Grain Bowls!

I used to love cooking. As a teen, part of my responsibilities while working at a retirement home, was to cook food for all the residents. I loved making the dishes beautiful, tasty and satisfying! I loved seeing the residents revel in the delicious meals and sit back satisfied after their meal experience.

That love for cooking came with me when I got married and as I had children. However, after suffering with Lyme for so long and trying every type of diet under the sun to try and heal my body and help me feel whole again, coupled with having 4 picky children, being on a tight budget, trying to cook healthy for my family and then making a second meal for myself (outside of what I made for my family) that was free of dairy, gluten, corn, soy or sugar - and doing this for YEARS ...

I may have developed a bit of PTSD from all of that and my love for cooking completely left me. That desire and passion for cooking hadn't returned even years after overcoming my health issues and having mealtime be less stressful. As I make meals I still try to keep in mind what my kids will and won't eat and if it's packed in nutrients but the love for cooking hasn't been a part of the meal prep for years!

Until now...

After coming across a random book search, I came across something called "grain bowls". So I printed off some recipes (which I'll share down below - they're wonderful!), and purchased a few books, two of which are my favorite so far - my passion and love for cooking, nutritionally rich food, textures, colors, and, most importantly, flavors! - has returned!

I LOVE the Word of Wisdom or, what I call, the "Bible Diet". (I have a video I'll share with everyone about that soon.) And these grain bowls work very well for those wanting to follow those guidelines.

The "foundation" of these meals are grains (and sometimes beans) - whatever grains you'd like! I like to use brown rice, quinoa or millet. I like to use 2-3 different grains, separated as the foundation and then pile other great food on top!

There are NO rules for how this needs to be done. The options are endless! AND it works SO well for pulling together leftovers! Have some red peppers? Bake them in the oven, sprinkle on a bit of salt and add it to the bowl! Have some brussel sprouts that need to be used? Coat them in maple syrup and bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes and add that to the dish!

I always like to add a bit of fermented food as part of the grain bowl. Did you know that Costco now sells RAW sauerkraut? (We need to get back into making our own but it's so nice to be able to buy some if you haven't made some recently).

I hope you've liked this post! And I hope you consider giving grain bowls a try!


Here are the recipes I have LOVED pulling ideas from:

Spine Alignment Class with Dr. Adamson

Spine Alignment Class Info

Dr. Hurley is coming to Lehi, Utah January 19th & 20th to teach his spine alignment class. There's only 13 days left to register before the class and before we're no longer offering the recording through us. 

Dr. Adamson teaches a technique called the Hurley Technique - it's a gentle, pain-free, and non-invasive approach to adjusting the spine. Dr. Hurley has told me that if he could only take one healing technique with him when he dies, out of all the healing techniques he knows, it'd be the Hurley Technique. 
Dr. Adamson was the EMS director for Drone county for over 20 years. During this time he blew his back out and it left him in debilitating pain for 4 years. He had someone do the Hurley Technique on his back and it gave him relief for 4-5 days. He was impressed with the results and decided to be trained to do the Hurley Technique through a massage school in Utah and is now completely back pain free. Dr. Adamson has since then become a licensed acupuncturist, a myotherapist, and a naturopathic health expert. He is the owner of Intermountain College of Natural and Holistic Health & Wellness Center in Twin Falls Idaho.

The Hurley Technique releases muscle tension, eases joint pain, improves posture and circulation, and helps the body realign itself through proper placement of the skeletal system. It is achieved by adjusting the position of the sacrum to the field of gravity.

This skill is something I'm so excited to learn and use within my own home and I hope you love having this new skill that you can use to bless and benefit you and your family members as well! Every health-conscious family should know the skill and have the ability to adjust their family members spines as they grow or have an accident or run into joint problems. 
 To register to attend the class IN-PERSON call Dr. Adamson's office at: 208-735-1166. 
In-Person Class is Jan 19th & 20th from 9am to 5pm each day in Lehi, Utah. Cost is $275 for the in-person training which includes the two day in-person training, a digital file for the book to go with the class and a discount for the DVD set containing the new recording of the class.
To register for the RECORDING of the class taking place on the 19th & 20th,  purchase the recording at this link.
The recording of the class will include the digital file for Dr. Adamson's book that goes along with the class and the set of DVD's that covers the 11+ hours of instruction given during this two-day class to thoroughly learn this technique. Cost is only $175 for the recording. 
(Note: This link will only be available until Jan 19th. The recording will need to be purchased directly from Dr. Adamson after that time. The recording will be sent to you / available for pick up 3-4 weeks AFTER the class has occurred to give us time to edit, export, upload and burn and print the DVD's. We'll be in touch updating you on the progress of the DVD's after the class.)

