I do with the powder once it is open? Also, I read about neurotoxicity and that freaked me out. Could that happen with taking probiotics? Any help would be appreciated. I’m so glad I found your site, I will be following your guidelines the best I can!” Listen to this episode for my answer.

KYF #086: Is It Possible To Heal From Multiple Chemical Sensitivities?

Theresa suffered for years but doctors told her there was nothing wrong (yet she would probably be on prescription medications for the rest of her life!). After deep research of her own, she found out that she had multiple chemical sensitivities and embarked on her own healing journey with alternative health care and whole foods.

Listener Question Lori asks: “I made a sourdough starter yesterday, I used a pack of quick rise yeast, in warm water, 2 cups all-purpose flour, just a sprinkle of raw sugar and enough warm water to mix it well. Waited till it got a little bubbly on top, covered with cheese cloth. Today it was growing with bubbles, so I took out 2 cups and added 1 cup more flour. Mixed well till a good consistency. Wow, the pan cakes I made with the 2 cups I took out were the best I’ve ever had. I added my own vanilla paste to the batter, they were what makes your eyes roll back in your head! Yum. It is a good living start, growing as we speak. =) Have ever used quick rise yeast?” Listen to this episode for my answer. About Teresa Jungling and Living Natural Today “I (Teresa) struggled through many years of illness that medical doctors could not diagnose. After multiple CAT Scans, MRIs, ultra sounds, blood tests, and visits with specialists all ending in frustration, I looked into more natural healthcare. I was determined to find answers and not to be given prescription medications for the rest of my life! It was only after seeking alternative ways that I was diagnosed with endocrine and autonomic nervous system issues. The worst of it being major adrenal fatigue, hormone imbalances, immune problems and multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) to name a few. Also, in my pursuit of answers to health related issues, I became aware of many environmental toxins and chemicals. The more I researched, the more I learned about how unhealthy our food, beauty products, cleaning chemicals, and other commonly used items can be for us. As a Christian, there were times when I questioned why I was going through all of the frustration and pain that came from these health challenges. As I traveled from doctor to doctor, I wondered why I couldn’t find a proper diagnosis (not knowing what’s making your body sicker and weaker is VERY frustrating). However, I never gave up hope that the Lord would see me through. Eventhough I didn’t give up, there were days I couldn’t pray. I didn’t know what to say. I was so upset and discouraged. Still in my heart, I knew I was going through this for a reason and that He had a plan for me. I developed my website Living Natural Today as a result of my personal health challenges due to living in “today’s” world. It is a resource to help inspire others who might be struggling with the similar health related issues that I have experienced, and to give people a central resource in regards to living a more natural lifestyle. I realize that chemicals, toxins, environmental factors, stress and food all played a role as to why I became so ill. I am on the road to recovery and I now know that it IS POSSIBLE to feel better. Living naturally is a key to better health!” Click here to visit Living Natural Today. Be sure to download Teresa’s free Resource Guide for Toxins, too!

Listener Question Amy asks: “This has been bugging me for a while, hopefully you can help put my mind at ease All of the classes and instructions for sprouted flour go into all kinds of detail about why you dehydrate the sprouted berries at a certain temperature to preserve the enzymes (which I get in other contexts), but they all turn around and use the flour in baked goods that are baked at high temperatures, like 350, which seems to me would destroy all those enzymes I was so careful to preserve. What am I missing? Are there differences between dehydrating the berries for grinding into flour and actually baking with the flour? Thanks SO much for clearing this up for me!” Amy is referring to sprouting techniques in the Fundamentals module of our membership area. Listen to this episode for my answer! About Erica Mueller “Erica Mueller spent most of her childhood on a mini-farm. She’s lived the almost-self-sufficient lifestyle and aches to be there again.

I got the instructions for your sourdough starter through facebook; I have started a culture (several times now) but have some questions: I have had great growth and bubbles for 3-4 days, then the next addition will end up watery with a “pinkish” color/cover on the top – what is it? is it harmful? what did I do wrong? (too low temp?) when you say “cover loosely” what does this mean? the jar screw top not screwed on tight? a piece of saran wrap loosely placed over the top or secured tight with rubber band? where do you find a constant 85 degrees? and how important is it? during the day, I can put the starter in the garage (my house is kept at 80 and I can’t find anywhere – cabinets, closets, etc, that maintains 85), but at night it drops into the 70’s – I live in mid-florida. Thanks for your help….” Gloria is referring to the instructions found in our Sourdough eBook free sample chapter (which you can get, too, by going here). Listen to this episode for my answers!

