Halloween Gfree Fun


to your favorite board for easy reference

Time to get your kids in the kitchen and get prepared for Halloween. We have started decorating our home and Franki has planned a party.  Funny thing is she invited the neighbors to a Halloween party before asking if she could have one, then she in formed her Dad she was having a party.  This girl is like her Mom and loves to host and create a mess, but not so much on the clean up part.  Good thing Lillie likes to pick up and have order.  They will make a great party throwing team.  We had our bats up on the walls, our halloween garland hung and potion jars out in our witches hutch.  Check out some of my favorite activities below.

Here are four of our favorites for Halloween

The Healing Powers of Chicken Stock


to your favorite board for easy reference

Did you ever wonder why your grandma always fed you chicken soup when you were sick?  She was one smart cookie.  Bones broths have amazing healing power for the body.

Five things you may not know about chicken broth


1. Bone broth will heal a leaky gut.  You will find that bone broths or stocks are a big part of the GAPS protocol to heal a gut tissue  because it provide nutrient dense food that is easy for the body to absorb.

2. Bone broth is fed to recovering anorexic patients who will not consume solid foods.

3. Bone broth can be made at home for minimal expense with left overs or scraps. See the recipe below

4. Bone broth also inhibits infections caused by the cold and flu viruses and fights inflammation.

5.  Bone broth contains gelatin that is hydrophilic colloid and supports proper digestion.

Bone broth made from a left over chicken carcass is super easy to make. Let's get started!

Ingredients



2 - 3 lbs chicken bones (preferably from organic free-range chicken)
1/2 cup celery, chopped
2 tbs apple cider vinegar
4 quarts water


Directions
Boil all ingredients for 6 hours on low heat or cook in crockpot 24 hours on low.

Strain your both and place in sterilized mason jars.

Can the broth for future use in soups, gravies or just as a warm soothing drink. To can the broth seal you jars with fresh lids and pressure cook for 25 minutes. Remove from canner pot and set on kitchen towel overnight to ensure the lids seal properly.  If a lid pops when you push on it, discard.

Stress No More! Gfree Meal Planning



I have a big treat for you today.  Do you ever wonder what to cook for supper? or you look in the fridge and realize your missing an ingredient for dinner?  What about when you need to stop at the store on your way home from work so you can make a gfree meal for your family?

As a busy mom with 3 little girls and a full time job, I know who you feel.  I understand the stress and also hate the idea of one more stop in my already busy day.  This is why we plan our weekly meals and align our shopping list.

I use EverNote to make my list, that way when I get to the store if I forget to print it out it is still on my phone.  When making your grocery list check your pantry, cabinets and fridge to see what you already have. This will save you money. Then only list the items need for your recipes.  I like to make a large supper and have the girls eat the leftovers for lunch the next day.  I also pick up some lunch meat for filling in lunches, when supper was so good everyone ate seconds and thirds. (It will happen) Watch our VIP video below for the full details and download the resources.

Here is a menu plan for the next 2 weeks:
Friday 9/5 - pizza
Sat 9/6 - buffalo chicken wraps/ BLTs
Sun 9/7 - orange chicken and rice
Mon 9/8 - hamburger and fries
Tues 9/9 - hotdogs and mac n cheese
Wed 9/10 - chicken nuggets and veggies/fries
Thur 9/11 - chicken tacos
Fri 9/12 - Pizza
Sat 9/13 - spaghetti and meatballs
Sun 9/14 - chicken legs and greens
Mon 9/15 - hotdogs and pasta salad
