I was reminded of how alfalfa herbal tea helped me recover my energy and build my blood back after having 3 babies in 25 months!
I even felt alfalfa helped me rebound after I was the very tired mother of colicky twin babies!
Are you as swamped with tomatoes right now as we are? Did you know that there is an healthier alternative to canning them?
Freezing produce was not a viable preservation method back in Grandma’s day. Grandma canned instead. Now we have options. Freezing is as close to eating raw as you can get.
Elderberry tincture and syrup are so easy to make! I wouldn’t be without them!
Sambucus canadensis is one of the best “medicine chest” plants.
When our children were small, we developed allergies to many thing because of exposure to mold. I began reading that local honey would help with allergies. That was the beginning of our interest in honey and bees.
As an RN and researcher, I learned that true raw honey was worth its weight in gold for many medicinal purposes. There’s a simple principle that’s explained in countless books on folk medicine.
Here’s my version of some pretty phenomenal power bars. A great source of protein, it’s a fun way to get those nutritious nuts, seeds and dried fruit into your diet. My purpose behind it was to have a good, but healthy, snack on hand. Several of our family members in particular were requesting something to give a boost of energy through the day.
Thank you Lindsay at Passionate Homemaking for the inspiration. I’ll say that again…these power bars are de-LISH-us! Using four superfoods (flax or chia seed, coconut oil, raw honey, and raw almonds) these gluten-free bars pack a nutritional punch, and really fill you up between meals….
