Denise’s Story.


This is such wonderful news and I’m thrilled to announce that she has officially entered the second trimester!

If you haven’t read Denise’s complete story, you can find it here.

Denise’s assessments and recommendations are much more detailed than what is in this blog post. Here, I am sharing her most important issues and some random topics. The information that is shared between us is extensive and continual.

For a brief update, I met Denise last August when she won my ‘Biggest Contest Ever’. She and her husband were trying to conceive at the time. Sadly, they achieved pregnancy only to lose that baby in a miscarriage. Since then I have not spoken to Denise. Until now.

We met up last week and I immediately felt the excitement in the air as she told me about her current pregnancy!  She definitely has the pregnancy ‘glow’!  She has been experiencing nausea and food aversions, and all those wonderful things that let a woman know she has a growing baby inside her belly!  Denise has quit drinking coffee, easily because that is one of her aversions.  She also has lost her appetite for meat.  By eliminating all meat from her diet, it is especially important she watch her intake of protein and iron. She needs more of these during pregnancy for herself and her baby.  Luckily, she likes fish and seafood.  By eating fish a few times a week, as well as beans, legumes, eggs, nuts and seeds, she will do well.

I look forward to sharing her prenatal journey with you, as she nears her due date in August.

Please join me in sending warmest wishes and congratulations to Denise and her family!

Traditional Lasagna with Homemade Pasta

Fresh, homemade pasta makes this lasagna a new favorite in our house.  I admit, this is the first time I’ve made pasta from scratch.  It is definitely worth the extra work.  And really, it isn’t that hard.  🙂

I used beef from grass-fed, free range cows.  You could also use bison, turkey, or any other ground meat.

I do recommend using a pasta machine.  I did not, and ended up with thicker noodles.  It was still delicious!

Traditional Lasagna with Homemade Pasta


4 ½ cups whole wheat spelt flour

1 tbsp sea salt

6 eggs



1 lb lean ground beef

1 onion, chopped

1 clove garlic, minced

28 oz canned crushed tomatoes

1 ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese



Mix flour and sea salt in a bowl and make a hole in the centre for the eggs.  Crack the eggs inside and whisk, gradually adding the flour to the mixture.  When most of it is mixed, remove from the bowl and place on a lightly floured surface.  Knead into a ball and set aside for about 30 minutes.  If dough is too dry you may add some room temperature water, one tablespoon at a time.  If dough is too wet, sprinkle with flour.

Cut ball into four pieces and roll each piece with a rolling pin.  You may use a pasta machine for thinner noodles (and less work!)  Cut edges and set aside until ready to use.

Place ground beef, onion and garlic in a skillet and cook over medium heat until beef is cooked through.  Add crushed tomatoes, setting aside ½ cup to be used for bottom and top of lasagna.

Cover the bottom of a baking dish with ¼ cup crushed tomatoes.  Place the first layer of noodles on top, cover with ground beef mixture.  Top with shredded cheese and repeat the process until you have 3 – 4 layers.  Cover the top layer with the remaining ¼ cup of tomatoes and shredded cheese.

Cover with foil and bake at 350 for 45 – 75 minutes.  The thicker the noodle, the longer it will take to bake.
