We admit it...we love pancakes. Over the years, we have come up with so many ways to make pancakes healthier that it's become a challenge to see how many nutritious foods we can get stuffed into one pancake. We tend to do gluten free (GF) pancakes, using a little flour as possible, but this one has a special twist with added coconut flour and hemp seeds.
When you see how easy this recipe is, you will never want to buy yogurt again. Full of beneficial bacteria, and easier to digest, yogurt is a staple food in much of the world. Considered a fermented food, yogurt is a great way to improve your digestion.
This is literally the very first dish Hillary cooked for Ryan way back in the day. It's cheap to make, quick, and packed full of garlic, which is a favorite in the Sthealthy garden and kitchen. It adds a flair of Mediterranean flavor with pepperoncini peppers, extra virgin olive oil, garlic, and parmesan.
As discussed in our HHH Food Friday Episode #14, we really like making pizza crust with cauliflower. It makes the base of a wonderful pizza that we like to add wild game, veggies, and cheese too. This recipe is 100% grain free, but is not dairy free, because we like cheese on our pizza! Removing the heavy breaded crust allows you to enjoy this recipe without the bloat!
Today, kombucha is frequently seen in most grocery stores throughout the country. Originally known as a "hippie" drink, kombucha is now more accepted and is a great way to get beneficial probiotics into your diet. If you want to save money and have kombucha ready to drink whenever, you can make your own kombucha easily and affordably. Let's go over a few of the very important ingredients and rules to brewing your own kombucha.
In the HHH Episode #11 we talk all things meat prep- getting your wild game out of the mountains, home, and then how to make things like summer sausage yourself. This is a simple way to enjoy your deer or elk, AND knowing what exactly is going into it!
Yep, it's true, we love kale. Our garden is usually overflowing with it from May- December and we can never use all of it. This year we got smart and threw it in the Excalibur dehydrator, and for weeks we had the "lovely" smell of kale filling the house.
In our household, we call bone broth "liquid gold". It's a wonderful way to get healthy and healing compounds into the gut to help restore and heal the lining. You can make your bone broth out of the following bone types:
- Beef bones (or we call ox tail) preferably from grass fed cows.
- Wild game of any kind, if you are so lucky to get them out of the backcountry!
- Poultry, chicken or turkey - use the neck, skin, and all bones.
- Seafood, heads, tails, and bones of fish, fish heads.
To make your broth, place the bones of choice in a 6-7 quart slow cooker/crock pot. Cover completely with COLD water and then 2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar or red wine vinegar. (this helps bones release collagen- very important step!)
For more flavor, add vegetable such as onions, carrots, celery, garlic, greens, garlic, herbs.
Cook overnight or 8 hours, and then strain out all solids, pouring the "liquid gold" into glass jars, or ziploc containers for the freezer. Once it is totally cool, skim off the fat and then store immediately in 2 to 4 cup portions.
Use for all soup bases, or eat alone. This is the best gut healing food around!
