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

Short-Term Traditional Pickles Recipe

Short-Term Traditional Pickle Recipe

by Tara Carpenter, NC.

In Vermont, pickling cucumbers grow on the vine from July to mid-September. This rush of cucumbers inspired me to find a recipe for a traditional made pickle; one that stood the test of time and worthy of being passed down from one generation to the next. Most of all, I was interested in a recipe that did not use vinegar or canning methods (pasteurization) to keep the natural integrity of cucumbers alive and crisp.  

After playing with various recipes, my sister-in-law pulled a pickle from her crock one summer day; the taste had the classic deli pickle firmness and was raw!! With no vinegar or heat involved.

Soaking Nuts & Seeds (Traditional Method)

A Variety of Nuts & Seeds SoakingNuts and seeds are nutrient-dense and easy to munch; they also contain enzyme inhibitors and plant toxins, like phytic acid. This is why it’s best to soak them in warm, salty water.

When this soaking step is skipped, then inhibitors inside the nuts and seeds can prevent your gut from absorbing nutrients in this otherwise nutrient-rich food. These inhibitors can weaken digestion, steal nutrients from you, and cause food sensitivities. If you already struggle with poor digestion or a health condition like osteoporosis then you’ll want to do all you can to keep your gut strong.

The most efficient way to minimize these harmful enzyme inhibitors and toxins is to make your own nuts and seeds with the recipe below.

Soaking Whole Grains: A Traditional Recipe

Soaking Whole Grains: A Traditional Recipe

Written by Tara Carpenter, NC.

Serving customized cooking, consultations, and meal plans.

Whole grains have been a principal food for thousands of years and are close to being a nutritionally complete food as they are rich in amino acids, carbohydrates, fiber, minerals, vitamins, and fat.

This ancient food strengthens the body with a warm, slow burning kind of energy and grain tastes pretty good too! We top ours with cultured butter, pesto, and sprinkling of hemp seeds. 

Unfortunately, grains also contain enzyme inhibitors and toxins – such as phytates, tannins, and goitrogens – that can harm the body, especially the lining of the digestive tract; extending from mouth to the anus.