KYF #153: (Pt. 3) All I Really Need To Know I Learned In The Kitchen... {Kitchen Rules 11-15}

We spend a lot of time in the kitchen, don't we? We pour our heart and soul into the foods we prepare to nourish ourselves and our families. Yet in the kitchen, so much more happens than what's on the surface. Sure, we make good food. Good and healing food. And.... we also make nurture relationships with our children and spouse... and friends. How we handle tasks, failures, and successes contributes to who we are as a person. Whether we grow into who God wants us to be... or whether we stagnate. Many of my life's lessons have come in the kitchen. And I know yours have, too. In this series, I'm sharing "kitchen rules" -- words to live by in the kitchen (and in the relationships, struggles, and successes that happen there). So we can grow stronger and better through our experiences there. Here are kitchen rules 11 to 15. Please share at show notes which rules spoke to you and why -- and also share if you like this series and want me to continue it! P.S. I was inspired to start this series by listening to another (unrelated) podcast in which the author shares "rules" for his field of business. I heard that and thought, why not? This will work for the kitchen, too! Because whatever field you're in, valuable lessons are there for the taking. Show notes, links, and video replay at http://KnowYourFoodPodcast.com/153

Andrea shares: “I use the freezing method most often for culinary herbs since it is easy and quick. Harvest your herbs, make sure they are dry, place them in a labeled container, and freeze. Super simple. This works for just about all leafy herbs. To save time during the busy harvest season, I don’t bother to remove the stems because it’s easy enough to do when I pull them out of the freezer to use them. You can also chop the herbs and put them into an ice cube tray with a little oil. Once frozen, pop them into a labeled bag or container. It’s a little more work on the front end, but can be a timesaver while cooking.” Click here to learn 4 more ways to preserve herbs. Want to submit a Tip of the Week? I might share it on the air!

Listener Question Christina asks: “How can I consume real, organic whole foods and lose weight? Ever since we began traditional cooking and food preparation, I’ve gained 10 lbs and I already had about 20 to lose. I don’t want to go on some extreme diet and forsake all the knowledge I’ve attained about nutrition in order to drop the weight but I am desperate. Any advice?” In this episode, I share how I have been following Trim Healthy Mama (100% traditional with no fake foods) since mid-May and have lost more than 25 pounds. I feel it’s an option that you, Christina, could consider and in the episode I share why and how.

Listener Question Sherry asks: “I think what is hard, is some of the vocabulary. If I don’t don’t the vocab I can’t understand much. I have never heard of words like probiotic, and Kefir, and don’t truly understand fermenting, or cultured. Like any subject the vocabulary is really key to understanding.” Listen to this episode for my answer. About Dr. Kaayla Daniel, PdD, CCN “Kaayla T. Daniel, PhD, CCN is known as The Naughty Nutritionist® because of her ability to outrageously and humorously debunk nutritional myths. She is Vice President of the Weston A.

About The Book: Nourishing Broth Nourishing Traditions examines where the modern food industry has hurt our nutrition and health through over-processed foods and fears of animal fats. Nourishing Broth will continue the look at the culinary practices of our ancestors, and it will explain the immense health benefits of homemade bone broth due to the gelatin and collagen that is present in real bone broth (vs. broth made from powders). Nourishing Broth will explore the science behind broth’s unique combination of amino acids, minerals and cartilage compounds. Some of the benefits of such broth are: quick recovery from illness and surgery, the healing of pain and inflammation, increased energy from better digestion, lessening of allergies, recovery from Crohn’s disease and a lessening of eating disorders because the fully balanced nutritional program lessens the cravings which make most diets fail. Diseases that bone broth can help heal are: Osteoarthritis, Osteoporosis, Psoriasis, Infectious Disease, digestive disorders, even Cancer, and it can help our skin and bones stay young. In addition, the book will serve as a handbook for various techniques for making broths-from simple chicken broth to rich, clear consommé, to shrimp shell stock. A variety of interesting stock-based recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner from throughout the world will complete the collection and help everyone get more nutrition in their diet.

