Somewhere near our 6th wedding anniversary, I killed our 3rd blender.
At which time Mr. Native Texan implored “Will you please find the best blender, and BUY it!?”
I am not a huge expert on flouride or dental health, but I do know that sulfates are not healthy. So why would I put them in my mouth? Or even worse, in my children’s mouths?
It’s such a shame that many personal care products contain sulfates, parabens and other nasty ingredients that can contribute to cancer and other health problems. Slowly, but surely, I am learning to use products that are safe for the whole family, as well as for the environment.
We love smoothies here at the Yankee Homestead. Who doesn’t?
Listed below is one of our favorite combinations of ingredients, although we do experiment from time to time.
A wonderful thing about smoothies is that the ingredients and amounts are endlessly variable!
The amounts listed below produce about 4 cups finished product, which is enough for a tall glass for yours truly, plus 2 child-sized servings.
Have fun experimenting!Read More
Note: This is the same recipe as Gluten-Eggs-Dairy-Sugar-Free Pancakes (Large Batch), only doubled. It makes a LOT of pancakes!! (This is time-consuming, so be sure to designate an adequate block of time for your Extra-Large Batch).
Personally, I figure that if I’m going to all the trouble of lugging out all these specialized ingredients, I might as well make as many pancakes as I possibly can.
The Extra-Large Batch makes approximately 120 pancakes, which is enough pancakes to last our familly of 4 approximately two weeks. (Did I mention that I live in a house with all boys?) Read More
We finally landed on a recipe for gluten-eggs-dairy-sugar-free pancakes!
Almond flour adds protein and the flax/chia combo adds nutrition. (Pastured eggs are great, too, if you can have them.)
This Large Batch makes approximately 60 pancakes, which keep well in the fridge or can be frozen for future use. (This is time-consuming, so be sure to designate a block of time for your Large Batch of GEDS Pancakes). Read More
