You can hashtag this #wapf or #goodfat or #raw or #probiotic….

or how about just #AMAZING!  Because seriously, this little trick is awesome-sauce.

My mother-in-law’s naturopath told me to do this to get lots of good bacteria into her diet, plus a generous amount of healthy fat.

Also, did I mention this is DELICIOUS?!

________________________________

If you follow this blog, you know that I (Daja) have moved from Southern California to Maine.  We have a little farm we call Kylo. It’s a slow-and-steady-wins-the-race kind of thing.  We got a huge garden in this year and are gradually adding our animals. What blows me away is how wonderful the soil is here. I’ve been gardening in California for years and it is definitely an uphill battle–what with the water issues, intense heat, clay-like soil.  But here, it has been much easier and much more delightful to garden. Stuff actually grows here without so many tears.  The downside is that in Southern California I gardened year around. Here, you have 90-120 days. So, you better be movin’!

Today I sat down at my computer and my ten year old son walked by and said, “Whatcha doing?”  I replied, “Ordering a few things online.” He said, “Let me guess. Canning supplies.” #dontjudgeme Read More

What’s That Smell? (Dealing with body odor, naturally)

Blog | Raising Arrows 1 Comment

[We’ve been writing and sharing a lot lately about raising our children into adulthood.  This post is part of that series. You can find all those posts here: Young Adults.]

I have been away from home for about a month.  And our diet has been….well, let’s just say, less than stellar.  No, we didn’t eat a bunch of Micky-D, but we did eat our fair share of junk.  We’ve just driven from Los Angeles to Maine, spent over two weeks working like mad, then drove back to Los Angeles.  So….there have been some chips, cookies, a few sodas, and other such things I’d rather not ‘fess up to.  To add insult to injury, we also haven’t been drinking our kombucha and kefir, eating our fermented veg or organ meats.  Let’s just sum it up to say it hasn’t been clean eating and there have been some nutritional deficiencies.

Guess where all this is leading? Body Odor. (Keepin’ it real, folks.  Just keepin’ it real.)

Body Odor

In our culture we have come to expect body odor as a non-negotiable.  We assume that every young person who hits puberty must start using antiperspirant and their parents better buy stock in the company, because they’ll be using a lot.  They must, as a matter of course, start showering more often, use cologne and generally do everything possible suppress that nasty-mustiness.
