for the love of lasagna

By | February 26th, 2016|Health, Pastured Meat, Recipes|

This recipe has a significant amount of sentimental value to me. It's made up of 1 part inspirational blogger/farmer/lifestyle role model and 1 part best friend/kick ass/new mama role model. The final product is as odd a matchup as the inspiration behind it, but I can tell you this much: each of these ladies plays [...]

healing benefits of liver

By | January 25th, 2016|Health, Nutrition|

This past year was by far the most life changing of any of my 20 something before it, which is why it is so fitting that in the final months of 2015, a health struggle I've been battling for the past 6 years finally came to a close. And believe it or not, I have [...]

coco-butter tea… modern day take on a Tibetan tradition

By | January 19th, 2016|Health, Nutrition, Recipes, To Drink|

While I absolutely LOVE my locally roasted organic coffee, I also think that there is something to be said for keeping things varied, and for not loading the body with tons of caffeine every morning. Variety is the spice of life, you know. Plus, studies have shown that consuming high amounts of caffeine can negatively impact cortisol.  Caffeine acts [...]

classic chicken pot pie

By | January 7th, 2016|Health, Pastured Meat, Recipes|

It's that time of year. Nights are long. Temperatures are low. And comfort food is on the mind. I've got memories of homemade chicken pot pie that make my mouth water. And this time of year, nothing sounds better. So, I've gone to work to create a delicious grain-free classic chicken pot pie that will fulfill [...]

winter cider sangria

By | December 27th, 2015|Health, To Drink|

Cheers to a great 2015. Loads of change came my way (and by no happenstance also to Radical Roots). The blog got a whole new facelift. I moved to a whole new state. I explored the forests and beaches of the Pacific Northwest, picked wild blackberries, grew our first bit of food, foraged for mushrooms, and climbed [...]

why you’ll find me in the trees

By | December 17th, 2015|Health, Movement and Play, Movement Tips, The Mind|

That's right; you'll find me in the trees. Curious? Stick with me. If you follow me on Instagram, this is probably no surprise to you, as some of my fondest photos are either from high atop or down below some of my favorite trees. I spend as much time as I can, rain or shine, outside. [...]

grain free sugar cookies

By | December 10th, 2015|A Little Sweet Tooth, Health, Recipes|

The holidays are in full swing at the Radical Roots homestead, and that means it's sugar cookie time. My husband is a cookie fiend (if you didn't know that already), and since the day after Thanksgiving, he's been asking for sugar cookies to have with homemade eggnog (next recipe coming your way). We had a [...]

pumpkin pie bites

By | November 23rd, 2015|A Little Sweet Tooth, Health, Nutrition, Recipes|

Pumpkin pie easily makes my top ten favorite desserts list. It's so good, in fact, that I've decided to make a whole new dessert inspired by this favorite. This past month we had a group of friends over to hangout. We provided a variety of nibbles but no sit down meal. I wanted to make [...]

Fall is here, Thanksgiving is around the corner, and I am one happy lady. I love this time of year. For the falling leaves, the crisp air, my favorite seasonal produce, and all things pumpkin. Which brings me to the point of this post... Only a few days into November, and I've already roasted a [...]
