Heathy Eating !!

Well, the family is doing well with our healthy eating...about 2 months ago, we decided to start eating "real" foods and get healthy. Cullen and I are tired of being run down and want to feel better and well as have heathly children. We have cut white sugar, hydrogenated oils, enriched flours, high fructose corn syrups from out regular diet. This has been a real challenge because most regular packaged foods have one or more of these products in them. It has caused a major change in the way we not only eat, but cook and buy food. We already grow most all of our own meat, and eggs, and some of our fruit and veggies, but we needed to do more.

We are finding that more time is needed to cook, you cant just throw our a package of stove top any must have your own whole wheat bread and corn bread to make stuffing from more instant box have to bake and make whole wheat goodies with honey...and no more quickie meals at fast food joints...more home cooking and pre made, pre frozen meals for those quickie times...

Overall, the change has been good and we are actually doing well at this. The biggest issue is actually hand grinding wheat...this is time comsuming and hard work and needs to be done constantly to keep up with the needs for baked bread, and such. We are working on getting a different set up for this but not sure what I want at this time.

Anyone care to share their whole food recipes...feel free, I could always use more!!!
