Our family eating style

I have changed up the way our family eats this year. My ultimate goal is to have us eating completely clean. It's a slow progress due to work schedule, life, etc., but we have taken some major strides in getting there.

Currently we are gluten, dairy, soy, and corn free. It doesn't mean that we don't jump off the bandwagon from time to time, but I found out that many of us are actually allergic to most of these foods. Gluten and Dairy are our biggest allergens.

I have truly noticed a difference in the kids and I when we stay true to what we can and cannot eat. My hubby is a different story. While he supports my decision and has even seen the proof in one of our kids, old eating habits are hard to kick. I will say that he has done wonderfully at home and is always up for trying new foods (as long as it's not fermented...but I'll get him there eventually!)

I absolutely LOVE cooking for my family. I love that 99% of what we eat is prepared by myself or my husband. It's time consuming and sometimes I get discouraged when I want to blink my eyes and have something on the table, but the end result is always worth the effort.

My must haves!:
My Vitamix- oh how I love thee!
My Dehydrator
My Crockpot
Almond Flour
Coconut Flour
Maple Syrup
Celtic Salt
Lots and Lots of herbs and spices

Now, if I can just convince my hubby to allow me to get chickens!

Keep this up. I love to hear about your healthy eating. I would love to make the switch to organic. I love to read how families switch from unhealthy to healthy lifestyles.
