Simply Canning with Sharon Peterson and Wardeh Harmon

In this episode of Know Your Food with Wardee, you’ll meet Sharon Peterson, a frugal mom and wife who says, “food finds its way into jars in my kitchen”! In this podcast, we’re talking about mostly about canning but we find our way into family work ethics, our mutual love of jars, and out-of-the-ordinary pantry setups. I also picked her brain about canning meat, as she’s an expert at putting up what her husband and sons bring home (they love to hunt). Sharon is warm and fun and we had a great visit. Please join us!

Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis with Maureen Valdivia

In this episode of Know Your Food with Wardee, you’ll meet Maureen Valdivia, who began her real food journey after more than 10 years of worsening symptoms of Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis (a thyroid disease). She learned that conventional medicine couldn’t help and in fact made her worse. So she began her own healing journey using real foods, traditional food preparation methods, gluten avoidance, and finally a gut-healing diet. Today, she is feeling oh-so-much-better and has experienced 100 pound weight loss (without even trying). Auto-immune disease sufferers or those specifically with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis will find great inspiration and resources through Maureen’s story and experience. Plus… the tip of the week!
