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
