Salmon heads are packed with tender meat and abundant fat along the jawbone. They are especially prized for making fish stock as a base for soup of all kinds and contain vitamin A, Omega-3, iron, zinc, and calcium.

I was apprehensive to make salmon head stock. Though I had experience with chicken and other meat stocks, I’d never made fish stock and imagined the whole house smelling ‘fishy’.

Chicken Stock Recipe

Chicken Stock Recipe

Written by Tara Carpenter, NC.

Serving customized cooking, consulting, and menu plans.

Chicken stock, like any other meat stock, is rich in minerals, gelatin, and collagen. All of which keep bones/teeth strong; joints supple; and hair soft. I personally experienced my hair improving tenfold when I started drinking a quart of stock each day. In a matter of weeks, my hair softened and with much less grey! Thank God for collagen ….

As a kid, I fondly remember the soup going on the back burner of our stove; my mother always simmering bones after the supper roast had the night before. The scent of onion and bay leaves would permeate into the wooden floorboards of my bedroom above perking my nose and want to wander down and have a bowl. As I got older and became a vegan, meat became a distant memory

Watermelon Popsicles for FUN

I hesitated to write this recipe because it’s so simple. Yet, we don’t bring our basket of cookie cutters down off the shelf everyday and I got some photos, so here goes an easy-to-make recipe.

True to name, watermelon is an excellent source of water …. one cup contains 20% of your daily value of vitamin C and 14% for vitamin A. Watermelon also has a lower calorie content than most fruit; delivering more nutrients per calorie.
