My family and I choose to eat whole foods, focusing on healthy fats and preparing our foods in specific ways so that we are able to absorb the most nutrition from them.

As often as we are able to, I choose to use grassfed, organic meats along with properly prepared grains and organic produce. Above all else, my goal is to provide my family with food made from scratch in order to eliminate processed foods from our diet. In order to do so, sometimes I have to relax my ‘grassfed/organic’ rule so that I don’t allow my food budget to become out of control. Of course it’s not the “perfect”, but I feel it’s always best to buy “the best you can afford”!

Breads and Grains

While we are currently eating gluten free, I have chosen in the past to try and make our breads from ‘soaked’ flours or from sourdough. This helps to eliminate enzyme inhibitors and aid in digestion. While I don’t always properly ‘soak’ our grains, I do my best and try and make it a priority but allow myself to be free from guilt should I forget, not have time, or indulge in an ‘un-soaked’ recipe.