KYF #087: CrossFit and the Traditional Food Lifestyle

CrossFit is taking the world by storm! Is it a modern craze or is there something deeper — even traditional — about it? Join me and Nathan Brammeier, blogger/podcaster at ReThinkTrueHealth and owner of CrossFit Adventure in Concord, California, as we get to the bottom of this and more. We’ll discuss what CrossFit is, why you might consider it for your own exercise program, how to get started, and even a look at the popular Paleo diet among CrossFitters.

I had migraines and fatigue for 6 days until I stopped taking them. My brain felt like it was inflamed. Now the headaches are almost gone but I feel so sick and nauseous and bloated. I threw up this morning. So I want to continue with probiotics but I’m nervous with what amount I should start with. Can I open up the capsules? And what do I do with the powder once it is open? Also, I read about neurotoxicity and that freaked me out. Could that happen with taking probiotics? Any help would be appreciated. I’m so glad I found your site, I will be following your guidelines the best I can!” Listen to this episode for my answer.

KYF #086: Is It Possible To Heal From Multiple Chemical Sensitivities?

Theresa suffered for years but doctors told her there was nothing wrong (yet she would probably be on prescription medications for the rest of her life!). After deep research of her own, she found out that she had multiple chemical sensitivities and embarked on her own healing journey with alternative health care and whole foods.

Listener Question Lori asks: “I made a sourdough starter yesterday, I used a pack of quick rise yeast, in warm water, 2 cups all-purpose flour, just a sprinkle of raw sugar and enough warm water to mix it well. Waited till it got a little bubbly on top, covered with cheese cloth. Today it was growing with bubbles, so I took out 2 cups and added 1 cup more flour. Mixed well till a good consistency. Wow, the pan cakes I made with the 2 cups I took out were the best I’ve ever had. I added my own vanilla paste to the batter, they were what makes your eyes roll back in your head! Yum. It is a good living start, growing as we speak. =) Have ever used quick rise yeast?” Listen to this episode for my answer. About Teresa Jungling and Living Natural Today “I (Teresa) struggled through many years of illness that medical doctors could not diagnose. After multiple CAT Scans, MRIs, ultra sounds, blood tests, and visits with specialists all ending in frustration, I looked into more natural healthcare. I was determined to find answers and not to be given prescription medications for the rest of my life! It was only after seeking alternative ways that I was diagnosed with endocrine and autonomic nervous system issues. The worst of it being major adrenal fatigue, hormone imbalances, immune problems and multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) to name a few. Also, in my pursuit of answers to health related issues, I became aware of many environmental toxins and chemicals. The more I researched, the more I learned about how unhealthy our food, beauty products, cleaning chemicals, and other commonly used items can be for us. As a Christian, there were times when I questioned why I was going through all of the frustration and pain that came from these health challenges. As I traveled from doctor to doctor, I wondered why I couldn’t find a proper diagnosis (not knowing what’s making your body sicker and weaker is VERY frustrating). However, I never gave up hope that the Lord would see me through. Eventhough I didn’t give up, there were days I couldn’t pray. I didn’t know what to say. I was so upset and discouraged. Still in my heart, I knew I was going through this for a reason and that He had a plan for me. I developed my website Living Natural Today as a result of my personal health challenges due to living in “today’s” world. It is a resource to help inspire others who might be struggling with the similar health related issues that I have experienced, and to give people a central resource in regards to living a more natural lifestyle. I realize that chemicals, toxins, environmental factors, stress and food all played a role as to why I became so ill. I am on the road to recovery and I now know that it IS POSSIBLE to feel better. Living naturally is a key to better health!” Click here to visit Living Natural Today. Be sure to download Teresa’s free Resource Guide for Toxins, too!

Listener Question Amy asks: “This has been bugging me for a while, hopefully you can help put my mind at ease All of the classes and instructions for sprouted flour go into all kinds of detail about why you dehydrate the sprouted berries at a certain temperature to preserve the enzymes (which I get in other contexts), but they all turn around and use the flour in baked goods that are baked at high temperatures, like 350, which seems to me would destroy all those enzymes I was so careful to preserve. What am I missing? Are there differences between dehydrating the berries for grinding into flour and actually baking with the flour? Thanks SO much for clearing this up for me!” Amy is referring to sprouting techniques in the Fundamentals module of our membership area. Listen to this episode for my answer! About Erica Mueller “Erica Mueller spent most of her childhood on a mini-farm. She’s lived the almost-self-sufficient lifestyle and aches to be there again.

