Carrot Top Hummus

My carrots have gone crazy! But that’s a good thing. I’ve been picking them and we’re enjoying them as a snack, pickled and in salads. But we’re left with all of these beautiful greens. I’m a very waste not, want not type person and try to fill multiple purposes with items. So I researched and…

Bye bye dairy and gluten

I’ve been dealing with some health issues and after numerous doctor visits with zero solutions, I finally turned to a more holistic route.
