It’s been an interesting month here on the Great South Bay. We had unseasonably high temperatures and then the major storm of the decade. Out in the blogosphere there has also been a lot of activity that I’ll tell you about.

With the election just past, I think you should be relieved that it is over no matter who won because we won’t have to listen to those nasty commercials anymore! Celebrate by making this wonderful election cake from Nourished Kitchen.

With the holiday season coming and pumpkins abound, I think you should make this Grain-Free Pumpkin Coffee-Cake from Unmistakable Food. It looks very good. Mommypotamus also has a delicious looking Pumpkin Spice Custard with Marrow Infusion. Wow! That is an awesome idea!

With the GMO controversy around Prop 37 still an issue, check out this post from Mama Natural about How to Avoid GMOs (for real).

At this time of year, one likes to look their best. If you have problems with your hair you should read this post from Whole Natural Life called How I Came To Love My Hair. It is really interesting and informative and uses all natural products!

At this time of year you might be invited to lots of holiday parties at restaurants. If you are at a restaurant, you should be concerned about healthy cooking oils, and should ask the waiter what oils they use in cooking. Unfortunately, they will probably not be using good saturated fats from pastured animals fro cooking, but you could do that at home and learn how to render lard. If you are traveling, there is a way to get real food away from home.

This time of the year many folks get stressed out and come down with a cold. Here is a good post about common cold remedies from Holistic Squid.

Lots of folks want healthy kids and one of the ways to achieve that is by giving them homemade vegetable soup using homemade chicken stock.

How has your month been?

I enjoy reading your blog! I have a question for you. I would like to work on a detox and am trying to figure out what produce to concentrate on to make healthy smoothies and or juices. I am working on heavy metal detox, (past history includes pcos, elevated liver enzymes, bloating) I am doing very well now, but I still have a little work to do to have completely regular periods. I am already eating a real food gluten free dairy free diet. Do you believe in either smoothies or juicing, and what green produce would you recommend? I know some greens should probably be cooked.

Hi Kristie,
Juicing is good for cleansing, but you should be sure to have enough nutrient dense foods before a cleanse. Bone broths are good for that.

Any of the leafy green crucifer family should not be juiced such as Kale, spinach, collards, as they are very high in lectins and other substances that inhibit digestion — they are also goitrogens when raw so if you have thyroid issues I would avoid that as well. Here are some links to a detox I did on the blog using GAPS Intro stages.

Here is a post about juicing:

Hope this helps!
