Fall into Health Autumn sale!

What’s so special about the first week of Nobember (1-7) It’s the Fall into Health Autumn sale?

I have posted about amazing ebook bundles like this is the past, but this Fall into Health Autumn sale is different… and much better.Never before has Village Green Network (my blogging buddies) put together such a big bundle full of not only ebooks, but online classes, discounts, podcasts, magazines, and meal plans. There are even awesome giveaways you can enter with the Fall into Health Autumn sale.

Click HERE to learn more!


Excellent E-books

I’m a total research and book nerd. Seriously, if you took a look at my bookshelves you would know what I’m talking about. I read and read and I never seem to be satisfied with knowing just a book, I want to read 2 or 3 books on the same subject. Call me crazy, but that’s how I roll. When I saw this Fall intoHealth sale, I jumped at the opportunity, because I wanted to read these (excellent) books to add to my research section of my brain.

I’m going to be honest, I am addicted to reading these ebooks. I can’t get over how much I have learned in the past 3 days, I feel like I can tackle any allergy friendly diet, every health issue, and give a complete face/body and house makeover. Do you think I’m getting carried away? You will just have to read these 47 Ebooks to see for yourself what I’m taking about, and then maybe you will go into the full I-can-cure-detoxify-do-anything mode. Just wait and see 😉

Sale includes:

  • 48 ebooks
  • 15 exclusive podcasts
  • 3 online video classes
  • 2 meal plans
  • 2 magazines
  • 20 discount coupons for great brands!

This is the LAST bundle of the year, so don’t miss out!


Lucky for you, there are also some extras in the bundle (I think I’m just as excited about). I like listening to podcasts while I chop my vegetables or boil some soup or tea. It’s a nice way to multitask and actually I find it keeps me focused. These podcasts are exclusive to this bundle and it’s only offered for a limited time only (Nov 1-7).

Learn more about each Podcast speaker HERE!


Online video classes:

Don’t get me wrong, I love reading but sometimes I just want to watch something. I think I’m a visual learner so that’s why I like to blog, because I can put my thoughts and accumulated knowledge from my extensive research into a physical post with pictures. It’s a part of me that I don’t think I will ever let go of now. Anyways, I was really surprised to see 2 online classes. I may or may not have done a little happy dance…no one was watching ;).

Learn more about the online classes Here!


Meal Plans:

There’s more (I know crazy)! You get 2 meal plans too. I have never been one to use meal plans because of my severe allergies, but now that I’m able to eat more foods, I’m starting to need inspiration. After taking a look at them, I think they will actually go to good use! Yippee!

Learn more about the Meals Plans Here!



I like getting caught up on the most recent news and recipes and flipping through pages of yummy pictures. Magazines inspire me to experiment in the kitchen and try something new. You will get 7 issues of the Healthy Recipes digital magazine and 7 issues of the Paleo Living digital magazine (3 moth subscription). The writers are authors, recipe makers, bloggers, and even doctors.  I bet these are going to be good!

Coupon Codes:

Im not the only one who shops online. I actually find that companies are more willing to make allergy free and real food items now days. You may not find everything you want in the stores, but I actually think its easier to just have stuff sent to the house. I really am excited to see a Berky coupon!! Primal Pit paste is awesome, Cultures for health is a must for fermenting things, Radiant life has about everything. These coupons will be put to good use.

Learn more about the Discount Coupons Here!




$39 is the price for this WHOLE bundle of ebooks, classes, meal plans, magazines and coupons! Actual values listed below:

Total: over $2000 + in value!! If you want to talk numbers, I think you are going to be blown away how much you are saving. As much as I like my books and research, I don’t have extra cash lying around to buy many things. That being said, If I were to buy books/classes/meal plans, I would save it all up for THIS Fall into Health sale.

You guys it’s $39 !!!! Normally you could maybe get like 2 of these books for that price. You will never get the online classes of meal plans for this price. You won’t get a chance to hear these podcasts again because they are exclusive! All of this together is worth over $2000 and you are paying $39. It’s a crazy good deal for some pretty awesome books.

What do I think of the books?

I got a chance to read many of these books (If you are wondering, I categorized these books into categories I think seemed fitting).

The recipe books made me drool. There were so so many recipes but I was really excited about the ones that were grain-free/ dairy free/ egg free/ GAPS! These bloggers really have stepped up their  allergy free cooking skills.

The healthy living books made the  research neard in me come alive, I was on edge after each page. I mean… talking about metabolism, circadian rhythm, estrogen dominance, detox… Don’t get me started.

The healthy home books were awesome because I’m all about using nontoxic stuff.