Master Tonic Recipe (aka "Fire Cider")

Has everyone made their Master Tonic (aka "Fire Cider") yet for this fall and winter season? I made 4 quarts in only 15 minutes! This remedy is amazing at kicking out flu's, colds, sinus infections, and more. You can take it to help PREVENT illnesses from hitting or take it for an ACTIVE illness.
There is NO solid recipe to this tonic. You can add as much or as little of each of the ingredients as you want. Just make sure that approximately 3/4 of the remedy is the medicinally powerful produce and the rest is the raw apple cider vinegar - and that's it!

Here are the basic ingredients:
🔹1/2 onion
🔹1 head of garlic (I like to use half)
🔹1/4 bunch of parsley
🔹1/4 cup fresh turmeric (if you can find some or use some turmeric powder)
🔹1 cup (or more) of fresh ginger
🔹1 cup (or more) of fresh horseradish
generous pinch of cayenne powder
🔹1/2 cup raw honey
Chop the produce up some. (I didn't peel my garlic.) Place in blender. Add ACV. Blend until everything is in small chunks. Place in 2 quart jar - fill up rest of way with ACV. Place in fridge - will last for 6 months to one year.

Preventative: Use 1 Tbsp. every day (straight or mixed into water).
During Illness: Use 1 Tbsp every 1-2 hours (straight or mixed into water).
As always, I hope this information will be a blessing to you and your family!

Signs of Times + Food Storage Information Sheet

"Record setting wildfire strikes CA"
"Record breaking hurricane strikes FL"
"Record breaking rains in TX"
"Record breaking earthquakes in ID"
"Record breaking fires in AK"
"Record breaking heat waves in 2017"
Rare meteor showers, solar eclipses,
and rare complex astronomical alignment.


I think it's safe to say that the Lord has our attention. As I have spent the last few years teaching others how to have a nutrient-rich food storage and a well-stocked remedy supply - I have always done my best to not use scare tactics or to focus on the negative and I will continue to teach others in the same way.

I don't share the above image and list to instill fear - I share it so we will open our eyes and be aware of these circumstances (and others) that are going on in the world today. We are told in the scriptures to watch for signs of the Lord's coming and although we can't prove that these are definitely signs of His coming - I sure think they could be! Especially when we include other political upheavals, generational health issues, inconceivable crimes, confusion, and conspiring organizations in today's world

Having food, basic supplies and remedies stored away is something we should all work on in a steady and balanced way. For now, I'd like to share with you an information sheet I put together to help simplify food items we should work on storing in our food storage. I have purposefully kept this list (and other details to go with it) nice and simple. Sometimes it seems that lists like these get FAR too complex. It doesn't need to be that way at all.
Grains and other food storage foods can be purchased from Winco, Coscto, Azure Standard, Dave's Farms, Alpine Food Storage (in Utah) and other wonderful places that sell food storage food.

I hope this information is a blessing to you and your family,

Night-Time Herbal Infusion for Sleep, Anxiety, and to De-Stress

Night-Time Herbal Infusion

We love being able to make a night time herbal infusion that helps the body to de-stress, relax and go to sleep. This particular mix is a mixture I put together for my own kids. We go through waves of consistently having a cup of this tea before bed. It's fun to hear the kids ask for this tea when I fall out of doing this nightly routine. Not only do they love the tea but they love the consistency of such a routine and love being given something special before they go to bed. It's especially cozy to drink a tea like this before bed during the colder months. This mild-tasting herbal tea tastes wonderful and is soothing to all systems in the body.

To make this calming tea, use equal parts of each of the following herbs:

Hops Flowers
Lemon Balm

All of these herbs help to calm the nerves and are perfect as a mild, relaxing sleep aid. But because they're all calming herbs, they can be used for more than just helping you fall asleep. All of these herbs also help alleviate stomach or intestinal cramps, tension, irritability, reduce inflammation and they're even known to help alleviate ADHD or seizure symptoms.

How to Make the Tea:

Mix together the herbs in a bowl. Use one teaspoon of the mix for every cup of boiled water. Steep for 10-20 minutes. Strain. Stir in a dab of raw honey. Drink 1-2 cups in the evening.

You can purchase equal amounts of each of the dried herbs then mix them together and store in an airtight container for up to a year. Then use as needed to add a calming cup of tea to your nightly routine.

Purchasing Herbs / Seeds:

These herbs can be purchased in their dry form from most local health stores or from online herbal stores such as StarWest Botanicals, Mountain Rose Herbs, or San Francisco Herbs.

If you'd like to grow these herbs yourself, the seeds can be purchased from

As always, I hope this information will be a blessing to you and your family,

Best Daily Tonic Herbs (That can be easily grown in your garden!)

There are three specific herbs I have come to love and value over the years as I've studied medicinal herbs and health and disease. These three herbs are known to be the "elixir of life" and are able to protect us from many types of viruses and bacteria and one of them is even known to balance our energy systems!

