Hearty Mushroom Soup (Vegan, Grain Free)

This mushroom soup has a deep round flavor without being overwhelming. The carrots and potatoes make it heartier while keeping it light on the digestion.

I loved it in concept, before it was even born, which is why last week I decided to made a vat. My husband and I had it for lunch and […]

Weekly Meal Plan and Fasting Preparations

Recently, in a post about buckwheat crepes on The Nourishing Gourmet, I shared that I was contemplating whether or not I should commit to this year’s Russian Orthodox Lenten fast.

It is more or less a vegan fast (with the exception of shellfish, considered a non-luxury food) that lasts for 40 days leading up to […]

Weekly Meal Plan (and thoughts on time management in the kitchen)

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! We spent a lot of time outside, watched a little House of Cards and took naps each day. Now I’m taking a little time to plan our meals for the week.

Leaky Gut: A Simple Explanation (Part 1 of a 2-Part Series)

Years ago, before I had children, I saw a renowned chiropractor for some on-going neck discomfort and general fatigue. At the end of the session, she told me I had “leaky gut”, sold me some supplements, offered a couple of diet tips (more protein, less carbs) and told me to come back in a […]

“We have good food here.”

Last week, Lucas (our 7-yr. old) had a friend over after school. They were sitting down to seconds of popcorn when I overheard part of their conversation from the next room.
