I’m a mom. I have two beautiful children that were waterborn in my living room. You can read their stories here and here. I’m a researcher. Questioning the status quo comes naturally to me, which is why I rely on evidence-based research to guide my decisions on food, vaccinations, birth, full-term breastfeeding and a bunch of other topics. I’m just a mom that’s passionate about nourishing my family in every way possible.

GAPS Hot Chocolate - with gelatin!!! just made it. was looking for a way to get some gelatin in since i havent been good about broth recently. skipped the coconut oil and halved the cocoa (cuz i think they've been bothering me recently). it's REALLY good! i would lower the honey for my taste next time tho. and also use softened butter if possible to make it faster. http://www.lovingourguts.com/gaps-hot-chocolate/
* If you want to make this diary free simply double the coconut oil and eliminate the butter.