I got the instructions for your sourdough starter through facebook; I have started a culture (several times now) but have some questions: I have had great growth and bubbles for 3-4 days, then the next addition will end up watery with a “pinkish” color/cover on the top – what is it? is it harmful? what did I do wrong? (too low temp?) when you say “cover loosely” what does this mean? the jar screw top not screwed on tight? a piece of saran wrap loosely placed over the top or secured tight with rubber band? where do you find a constant 85 degrees? and how important is it? during the day, I can put the starter in the garage (my house is kept at 80 and I can’t find anywhere – cabinets, closets, etc, that maintains 85), but at night it drops into the 70’s – I live in mid-florida. Thanks for your help….” Gloria is referring to the instructions found in our Sourdough eBook free sample chapter (which you can get, too, by going here). Listen to this episode for my answers!

KYF #153: (Pt. 3) All I Really Need To Know I Learned In The Kitchen... {Kitchen Rules 11-15}

We spend a lot of time in the kitchen, don't we? We pour our heart and soul into the foods we prepare to nourish ourselves and our families. Yet in the kitchen, so much more happens than what's on the surface. Sure, we make good food. Good and healing food. And.... we also make nurture relationships with our children and spouse... and friends. How we handle tasks, failures, and successes contributes to who we are as a person. Whether we grow into who God wants us to be... or whether we stagnate. Many of my life's lessons have come in the kitchen. And I know yours have, too. In this series, I'm sharing "kitchen rules" -- words to live by in the kitchen (and in the relationships, struggles, and successes that happen there). So we can grow stronger and better through our experiences there. Here are kitchen rules 11 to 15. Please share at show notes which rules spoke to you and why -- and also share if you like this series and want me to continue it! P.S. I was inspired to start this series by listening to another (unrelated) podcast in which the author shares "rules" for his field of business. I heard that and thought, why not? This will work for the kitchen, too! Because whatever field you're in, valuable lessons are there for the taking. Show notes, links, and video replay at http://KnowYourFoodPodcast.com/153

KYF #089: Seed Saving Connects Communities

Seed saving — why should you do it and how do you get started? Meet Bill McDorman, author of the free online book Basic Seed Saving and co-founder of the Rocky Mountain Seed Alliance. His mission: to connect communities with the seeds that sustain them. Bill and his team created (and take on the road) the innovative Seed School — which has graduated over 550 Seed Citizens near and far! Get to know Bill and more about seed saving through the links and information below, and of course through this podcast. Plus… the tip of the week! Won’t play for you? Try here. Mobile or desktop users, you can hear my podcast with Stitcher, on-demand and on-the-go. (What’s Stitcher?) You can also get it on iTunes or subscribe in the Podcasts app. Tip of the Week: Freezing Herbs In today’s tip of the week, I share how easily you can freeze herbs. It’s easy and quick! Andrea shares: “I use the freezing method most often for culinary herbs since it is easy and quick. Harvest your herbs, make sure they are dry, place them in a labeled container, and freeze. Super simple. This works for just about all leafy herbs. To save time during the busy harvest season, I don’t bother to remove the stems because it’s easy enough to do when I pull them out of the freezer to use them. You can also chop the herbs and put them into an ice cube tray with a little oil. Once frozen, pop them into a labeled bag or container. It’s a little more work on the front end, but can be a timesaver while cooking.” Click here to learn 4 more ways to preserve herbs. Want to submit a Tip of the Week? I might share it on the air!

Listener Question Christina asks: “How can I consume real, organic whole foods and lose weight? Ever since we began traditional cooking and food preparation, I’ve gained 10 lbs and I already had about 20 to lose. I don’t want to go on some extreme diet and forsake all the knowledge I’ve attained about nutrition in order to drop the weight but I am desperate. Any advice?” In this episode, I share how I have been following Trim Healthy Mama (100% traditional with no fake foods) since mid-May and have lost more than 25 pounds. I feel it’s an option that you, Christina, could consider and in the episode I share why and how. About Bill McDorman “Bill McDorman is co-director and co-founder of the Rocky Mountain Seed Alliance (RMSA), a new nonprofit seed conservation organization serving the Rocky Mountain West. He was previous director of Native Seeds/SEARCH in Tucson. Bill founded 3 seed companies and cofounded several nonprofits including the Sawtooth Botanical Garden in Hailey, Idaho. He is author of Basic Seed Saving which he wrote in 1994. He and his wife Belle Starr, former Deputy Director of NS/S and codirector of the Rocky Mountain Seed Alliance created an innovative week-long training called Seed School, the educational center-piece of RMSA. The course has graduated over 550 Seed Citizens in slightly more than four years. Bill is a passionate and knowledgeable presenter, inspires his audiences to connect deeply with the world in which they live and rejoin the ritual of seed saving.“ Click here to visit Rocky Mountain Seed Alliance or for more information about all their resources and events.  About The Book: Basic Seed Saving Basic Seed Saving is a 48-page paperback book written by RMSA Executive Director Bill McDorman.

