Sunday Snippets: September 18, 2011


Welcome to Sunday Snippets. This is a weekly feature that allows you to take a quick peek at posts that I loved from my FAT TUESDAY carnival. I’ll also summarize some posts from my blog from the past week. If you missed some or didn’t have time to read the whole post this “snippet” will give you the gist of it.

Here are some articles and recipes that I picked from FAT TUESDAY that really stood out for me. Each week I’ll be featuring some links from FAT TUESDAY so be sure to link up your best posts! If you are not a blogger, this is a place to connect with fascinating writings from all over the blogosphere!

This week we had so many wonderful selections it was really hard to choose… but here are a few of my favorites!

Coconut Cream Pie (Grain -Free and Gluten-Free) from Coconut Mama. This recipe received the most attention and if you click over there, you will see why.

Nourishing Alternatives To Lotions from Nourished and Nurtured. This is such a hot topic — people really want alternatives to the expensive and chemical laden lotions and creams out on the market. Most commercial brands have lots of toxic chemicals, even those from the health food stores. This post offers simple solutions to that dilemma.

Pumpkin Flowers (stuffed and fired) from Traditional foods — What a delicious idea!

Ginger-Pear Muffins (GAPS Grain and Gluten-free) from Nourished and Nurtured — Wow! These look fabulous! I love pear and I love ginger. That must be an interesting combination.  They are made with coconut flour and pastured eggs! These are for me.Thanks Sarah!

Video: Soy Free Chicken Feed from Gnowflins. Wardeh shows us just what clabbered milk is and how to use it to feed her adorable baby chicks and chickens a healthy alternative to soy feed. There’s also the great sour cream as a side result. Thanks Wardeh I love watching your videos!

In addition, here are three posts from my blog this week that you may want to take a peek at…

Video/Recipe: Homemade Ghee — Video demonstration for making ghee from grass fed butter.

Probiotics: The New Therapeutic Frontier — This article talks about the new emerging science of genetic identification of beneficial bacteria in the gut. This allows for in depth study of bacteria that may help certain specific conditions. These bacteria may then be formulated into a probiotic supplement specifically for that problem. THIS IS HUGE!

Celiac: Inherited or Acquired? — Incidences of celiac disease are increasing to epidemic proportions. Some say it is inherited, but 50 years ago the incidence was 7 times less. Can it be certain specific changes to wheat and gluten in the food supply that are causing the intense immune reactions?

I hope you enjoyed these short “snips” from the real world and I hope to see you next week!

    Thanks Jill!  What a great idea to have Sunday Snippets!  I’ve been trying to reduce my time on the computer, so this is a great way for me to have a quick snapshot.
