I am very excited about my achievements in the kitchen these past two weeks!
We are eating a diet that is at least 80% whole grains, traditional, no refined sugars and flours!!!
Those of you who used to follow me on Grace in Bloom know that this traditional/whole foods diet is nothing new to our family. BUT, we have been off of it for at least 6 months. I was too tired with pregnancy to cook healthy foods. I am still tired now! BUT I know that without proper nutrition I will never get any stronger!
I have been trying out a lot of new recipes, and making over some old ones... it is not an easy task. BUT, it sure is rewarding! I LOVE the feeling of instant gratification and satisfaction from making a meal from scratch - no boxed foods, no cans!
We want this blog to be practical and helpful to our readers. And, I feel that healthy recipes make for a healthy family! So, over time, I will try to put on links to the internet recipes I use. I will also try to mention some nutrition books that have influenced me. Lastly, I will try to post about converting recipes to whole foods... but this is a learning process (mostly through trial and error!)
OH - and I am completely off of caffeine (for some time now)! AND, I have not been drinking soda! Yippie!
