The Foods We Eat
By we, I mean all of us (Including you reading this). I just found a blog this morning that I am extremely impressed by. Ship full o' pirates, she makes her own deodorant for her family (healthy and cheap), she makes her own bread (mulitple loaves per day-she has a BIG family), and she makes her own condiments (Ranch and ketchup). She makes the bread and condiments due to High Fructose Corn Syrup. This article about HFCS is astonishing. I have been trying to avoid it for the Prince because of his behavior sometimes. But HFCS is in EVERYTHING! read the article and check out her blog you'll be amazed I have only read a few of her posts so far but really I am inspired to make more things on my own and not rely on the grocery store for everything by purchasing products in their most natural state and then creating from there. The thing that would save me the most time would be to make double of things, like banana bread, zucchini bread, pizza dough.... and freezing the extra for another day-not stuffing ourselves with the delicious banana bread all in one day. One suggestion I read in a free e-book from Minute with Molly was to bake all on one day, say Saturday, you would make your bread, muffins, loafs or whatever for the week. I hope you are inspired too. By the way that free e-book is awesome!
