I am a rebel. I like to eat red meat. I think butter is good for me. I drink my milk raw. I avoid pre-packaged foods like the plague. I don’t believe the health claims on food labels. And, I like my food to be fresh, wholesome, and traditional.
I’m a wife, a homeschooling mother, a nutrition & wellness coach, and a passionate advocate for what I call “real food” — as opposed to the edible food-like substances which dominate America’s food industry today.
Influenced by the research of Sally Fallon and Mary Enig, the work of Weston A. Price, the voice of Michael Pollan, and the heart of the agrarian poet Wendell Berry, I am an empowered woman. And I’m determined.
I want to save lives.
My family’s life.
I want us to shout a collective and resounding “NO!” to the killers overrunning our society: diabetes, heart-disease, obesity, and cancer. After years of studying nutrition, I believe I know the root cause of all these diseases — the Western Diet. The fast-food obsessed, over-processed, ignorantly-prepared diet of the Average American.
Yes, I said ignorant. Despite the many millions of dollars spent on the health food industry every year, we are dying. Our information is tainted. The diet dictocrats in Washington are in the pocket of mammoth agribusinesses, and they’ve confounded and confused the American public long enough.
Have you ever heard of the research documenting how traditional people groups who transitioned to a Western diet (and subsequently got heart disease or diabetes) then returned to their traditional diets only to experience a rapid recovery?
Traditional diets have withstood the test of time, yet that knowledge is swiftly becoming scarce.
This is my meager attempt to rectify the situation.
I want to empower people to choose wholesome, healthy, traditional foods — pastured meats and dairy products, organic vegetables, soaked or sprouted grains, fermented vegetables and beverages, and bone broths.
I want to strip away the mystery and intimidation we face when we think about preparing lacto-fermented sourkraut, a fresh loaf of sprouted whole grain bread, or a glass of kombucha.
I want to give people the tools and confidence they need to radically change their diet, to rebel against the dominant food culture, to become a food renegade.
To that end, I created this site. If all this is new to you, go read the articles under “THE BASICS.” When you’re convinced you want to be a food renegade, click on “REBEL” to find out what products and services we offer to help you on your journey.

Instant Deep Meditation
Did you know that people who meditate are much happier and healthier than everyone else? It‘s true. And they have greatly extended life spans, too. As a matter of fact, there have been numerous studies showing that meditation dramatically reduces, and even reverses disease of all types—including cancer.
But the benefits of meditation don‘t stop there. Studies also show that experienced meditators—those who are able to achieve the deepest levels of meditative states— are able to tap into dormant levels of brain function they never thought possible—levels of function that exist in each and every one of us—resulting in increased intelligence and moving us closer to answering life‘s mysterious questions.
Upon closer examination of meditators‘ brains, they consistently show to function at a superior level than the average person‘s on every single test, measurement, and assessment generated among the scientific community. In fact, if you do your homework, you‘ll discover that many of history‘s greatest inventors, philosophers, and scientists received their revolutionary, future—changing ideas during their daily meditation sessions.
Just imagine what you could do if you had access to these deep levels of meditation!
One of the reasons meditators experience greater levels of happiness and health is because meditation significantly increases the brain‘s production of several euphoric chemicals—the same chemicals that flow through your bloodstream on those days when you‘ve never felt better. Even more, meditation allows these euphoric brain chemicals to be produced constantly.
Meditators also sleep much better than those who don‘t meditate. As a matter of fact, they have shown to need fewer hours of sleep every night because their minds and bodies are completely refreshed and rejuvenated during their highly pleasurable meditation sessions. Meditation is many times more powerful than sleep.
Meditation is also known for providing its practitioners with superior mental and emotional health, it rids our minds of subconscious layers of anger, depression, anxiety, fear, phobias, and sadness, and produces a perfect mental and emotional balance.
And get this—people who meditate are known to have more friends, maintain healthier relationships, and feel a great deal more satisfied and content with their lives.
With all of the dramatic improvements meditation can bring to our lives, why isn‘t everyone doing it?
Well, for one, traditional methods of meditation often take a considerable amount of time and effort— every single day. And it sometimes takes years, even decades, of practice before you are able to reach the deeper states of meditation required to achieve life transforming results. The learning process can also sometimes be boring and feel like a chore. As with everything else, only those who are extremely dedicated, disciplined, and committed are able to attain the life—enhancing benefits that meditation has to offer.
If you‘re like most people, you don‘t have hours upon hours to commit to daily meditation. And the last thing you want to do is spend years practicing before you get anything back in return.
But what would you say if we told you that with just a press of a button, you could reach the same deep meditative states as those with decades of experience? And get the same results in a matter of days and weeks, plus a host of other life—enhancing benefits?
Well, thanks to Equisync, you can achieve precisely the same electrical brainwave pattern (also see this page) of profoundly deep meditation safely, simply, and effortlessly. A few minutes of your day is all that is necessary to transform your life!
Its all done via EquiSync's cutting-edge, precisely designed brainwave synchronization technology.
Back in 1839, Dr. Heinrich Wilhelm Dove, a Prussian physicist and meteorologist, discovered that when you introduce tones with certain frequencies into each ear, you could actually entrain the electrical patterns within the brain to resonate in very specific patterns, called brainwave states. In 1973, ground-breaking researching by Dr. Gerald Oster, a biophysicist, renewed interest in this powerful field of study, laying the foundation for the hundreds of studies conducted since then, boosting the technology‘s significance and importance immeasurably.
With these studies in mind, Equisync‘s revolutionary, multi-layered, multi-tiered approach was born. So what makes Equisync so powerful? We harmonically layer the perfect equilibrium of isochronic tones, binaural, and monaural beats, powerfully synchronizing your brainwaves into a state of deep meditation, multiplying your meditative experience.
Many psychologists, doctors, teachers, and other professionals have endorsed the technology while personally taking advantage of the limitless benefits that accompany Equisync‘s precisely designed brainwave synchronization technology. It is such a profound field of study that many of the metaphysical benefits, those beyond our current scientific measure and technological & philosophical understanding, have yet to be discovered.

Setting people free and pissing others off since 1996!
Founder: Reverend Steve Galindo (ReverendSteve@edwood.org)
What you are about to enter is The Church of Ed Wood.
We are an internet church that practices Woodism. Woodism is a pop-culture-based religion created in 1996 by Reverend Steve Galindo. We follow the late cult director Edward D. Wood Jr., and we look to him as a savior. We at The Church of Ed Wood use Ed and his films to inject spirituality into those who get little fulfillment from more mainstream religions like Christianity. By looking at his films and his life, we learn to lead happy, positive lives. We strive for acceptance of others and of the self.
You might think that it's silly or stupid, but Woodism currently boasts over 3,000 legally baptized followers worldwide! That's over 3,000 who have joined Reverend Steve Galindo in keeping Ed Wood's spirit and message alive! You might think we're silly or stupid. And that's fine with us. After all, we don't expect you to believe in Woodism. We expect you to respect the OUR belief in Woodism.
The Church of Ed Wood upholds the morals and ideals of Edward D. Wood and tries to preach Ed's message of total understanding and acceptance, regardless of what modern society may say. In doing so, the Church of Ed Wood discusses issues of sex, race, drugs, and transvestism in a frank (and oftentimes graphic) nature. As such, it has been known to upset easily offended, self-righteous, puritanical people.
If you are such a person, I strongly suggest that you go elsewhere. If, however, you are of an open mind and think that you that can handle Woodism, please continue. And remember, my friends, as Saint Criswell once said in Ed Wood's magnum opus "Plan 9 from Outer Space" ... Future events such as these will effect YOU in the future!
