Thank you to our sponsor Jovial Foods!
Are you desiring to start feeding your family real, whole foods, but just don’t know where to start? Do you wish to cut out processed foods but think the task of switching to foods made from scratch takes too much time or is simply too expensive.
If that sounds a bit like you, then I’m so glad you’re here.
I began my journey in real food nearly 8 years ago. I come from a very traditional family so eating home cooked meals was always something I was used to; however, there were still many things I was eating and making a part of my diet that I didn’t realize was doing me more harm than good.
Once I had my first child, I realized that I needed to make some changes that would promote vibrant health in my son. I started by buying organic produce, using butter instead of margarine, cutting out high fructose corn syrup, and doing my best to purchase pastured meats from local family farms for my family. Through the years, I’ve had to do a lot of research so that I could do the best to incorporate these foods on a tight budget all the while, filtering out dogmatic approaches that cause more of a burden than anything good.
It’s these years of research that I plan on simplifying and sharing with you!
25 Day Grace Filled Journey to Real Food
Each day, for 25 days, you will receive an email from me teaching you the basics of switching from a processed, standard American diet, to one in traditional real foods.
You can expect some of the email topics to cover…
- What kind of cooking oil should I use?
- It’s time to cut out the high fructose corn syrup.
- Consider using part of your tax return to invest in pastured meat from local family farmers.
- It’s okay to not buy everything organic!
- Why it’s so important to drink milk that’s either low temperature/non-homogenized milk or raw.
- What in the heck is lacto-fermented vegetables and why should I be eating them?
- An introduction to natural sweeteners.
- What’s a carcinogen or free radicals?
- You don’t have to make everything from scratch! It’s just not sustainable!
- What’s this BPA everyone is talking about in my canned foods?
Those are just 10 of the 25 emails you will be receiving covering health topics.
Since I also want you to be able to start utilizing the information, I’ll also be sending you emails covering cooking technique and skills in the kitchen such as…
- What kind of pans should I be using?
- How to make your own creamed soups.
- It’s time to learn how to make broth.
- The Mediterranean secret to phenomenal vegetables.
- If French kids can eat everything so can yours!
In order to help you begin this journey, I’m not only going to be sending you these emails everyday, but I’m also going to send you a nourishing menu plan on a budget every week for 3 weeks!
That’s right! You will get a total of 15 breakfast recipes, 15 lunch recipes, and 15 supper recipes.
The supper recipes included will take you no longer than 30 minutes to make and will be filled with nourishing vegetables, mineral rich bone broths, and pastured meats.
I’m praying that after the 25 days, you’ll have a good grasp on living a life in real food and can continue this as a life long journey.
Grace Filled, What Does That Mean?
I did not want to call this a challenge. You see, to me a challenge, although great to complete, usually has a starting point and an end. You accomplish something and then you move on to something else.
This is more of a journey. The 25 Day Grace Filled Journey to Real Food is a place to begin where you can build a solid foundation, and then continue on this path for life.
Like I mentioned above, this is not a dogmatic approach to eating. It’s a common sense approach that will emphasize cooking at home, making real nutrient dense meals; however, if you’re living in the same world that I am, the reality is that we can’t make everything from scratch and sometimes we just don’t have the desire or energy to cook.
So, as part of this journey, I’m also going to send you…
- a better option restaurant document
- another document filled with products that I buy at Trader Joes, Costco, and my local grocery stores.
Let me tell you, as a homeschooling mama of 3, wife, homemaker, and blogger, it’s such a good feeling to be able to buy some things already made or go out to local restaurants that do a better job at sourcing their ingredients.
That my friends, is a grace filled journey to real food! So, are you ready to start this journey with me? Good, I am too!
