This recipe is for an individual serving of olive and herb grain-free FAUX-caccia (fake focaccia, get it? hee hee). I cooked it in the microwave so it took less than 5 minutes to make. This fake focaccia is my own variation of "Low Carb Bun For One" from Free Range Cookies.
Several days ago, Sunflower Farmers Market asked their Twitter followers to name their favorite no-bake homemade desserts. https://twitter.com/shopsunflower/status/208621839000403968 We don't eat a lot of traditional dessert in our house - we consider fruit to be dessert and we don't even eat that every day. If you're like us but sometimes want a little something extra, I … Continue reading Easy no cook desserts
Here's a recipe I came up with a couple weeks ago. It sounds weird, but it's yummy (if you like sauerkraut). 1 egg 1/2 tsp dry yellow mustard 1/4 tsp tumeric ~1/8 tsp sea salt (to taste) 1/3 - 1/2 cup sauerkraut (preferably the kind that is still "alive" and made via lacto-fermentation, not with vinegar) … Continue reading Sauerkraut Burrito
This blog has officially entered a state of blathy (blog apathy). I was inspired to acknowledge this sad condition by the Clever Zebo blog's own admission of suffering from this affliction. So... "What the heck happened," you ask? Well, the problem wasn't lack of ideas. I have about 10 posts in draft form. But I … Continue reading Blathy

At Sunflower Farmers Market, their sales run Wednesday to Wednesday, so you get the sales from both ads ("last week" and "this week") on Wednesdays. Yay! Savings galore! For Whole Foods, their rotisserie chickens are $6.99 … Continue reading Broccoli chicken salad
There are some great free classes coming up this month here in Salt Lake City! I was sad that I missed the Vegan Substitutions class at Sunflower Farmers Market last Tuesday. The vegan diet doesn't work for me right now but I love learning about food and how other people maintain their health through their … Continue reading Free food classes in Salt Lake City
We must have sweets on the mind over here at NBD... Maybe Easter has something to do with it? Here in the USA, we are conditioned from an early age to gorge ourselves on candy at Halloween and Easter and be "OK" with that. Now that I'm following the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, the only sweetener … Continue reading Sugar = Toxin?
I got a little overzealous this past weekend and baked up a storm. It all started with an innocent question to co-workers on Thursday afternoon. "Do you guys usually bring in treats for Valentine's Day?" I said I was thinking about baking something for my husband for Valentine's Day and I would make a little … Continue reading SCD Valentine’s Day treats
Thanks to Tara at Local Food Bee, I discovered Chad's Produce and bought a bunch of stuff this past weekend. Rainbow Carrots (1 bag) Cucumbers (3) Arugula (gallon-sized ziploc) Cilantro (he gave me his last 2 quart-sized bags for the price of 1 because it looked "wilty") Eggs (dozen) Strawberries (1 pint basket) Black walnuts … Continue reading Chad’s Produce, Market on State, Caputo’s
I had a great time at the 2011 SLC Sustainability Summit yesterday. I went because I wanted to connect with other people who are interested in increasing awareness of and improving access to sustainably grown food. I was a little nervous that I wouldn't have anyone to talk to; I was afraid everyone there would … Continue reading 2011 Salt Lake Sustainability Summit – Reconnecting to Natural Genius
