To health

Yesterday, I had some precious time to myself that I spent mostly at half priced books. (everything is an additional 20% off right now!) I bought this new cookbook about raw foods. I don't think that a completely raw diet would ever quite suit myself or my family. But, the book offers some wonderful information and amazing recipies (although it looks like they all have about a gagillion ingredients!) I won't call it a New Year's Resolution, but I do want to start learning more about how to provide my family with more delicious, healthy food. I would like to teach my children to be good stewards of their health and to educate them about all of the wonderful benefits there are to eating food just the way God made it. We may even start a garden in the Spring.


  1. I almost killed myself with a raw diet. I didn't have half enough information to do it right, and also believed a lot of hogwash. I didn't know about fermenting foods. But a raw diet with fermented foods is significantly healthier than one without. Still, I can't recommend an extended raw foods diet - short-term for cleansing is fine, but long term we need more protein.

  2. prairie princess,
    Thanks for your insight. It is always good to hear advice and opinions from those who've tried it. Yes, I don't think that I or myself could rely solely on nuts for protein, but I do think that we could stand to significantly cut down on meat and dairy.
