Bone broth, NingXia Red, & No Eggs!

I love eggs.

Fried, scramble, deviled, not so much raw - but just about any other way I truly enjoy.  Since I eat a diet void of gluten - eggs come in pretty handy.  I enjoy them.

I found out this week that I have a sensitivity to eggs and I have been told to avoid them ...... for at least 2 months.

We have new non stick pan just for eggs!

So during this endeavor to figure out the egg part - I also have been searching for true healthy foods - foods that can keep a body above the wellness line.  

Bone broth is one of those foods.  So I made some today.  I used my Instant Pot with 2 cooked whole chicken bones, an onion, some carrots, and some celery.  

The bone broth was surprisingly good & comforting!

My other staple at our house is a juice made from the Wolfberry or Goji berry - called NingXia Red.  It is a special product from the Young Living line of supplements.  

One of my favorite ways to have NingXia Red is with kombucha tea - but Kerry & I each have about 2 ounces a day - first thing in the morning.  Our belief is that it helps us stay above that wellness line (oh and it tastes really good!).

NingXia Red can supplement your wellness regimen in so  many ways!

Wellness is certainly a journey.  

I am reminded that our "bodies are the temple".  I haven't always taken this approach to eating.  I loved fried _____________ (fill in the blank - they are pretty much all my favorites).  Now that I have had various issues with foods and sensitivity - I am on a quest to learn as much as I can about the foods we eat. Sometimes I think it is a curse to have these sensitivities - but in reality it is a blessing.  I honestly believe that the "junk" is not good for anyone - I am just fortunate that it bothers me quickly and gives me encouragement to change the way I am eating. 

I told a friend the other day that I am wise enough to realize that not everyone will view things the way I do and respectful enough to not be judgmental in my presentation of thoughts & ideas.  I can say though - my thoughts come with research - reading, listening, watching.

Netflix is a great place to find documentaries on food and health and eating.

Three of my favorite that have made a positive impact on our lives are (at least to date - I am hoping there are even more to watch....)

This film helped us decide to juice, juice, juice!!!

My friend said that everyone should watch this film.  The ending is almost the best.  LOVE really does matter!!!

I am actually watching this one right now - and I had to pause and finish this blog entry.  I was almost in tears -----  what some farmers put in our food just makes me sad.  I know they do it so they can make money - I get that part - I know they do it because of mass production.  But it is still very troubling.

We are on a wellness journey.
