Perfect Pie Crust (AIP) The Paleo Mom

Note: I have only ever used Ottos Cassava Flour for this recipe and cant vouch that alternative brands will work as beautifully.  You can get Ottos direct from Ottos or from Amazon, OneStopPaleoShop, ShopAIP, Thrive Market and even Whole Foods stores!

This recipe makes enough dough for a double crust pie for an 8 pie plate.

Does When You Eat Affect Your Circadian Rhythm, Metabolism, Appetite, Physical Activity, And More? A "Big Breakfast" Study Aims To Explore. Weighty Matters

By Amin - Own work, CC BY-SA 4.0, Link
The fight over "breakfast" among diet gurus and social media warriors is so tiresome.

Firstly it's tiresome because "breakfast" means different things to different people, and yet conclusions about the utility of the meal as a whole are regularly made despite the fact that a bowl of Froot Loops is likely to have a very different impact on fullness than a couple of eggs and a piece of toast.

Secondly it's tiresome because what works for one person, may well not work for another, and no doubt when it comes to weight and dietary control, for some, breakfast will be crucial, while for others, it'll be inconsequential, and others still, potentially problematic.

In my clinical experience, though clearly coloured by my own confirmation biases, a protein rich breakfast with minimal liquid calories benefits more people than not, and whether that applies to you is easily tested on your own.

With all that out of the way, I wanted to talk a bit about an upcoming study coming out of the UK. The Big Breakfast Study: Chrononutrition influence on energy expenditure and bodyweight aims to explore the impact of breakfast by way of a randomized controlled trial comparing morning-loaded vs. evening-loaded weight loss diets on people with excess weight, and where all components of energy intake and energy expenditure will be monitored throughout.

That researchers' hypothesis is that breakfast will make a positive difference, and their thinking is that part of the reason why may be the effect of breakfa...

Every Member of Your Prepper Group MUST Have This On Them When the SHTF Ready Nutrition

I wrote several articles in the past about the importance of maintaining good first-aid treatment capabilities when youre out in the woods, as well as in the home. I also mentioned the need for training and suggested several ways to go about receiving it to better prepare you and your family. That being said, your situation is your own: you may not have the time to do such training, although it is a priority.

In a related article, we discussed the importance of prepping trauma packs in detail:

Having these items pre-packaged cuts down on response time, and gives the responders more of an advantage in properly caring for the wounded

Medical first response packs can be made ahead of time using most of the medical products that you have on hand. In fact, these first response packs are not limited to medical emergencies, they can also be used for dental emergencies as well. To prepare for a SHTF scenario, it would be beneficial to take into account the most likely medical situations you may come in contact with and plan accordingly.

In the meantime, you can stock up on some supplies that will help you and perhaps fill in the gaps when you dont have the time to train. As Ive covered the topic extensively, this is not the scope of this article. Youve all heard of quick clot, the substance used to stop bleeding and aid you in bandaging up wounds. We just put out an article on Yarrow, an herb that stops bleeding and aids in clotting. Lets go a step further with a couple of kits to recommend.

Food Scare: Are Pre-Washed Salad Greens Worth the Risk? Ready Nutrition

Whats with all the produce recalls lately? Recently, lettuce growers in California announced a major lettuce recall due to an E.coli outbreak. It seems food recalls are a news staple these days. In fact, the CDC estimates that 1 in 6 Americans gets sick from eating contaminated food every year. Raw foods of animal origin including chicken, beef, dairy products, raw shellfish, and eggs are the most likely to be contaminated. Sometimes, fruits and vegetables get contaminated as well. Food can get infected at any time, from the field to the kitchen.

With modern convenience came a surprising culprit: bagged leafy greens including lettuce and salad mixes.

Before we move on to discuss health concerns associated with bagged lettuce, lets first talk about common foodborne diseases.

Foodborne Illness 101

Researchers have identified more than 250 foodborne diseases, according to the CDC. The agency estimates that 48 million people get sick from a foodborne illness each year, 128,000 are hospitalized, and 3,000 die.

Most foodborne illnesses are infections caused by a variety of bacteria, viruses, and parasites. Harmful toxins and chemicals also can contaminate foods and cause foodborne disease. Sometimes natural toxins such as those in some mushrooms and molds are the cause.

Food poisoning symptoms may range from mild to severe and may differ depending on the germ you consumed.

The most common symptoms of food poisoning include:

  • Upset stomach
  • Stomach cramps
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Fever

Sometimes, food poisoning causes severe illness and can be life-threatening.

The CDC recommends seeing a healthcare provider if any of the following symptoms appear:

  • High fever (temperature over 101.5F, measured orally)
  • Blood in stools
  • Frequent vomiting that prevents keeping liquids down (which can lead to dehydration)
  • Signs of dehydration, including a marked decrease in urination, a very dry mouth, and throat, or feeling dizzy when standing up.
  • Diarrhea that lasts more than 3 days

Despite the common belief th...

Sicilian Pizza Closet Cooking

Sicilian Pizza
Sicilian style pizza with a thick focaccia crust that is nice and crispy on the bottom and soft in the middle all topped off with plenty of cheese, a tasty tomato sauce, and pepperoni!

I am a huge fan of pizza and although I often go with a regular style pizza with the classic pizza dough I also enjoy the Sicilian style pizza! Sicilian pizza is a pizza that originated in Sicily, Italy, where it has a thicker, focaccia, style crust with topping and in North American it is typically rectangular in shape. This pizza in baked in a rectangular pan and the pan is covered with plenty of olive oil so that the bottom of the crust soaks up that oil, and bakes until it is nice and lightly golden brown and crispy while the center stays nice and moist and chewy! Deli sliced mozzarella is often used rather than the more typical shredded cheese and its placed directly on the dough and this helps to prevent the pizza sauce from being in direct contact with the dough which might result in a soggy crust. I like to go with a simple and tasty pizza sauce and pepperoni along with a sprinkling of parmesan (or pecorino) for toppings but any of your favourite pizza toppings will work.
