So we don't make New Year's Resolutions, but one thing we do is make some changes. In previous years, we have stopped purchasing bottled water...using only our Britta, and cutting MSG (Monosodium Glutamate, Spices to name a couple of it's other names) out of our diet (boy that is a lot of label reading) This year, these are five ways we are changing how we eat.

Grass fed beef only. (And only milk from pasture fed cows for the kids and in our cereal. Have you ever smelled that corn smell when you open your kid's sippies? It's because those cows were fed a diet of corn. only. Cows were not meant to eat corn.)Have you seen Food Inc.?
Free range, cage free chicken and eggs. Next time you purchase eggs...try cage free, free range...those shells are so thick and the yolks are so dark and yellow. I never noticed the difference until I was cheap one day and bought the regular white eggs and was appalled at how light the yolks were and the shells were so fragile.
NO MORE ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS Ever. ever. ever. Stevia has been great for us, and Agave nectar.

NO MORE of this junk. It's awful. It is in almost everything..thus, we are going more organic as well.

And we want to eat a lot more of these. A lot more.

  1. You go girl! And the veggies are such beautiful colors aren't they? How about rainbow chard- ymmmm! I totally agree with you on the eggs too. My ch-ch-change last year was to eat local and in season, of course sometime you need bananas and oranges though, don't you think? Keep up the good work!
