Better Than Bacon Recipe

It’s actually fried jerky with fat (trust me it’s amazing), but better than bacon. Dad agrees. He named the title and came up with the recipe. Approximate time: 15 minutes We eat a lot of fatty cuts of steak (rib steak for instance). If you save the fat instead of cutting around it and throwing it out (and store it in the fridge), you can make this delicious dish. It’s shockingly good, try it out. Ingredients: Steak fat Jerky (can 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

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 anyway). 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

DIY toothpaste – a good addition to the diet

This is WAY better for you, and super cheap. Regular toothpastes have emulsifiers, flavouring, and some ingredients that can give susceptible people mouth ulcers. It’s a marketing gimmick. My mom started making her own toothpaste and I literally laughed at her. Then swore I would never get to that point… and now I’m here. (Be careful who you make fun of. Seriously. I am so sorry gluten free hippies, I should never have doubted you). I started making my own Read More

Tammy’s Shepherd’s Pie

My mom came up with this, its great. This lasts two adults about two days. I make it once a week, it’s wonderful, especially in the winter. Add salt and pepper afterwards to your fancy. It’s one of my favourite dishes. You can switch up the ground beef with any cooked meat (chicken, leftover turkey, etc.) I’ll add a picture this week when I make it! 3 lbs ground beef 3 large sweet potatoes 10 parsnips 2 heads of broccoli 1 Read More