Listener Question Sherry asks: “I think what is hard, is some of the vocabulary. If I don’t don’t the vocab I can’t understand much. I have never heard of words like probiotic, and Kefir, and don’t truly understand fermenting, or cultured. Like any subject the vocabulary is really key to understanding.” Listen to this episode for my answer. About Dr. Kaayla Daniel, PdD, CCN “Kaayla T. Daniel, PhD, CCN is known as The Naughty Nutritionist® because of her ability to outrageously and humorously debunk nutritional myths. She is Vice President of the Weston A. Price Foundation, on the Board of Directors of the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund, and author of The Whole Soy Story: The Dark Side of America’s Favorite Health Food. Dr. Daniel has been a guest on The Dr. Oz Show, PBS Healing Quest, NPR’s People’s Pharmacy, and many other shows, and has shared the stage with Dr. Mark Hyman, JJ Virgin, Gary Taubes, Charles Poliquin, Dr. Joseph Mercola, Sally Fallon Morell, Joel Salatin, and David Wolfe.” Click here to visit Dr. Kaayla Daniel’s site. About The Book: Nourishing Broth Nourishing Traditions examines where the modern food industry has hurt our nutrition and health through over-processed foods and fears of animal fats. Nourishing Broth will continue the look at the culinary practices of our ancestors, and it will explain the immense health benefits of homemade bone broth due to the gelatin and collagen that is present in real bone broth (vs. broth made from powders). Nourishing Broth will explore the science behind broth’s unique combination of amino acids, minerals and cartilage compounds. Some of the benefits of such broth are: quick recovery from illness and surgery, the healing of pain and inflammation, increased energy from better digestion, lessening of allergies, recovery from Crohn’s disease and a lessening of eating disorders because the fully balanced nutritional program lessens the cravings which make most diets fail. Diseases that bone broth can help heal are: Osteoarthritis, Osteoporosis, Psoriasis, Infectious Disease, digestive disorders, even Cancer, and it can help our skin and bones stay young. In addition, the book will serve as a handbook for various techniques for making broths-from simple chicken broth to rich, clear consommé, to shrimp shell stock. A variety of interesting stock-based recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner from throughout the world will complete the collection and help everyone get more nutrition in their diet.

CrossFit is taking the world by storm! Is it a modern craze or is there something deeper — even traditional — about it? Join me and Nathan Brammeier, blogger/podcaster at ReThinkTrueHealth and owner of CrossFit Adventure in Concord, California, as we get to the bottom of this and more. We’ll discuss what CrossFit is, why you might consider it for your own exercise program, how to get started, and even a look at the popular Paleo diet among CrossFitters.

I had migraines and fatigue for 6 days until I stopped taking them. My brain felt like it was inflamed. Now the headaches are almost gone but I feel so sick and nauseous and bloated. I threw up this morning. So I want to continue with probiotics but I’m nervous with what amount I should start with. Can I open up the capsules? And what do I do with the powder once it is open? Also, I read about neurotoxicity and that freaked me out. Could that happen with taking probiotics? Any help would be appreciated. I’m so glad I found your site, I will be following your guidelines the best I can!” Listen to this episode for my answer. Lara, here are some links for you: Probiotics: Taking It Slowly Popular Probiotic Strain May Induce Neurotoxicity (at Mommypotamus) About Nathan Brammeier “With an organic chemistry background, Nathan worked for 13 years in a chemistry lab.

KYF #086: Is It Possible To Heal From Multiple Chemical Sensitivities?

Theresa suffered for years but doctors told her there was nothing wrong (yet she would probably be on prescription medications for the rest of her life!). After deep research of her own, she found out that she had multiple chemical sensitivities and embarked on her own healing journey with alternative health care and whole foods.

