REAL FOODS MARKET SLC GRAND OPENING!!!

Real Foods Market recently opened a new store in Sugarhouse (Salt Lake City), Utah! If you want to learn what its all about, and you should want to, (because they are amazing) come to their GRAND OPENING and learn about their farm, and meet some baby animals from Redmond, Utah!  This is where their RAW MILK, eggs, Redmond Clay, Real Salt, and grass fed meat comes from as well; all from HAPPY grass fed animals with no antibiotics, hormones, or pesticides (from grass). I've also heard there will be prizes, food tastings and more!

And just so you know, I think (correct me if I'm wrong), Real Foods Market is the only store in SLC that carries raw milk: milk that is not pasteurized.  This stuff is DANG good, and SO healthy for you.  Many people that are lactose intolerant can have this kind of dairy because of the presence of lactase which is an enzyme that breaks down milk sugar. The presence of lactase in raw milk, as well as friendly bacteria helps aid in digestion.  So to sum it up: its good, REAL GOOD! They also carry raw cheese, and farm fresh eggs from their farm in Redmond Utah. 


The Redmond Clay is basically a cure-all it seems.  I have yet to try it...but I am excited to do that soon. The general clay is excellent for first aid, as a facial mask, extremely good for detoxing the body, as it can be taken internally. Leslie, who is an educator for Real Foods, has Celiac Disease and has said it has helped her often with extra stomach issues when she has been accidentally slipped gluten and such from restaurants, or other food. There is also toothpaste (earth paste), and baby powder.

Real Salt is another product that is all natural, from the earth, with all of the minerals there for you to enjoy.  This salt has so much flavor.  The other night we had used up the last of our regular salt and then began using Real Salt.  Such a difference; I'll never go back! 



Real Food Market promotes eating the obvious: eating real food: organic, from the earth, not adding a bunch of junk that isn't useful to your body.  From the website it states:

"Real food goes far beyond the popularized organic vs. non-organic distinction.  Real food is nothing more or less than food created by Mother Nature and eaten in its natural, unadulterated, pure and nutrient rich state.  In theory, if you cannot pick it, gather it, milk it, or hunt it-it is not real food."


So come to the Salt Lake City, Real Foods Market Grand Opening.  Learn, have fun and of course....eat REAL FOOD! :)

Freezer Homemade Fries & Sauce

I LOVE fries!  I would make them more but it seems like a hassle when I'm trying to get dinner ready, kids are screaming, and I'm trying to dodge cheerios on the floor.

Then along came freezer fries and my life is far richer (lol)....not the ones you buy at the store that kinda look potato-like, but the real things.  They are also MUCH cheaper.   So instead of letting your potatoes sit around, and hoping that you remember to use them, you can make fries....yum....

To see my post on what to do with a 10lb. bag of potatoes go to The Coupon Project.

First wash and scrub potatoes ( I don't peel because I think it's miserable work)
Cut into 1/2 inch fries
Toss with oil (I usually use Canola)
Add salt and a little sugar (makes them crispy)



Place them on a baking sheets and bake at 475 for 20 minutes (they will only be half cooked)
After baking, let them cool on paper or dish towels Put in freezer on sheet (I have a small freezer so I used pie tins) Let them freeze solid (ab…

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!