The homestead books give me something to dream about for my own home someday ( it’s never too soon to plan right?).

The body and beauty books are always something new for me and you may already know I am a fan of the Eczema cure (which I wrote a post about here). The detox and cleansing  books are inspiring and motivating. 

I’m always an advocate for detox and these books are surprisingly thorough. Oh I can’t forget about the plan and guide books, which are excellent for people who are just getting started or like to have “what to do” written out for them. I found them handy.

Can you tell I just want to tell you about each book right now? Because I do!! But you will have to wait and watch out for a post each day this week (Nov 1-7) when I feature a book that I simply loved or learned a lot from.

Soaked brown rice flour Pumpkin muffins

Soaked brown rice flour Pumpkin muffins

The cool, crisp fall air brings out the “bakers”. They gather up their beloved pumpkin and spices and churn up their oven. The smell of cinnamon and the cold cups of milk await the treat in the oven. Soaked brown rice pumpkin muffins are the perfect fall treat. They are healthy, nutritious, and can be a quick breakfast or after school snack.

Baking time

This recipe has been in a folder almost a year now, along with about 20 other recipes. Why have I not published them? Because I lost the coconut oil-sticky-honey stained recipe scraps. Am I the only one who does this?  Good news, I just found them all and I promise to write them up for you now that baking is “in season”. You know what I mean…these cool fall days make you want to to crack open the baking cabinets and mix up some yummy treats to share.

GAPS and soaked brown rice

Soaked brown rice was one of the first grains my mom started to eat on the full GAPS diet, so I got a lot of practice baking with it. Im out of practice now baking anything really, but maybe getting this post out there will spark my interest and creativity again. In this post I show you how to make soaked brown rice flour from scratch.

*Remember: Don’t substitute regular rice flour, because it will end up much denser (the soaked and dehydrated kind is much fluffier). Plus, soaked grains are a must for mineral absorption.







  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Add rice flour, baking soda, sea salt, cinnamon, clove, and ginger in a mixing bowl.
  3. Combine dry ingredients well with a whisk.
  4. Combine wet ingredients in a separate bowl (honey, pumpkin, apple sauce, water, eggs, melted butter, vanilla bean, 2 tsp apple cider vinegar).
  5. Pour wet ingredients into the dry bowl and mix until combined.
  6. Line stainless steel muffin tin with non bleached parchment paper muffin cups.
  7. Fill up tins 3/4 full.
  8. Cook in oven. 15 min for mini muffins. 25 minutes for regular muffins.
  9. Mix coconut butter and cinnamon until smooth. Top warm muffins with coco-butter mix you just made.
  10. Enjoy with a glass of homemade coconut milk, or raw milk!

Do your allergies cross-react?

Do your allergies cross-react? If you are allergic to celery will you have a carrot allergy? If you are allergic to ragweed will you have a zucchini allergy?

Random allergies explained:

Have you ever experienced a random allergy? I have and its scary wondering if it will happen again. Its also confusing how allergies to foods can just pop up with no warning! I used to think these cross-reacting allergies were just a coincidence, but little did I know there was a actually a direct link between the foods I was eating or pollen I was breathing.

Cross-reactions can be confusing but a little knowledge can guide you in the right direction (or food!). There are hundreds of combinations and food allergies and its impossible to figure out each person’s allergies. Even for myself, my allergies can slightly vary weekly and it gets frustrating. I try one thing and am fine, but the next month I suddenly start having a runny nose, fluid retention, mood swings, etc. Do you feel the same way?

What if I told you there may be a reason behind all this confusion? It took me years of trial and error and having allergic reactions to finally connect the dots. Read about my recent struggles here. After I finally started cracking open the books and research articles and skimming over various plant family names, I think I figured out the big picture out. It did not seem so random anymore.

To make it simple, Im going to break it down into 2 categories: OAS (oral allergy syndrome) and food families.


Oral allergy syndrom

OAS (oral allergy syndrome): OAS is a common name for having an allergic reaction to a food (ex. zucchini) that cross-reacts with a plant (ex. ragweed). Typically people only report a burning or tingling sensation in the mouth or extra mucus. I find that the symptoms are not limited to that and you can experience anything really. Some common symptoms for me are swelling, fluid retention, irritability, swollen eyes, heavy mucus in the throat, excess hunger or nausea, and hives.

What about breathing in the food vapors or pollen? Yes its possible to still have an allergic reaction to cross-reaction foods even if you don’t eat it. I know Im extra sensitive, but this is not uncommon. When its late August and the ragweed pollen count is sky high (you are breathing in the allergens), it is more likely for you to react to the cross reacting foods such as lettuce, zucchini, sunflower, etc.

