Grain-free Primal Apple-Cardamom Breakfast Popover Recipe

Grain-free Primal Apple-Cardamom Breakfast Popover Recipe I think cardamom is an under-utilized spice. If youre not familiar with cardamom, it has a slightly sweet, pungent flavor that can be used in savory meat dishes, curries, and baked goods. You can also add some to your coffee grounds.

Strawberry Picking and a Primal Pie Last weekend Dave and I took the kids to pick strawberries. I love doing this type of thing with the kids because it reinforces the idea that eating plants is interesting and fun. They will be four years old in September, so they are old enough to legitimately help pick… or at least not stop us from picking once they get tired. Luckily for us, we live close to a lot of u-pick farms. Last year we...
