Hope this new post finds everyone feeling well! April showers have hit our area and I am anxiously waiting for the beautiful green grass and flowers that follow.
In the past couple of weeks I have been reading and watching many documentaries on fresh food, organic meats, local options and ways to make wonderful meals for my family on a budget. Food is most nutritious in its whole form, fresh is best.
We have changed our lifestyle greatly over the last few years and I am committed to continue tweaking it to ensure I am doing the best I can to provide a whole food menu. As the warm weather begins I am hoping to start a small garden. We lead a busy life in the warmer months and I hope to be able to manage a small crop to help create meals. If you are unable to have a garden yourself I highly encourage you to visit your local farmers markets and support your area farms.
I wanted to share some of the documentaries I have watched with you so that you can determine your own thoughts on the foods you choose to feed your families.
All of these I found on Netflix:
Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead
Forks over Knives
Food Inc. (Not for the faint of heart!)
I hope to blog about the cost of the garden and the cost of fresh items that I find at Farmers Markets over the Spring and Summer months and how I use the items to make meals for my friends and family!
Keep Fresh.....and save dimes!
