The Best Cookie

The Walnut Surprise cookies in my first cookbook are, surprise! not brownies.  Unprepossessing, they are delicious and always a hit.  The best cookie ever.  But now I use the basic formula to make great flourless and gluten-free cookies.  I love the fact, no matter which variation, all it takes is a bowl, wooden spoon, and a strong arm.  (Read, too, later in this newsletter about coconut sugar, suitable for diabetics, perfect for these cookies, now available in our bulk department.)

Ouch, Ouch. Arthritis

There are 101 different kinds of arthritis, and 101 ways to treat each one.  Rather than try to go into all of that here we don’t want to get arthritis in our typing fingers! this is going to be a quick, hopefully simple, guide to some of the most basic concepts, and the most effective ways of treating this disease.

WHAT IS ARTHRITIS?  Arthritis is an inflammation of the joints, causing pain, inflammation, stiffness, and eventual destruction of joint cartilage.  The most common kinds are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.  It is possible to have more than one kind at once.
