Antidepressants – “Natural” and Otherwise

I was on antidepressants for over a decade. They probably saved my life. If you’re taking them and want to try eliminating food, keep taking them until you feel like the depression/anxiety is gone, don’t stop first. I could tell when I could stop taking them even though I hadn’t had a break in over 10 years. If you suffer from anxiety or depression but you find it’s fairly manageable (or you can survive without antidepressants), I highly recommend 5 Read More

Pregnancy and life update – Mid July (engagement!)

(I updated the chicken broth recipe¬†and the chicken wing recipe. They’re actually even easier now!) I got engaged!!! Andrey was amazing. He kept trying to do something big but I’m soooo pregnant and not into excitement at all. I tried to explain that hiding under my covers is exciting enough haha. He brought me out on a boat on Canada day as a surprise. It was really sweet and great planning but it looked like it was¬†going to pour. Can’t Read More

Political correctness leaching its way into my Facebook mom’s group

I figure most of the people who come to this blog find out about it though my dad, Jordan Peterson. I’m happy about that, I don’t care how people get here, I just want them to know what kind of problems their diet is potentially causing. I generally avoid most of my dads “controversy” because I honestly think there are more important things for me to focus on. Mainly health. I also believe that mental illness accounts for a lot Read More

Pan fried collard greens

I eat these all the time. Daily. They’re so good for you, they’re so yummy, and they don’t bother me at all. 1. Put approx. 2 tablespoons of coconut oil in a frying pan. This might seem like a lot but it’s good for you and it makes the collards tastier. 2. Wash collard greens. You buy them in a bunch, I’ll cook about one bunch per person. Usually this is a little bit too much, but it’s better than Read More

Easiest chicken wings in the world

I eat these all the time. Like once a day because they’re awesome and easy. Sometimes I wake up early and stick them in the oven and then go back to sleep so they’re ready when I actually want to get up. Or I eat them watching TV. Super easy. 1. Buy chicken wings (these are called split chicken wings) – Andrey and I usually split about a kg. So that’s just over a pound each. I get them at Read More

How to make homemade chicken broth

Once you’re done eating your chicken wings, or baked chicken, or whatever that has bones, follow these steps: 1. If you’re lazy, put the bones in a ziplock bag and freeze them until you’re not lazy. I have many a bag of frozen bones in my freezer. 2. Once you’re not lazy: 3. Preheat oven to 300 degrees on bake. 4. Put all your chicken bones on an oven safe pan (this doesn’t just have to be chicken wing bones, Read More

Should you start an elimination diet? (How to begin a month long elimination diet)

Looking back on how I did my elimination diet, I can see a number of things I did wrong. This is a post describing how I would do an elimination diet now (pretty much what I’m doing now anyways). This might seem extremely strict… and it is. Not much I can say about that except that it’s only a month, and you might be able to reintroduce most things back in right away. This is the diet that helped my Read More

Pregnancy update – Week 32

Everything’s going great! Now that I’m not eating anything with sugar, my mood is good, no arthritis, seems pretty good. I’m starting to get pretty big. Getting around is getting weird. And I have to pee quite a bit.. Less than 2 months now until I have a child. So that’s incredibly weird. I still can’t believe that I can grow one inside of me… You’d think humans wouldn’t be phased by that but it’s still weird. My ankles have Read More

Olive brand that’s a-okay by me, (preservative free, etc.)

Hopefully this post will eventually be called “olive brandS that are preservative free”. I’m looking for olive brands that are only made with olives and salt, water or olive oil, and are preservative free. So far I have this brand: (and it is sooo good – you can also eat the olive oil it’s in after you’re done with the olives). http://stevesproduce-organics.com/products2.html It’s called silver leaf organic olives. The ingredients are olives and olive oil! They have a store locater Read More

More good news (olives!! and probiotics and activated charcoal)

This has been my diet for the last month and a half: Lettuce Cilantro Beef Chicken Collard greens Apple cider vinegar Coconut oil Olive oil A ton of salt. REALLY boring. But everything else (so it seemed) was giving me arthritis, skin issues, itchy skin, and depression. As you know, I cut out fish in April… and before that I cut out turmeric. I cut out everything I could think of that might be giving me issues. And I got Read More