Actually for some people this is the only time they get cross-reacting food and pollen allergies. When the pollen count for that particular pollen goes down then you may be able to eat the food with no problem (most people can). For some, cooking the food allows then to eat it because it denatures the proteins. You have to figure out how sensitive your body is.


Most of these combinations are not always predictable so its nice to have list handy. The reason why certain foods and plants cross-react is because the proteins in the food are similar to the proteins in the plant. The body gets confused so instead of eating a zucchini, it thinks its eating ragweed! Yikes!


Cross-eacting food list:

Orange: cane sugar, mesquite

Celery: tomato, potato, tobacco, sage, mugwart, carrot

Milk: mint, elm

Beef: bakers yeast, brewers yeast, cedar, (grass or corn- their feed matters here). Im allergic to grass and beef.

Pork: black pepper, poisin icy, oak, sumac

Dust: seafood, nuts, shrimp, lobster, crab, squid, scallops, clams, oysters, mussels, snails, cockroaches, silverfish, moths, mosquitos, peanuts

Mold: cheese, mushrooms, truffles, high glutamate foods- fermented foods

Latex: bananas, avocado, chestnuts, kiwi, poinsettia plants, shea butter, tomatoes, potatoes, celery, cherries, melons apple, carrot, celery, papaya, pear, mango, sweet pepper, peach, rye, cayenne pepper, plum, wheat, shellfish, hazelnut, sunflower seed, pineapple, walnut, citrus fruit, strawberry, soybean, coconut, fig, peanut, chick pea, grape, buckwheat, castor bean, apricot, dill, lychee, passion fruit, oregano, zucchini, nectarine, sage, persimmon, cucumber, ginger, dandelion

Birch tree: apples, apricots, cherries, kiwi, nectarine, peaches, pears, plums, tomatoes, carrots, celery, green peppers, parsnips, peas, potatoes, anise, caraway, cumin, dill, fennel, parsley, almonds, hazelnuts, peanuts, sunflower seeds, walnuts, potatoes, persimmon, soy, wheat, herbs and spices

Grass: lettuce, kiwi, melon, organs, tomatoes, celery, potato, watermelon, cherry, wheat, rye, barley, peaches

*herbs and spices: anise, basil, caraway, dill, lovage, marjoram, oregano, paprika, pepper, tarragon, thyme, wormwood, fennel, coriander, cumin

Food Family

Food Families: A food family is a classification of a plant. If you look at the two pictures below (source Wikipedia) you will see on the left hand side lists many names starting with Kingdom, Clade, Order, Family, Genus, and Species. What you are looking for is Family. Looking under the Family section is specific enough, but not too specific.


You may need to click around to find the latin names or species ranking for the plant to find exactly the right Family its in. I first typed in “zucchini” and from there look for its Species name which is Cucurbita pepo. I then type in Cucurbita pepo and now I can see all the rankings for these foods, including the Family. The family name is Cucurbitaceae (highlighted in yellow in picture above). From there you can find what foods and plants are in that Family category.

Foods in the same Family share a similar molecule structure inside and can cause you to react to several or all foods in that Family. As an example: I’m allergic to all foods in the Cucurbita pepo category. I’m allergic to most of the foods in Apiaceae (parsley family), but can eat cilantro. So classifying your foods in Families is not going to be black and white, but it will narrow your cross-reacting allergies significantly. Sorry if this is confusing, but this is how I did most my research and I want you to know how to do this for any other foods.

I personally don’t like using all the Latin names because it confuses me. Instead I give the family a name that seems more appropriate. Below I will list the food families and the foods included in each.

What to do about your allergies?

If you suffer a wide range of allergies and its overwhelming to you, I think you need some major gut healing! Doctors may tell you, “its normal.” or “Just have to take this and that and you will be better.” or “Just avoid ____” .  Did you know allergies are just a symptom that something else is wrong?
I am working on healing my gut too. The GAPS diet can seal up your “leaky gut” and eventually reduce your food and environmental allergies. You will be amazed.
To get started, read the GAPS book or buy the 30 days of intro Ebook. Next check out my GAPS recipes and GAPS articles. Read up on coffee enemas because your body will need some liver support (another common remedy for allergies) and an outlet for all the toxins.
NAET allergy elimination technique is also a noninvasive way to get rid of your allergies for-good using meridians and acupressure. I had it done for about 48 treatments and saw amazing results. I am no longer allergic to many things thanks to NAET. Read about NAET here.
For acute allergic reactions, take a detoxing clay bath and drink powdered activated charcoal. They both work internally and externally to absorb the allergens in your system.


Here is a chart you can refer to help you remember!
