My Coconut E-Book is Here!!

So I haven’t blogged in a really long time. I’ve been taking care of Keira full-time since she was born in August, which hasn’t left a lot of time for blogging. Instead of writing posts I decided to put all of my available time into working on my coconut e-book–and I’m so excited to tell you that it is finally done!!

Crazy for Coconut: 45+ Simple Recipes to Add More Coconut Oil to Your Diet

Have you been wanting to add more coconut oil to your diet, but can’t stomach the thought of just eating it straight by the spoonful?

Crazy for CoconutNeither can I, which is why I spent the last year writing Crazy for Coconut, my new PDF e-book featuring coconut-rich recipes to help you easily add more coconut oil to your diet–without sacrificing your tastebuds!

You get 46 fantastic recipes for:

  • Coconut oil chocolates
  • Fruity coconut oil bites
  • Coconut ice creams
  • Coconut butter breads and bars
  • Coconut cookies
  • Coconut puddings

All recipes are gluten-free, grain-free, and dairy-free.

All recipes are simple and easy to make. While I’d love to tell you that I’m some sort of fancy cook, that’s just not true. If a recipe isn’t simple to pull together, I’m not making it (this is even doubly true now that I have an infant!). So you can be assured that the recipes in this e-book will be easy to fit into your busy life.

My Experience with Acne and the GAPS Diet

Back when I was first contemplating starting the GAPS diet, I did a lot of Googling about GAPS and acne. Acne was one of my main health complaints and I was reticent to undertake such a rigorous diet if it didn’t have any chance of healing my acne. I never did end up finding many testimonials, but I was out of ideas so decided to give GAPS a go anyway. In the interest of providing more information for fellow acne sufferers, today I want to share a bit more about my experience with acne and the GAPS diet.

Save Time with Bulk Cooking: The Grain Free Freezer Cooking Guide from Health, Home and Happiness

Cooking real food for the last three years has forced me to develop some strategies for saving time and energy in my kitchen. One of my best strategies is cooking in bulk and cooking for my freezer. When I take extra time to prepare a lot of food at once, I get to enjoy several days of easy meals and snacks, perfect for those times when I don’t have time to cook or even just don’t feel like being in the kitchen.

Getting started in bulk cooking was really challenging for me, though, which is why I’m so happy to share a new e-book on this topic, the Grain Free Freezer Cooking Guide from Cara Faus at Health, Home and Happiness.…

18 Months on GAPS

Saturday marked the end of my eighteenth month on the GAPS diet. I can’t believe I’ve been on GAPS for a year and a half. In some ways it feels a lot longer than that, but in other ways I still sometimes feel like a beginner.

I’ve been somewhat reluctant to write this post because I feel like my healing on GAPS has sort of stalled in the past couple of months. I realized that it’s just as important to share the challenging parts of the protocol as the happy healing parts, though, so here goes.


I wrote in my 15 months on GAPS post that GAPS dramatically improved my acne to the point that I was only dealing with a handful of breakouts a time.…
