Let’s Get Cultured- Easy Fermented Foods Recipe Book

Hey Bliss Bombs,

I’m so excited to share the release of this awesome new fermented foods book with you. I had the grand opportunity of contributing recipes alongside experts, health advocates and chefs like Donna Gates and Kevin Gianni.

The book, “Cultured: Make Healthy Fermented Foods at Home” boasts recipes like watermelon kimchi, homemade miso, kombucha, and the healthiest of chocolates, kefirs and MORE. Plus, this stuff seriously tastes great.

But it’s not just about recipes. This is a very user-friendly compilation of history, how-to’s and what-for’s on fermented foods, and I’m so grateful to be a part of it.

Kevin Gianni (editor of this gorgeously delicious) book says that “Fermented Foods May Be the Healthiest, Most Affordable and Easiest to Make Superfoods on the Planet.” And, I couldn’t agree more. You know I love these foods for more than just their taste. They totally helped save our family from autism , candida, acne, seizures, acid reflux and so much more.

Please let me know if you have any questions about fermented foods and their use in healing your family. I am happy to share.

You didn’t think I’d leave you without a recipe, did ya? Never. Check out this one from the book:

Homemade Garbanzo Miso Recipe

5 cups dried garbanzo beans, soaked overnight (traditional soy is used, see side note*)
1 cup sea salt
3 tbsp unpasteurized miso
5 cups koji
1 cup cooking liquid

Equipment:

A one gallon glass jar or a crock of similar size
Plate, lid or wooden disk that fits snugly inside the jar
Heavy weight or clean rock
Thick cotton cloth to cover everything

Cook the beans until soft. Strain and save 1 cup of the cooking liquid. Allow beans to cool and dry in a strainer for an hour or two. Process beans in a food processor for desired texture.

Dissolve 3/4 cup sea salt into 1 cup cooking liquid to make a brine. Mash the 3 tbsp unpasteurized miso into 1 cup brine. Mix brine (containing salt and 3 tbsp miso) with the koji.

In a big bowl, add processed beans to this brine mixture. This is your miso.

Packing for Fermentation: (I often do this part first while the garbanzos are cooling.)

Wet the sides of the jar slightly with hands dipped in water. Place some salt inside the side of jar, put the lid on or cover, and shake it around, coating all sides and bottom of jar or crock with a salt layer. Pack the miso into the crock/jar with clean hands, press down firmly. Spread a generous layer of salt over the top. Place the flat object on top and put the weight on top of that. Cover with cloth and secure well with a tight rubber band, string or tape.

You have the option to continue the fermentation process, and like with fine wine, it only gets better with time. If you decide to continue fermentation for another year it is good to test it out and repack it again with salt.

Miso years are calculated by the number of summers it has aged. So, if you have gone through one summer of fermentation, then you have one year old miso. I like to start my miso projects in the spring time, so they are ripe and ready to experience the warmer temps of summer when they tend to be more active.

*You can make this recipe using soy beans as well. Just be sure to use organic soy, since there is less chance of genetically modified contamination.

What is koji and where can I find it?

Koji is a Japanese rice on which koji mold spores have been cultivated. This process allows for the fermentation of koji rice, which is the primary ingredient in sake. Although koji spores can be bought, they usually have to be bought from specialty importers. However, fermented koji rice that has already been inoculated with the spores can be found at your local Asian grocery.

Helpful Tips:

It is important that your miso is packed tightly, free from oxidation and protected by the salt layer. The cloth will also help to keep out impurities and unwanted bacteria.

Label your crock/jar with the date. Store the jar in a cellar, basement or other cool, dark spot where it will remain undisturbed. Have patience and ferment for one year. (See “miso years” above.) Open, scrap off top layer and celebrate with family and friends… your very first batch of homemade miso!! It should smell rich and savory like tamari. Pack it in clean, glass jars with plastic lids and refrigerate or store in a cool place.

