I love beautiful and simple food that is nourishing to the body and the soul. I wrote Fresh: Nourishing Salads for All Seasons and Ladled: Nourishing Soups for All Seasons as another outlet of sharing this love of mine. I also love sharing practical tips on how to make a real food diet work on a real life budget. Find me online elsewhere by clicking on the icons below!

    Red raspberries are in their prime right now. I’ve got loads sitting in our fridge and believe me, I’m not complaining! Raspberries are known for being an excellent source of vitamin C, manganese, folate, riboflavin, magnesium, niacin, potassium and copper. All this also qualifies them as a very good source vitamin B, as well as soluble dietary fiber. Here’s a refreshing, very simple recipe I’ve been indulging in these last couple of days.

    Another reason real food is worth the time and money: you mood! Today I’m exploring how food impacts our moods and relationships, and sharing a little of of my personal experience.

    This week’s post is a recipe on how to make a fermented ginger beer (non alcoholic). My two teens made this from beginning to end it took about 10 days for about 1 gallon. We’ve got another batch started.

    I am sharing a delicious homemade cream cheese frosting — definitely frugal (not to mention probiotic) if you start with homemade cream cheese! I use less sugar, which gives a pleasant tang and saves money.

    Another “beat the heat” meal from the Texas prairie where it is near 100 degrees again today. But it is cool inside where we are eating well, but NOT cooking during the day :-).

    Great turnout today, and some good-looking stuff, too! 🙂 I linked up a light and refreshing recipe that can be made as either a slushie beverage or a frozen dessert, Lemon-Lime Coconut Basil Ice. I love it, so I hope you all will, too. 😉

    Thanks for hosting, Kimi!
