I thought I'd pass along some recipes:
a successful hamburger/hot dog bun recipe from Heavenly Homemakers to any who have not made the transition yet. My husband likes it which is always an accomplishment since he's very picky. It's actually the same recipe, just the instructions for making the hot dog buns are helpful-http://heavenlyhomemakers.com/whole-wheat-hamburger-buns
The only change I make is I soak the 3 cups of wheat flour in part kefir or buttermilk with the water (or apple cider vinegar, whey or lemon juice) over night.
Here's a yummy popsicle recipe:http://nourishedkitchen.com/tricolored-popsicles-for-july-4th/
I know it seems obvious, but sometimes the simple things of our ancesters we don't think about doing: save your grease from making homemade sausage from grass-fed cows (I have a great recipe for that if you want it, saves money and you stay away from the preservatives) or frying (turkey for us) bacon from antibiotic and hormone free animals; then remember to use it instead of the more expensive oils/fats when cooking. They really season veges well and increase the nutrient absorption. That way, you can save your precious butter for only topping veges after they've been cooked; that way the good stuff isn't destroyed by the cooking heat and you get the nutrients in the butter, too and don't go through it so quickly.
