we’ve gotten real

i have been researching and reading and planning like crazy and still feel totally unprepared for the journey i started today. but today, the oliver’s, well we got real. real food that is. we are making the transition. i have been unhappy with our eating habits ever since we had kids and have gone from avoiding it due to the overwhelming stress of it all, to ditching wheat and dairy and then eating butter and cheese pasta the next day. it has been a mess really, but i think i have found a path that i feel super happy about. it is healthy and enjoyable and although its not fast, it isn’t too terribly slow and complicated either.

so this is what the plan is: we are going to eat animal products from happy animals that get to live the way they were meant to live, we are going to ditch all processed/refined foods and we are going to soak our grains before eating. here is my day today…

breakfast: soaked baked oatmeal

snack: apple and raw cheese slices

lunch: sourdough cornbread cheese muffins

snack: kefir smoothie

dinner: outdoor reared chipolata sausages and baby new potato salad

at 1pm its so far so good! the kids have eaten most of their food and i haven’t melted down with all the changes. awesome.

i’ll be posting my recipes as and when i find oliver approved ones that are worth sharing. if you are interested in my resources i have been researching here, here and here and have been reading sally fallon’s book, nourishing traditions. it is truly awesome. i might even do a book report soon….if i ever leave my kitchen!
