Making Meals every day for a Homeschooling Family of 11 people,, (2 adults, three teenagers, 3 middlers, and 3 toddlers)..is an adventure ( to say the least).. in the kitchen.
Honestly, though….The Adventure begins in the Grocery Store..
Shopping for the: Best Buys and Healthy Choices keeps me hopping…
I love new recipes, and do my best to rotate healthy alternatives into each meal.
Want to see some of my favorite things you would find in my Kitchen?
Our Juicer has been a part of my family for 11 years now. I would sorely miss its’ use and its’ beneifts.
Our most regular juice blend is made up of Carrots, Celery, and Romaine Lettuce.
There are so many great reasons to Juice.. ( I will have to do a post soon on Just Juicing!)
My Grain Mill is My Friend! Why?
I can buy wheat ( unmilled) in bulk 25-50#’s.. wheat, white, – whatever I choose..
and run it through my Handy-Dandy Grain Mill for all or any baking I may need flour for.
Fresh whole wheat flour – the BEST!
Rice Milk- We are not big into the dairy drinking thing.( added hormones, etc,)
I have made Rice Milk before, but, honestly.. When I am making practical choices with my time… I have opted to buy it.
I just grabbed a few shots of a few staples that we use weekly.
The path to Good nutrition can be a great learning process.
The simplest way to begin thinking and making a plan for a Healthy Household, is to start with this thought,
“what I put into my body is going to not only fuel me for today, but will be re-building the cells that carry me through life.”
I am going to link a few of my favorite web sites to this blog, so that you can do some reading of your own as well.

Feeding a family on a budget, yet with Healthy Choices is challenging, yet a great habit once you begin.
