What Is Healthy For My Family To Eat Every Day

I often ask myself, what is healthy for my family to eat? This post is a follow up to yesterday’s whole food post, as in my fruits and vegetable article. I really want people to think whether the food they feed their family is healthy or not. Here’s the deal, I can’t make that decision for you, and you wouldn’t want me to. We all have different tastes, needs and wants for meals. Here is the post on Whole Foods. I read books, research and watch documentaries to learn whatever I can to live a healthy life.

Why Eating Whole Foods Is Good For You

I want to explain why eating whole foods is good for you and for me. If you are on a special diet, you need to follow your physician’s suggestions. I am not a doctor, nurse, or anyone in the medical field. Have you been around someone who says “I’m Vegan or I’m a Vegetarian?” I remember many years ago ordering a half of a cow that was grass fed at the time and freezing those beautiful white packages in the freezer.

Cooking From Scratch Is It A Thing Of The Past?

Cooking from scratch is it a thing of the past? This last weekend I had part of my family here for Thanksgiving. Ellie wanted to make creamed chip beef on toast or homemade rolls.

Anyway, I was using my iPhone and of course, at the end of the filming, someone screams “what?” Well, we all laughed and then I tried to “edit the video” to get the loud word removed.  I own it, I cannot edit videos as of today.  So I do not have a video on how to make a roux. Life is life, we just roll with it.

How To Stock Your Kitchen For Survival

Have you thought about how to stock your kitchen for survival? If you think about it, in most cases after a disaster, what we have today in our home may be what we will have to eat or drink for days or weeks and possibly, months. Now, this is assuming our home or apartment is still standing. Today, I drove into town (ten miles) and it was beautiful to see the Christmas decorations, like the trees, the brightly colored lights, and Poinsettia plants. I actually ran into a hardware store looking for a pickle crock for my home. I accidentally dropped my favorite one and it broke into bits and pieces. Luckily, the store had the exact one I wanted. It’s a plain and simple cream-colored pickle crock and I love it.
