    Hello. I was wondering if you have a recipe for a French type dressing called, WESTERN Dressing. It is my husband’s favorite and I have tried to wean him off the store bought because of the horrible ingredients.

    I absolutely love your blog and content. Every now and then I attempt your recipes but they never look as pretty
    as the images you post.
    What template do you use for your blog?

      Thank you Silvia 🙂 I’m sure they are fine! This is Rosemary theme.

    I just found your blog, I have been seeing a nutritionist who has me a diet based on my metabolic type, I have a had a lot of success in gaining weight and I am getting back on to it after straying off. I plan on trying a lot of your recipes but I wanted to ask you if you can give some names to some of the products from Costco you mention please 🙂 We frequent Costco and I would love to pick up a few things if I can find them.

      Hi Kristin! Some of my staples are their organic frozen veggies and when we run out of our summer fruit picking from the big freezer I use their organic frozen fruit too. I like their organic quinoa, coconut oil, raw nuts, avocado oil, olive oil, maple syrup (when our local one runs out), pure cane sugar, the Kerrygold butter is good if you don’t have some local, etc – is there anything in specific I’m missing that I have mentioned before?

    I do not like raw eggs and was happy to see you have a mayo with no eggs. I would like to know if you have a recipe to make non-animal yogurt?

    I’m searching for a new laundry and dishwasher detergent. Just wondering if you have any recommendations? Thanks!

      Hi Danielle! I use the Kirkland Eco-Friendly laundry soap from Costco – you can also get it on Amazon ( ). And then for the dishwasher I use whatever natural brand our Costco is carrying at the time – they seem to go back and forth between the Seventh Generation brand BioKleen – you can find both on Amazon too ( ) ( I hope that helps!

    Hi Rene-love your FB posts. I’ve been wondering about your nettle tea. Couldn’t find a recipe for it on here. Do you just make it with the leaves & hot water, or do you add something?

    Thank you,

      Hi Sue! Thank you! The typical rule of thumb on teas or infusions is 1tsp of herb per 1 cup of hot water – I make a quart or 2 at a time so i just triple that. I do put a heaping tsp of hibiscus herb in there as well as it makes the bitter nettles more palatable especially for the kids. I like a squeeze of lemon in mine. Sometimes I’ll add a little raw honey to the girls’ but they drink it without that just as easily. I hope that helps!

    Sure have been enjoying your recipes Renee! Bless you.

    Completely different subject … does anyone one out there have healthy uses for watermelon rind other than pickles? (sorry, but I never learned to like vinegar!)

      Hi Heidi! Thank you for your kind words! I have not used them other than pickling them!

    Hi Renee! Love your blog and especially your IG posts! Was wondering….we are NOT a gluten free family. Can we use all purpose or wheat flour to replace your GF ingredients? Or is it not an easy conversion? (Specifically looking at the vanilla bean cake with the rice flour and tapioca and potato starch…..) THANKS 🙂

      Hi Sarah! Welcome!

      It is really going to depend on the recipe as to how to make the swap but yes most of the recipes you should be able to swap it out for AP flour or wheat. The vanilla bean cake should be a pretty equal swap I would imagine. I hope that helps!

        Thanks for your quick response!

    I absolutely love your site! You have some of the most delicious recipes! I’ve been on a mission to clean/green up our home and food and live more chemical free since before my daughter was born. With all the information out there I was wondering if you could recommend some books for reference that you might use or websites? I see on FB you reference Westin A. Price. Thank you so much.

      Hi Anna! Thank you for your kind words!

      Yes I have some ideas! I do have a book coming out in the fall so you can keep your eye out for that! The title is Nourished Beginnings!

      I love the Nourished Kitchen everything so you can hop to her blog and look at her site as well as her books – very down to earth and informative. The WAPF website is also a good resource. Real Food Renegade blog as well as The Nourishing Gourmet and Mommypotomus are some of my favorite blog reads as well. I hope that helps!

        Thank you so much! I’m anxiously awaiting your book! In the meantime I will check out some of the others!

    Renee, I really enjoy your website and Instagram postings! I’ve also shared the info with my daughter who has 3 small boys and she cooks very similar to you, and she also enjoys your info! Thanks for your time and effort! My question is, Do you ever cook and feed your family pinto beans, black beans, etc….. and if not, why? Thanks for your time. Tina

      Hi Tina! Thank you for your kind words and support!

      I am a big fan of beans/legumes so long as they are soaked/sprouted (properly prepared for best digestion!). I am a Hashimoto’s fighter and beans just don’t jive well with autoimmune thyroid issues – I miss them! So I make them every so often for my kids who tolerate them well but not as much as I would like. You can hop over to my sloppy joes recipe and see how I prepare them for kids sometimes! There is also an AMAZING refried beans recipe on the blog as well as a tutorial for how to soak/sprout. I hope that helps!
