Homemade ghee (clarified butter) #Foodie Friday

It’s been a long time since I did a food post. I suppose some of you don’t know that I do that sometimes. There is a collection here on Beyond Meds. I also have a food blog that I’ve not posted on in a long time that has a lot more variation because I was doing it while my diet kept changing and changing as I learned what my body needed at any given time. …

Food as medicine. Food sensitivities, too.

Food and diet has been critically important to my healing journey. Sensitivities are profound teachers that humble me again and again and teach me all manner of things about the nature of being human.

When people have very real food intolerances finding one’s way back to moderation and flexibility can be a challenge, but it’s not impossible. One thing I’ve needed to do is not care what others think. I have some very real intolerances and there really are foods I cannot eat for the time being. That is okay. It is real.

Salmon on a bed of parsley, garlic, burdock root and artichoke hearts #foodie friday

I don’t tolerate fish oil in supplement form, nor any other Omega 3 supplement so I was thrilled to learn I do okay with flash frozen (right upon catch) salmon…(histamine intolerance has its challenges) and Omega 3 fatty acids are very important to heal the iatrogenically injured brain — anyway…this was breakfast a few days ago:
