Aren't We Always Learning?
When I had my son in 2009, I knew I wanted to change how my husband and I approached food. I wanted my son to view food as fuel for the body. I decided I didn't want to flutter from diet to diet. I don't believe in fads and I don't believe in "diet." So for about a year now, I've been working on changing what we eat. I'm the guardian of the kitchen. I do the grocery shopping and I cook the meals. I know that I am directly responsible for what my husband and my son consume. I started by changing our proportions, making the meal less about meat and more about fruits and veggies. Then I started looking at content. I decided to use less processed foods to bring down our sodium intake. Slowly but surely I feel like I've improved our diet. We currently buy about 50% organic, but I'm hoping with my newest saving strategies, we can up that amount by even more.
I love this blog concept because we all come from different perspectives. All our priorities are different and our views, budget, and needs vary. I feel like we are constantly learning and improving. I'm glad you have joined us here and I hope you'll feel welcome to comment as well as give us ideas!
