Today is always a good day to have a picnic, even if it’s on a picnic blanket right in the middle of your living room floor.  If the weather changes quickly, as it does during this time of year, moving inside is a quick way to allow that change to have little impact on your …
A simple yet nutritious salad with basic ingredients for a dressing, can make a delicious, tasty meal and still fit into a cleanse protocol.

Can Coleslaw be Healthy?--A collection of 5 healthy recipes
I love etymology.  I realize that this confession will confirm that I am very strange, but I don’t care.  As I was preparing this post, I wondered how a salad made from sliced cabbage came to be called coleslaw.  A quick visit to www.etymonline.com provided me with all the information that I needed.  If you …
yak meat in black bean chili
Is game meat better than conventional meat?  Conventional meaning: beef chicken, turkey, pork and the like.  Well, animals raised in healthy environments can supply nutrient-rich meat, which contains all amino acids and various micronutrients.  In nature, animals exist for their own reasons, not just for our use.  Game and wild-type meats have a much healthier …

This simply small kitchen has brought it’s challenges, not only to my posts here at Simply Healthy Eats, but to the dietary changes I instituted a couple years ago. Yet after this post, I’ll be saying good bye to the galley-like kitchen. I’m moving to a larger unit here on the Ranch, a much larger …
Today, I want to post about spaghetti squash.   You’ve probably seen it in your local store.  An oblong shaped yellow orb,  spaghetti squash is named for the long strands that the flesh of the squash is composed of.  Spaghetti squash doesn’t taste like spaghetti, but the threads of flesh are of a similar size and texture to …
  Galley-like kitchens are a great ‘make-do’ for a weekend get-away residence.  Yet a ranch house is home for now and that ‘kitchen’ is my cook space for the next little while.  Now, to make simply healthy food in it, that is the challenge. My home is on a working ranch which was established back in the …
