What this means? Fruits. Vegetables. Oats. Tofu (made at home). Fish. Rice. Nuts. Seeds. Some beans here and there. I'm sure I'm missing something here. It isn't about restriction; it's just about eating the things we need and ignoring the restof the consumer-driven food world.
Our diet is fairly healthy, but I really want to get us back in the rhythm of eating right all of the time. If you've read a few of my other posts, you will know that we've been doing a lot of baking lately, and that has led to a little more sugar in our lives than I'd like to admit. I bought a bag of flour for the first time in five years. Well, the bag of flour is empty and it's time to go back to our original way of living. Flour-free. I know that by doing so, we will eliminate all of the other stuff because eggs and butter only come into play when we are baking. We will not be using any form of flour, not gluten-free or anything. If we make desserts, they will be raw or the non-cake-shaped variety. Roasted peaches with pistachios or something.
Part of the reason I am doing this is because I'v noticed a little behavioral change in my child. The only ingredient that is different in her everyday life is the baking. I'm going to teach her how to bake "sweets" without the sweet. When I was younger, I baked without flour, butter, sugar, and eggs....so I'm going to teach her those tools. Really, I just prefer our "from the ground, in whole form" eating lifestyle to the "baking" lifestyle. If that makes any sense.
Of course, my recipes will still be delicious.
Anyways, I'd love to have your support and maybe you will jump on the bandwagon.
Thanks for listening.