These three herbs are:

Lemon Balm

Lemon balm is a type of mint. It's latin name is Melissa officinalis. You know the popular (and super expensive) Melissa Essential oil that's known to be one of the most powerful anti-viral essential oils in existence? THIS is the plant it comes from! Research conducted over the past decade has demonstrated impressive results using lemon balm as an antiviral herb - especially for the Herpes Simplex Virus. 

But not only does lemon balm have some impressive antiviral properties - it's a calming herb that helps relieve stress and anxiety. Chronic stress is the NUMBER ONE cause of deteriorating health. If we're taking an herb that's acting as a mild sedative - calming our nerves, re-setting our autonomic nervous system and relieving nervous tension, our health will take a BIG step in the right direction. 

This herb is used to treat the flu, colds, and coughs. It's perfect as a daily tonic not only because of the benefits I just listed but also because it helps improve memory, it improves moods, and it supports the immune system. 


Stevia isn't just one of the healthiest substitutes for sugar known to man - did you know that Stevia contains phytonutrients which contain antimicrobial properties that work against many pathogens? One recent popular study has shown that the phytonutrients in the stevia plant, when taken in tincture form, has the ability to reduce the biofilm of the Borrelia Burgdorferi bacteria 40% more effectively than three antibiotics it was tested against. That's a profound percentage - especially when considering how difficult it is to get through that blasted biofilm!

Stevia has been proven to lower blood pressure, stimulate the immune system, and it has been found to inhibit Rotaviruses. (1) Stevia is known to help lower blood sugar levels, and has a long list of health benefits including improving energy levels, inhibiting candida, preventing bacterial infections, and improving skin conditions such as acne, dermatitis, and eczema. And let's not forget that it tastes amazing and is a welcome addition to any herbal tea!

Holy Basil

Holy basil is known in India as an herb that contains the best medicinal and spiritual properties. Holy basil, also called Tulsi, is regarded as the holiest of all plants by Hindus and is known as "The Incomparable One", "The Queen of Herbs" and is considered an "elixir of life" and a potent adaptogen that promotes longevity. (An adaptogen is a natural substance considered to help the body adapt to stress and to exert a normalizing effect upon bodily processes.)

Dr. Aviva Romm explains that holy basil calms the mind and spirit and promotes longevity. Holy basil is known to improve energy and relieve fatigue. It elevates mood, provides relief from anxiety and mild depression. It improves mental clarity, and increases motivation to make healthy lifestyle and mindset changes. This herb is known to balance all chakra systems in the body! 

Holy basil's anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant actions may protect the liver from stress and inflammation-related damage. It lowers blood glucose, triglycerides, and cholesterol, and improves immunity to common colds and bronchitis. 

How to Use These Three Herbs

All three of these herbs are incredibly easy to grow in the garden or in an outdoor pot. You can either pluck a leaf from each of these plants and eat them together once or twice a day. Or make a tea using the leaves. 

Tea Using Fresh Leaves = 2 tsp.'s chopped leaves per cup of boiled water
Tea Using Dried Leaves = 1 tsp of chopped leaves per cup of boiled water

Simple tea making instructions are:

Bring water to boil. 
Add in leaves to pot / cup. 
Cover (to keep those powerfully medicinal essential oils from escaping).
Allow to steep for 10-20 minutes. 

Drink 2-3 times a day.  

One Extra Herb

There is one extra herb I LOVE to add to this already beautiful, tasty, and medicinally powerful combination of herbs. That herb is ... licorice root! 

There have been numerous studies proving that licorice root is antiviral and anti-inflammatory and that it contains a wide variety of immunomodulating effects - which means that is has the ability to adjust the immune response to a desired level. If you're immune system is too active / sensitive - licorice root will help calm it down and level it out OR if you're immune system is sluggish, licorice root helps stimulate it and bring it back into balance.

Licorice root has been shown to inhibit Epstein Barr (which, I believe is an underlying re-occurring health issue most people with chronic illnesses seem to struggle with). Licorice root has been proven to contain anti-infectious potential seeing as how it has the ability to prevent H. Pylori from adhering to the digestive lining. 

Note: Licorice root should not be taken if you have high blood pressure. 


So between these four amazing herbs, they have the ability to kill off viruses and protect us from them (especially H. Pylori and Epstein Barr - which are a rather nasty threat), they balance our chakras, protect us from unwanted bacteria, balance our immune system, help us adapt to stress, they normalize our body processes, reduce inflammation, and, of course, provide us with some great nutrients. 

It's a beautiful combination that, in my opinion, creates one of THE BEST daily tonic teas we could take! 

Herbal Ratios

When making a tea, I don't use equal parts of each of these herbs (you can if you'd like) but here's what I do:

2 Parts Holy Basil
2 Parts Lemon Balm
1 Part Stevia
1/2 Part Licorice Root

You can adjust your recipe as you'd like. :)


Purchase fresh herbs from your local nurseries (call before you go). Seeds for these plants can be purchased from
