Do you miss cereal....?

Do you miss cereal in the mornings.....? I did too! For those who avoid wheat and a few other inflammatory grains, you will jump up and down with excitement over this new "seed cereal" it's ahhhhmazing! 

Meet Qia, a trio of powerful superfood seeds (chia, buckwheat and hemp )crafted into a lightly sweetened cereal by Natures Path. I tried the cranberry vanilla. It's delicious and loaded with 6 grams of plant based protein, 4 grams of fiber and 1.9 grams ALA Omega 3s. 

I added 4 ounces of raw goats milk and a dash of bee pollen for a little boost and it was a very energizing start to my day. Check out their website to find a store near you. Your belly will thank you!

Fermentation Crocks

For those who attended our wonderful fermentation class at Three Goats Farm yesterday, here is the crock that we used for the small 5 Liter kraut batch we started. the pricing has increased slightly since I purchased mine last year- however, still a great bargain. Happy FERMENTING!

The base recipe for the 5 Liter was 4 heads of cabbage at 1 Tbsp salt per head.......from their get your taste buds and seasonal bounty involved in your recipe creation. Now go "get cultured"!
