"I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food."
So, after returning from shopping, I was washing our produce and was struck by how pretty it looked. What beautiful fruits and veggies our God has given us. Thank-you, Father God, for such an abundance of good things to eat!
We are really enjoying our new healthy eating habits. Shopping is so much simpler. I don't even buy anything in a box, and only organic tomatoes in a can....we just circle the store and hit the produce, meats & dairy, then dart in to the paper goods, cleaners, grains & baking supplies, simple! I highly recommend reading about how to make the most of the grocery store on http://www.keeperofthehome.org/nutritional-foundations/
One of our favorite things to have is a Super Smoothie. We make them every morning and sometimes again for an afternoon snack. What a great way to get spinach into us without the usual hairy eyeballs from the kids. ;-) This is why I want to try making my own kefir. The health benefits of the live cultured milk are amazing and it makes the smoothies so yummy. Now, if I could just keep strawberries in the house we would be all set. Do you have any idea how many strawberries 3 kids can put away? It's mind boggling.
