Helping Hands, Open Hearts

This afternoon I had the pleasure of cooking and cleaning with my 4 year old daughter. We got to talk about things that make her happy, she got to taste everything we added to our soup and smoothie, she even got to wash the blender herself.

Eat Your Garlic!

Let food be thy medicine and thy medicine by the food. - Hippocrates
These are words to live by. In fact when our kitchen is finally repainted, I hope to have someone artfully write those words across the wall by the table.  Garlic is a powerful medicine and delicious food. It has healed me of mastitis and both my husband and I of incredibly sore throats and colds.

Fantastic Fajitas

Chicken fajitas are a Flick favorite. They're pretty easy and make you feel nourished and healthy when you eat them. Anything is easy once you get in the habit of doing it. Fajitas or tacos is something that Michael and I could cook blindfolded with one arm tied behind our backs. And since peppers and onions are Michael's favorite vegetables, this dish a staple in our home.

Modern Living

As someone who secretly admires the Amish and wants to be off grid I'm disappointed that I suck so much at not having a dishwasher. I mean, dishes don't pile up forever, and I'm still cooking lots of things... But honestly, I hate not having magic dish box.

Maybe its just hard to keep up because I have 4 babies. I'm holding one now while the 3 big ones drink super smoothies.

2 Apples
Raw Milk Kefir
Powdered Herb Blend
Few tablespoons coconut oil
Chia Seeds

all organic ;) except frozen mango

Its a bit tart, but my kids barely know what sugar is.
