Sending good wishes for healthy teeth, KC!
Thanks so much for chiming in Susanne. Fluoride is a hot issue, depending on where you stand. I truly wasnt sure how I felt about it when my daughter developed her ECCs. What I will say is that her ECCs developed when we lived in town and drank fluorinated city water. Currently we live in the country and have untreated well water. I do not believe that fluoride played a negative roll in her tooth health and perhaps was helpful despite her epic decay, but it is not something that we are getting now and her teeth are great, so the difference is noteworthy. I will address diet next week when I discuss the other changes that we made. Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts.
It has been several years since I promised to write you a post outlining how we managed ECCs (early childhood caries) in our home, as well as we handle normal oral hygiene and tooth troubles like decay. Finally it's time.... Continue reading

What if I told you that you could make homemade, throat-soothing, cough-quieting, delicious, nourishing, cough syrup in less than ten minutes? Plant medicine free of food coloring, artificial sweeteners, and chemically pharmaceuticals you can hardly pronounce. And what if I... Continue reading

Hello kind people. Though these busy days have me posting less frequently here, for those of you on social media of one kind or another, I have been sharing words and photographs now and again. If you care to follow... Continue reading

I'm normally 95% process and 5% product. It's more about the journey than the destination for me. That makes me a great starter but a lousy finisher. It makes new projects more exciting than old. It makes me move slowly... Continue reading

(Unrelated photos from last weekend.) Moving to our farm and choosing to keep animals was a given. Chickens and sheep, then a llama, goats and a cow. Living on a small farm and keeping animals is something I've long dreamed... Continue reading

Yesterday began with a red sky and ended with red apples. My VW Beetle loaded to the roof with apples, to be precise. It had been a while since the kids and I took off on a "mystery day" adventure... Continue reading

I started this morning with eyes down. Focused on chores and schedules and dishes and to-do lists. I had animals to feed and tea to make and email to check. Eyes up and I noticed the eastern widow glowing crimson... Continue reading

What a thrilling journey, Camille! Enjoy it when you can. Also remember: one path is not right for all people. Make sure that what you choose is a match for you and your kids. Hugs.
Yes! It works beautifully.

It isn't always easy to know what change you need. But if you listen you will discover what will help. Blessings, mama.
I hope things fall into place soon, Brynn. Hugs.
I appreciate the encouragement!
Kind words. Thanks Casey.
Brett, the almond flour is in there just for a little softer texture. You could also use a smaller amount of coconut if the garbanzo doesnt do the trick (though I think it will, beautifully!).
