Here in our household, we’ve started a new way of eating. It’s based on research conducted by Weston A. Price, a dentist who examined the eating habits and health of primitive cultures, and the books we’re using are Nourishing Traditions and Eat Fat, Lose Fat. I’m not going to bore you with the details, I’m just going to tell you how it’s working out so far.
The Ogre is thrilled, because his two favorite food groups, butter and meat, are in liberal abundance.
The children are mutinous, because it means no more cookies, cakes, mac and cheese, or pizza.
I’m tired. I’ve spent the last few days in the kitchen, making broths and stocks and oil mixes, cleaning out our fridge and freezer and cabinets, and chopping loads and loads of vegetables. I feel really, really good about making nutritious food for my family, but not so good about missing out on internet and blogging nonsense for the last few days. I love nonsense. It makes me happy.
Hopefully in the next week I’ll figure out how to maximize the nutritional benefits while minimizing the time spent in the kitchen so I can get back to the really important stuff in life…blogging. Till then, please say a prayer for me as I try to convince my children to eat real food instead of orange powder-coated pasta.
