Another American classic: Pork & Beans. These pork and beans are made in a crockpot, which makes it so easy.
Since we’re making ours with chicken stock, this recipe for pork and beans is much more nutrient-dense than what you’d normally get.

You may have made your own lacto-fermented salsa before. It’s easy enough, but it does take some time to chop all the tomatoes and onions, etc.
I have just discovered a way to make real lacto-fermented salsa in just 30 seconds.
I’ve been dreaming of going to Animal Restaurant here in Los Angeles for almost a year now. Ever since I read the review in The New Yorker magazine.
My husband made my dreams come true this Valentine’s Day.
Now, maybe eating calf’s brains and pig’s ears may not be your idea of romantic.
But you know what they say: the way to someone’s heart is through the stomach. And pig’s ears in my stomach makes my heart go all fluttery.
The Vegetarian Myth: Food, Justice, and Sustainability by Lierre Kieth is one of the best books I’ve read in at least a decade. Maybe two.
This book is right up there with Malcolm Gladwell’s books. It is as groundbreaking to food and health as The Tipping Point was (and still is) to marketing.
In Hollywood-ese, The Vegetarian Myth is Michael Pollan’s meets Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass. Well-researched, world-changing, and at the same time, gorgeously written and profound.
My stepdad made this grass-fed beef stew when we visited my family this past Christmas. Everyone was floored by how good it was.
While the holidays have passed, it is still winter. And nothing is better than comfort food on an icy cold day. I can’t think of anything better than a hearty beef stew. You can make this for dinner and have leftovers for lunch the next day.
We all know good nutrition will build a strong body and set a child up for good health. And if you’ve read Dr. Weston A. Price’s book, Nutrition and Physical Degeneration, you know that it is possible to actually widen the palate, or the jaw and facial structure, of a child — with the right diet.
According to Dr. Price, it is the fat soluble activators, vitamins A, D and K2 — found in foods like liver, pastured egg yolks, grass-fed cheese, butter and cream — that build proper bone structure — and prevent a narrow jaw and crooked teeth.
However, can you actually expand a child’s palate after he or she is born? Or is it only possible when they are in utero?
