How to Make Thick Homemade Raw Goats’ Milk Yogurt

I have a tendency to stick with kefir because 1) it’s totally raw 2) it has more benefits than yogurt and 3) it’s so much easier! But there really is nothing like a healthy yogurt with berries and granola! Unfortunately, flavored yogurt from the store often contains more sugar than Lucky Charms! Making it homemade is cheap, healthier, and far more rewarding! But making yogurt from raw milk and getting it thick can be tricky, but it can be especially […]

My Favorite Way to Soothe and Moisturize Skin (and it’s not lotion)

    Soothing skin–one of the most difficult things to do naturally!! Even “natural” lotions contain petroleum byproducts and synthetic fragrances. Even those from companies people think are natural like Shaklee, Melaleuca, Nature’s Gate, etc. contain so many of these toxic ingredients listed below. Synthetic Fragrances “Fragrance” or “parfum” on an ingredient list actually represents a trade secret fragrance recipe that could be made up of not just one or two chemicals, but hundreds of synthetic chemicals. These chemicals are selected […]

So What DO You Eat? A look into my family’s menu

So What DO You Eat? A Look Into HFFG's Personal Food Log!

Part of my job is going over food logs from clients, but many people ask what the HFFG family eats! So here’s a candid look at a week of meals looks like for our family.  Before you proceed, keep in mind a few things We don’t eat perfect. We are on a budget. A tight one, in fact. But we do make a lot of sacrifices and have a lot of resources to get our groceries for MUCH less than […]

Easy Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp–Gluten-Free, No Refined Sugar

They say creativity is the mother of invention. In my case, an almost-empty pantry and fridge is the mother of invention. I love the things I create with the “what we have” ingredients. To save money on groceries and to avoid wasting food, I try to go as long as possible without grocery shopping. And particularly once a month, I make it a point to spend at least 3 days using what’s left in the freezers, pantry, and fridges. (Yes, […]

Cheesy Broccoli Bites

Who doesn’t love broccoli?! Okay, a lot of people don’t, including many kids. That’s unfortunate, because broccoli is one of the most nutritious vegetables available! Among other benefits, broccoli contains compounds that are great at helping support the liver in the body’s detoxification process.   Like most other vegetables, cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli and cauliflower, are good sources of a variety of nutrients and phytochemicals that may work synergistically to help prevent cancer. From the Linus Pauling Institute:   […]

Delicious & Nourishing Homemade Chocolates! (Without refined sugar!)

Okay, so here’s the deal. I’m not a food blogger. For two reasons. #1: I don’t even own a decent camera. Heck–I don’t even have a smartphone. And a good camera is just not in the budget. And #2: I don’t measure. I cook very inventively and measure by guestimates. And with 6 kids, I can’t really take the time to measure anyway! Nonetheless, I come up with some recipes that I really know some of you would enjoy, like […]

Easy Deliciously Healthy Homemade Eggnog

Before we used to eat healthy, my hubby had a tradition of buying a quart of eggnog from the grocery store at least once a week in the month of December.  When we started eating “healthier,” he would buy the organic eggnog. But as we progressed towards fresh, whole foods, we needed to switch from store-bought eggnog to something that was actually healthy and nourishing. What’s wrong with organic eggnog, you ask?! Well for one thing, it’s pasteurized milk/cream.  If […]

How To Have Yourself A Healthy Holiday Season

Thanksgiving and Christmas is a wonderful time of year for fellowship, family, and of course food. Unfortunately, it can be extremely detrimental to our health. For instance, one study found that holiday food can have a year-round detrimental effect on the health of diabetic and pre-diabetic individuals. “The present study demonstrates an influence of winter holidays on the glycemic control of patients who have type 2 diabetes, and this poor glycemic control might not be reversed during the summer and […]

LaZuli Organics Body Care Products Review and Giveaway!!

I cannot tell you all how excited I am about this post! A few years ago, I discovered why the things we put on our skin are just as important as what we put into our guts, and nothing’s been the same since. I learned the problems with deodorant, conventional makeup, and especially those conventional lotions filled with carcinogenic chemicals. But finding safe and effective alternatives is not an easy task! I’ve found a few here and there over the […]

Essential Books & Movies for Pregnancy and Childbirth

If you’re like me, sometimes you’d rather curl up with a book (or movie) and a blanket during pregnancy than sit on the computer to gain some knowledge! Fortunately, this is probably a much better way to gain knowledge and empower ourselves with information. So I’d like to share some of my favorite resources for pregnancy, childbirth, and afterwards. There are many out there, of course, so this can just be a starting point. Whatever you start with, I encourage […]
