Real Food

So, I have been toying with the whole all natural diet for a few years now, and a lot of things have led me to really try and eat better. Our body is our temple that God has given us one of, and we need to treat it with respect, and other than nursing my babies, I need to make sure we put things inside them that God intended for us to eat.

So, I am going to try and get rid of all processed foods. I am sure it will be hard and slow, because I am cheap, and well, good, all natural food is not cheap, but then again, we don't buy a cheap car, so why should I buy cheap, unhealthy food. This is another big change for me, but I am ready lots of benefits from this.

We have already begun ordering raw milk. I only ordered one gallon at a time because it is just under twice as much as our standard "cheap" milk. But my boys loved it, and well it has good bacteria that is removed from the store stuff. On my order waiting for me at home, I also ordered some farm fresh eggs. I am hoping to join a fruit/veggie co-op, hit up our farmers market, and local farms more. Make homemade popsicles and treats, and just feed my kids better.

Wish me luck, because this will be a tough one too.


  1. I've been trying to do this for awhile- being a poor college student it's hard to afford it! In our area there is an organic (mainly) local co-op that delivers fruits, veggies, juices, and baked goods. First delivery is next week and I'm SO excited!
    If you can get your hands on it you should watch the documentary "Food Matters" it's very informative!

  2. is that the one with the cow with the barcode on the cover? I have seen that one. I just got In Defense of Food from the library today. We are starting a co-op similar to that soon :) i am excited.
