Not only will the following links take you to great recipes, but you’ll discover a treasure of excellent websites!

Note: You’ll also want to read through our Beginner’s Guide to Health for the reasons why we’ve included these recipes and not others.


Kitchen Staples

Rather than purchasing canned and boxed staples in order to make your favorite recipes, try making these from scratch. They’re not hard!


Modern condiments are preserved with vinegar, but traditionally, these sauces were naturally preserved through lacto-fermentation. Easy to make!



Soups, Sauces, and Seasonings

Main Dishes


Desserts and Snacks

Okay, so these aren’t all the healthiest, but my goal is to include desserts that are homemade. Used in moderation (once a week?), you should be just fine.

  • Classic Cheesecake
  • Smoothie – a healthy snack, not a dessert. We eat these daily, sometimes twice a day. It helps when you’re hungry for something sweet. I don’t use protein powder. I add in raw milk instead. We make a lot of variations on this recipe. Delicious!
  • Strawberry Slushy – a lighter, sugar-free variation of our smoothie recipe.
  • Popcorn – scroll down. The recipe is under the “Coconut and Palm Oils” section.
  • Pie Crust (I use unbleached white flour for pie dough, and I use butter for the fat. Rather than roll it out on the counter, I dump it directly in the pie pan and squish it into place with my fingers. Much less messy!)
  • Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Recipe Websites

You can find hundreds more recipes in Nourishing Traditions. I highly recommend it….

  1. I just thought I’d tell you (because I support your site) that my nutritionist (who I swear by) says that your body can become dependent upon the animal sources of adrenal like drenamine you suggested if taken more than 3 months in a row. I did and i swear I’m having tons of issues. You might wanna do some more research on that.

  2. Hi, Serena, your nutritionist is exactly right. In fact, it might take a lot less than 3 months. ANY source of hormones, whether from a “natural” source like animal tissues, or bio-identical hormones in prescriptions (such as thyroid, adrenal hormones, DHEA, progesterone, estrogen, etc.), will make your body “dependent” upon them because they interfere with the feedback mechanisms of your brain. Your hypothalamus senses that you have more of a hormone in your blood, so it stops making other hormones. But if you stop taking the outside source of hormones, or if you take it in any way that is not exactly how your body was designed to produce it (too much, too little, at the wrong time of day, etc.), then you will have “tons of issues.”

    You’re right. Each individual MUST do research for herself! She must take personal responsibility. And she should be very, very careful.

    But — keep in mind that some women’s production of hormones is so, so low that they need help! They just need to remember that they might be committing themselves to a lifetime of needing supplemental help. They have to take personal responsibility, and they will certainly have “side effects” any time they don’t get everything perfect, as God intended things to be from creation. It’s a trade off. For some women, the trade off is worth it. However, it should never be made lightly. It’s far better to change your lifestyle, or in other words, to figure out WHY you got sick in the first place, then allow your body time to heal. Some women are so sick, though, that they don’t have the luxury of time.

    Whew! It’s a tough call!

  3. The link for the smoothie goes to a site that is for sale now. Do you have the actual recipe to share? I’d like to see what you put in yours that I may not be putting in mine.

  4. Pep-Up Smoothie

    This smoothie was developed by our family, based on a classic recipe for “Pep Up,” written by nutritionist Adelle Davis, in her book Let’s Be Well. It’s easy to make, tastes great, and really does help you get well.

    2 eggs, from best-quality hens
    ¼ cup whole-milk yogurt
    ¼ cup coconut milk
    ½ cup fruit or freshly squeezed fruit juice
    Flavorings, such as nutmeg or vanilla
    Raw milk

    Add eggs, yogurt, coconut milk, fruit and flavorings to a blender. Briefly blend, then add enough raw milk to equal 1 quart of smoothie. Sip ½ to 1 cup each hour.

  5. Just like carbs and proteins, consuming fat is also a awesome concept to lessen the hunger and craving.
    It is true that a calorie is just a calorie but you want to make sure that
    you are at least attempting to hold yourself to some healthful
    eating guidelines.
