Finding out you have a food allergy can be devastating.
Finding out you have a food allergy can be devastating. I think my first thought was, "What does that mean?" You ask your doctor and he says just avoid that food. It's just a skin test. They aren't entirely accurate.
I am going to attempt to give you ideas and recipes on how to avoid corn. It can be quite the challenge.
Sorry that my blog is evolving into a little bit of everything in life.
When I make Ancient Harvest Quinoa I make the whole box. The box contains 1 3/4 cups of quinoa. I rinse it, and put it in a pan. I add 3 1/2 cups of water. Simmer 20 minutes. Cool then put some in the fridge and some in a ziploc freezer bag.
I grounded up some of the dehydrated green onions and put them in a jar. I used some of the ground onions on kale chips. I made the kale chips with acv, water, honey, salt, onion powder, and a dash of grapeseed oil.
Currently I am doing a combination of both. I use the Savonnerie Shampoo once or twice a week depending on how oily my hair is. I inherited oily scalp. All in all I have to say that I am not having dandruff any more since getting the food allergians out of my diet.
Side note, hair rinse: I steep my herbs in a quart jar and keep them in the fridge and use about 1/2 a cup or so to a tsp? acv in a pint jar. I top off the pint jar with hot water as I am running the water for my shower.
I filled all 7 trays of my dehydrator with squash and ended up with less than a quart of dried squash. Cut the squash 3/8 thick steam blanch for 2 minutes, cool in ice water, place on the trays, set the heat to 135, ran for 9 hours, turned down to the coolest setting, went to bed, and they were all dry when I got up. Put the dried squash in a quart sized freezer bag. Labeled with the date and popped into the freezer. I plan to use in soup or something this winter. I have to add that while the squash were drying I tasted a few and they were pretty sweet and tasty.
Next time I plan to cut the squash thinner and sprinkle with cayenne and salt, maybe some ground dill too before drying.I am not going to blanch.I am hoping to make chips.
I started in February out of hunger. :-) I was harvesting lettuce by April. Put most everything else in in April. I am in EastTN. I think I am going to have a watermelon in a couple weeks. I looked up how to pick one yesterday. It’s almost ready. We will also start having eggs by next week. Yeah! I am excited about that. I have to say I have had gardens before, but this is a first year garden since we moved here a year ago. When my plants don't seem to be growing I have been side dressing them with the 10-10-10. It seems about every 2 weeks. I am having a hard time with my cucumbers being bitter. I am guessing its fertilizer, because after I fertilized they seemed to get better. I have been meaning to look it up.
I was just up at my little hardware store. I am trying to support the little guy when I can. They had a note on the door that they will be getting fall plants July 25th for Aug 1st planting. Cole crops broccoli, cabbage, brussel sprouts.... I was able to clean up the area where my lettuce and broccoli was and put in sweet potatoes. My white potatoes look like they are ready. I have to look up when to harvest those. I was cleaning up where the peas were and onions. I hope I will have enough space for the cole crops by the end of the month. I am debating about using the 1/2 decomposed straw chicken manure. It has some of their corn feed mixed in. My chickens are not feed commercial food. Its a mix I get special from a natural farm. If I didn't have the opportunity to get that feed I'd drive a little farther for the organic. I figure for the most part that if I let it decompose really well (maybe over winter) the corn will become dirt again and not give me a problem. I just don't know.
