I like food.
Truth…Bottom line…Unequivocally so…Period.
I am not one of those "eat to live" kind of people. Not that I "live to eat," but good food is just that — good…and I definitely believe it is a gift from God.
I try not to become obsessive about it. Really. But a girl's gotta eat…as do Mr. Big, Little Mr., Little Miss, Little Bit and my Daddy…and they like three squares a day..and a snack or two in between! Therefore, food's on my mind quite a bit.
People who prep are on the self-reliant side. They're not going to be the ones in the handout lines when times are tough. Being self-reliant, in my mind, also indicates that we're not relying on boxed, pre-packaged, pre-mixed whatever. No condemnation if you are, but it's a whole lot healthier if you're not.
How have I changed our eating? I'm steering us away from foods containing high fructose corn syrup, MSG, white flour, and a multitude of things I can't pronounce. I still use white sugar, but in decreasing amounts. (Granulated honey has been a great replacement.) With all of that in mind, I'll be sharing foods (surprising and healthy) and favorite recipes — all yummy & pretty easy. Trust me, I'm not one to eat cardboard. Like I said, "I like food." It's been a journey into healthier food for us, and there are so very many things I'm excited to share.
Use it all.
Share your own journey.
