Brave Girl University - Come Join in the Fun!

I found Brave Girls Club  by word of mouth at a local art retreat back in 2009.  It was right after Melody and Kathy hosted their first Camp.  I had no idea at the time what it really was, or who these women were, but I felt I was being called to attend, so I signed up....all alone, knowing no one.  I wasn't afraid, or overly anxious, the need for a retreat overwhelmed any nervousness that I might have felt in going to a cabin in Idaho to stay with 20 women for 5 days.

Well that was 2010, now 5 years later I've been to many Brave Girl Camps, each time learning from not only the Brave Girls team, but from the women from all around the world that attend.  Each woman brings their life experience and shares the lessons they've learned with all of us.  

Since everyone can't attend Camp, the online courses came about and opened up the opportunity for girls around the world to learn the same lessons from Camp and new ones from Melody and Kathy.  The Facebook groups created that space to connect and share experiences with woman around the world.

Not to stand still in their Mission to CHANGE THE WORLD... Melody, Kathy, and the whole Brave Girls Team have a new vision for GIVING women around the globe the opportunity to LEARN from women around the globe!  They have seen it in person over and over that we ALL have gifts to share with others and what better forum to share those than BRAVE GIRL UNIVERSITY!

It's What's for Dinner

Hi All -

Are you in a rut for what to make for dinner?  I feel like I have been rotating 4 or 5 main dishes week after week.  I try to only cook whole food.  No frozen or processed boxes of preprepared food here.  We also don't eat much if any red meat.  So that narrows it down to ground turkey, pork, and fish.

Some of our easy go to recipes are Ground Turkey Spaghetti with brown rice noodles, chicken thighs baked with coconut oil, with perhaps a side of baked carrots or other veggie, maybe a crustless quiche.

I also love the Ground Pork Meatballs with mashed cauliflower in this recipe book.  This book in general has some amazing Paleo meals, ones with few ingredients (a total requirement for me) and just good staples.

Recently I was at the Tractor Supply Store and picked up a great cookbook. (I never thought I'd hang around there much, but with these babies frequent trips are a must!)

Anyhoo, I stumbled upon this recipe book that peaked my interest.  So glad I picked it up!!

There are a number of recipes that I want to try but the one I keep making is the sausages with grapes, polenta, and gorgonzola cheese!!  YUM.  I mean really YUM!  Polenta in a tube is an under-rated under-utilized least it has been for us.  I'm buying three at a time now!

Do you cook polenta?  What are your favorite recipes??

Let me know if you have either of these cookbooks and what your favorite recipes are!

Happy Dinner Planning!

Up next planning on recipes utilizing lots of Farm Fresh Eggs....we are anxiously awaiting our first!
