Soup of Health Recipe

This soup is good pretty much any time at all. It is pack full of vitamins, minerals, and fibre. If you are doing a cleanse then fibre is key around day two. Feel free to play around with the spices, the cayenne pepper is of particular importance when you are cleansing. One of the biggest perks of this soup is bio-availability.  There is an endless debate over which is better, cooked or raw food.  The answer of course lies somewhere in the middle.  Cooked is good sometimes and raw is good other times.  The reason this soup is called soup of health is because it is very easy to digest giving you a ton of vitamins and minerals without much digestive effort.  If you are sick,...

How to Heal a Broken Bone Fast

TLDR  of how to heal a broken bone at the bottom. Note that throughout this article I have linked to the products I use and recommend.  If you click on a link and buy the product I do get a small percentage.

Kombucha Recipe

This recipe makes about 14 cups of kombucha.  There are a number of different sweeteners you can use for this, we have played around with all sorts from cane sugar, to blueberry based sugar to coconut sugar.  They all kind of work, but our kombucha always turns out best with just regular ol' sugar.  We aim for the organic stuff, but if cost is an issue non-organic is alright. What makes kombucha so great is how cheap and easy it is to make.  If you buy it from the store, one liter of it can cost as much as $14.00!  When you make it at home it costs pennies. There are a few places to buy a SCOBY (mother).  You can buy it on amazon, you can...

Yogurt Recipe

This yogurt recipe makes 1 quart.  Like kombucha, yogurt is easy to make and very cheap.  You can get a yogurt starter kit from most health food stores, but we usually recommend just buying a quart or more of good quality organic yogurt and using that as your starter.  If you are luck enough, you may be able to get some yogurt from a friend who has been fermenting for a while.  For some reason, if you have had a culture going for a while it seems to work better. Prep: 15min Cook (ferment): 10-20 hrs Ingredients 1 quart whole milk 1/4 cup plain whole milk yogurt.  Organic is best. Instructions Have a 1 quart container, or several small ones, ready.  Make sure they have plastic lids. In a large, heavy-bottomed...
