    Can I send you a sample of our ghee made from organic butter from Lancaster County PA grass fed cows? We started out with distribution in our local market and have been getting rave reviews! Just let me know where to send it and we’ll get you a jar to enjoy.

        before, but never would have thought to litearlly make spaghetti out of it. This fun experiment Too Many Jars in the Kitchen tried looks like it turned out great! Conventional spaghetti pasta is not the greatest thing for

      Hi Aida,
      So long as salicylates are not a problem for those who will be eating it, yes, you can use almonds instead of cashews.

        Hi Emma,I’m not sure if you are still posting on this wsbiete but hopefully you can reply From your web site and your posts I’ve understood that dairy can actually be really good at getting the right fats into your body . however I have endometriosis and have been off dairy as i was told that dairy is the main dietary source of Arachidonic Acid (the fat used by your body to produce muscle-contracting F2 Alpha Prostaglandins). I was told that If i reduce dairy then I will reduce the F2 Alpha Prostaglandins which can would otherwise increase pelvic pain, cramps, and inflammation. Just wanted to know if you had any comments on this? Is there a balancing act between the right fats to reduce inflammation and those which promote pain? I really like dairy and haven’t had issues with digesting it in the past.. however because I’m doing lots of other things to reduce symptoms I’m not sure how much good the no dairy is really doing.Thanks,Pogs
