Food and Nutrition

  • Traditional Foods
    My health has dramatically improved after changing my diet for a more traditional way of eating, as advised by Sally Fallon.
  • Food Flower Poster
    Forget the food pyramid! It was developed by the agricultural industry, not by nutritionists. Instead, print this Food Flower poster, which shows a visual guide to choosing nutritious and satisfying traditional foods.
  • Sourdough bread Recipes
    I make delicious sourdough bread in my bread machine - recipes and tips here.
  • Raw Food
    Should we be eating a diet of 100% raw food? Here's what I found by way of "scientific proof".
  • Raw garlic to cure colds & flu
    If you feel a cold or flu coming on, eat a whole clove of raw garlic, three times a day - it works miracles.

What a magnificent sentiment about the simple and profound pleasure that comes from building/making your own! I have really enjoyed your series on building your tiny house. Tiny houses are something to be aimed for in our exponential race to own our own little piece of paradise with spiralling land costs weighing first home owners down and preventing them from dreaming. Posts like yours give hope back...there is always a way waiting for us to find it...thank you for this lovely post and for giving my Boxing Day thoughts a little joy :)

Hi Asphyxia,
I love how your house seems to be a living thing like you, I imagine it breathing in as you need to walk from one place to another, then breathing out again to cushion you all and keep you comfy. I love the idea of you under the table in labour, you being the little house for Jesse, the table being another little house for the two of you , and then all of you, Paula, midwife etc, situated under the roof of your gorgeous little mud brick house. I hope Jesse does eventually build his own little house, the experience would be so special for him and for you and Paula.
