An amazing meal that cooks while you play!
Non-GMO, organic, local, free range, grass-fed ingredients:
Fennel Bulb, Turnips, Japanese Sweet Potatoes “Satsumaimo” (These are deliciously nutritious!)
A very good beef chuck roast with some fat on it to ensure moisture, flavor, and healthiness.
Spices: A small sprinkling of pink Himalayan salt, fresh pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg, cumin, and anything else you like.
1 Crock Pot or Large Dutch Oven to cook slowly on stove for several hours on low.
Health Note: When you use less salt in cooking and you use a healthy kind of salt such as pink Himalayan salt, you get the minerals you need, your body desires less salt, you retain less water, and you weigh less. If your food mostly tastes of salt, you’re missing out on the natural flavors. You can make Sole, I’ll post this recipe soon. It’s simple and a healthy way to get salt minerals each day. A balance of foods is key for optimal health.
Use our Beef Stew Recipe Directions. Place all in crock pot with some water for several hours on low. No need to cut up sweet potatoes, place in whole, but chop up fennel and turnips. Use the whole vegetable of each. (No peeling.)
When falls apart, soft, and cooked through remove and dish up an assortment of the stew. Spoon over some delicious broth, and crumble over some hard cheese such as parmigiano reggiano.
Store in crock pot dish or a glass container with lid. This makes amazing leftovers. Babies and children love it too. The meat and veggies are so soft that they melt in your mouth. The broth is very healthy and gelatinous. (Babies 6 month+, check for individual allergies before trying combined foods.) A meal for the whole family.
Handmade with love, these painted hands are a unique and wonderful gift for relatives and your own family. Make each year for you, babies, children, family, and friends. You could have a whole tree of painted hands as a kind of growth chart meets family tree. Wonderful craft for babysitters and teachers to introduce to children for making family gifts.
Community groups and groups for causes can make these too. They can show how many supportive people there are by a show of hands. This can be a powerful statement and bring an awareness when put in public or as a window display. You are not alone, there are many people all around you who love in healthy ways. Think positive, healthy thoughts and you will see what good things the universe provides for all of us.
Use: Pencil, Scissors, Paper (FSC certified paper is best, see more info here.) Anything to color with such as watercolor paints and a little sized brush. You can use crayons, markers, colored pencils, paint, etc. A pin to poke a hole. String/hook.
Using scrap paper, trace your hands and the baby’s/child’s hand. They can trace it themselves if able. This may take a few tries to get the whole hand, and it doesn’t have to be “perfect.” Each one is unique.
Cut out the hands and trace those onto paper (watercolour paper and paints used with ours). Paint both sides with any design you like. Let dry before painted the other side. Let dry and poke a pin in the tip of a finger or at the wrist. Pin to a board or insert string/hook to hang up on a tree or around the house.
You can use these for holidays or every day! Write the name, date, and age of each person on their hand. Trace as many as you want to give to as many loved ones as you like. Save in a special place or keep up all year in a special place. Add more as you grow. The amazing colors and designs are fun to look at together. See what everyone comes up with each year. This new tradition is simple, inexpensive, and fun!
