While this blog is often a forum for my love for my littles, it’s also a vehicle to share things about which I am very passionate. Some of these topics include marriage, fighting pornography, ending abortion…and getting back to the basics. Yep. Getting back to the basics. It is my desire to (continue to) take my family to a more natural way of living. Over the past few years, I have learned a lot. I’ve learned so much about what’s in many of the foods we eat, the products we use, the things we buy. I’ve realized I was being a poor steward of the body God has given me. One of my favorite phrases is “if you know better, do better.” So, that’s what I’m doing. Slowly, but surely, I’m changing the way we do things.
In our western culture, we daily (sometimes hourly!) put into our bodies foods we have no idea from where they came. This is evidenced by the skyrocketing numbers of Americans who are getting sicker…not better. Did you know many of the illnesses and things we struggle with today are a result of foods we ate yesterday? Things like celiac disease, infertility, food allergies and diabetes are only a few of the symptoms of a far greater issue: what we eat is making us sick. If you’ve never watched a documentary, watch this one. It is so very well done and a really great use of your time today. It’s also only available to watch for free for the next couple of days so don’t put it off!* If you have watched documentaries before, you’ll love this one. I so appreciated how easy the science was to understand and the depth to which they went to help the everyday consumer (us moms!!!) follow along.
