My First Bone Broth

So I got my first batch of Bone Broth from Wellness Meats, and loved how good it made me feel, but at $25 a pail I decided to try to make my own..
I got a few soup bones from my local farmers’ market and roasted them up in the oven and threw them in the crock pot with onion, celery, carrots, garlic,a bay leaf,and a bunch of parsley. I covered it all with water and added some apple cider vinegar to pull out the good stuff from the bones. cooked it for 20 hours and had some for breakfast. It was pretty yummy for my first batch. I am letting it cook for another 8 hours..mostly because I need my hubby’s non arthritic hands to strain it for me ๐Ÿ™‚ I am starting to save my chicken bones in the freezer so I can make some chicken bone broth next. I have to remember to get some chicken feet next time I am at the market.
Check out the benefits of bone brothย  and recipes here ๐Ÿ™‚

Spinach and Bacon Ends

Sunday we made baby spinach cooked in bacon ends for lunch. Needless to say my hubby liked it..It had bacon in it ๐Ÿ™‚
We needed way more spinach though…I would say 3-4 times more spinach than we had..
Cook up the bacon until it is crunchy….then drain the excess grease..( lesson learned :))
add some garlic..then dump in the spinach and cook a few minutes until it is wilted…
Don’t put a lid on or it will make the spinach taste metallic..Splash some vinegar of your choice in and some salt and pepper (depending on your bacon ends)..mush around..and walla..NOMNOMNOM

First Post!

Just a warning. I tend to ramble..andย  ignore proper punctuation ..mostly due to momentary excitement or sometimes swollen RA fingers ๐Ÿ™‚

So I finally finished setting up this website to track my RA health issues and to bitch and moan a little ..Most likely I should have just set up a blog spot or some other random pre made blog, but I am geeky, so any excuse for a new website….
I seriously have a domain addiction problem.

I recently moved across the country from Arizona to North Carolina. Between poor eating, stress, and extra activity my body has been in so much pain. I have been the flare princess.
I am back on track with my food ,ย  eating AI Paleo, and found an ND that seems to be on the ball.
This is definitely the worse I have been since I was diagnosed, but I am working on it, and determined to get myself more mobile.
More icky medical details soon!
