Farmstead Feast

Farmstead Feast: WinterOkay, so I could tease you with tantalizing tidbits from my newest ebook. I could tell you that it's got recipes that will help you tenderize the tougher cuts of pastured meat and to substitute wholesome vegetables for grains in delicious recipes.

Or I could just set the book free for one day only so you can pick up your own copy and give it a read. (And, maybe, if you want to make my day a little brighter, you'll leave a review on Amazon or Goodreads when you're done.)

Hmm, that second option sounds better for everybody involved. So, go download right now while it's free! Enjoy!

These look really yummy! after reading Barbara Kingsolver's book, Animal,Vegetable, Miiracle, I have focused on becoming a more seasonal eater. Your book gives some really practical and delicious ways to utilize some of those late fall and winter garden offerings. i did leave a review, but more importantly, I am cookong one of the recipes for supper tonight! 😊

deb --- Thank you so much for the kind review! I hope the recipes work as well for you as they did for us.

Just downloaded and looks very very interesting. I would like to caution, however, that for folks who have thyroid problems, using brassicas: broccoli, kale, cauliflower, cabbage, etc, can supress thyroid hormone production and should probably be avoided. Similarly, potatoes, especially white or gold potatoes, like Kennebec, or Yukon Gold, are high-starch, high-carb, high glycemic probably should be avoided by folks who are on a low-carb, low glycemic diet. On the other hand, fingerling potatoes and red-skinned potatoes are low-starch potatoes and would probably be okay to be consumed by those folks.

Otherwise, great book! I intend to review it on Amazon!
