Fathers Who Harm

Father's Day has become a more highlighted day of celebration than when I was a child. My father was born in 1927 and lived a pretty long life: he died in 2013, a few months into his 86th year. He was not a bad father. He did struggle with alcohol addiction and was imperfect in other ways, but he was basically loving and kind. He was a workaholic, so we did not have access to him for emotional affirmation, but he told me in his old age that he always loved everything about us kids and felt sad that he had not been a better parent, and he was sorry he was most of all that he had not spent more time with us.  Other men in my family– my grandfathers, my husband, son, uncles, brother– have all shown themselves to be good guys and have adult children whom they love(d) and who love them back.  But I think to myself, having been a social worker to women and children who fled lives with men who put them and their children through Hell, that there are probably a fair number of children, te

Keto Flex Recipe: Collard Leaf Wraps (Snack)

These are tasty and really really really easy to put together Collard Sprout Wraps. I  stuffed the wraps with Broccoli Sprouts (low carb, high in liver-supporting sulfur compounds) but if you aren't into sprouting, you can use broccoli slaw (sold in bags). INGREDIENTS:  Collard Leaves ( I removed the tough spine and tore into small pieces for wraps that were about two bites worth) 1- 2  C.  Broccoli Sprouts 1/4 to 1/2 C. Tahini Juice from 1 Lime 1- 2 Garlic Cloves (or powder) Mince the garlic, if using, and add it and the lime to the Tahini, mixing until pretty much homogenous. You can add the sauce to the sprouts and mix, or use it as a sort of dipping sauce for the rolls.  I mixed them all up together, and rolled it up into the little collard pieces.  It was yummy and satisfying.
