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!

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!

Our friend Wardeh Harmon from Gnowfglins.com has a delicious recipe that we had to share! Here’s an excerpt of the basic steps:
I must admit, when I stumble upon something quick and simple and oh-so-now like these nut butter sourdough cookies? Bliss! In less than a half an hour I can have a tasty cookie available for all to enjoy. And since I tend to add as little sweetener to my sweets as possible (in fact, one variety uses no sugar at all!), I happily serve these up for quick breakfasts, snacks on the go, celebrations, before bed tummy fillers, and power foods on the trail.
