Quick! Does this describe YOU?
Good, because you’re in the right place.
Maybe you prefer to allocate your cheese budget (YES, there’s a cheese budget) to wine or perhaps you’re more of an enameled pan kind of cook. But, the crux, the juice, the meat of this whole shebang is that you enjoy the stimulating-yet-soothing experience of being in the kitchen.
In fact, you might even dig through your pantry to solve problems around your home, including beauty care, cleaning, health remedies, and even pest solutions. Because there’s something alluring and intangibly thrilling about little glass jars full of powders and polishes and throwing pinches of this into that.
You’re a mix of Victoriana, Wild West homesteaders, your great-great-grandmother, and some cutting edge modern rebel. We’re pulling from the past, blending with the present, and looking forward to the future.
It’s a lifestyle, a pervasive perspective that emphasizes the natural, simple goodness of things that come from the earth – whether that’s to eat, wear, or scrub.
Me and you?We’ve got things in common.
- The first pan I bought myself as a real grown-up weighs about 20 pounds and is a glossy black.
- I live for that sizzle of something searing in my skillet.
- I soak my grains, bake my own sourdough, brush my teeth with dirt, and rub my pits with coconut oil.
- I’m young, single, and would rather spend my nights in fermenting something with folk music playing.
- My gut aches, my head hurts, and my body is stressed. I’m overweight, depressed, and exhausted, but I know - I can resolve all of those issue with real, nourishing foods.
- I practice biofeedback, which means I listen to what my body does and does not want.
- Oh yeah, and if I’m hungry – I EAT real, nutrient-dense foods, like cheese, butter, egg yolks, bone broth, and grass-fed meats.
- I’m not afraid to talk about the nitty-gritty details like menstruation, hormones, digestive ailments, and depression.
Life is short, so let’s feel good.
