Once upon a time, I discovered that everything I had been told about what it meant to eat healthy was a lie.

Okay, not everything, because fruit and vegetables were good for me--I knew that. But I didn't know that butter was, too. Or red meat. Or raw milk. Or... or... or...

That was then

Not long after I started on the journey of learning about how traditionally-healthy societies managed to be so without all the benefits of modern science telling them what they should or shouldn't eat (newsflash: it wasn't because they had enough Flintstone vitamins in their diet), I started blogging. And sharing my new discoveries with the world. And also posting recipes.

And this is, well, you know...

I have incorporated many changes into how our family eats over the years, and now do about 95% of my cooking "from scratch." That means I start with fresh ingredients, often ones that I grew myself (and harvested myself, and sometimes butchered myself.) That's a lot of cooking when you have a family of six. And that is a lot of opportunity for new recipes--which I love to share with you!

For future reference

You can browse through my recipe section for easy access to all the recipes on my blog. I have also just launched my healthy eating newsletter, "Talena's Kitchen", in which I share simple, do-able tips for how to incorporate traditional whole-food eating into your life. (Sign up and see previous issues below.)

Be sure to look for the "Scratch Fast" and "Kid-Friendly" recipes if you are a busy cook, like me! The "Recommended Reading" page is an index of articles I wrote about ways to be healthier in the past.

Be well!
