How To Cook and Eat Real Food

I called a friend . . . and nearly sobbed like a baby.  Cried like my sons do when scratched by Ruth, our Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy. 




Change is hard.  Especially when it involves food. 

And that is what I was crying about.

When you leave the prepackaged convenience behind and opt for nutrition and color . . . it is hard.

You have to prepare.  Plan.  Cut vegetables, get out bowls for fresh fruit snacks, boil eggs, sprinkle cinnamon on top of warm muffins . . .




Wash dishes . . .



But it can be done.  And I want to tell you how you can learn to do this faster than I did (6 years in the making.)

For several years it felt like our family was in the middle of Kansas with no car in sight.  I didn’t know many who were eating like us, cloth diapering, visiting Farmer’s Markets, pulverizing baby food, making laundry detergent . . . or whatever else I have listed on my Frugal Organic pull down menu.




It was a lonely place filled with trial and error.  Some U-turns. 

That is why I started Granola Mom 4 God.  (Well, one of the reasons.)  And why I began reading Healthy Moms Magazine

I didn’t want to continue to travel alone.  More importantly, I didn’t want anyone else to travel alone.

Well, now there is actually a class that you can take to jump start your journey into real food, whole food, nourishing food . . .

So . . . if you want to begin your whole foods journey but don’t know where to start, let me introduce you to Kelly, the Kitchen Kop.   She is offering a class to teach you. . . to walk you through the steps towards Real Food. . . she will give you some tips so that you can learn how to change.

    I had a tonsillectomy over a week ago. I think it's my ninth day and I've been wanting real food since day one. How much longer do I have to wait until I can eat something solid, like a cheeseburger?

    I love that celebrities and companies are working to make this a priority- eating right and moving is so important for overall well-being and health. Like it or not- our kids look to tv/music personalities as role models in addition to their parents and I'm happy to see some really positive messages out there -a company I follow on facebook is doing a fundraiser with the Amer Heart Assoc and posted a link about Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution- ( it is towards the bottom on the wall where it posts the Jamie Oliver link). I hope it is ok I posted this here- I just thought there were some really good ideas- stuff we all know but forget sometimes as busy moms. I think it is really cool that they are doing the donation for the AHA too (so LIKE 'em too 🙂 it donates $1 to AHA for each new like for Mother’s Day). Anyway- worth a read. . .

    Real food should be a priority for our kids – teaches them proper habits for the future because they won't know the processes food version as the norm.
