Re-Starting a Familiar-ish Routine

Jack started attending the local public high school last Wednesday, after two years of homeschooling. Up until I pulled him out of school, I’d always had at least one child in school or day care since Hannah started preschool. So that’s about 16 years of being used to a “school schedule” followed by two years […]

Jicama tortillas

I’m not sure where I first heard of jicama tortillas – from a paleo friend or an internet advertisement, perhaps.  I was intrigued.  How would you fold them?  It seems like they would crack like rice tortillas which have been a complete disappointment.  How would you make them?  Jicama is hard enough to peel.  How […]

Reboot

It feels like I’m constantly re-inventing myself and having to re-start what I already know works for me. For YEARS, I was able to be very strict about my diet, not really being tempted by the non-compliant stuff in the house for the kids. But somehow, over the past year or two, things have shifted […]

¿Que son ‘alergias’?

Una reacción alérgica es la respuesta de nuestro sistema inmunológico hacia algún alergéno que para muchos es totalmente normal e inofensivo. En cambio para aquel que es sensible, dicha manifestación se amplifica, convirtiéndola en una reacción fisiológica no apropiada que se manifiesta en patología desde las formas más comunes como por ejemplo dolor de cabeza, […]

PCOS and unexplained weight gain

I said I was going to do one more blot about allergies, and I will.  But we have had a guest in our home, and I thought her story might be useful to some who are visiting the BTD site because of their weight. I’m going to be careful not to identify our guest – […]

Cheese and Dental Work

I’m having some dental work done tomorrow, so I did my food shopping today and I plan to do some food preparation tomorrow morning. This way, I’ll have soft, easy to eat, nutritious food ready for afterwards. I mentioned this to a friend today, who offered me some of her Atkins shakes. When I declined, […]

Allergy Answers 2

One thing that I found curious when I first looked at the food lists for Type O (my son and me) and Type A (my husband and daughter) was that Type As can have unlimited servings of vegetables.   Type Os can have 3-5 cups a day.  That was another fact that came back to my […]

Prayers for Healing

In cleaning up the house, we located a small prayer book called “Aneni: Special Prayers for Special Occasions.” It’s tiny; only 3.5 inches by 5 inches and about 250 pages, with fairly large, easy to read text. It’s very small for a Jewish prayer book, and includes prayers not found in the regular one. Included […]
