Take Time Thursday #1

Hello all! I am so excited…starting this week I am embarking on a new weekly adventure.

I am going to take some of my favorite posts from the past week and share them with you each Thursday. I think it’s important to take time to give thanks and show appreciation for fellow bloggers who have made an impact on me, and take time to share awesome knowledge with all of you! Below are some of my favorites from this past week.

  • Creating my own cultured foods has been on my radar for quite some time now. With her post “Getting Started With Cultured Foods,” Dina-Marie at Cultured Palate has given me knowledge to get started with a few simple foods! 
  • Weed ‘Em & Reap has created and shared with us her new recipe for homemade *real* food brownies. I haven’t made them yet, but they are on my to-do list this week. Judging by the picture and the ingredient list, I’m certain that these will be a hit!
  • Over at Homemade Dutch Apple Pie Mary shows us four (YES 4) different gluten-free cracker recipes. This was like hitting the jackpot for me, since we love to have healthy snacks like this readily available. I made her recipe for the gluten-free butter crackers…Perfect! I can’t wait to make the other three cracker recipes.
  • Katie over at Girl Meets Nourishment shares a wonderful post about why butter is her BFF (and why it should be your BFF, too). It is a much more detailed post (specific to butter) than my two posts about fats (part 1 and part 2). This post is very informational, and even includes great video!


  • Just say NO to showers! (Huh!??) Yes, it’s true…for a few excellent reasons you should say NO to showers. You definitely want to check out this post from Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Healthiness.

  • Do you have any old seed packets in your garage, basement, fridge, or possibly your bedroom? Embarrassing, but yes…I’ve been known to find old seeds in really random places (bad Scratch Mommy). Well, Learning and Yearning shares a great post explaining how to determine seed viability.
  • Over at the Health Extremist I learned about plants I should keep in my home to help remove toxins. Rockin’!

I hope that you’ll visit some of these awesome bloggers’ sites and take a peek. They are all doing some really great things to support *real* health. Until next time…
