    Chicken Tikka Masala Indian Meal

    Giant Puffball Mushroom

    Overnight it seemed, these giant puffball mushrooms sprouted in our backyard. We spotted them in autumn last year and let them grow till they popped into greenish brown powdery spores.

    What diet does Hulda Clark recommend?

    Although Hulda Clark wrote a lot about food in her books, she did not recommend a particular diet. Whether you are on an omnivorous, vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, paleo, or any other kind of special diet, you can benefit from Hulda Clark’s lifestyle recommendations.