Listener Question Lori asks: “I made a sourdough starter yesterday, I used a pack of quick rise yeast, in warm water, 2 cups all-purpose flour, just a sprinkle of raw sugar and enough warm water to mix it well. Waited till it got a little bubbly on top, covered with cheese cloth. Today it was growing with bubbles, so I took out 2 cups and added 1 cup more flour. Mixed well till a good consistency. Wow, the pan cakes I made with the 2 cups I took out were the best I’ve ever had. I added my own vanilla paste to the batter, they were what makes your eyes roll back in your head! Yum. It is a good living start, growing as we speak. =) Have ever used quick rise yeast?” Listen to this episode for my answer. About Teresa Jungling and Living Natural Today “I (Teresa) struggled through many years of illness that medical doctors could not diagnose. After multiple CAT Scans, MRIs, ultra sounds, blood tests, and visits with specialists all ending in frustration, I looked into more natural healthcare. I was determined to find answers and not to be given prescription medications for the rest of my life! It was only after seeking alternative ways that I was diagnosed with endocrine and autonomic nervous system issues. The worst of it being major adrenal fatigue, hormone imbalances, immune problems and multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) to name a few. Also, in my pursuit of answers to health related issues, I became aware of many environmental toxins and chemicals. The more I researched, the more I learned about how unhealthy our food, beauty products, cleaning chemicals, and other commonly used items can be for us. As a Christian, there were times when I questioned why I was going through all of the frustration and pain that came from these health challenges. As I traveled from doctor to doctor, I wondered why I couldn’t find a proper diagnosis (not knowing what’s making your body sicker and weaker is VERY frustrating). However, I never gave up hope that the Lord would see me through. Eventhough I didn’t give up, there were days I couldn’t pray. I didn’t know what to say. I was so upset and discouraged. Still in my heart, I knew I was going through this for a reason and that He had a plan for me. I developed my website Living Natural Today as a result of my personal health challenges due to living in “today’s” world. It is a resource to help inspire others who might be struggling with the similar health related issues that I have experienced, and to give people a central resource in regards to living a more natural lifestyle. I realize that chemicals, toxins, environmental factors, stress and food all played a role as to why I became so ill. I am on the road to recovery and I now know that it IS POSSIBLE to feel better. Living naturally is a key to better health!” Click here to visit Living Natural Today. Be sure to download Teresa’s free Resource Guide for Toxins, too!

Listener Question Amy asks: “This has been bugging me for a while, hopefully you can help put my mind at ease All of the classes and instructions for sprouted flour go into all kinds of detail about why you dehydrate the sprouted berries at a certain temperature to preserve the enzymes (which I get in other contexts), but they all turn around and use the flour in baked goods that are baked at high temperatures, like 350, which seems to me would destroy all those enzymes I was so careful to preserve. What am I missing? Are there differences between dehydrating the berries for grinding into flour and actually baking with the flour? Thanks SO much for clearing this up for me!” Amy is referring to sprouting techniques in the Fundamentals module of our membership area. Listen to this episode for my answer! About Erica Mueller “Erica Mueller spent most of her childhood on a mini-farm. She’s lived the almost-self-sufficient lifestyle and aches to be there again. In the meantime she homesteads on half an acre in town and enjoys teaching her kids about gardening, food preserving and cooking. You can visit her blog, MomPrepares.com and follow her on Facebook or Twitter.” Click here to visit Erica’s blog, Mom Prepares.

I got the instructions for your sourdough starter through facebook; I have started a culture (several times now) but have some questions: I have had great growth and bubbles for 3-4 days, then the next addition will end up watery with a “pinkish” color/cover on the top – what is it? is it harmful? what did I do wrong? (too low temp?) when you say “cover loosely” what does this mean? the jar screw top not screwed on tight? a piece of saran wrap loosely placed over the top or secured tight with rubber band? where do you find a constant 85 degrees? and how important is it? during the day, I can put the starter in the garage (my house is kept at 80 and I can’t find anywhere – cabinets, closets, etc, that maintains 85), but at night it drops into the 70’s – I live in mid-florida. Thanks for your help….” Gloria is referring to the instructions found in our Sourdough eBook free sample chapter (which you can get, too, by going here). Listen to this episode for my answers!