DeNiro My Hero: Robert DeNiro Stands Up for Vaccine-Injured and Vaccine Truth

My kids are still sleeping. So, here I am dipping my gluten-free crackers in avocado and relishing in the alone time. As if my heart wasn’t full enough already, I see the headline of this video, and notice that Robert DeNiro is speaking about vaccine truth on main-stream media.  The Today Show, for Love’s Sake!

I Still Have So Much Crying to do over autism: Moon-Day Musings

crying-eyes

I haven’t cried much lately. And, I am someone who really benefits from a good emotional release through tears. Whether it be inspired by a total girl movie, like “The Notebook” (which incidentally, I refuse to watch anymore), the pain of the world,  or a song, I love it. I honor it. I’m not afraid to let those tears flow. I love crying. Read more

A Note from Autism #2

A Note from Autism

I want you to see what I see and hear what I hear. I want you to feel the texture of the air on your face the way I do. I want you to know that sometimes you think I’m not responding because I am checking in with all of the data-bases in my head to decide how to best share with you.

 

Sometimes I need alone time for that. Sometimes I need to dance my body, shake my hands, spin, hum, chew on something or even make noises that are weird to you. I cannot help that I am so full of information to share, nor can I help that you don’t already have a means for understanding my ways.

 

But, I’ll tell you what, if you look and listen you will see what I mean. If you try, you can clearly see that I am always responding to you. Always. That I am always trying to communicate with you. I don’t care if you don’t like me or think I’m weird. That is not my concern. But, I did come here with a message and if you don’t get it, none of us will feel accomplished.

 

It doesn’t matter how I got this way. Maybe I came here this way. Maybe I came to open you up to something more magical than you have ever imagined. Maybe I came to show you how to heal yourself and your planet. Our planet. Maybe I come from a place I remember dearly and wish to retain many of my own customs. I certainly did not come here to conform. But, that doesn’t mean I don’t have things to learn. Show me how I can feel better in my body. Show me how I can embrace my path even deeper. Show me how I can have more fun and feel more successful.

 

 

And, Mom and Dad,

 

I want to feel good.  I really do. I might fight things I don’t understand because I’ve had to create boundaries for my own safety. Sometimes my body, mind and spirit are not in alignment. It’s difficult to explain. But please please don’t give up on me. Soon,  you will be able to understand what I’m fighting over fear and what my body is actually rejecting. I chose you because I trust that you will find the right help just for me. Maybe it’s new foods. Maybe it’s a different way of thinking. But, I know we will find it. I know you can help me feel better. And, you already have.

 

Every time I look into your eyes, I see your heart. And, I remember why I chose you. One day, I’ll show you how to do that too.

 

Thank You!

Unschooling Monday Moon-Day Mayhem: Getting Angry and Loving It!

Those chocolates are a combo of raw organic coconut oil, raw cacao powder, sea salt, raw honey, and fresh raw almond meal! we blended, molded and froze for about an hour. Great Moon Fudge ❤

The Moon influences the way we feel. Think about it. Notice when your emotions are high or low, when you feel more-so reflective, dreamy or passionate, and then take a look at the shape of the moon.  Or find out what sign it is flowing through at the time.

Of course, astrology being the first science, there is a great deal of information about how the stars above inspire the way we think, feel and act. The Moon tends to have a more noticeable effect on us Earthlings because it is so close. (I’m aware of many theories about how and why the moon was created including the idea that our current moon is a hologram. But, I decided to make this post short). Read more

Autism and Reiki: How to do Energy Healing at Home

20120525-192237.jpgWe healed our family from severe autism, seizure disorder, candida, food allergies and many other health imbalances with something more than just diet. In fact, Doug, who was a skeptic about the nutritional aspect of our healing at first — jumped right on board after he had a profound physical shift with energy work. Within five minutes of distance healing, his previously shattered shoulder bones physically moved back into place. That was 7 years ago. We now use energy work every day. And we keep finding new reasons for needing it and new ways to use it. Read more
