A New Leaf
The History: I eat awful stuff. I don't really cook. I run a business and homeschool 3 kids and do quite a lot of other things. Although I never knew much about cooking or food, over the years I have gone from bad to worse. These days almost everything comes out of a box, and if it can't be ready in 15 minutes or less, it probably isn't happening. I started looking into healthier food probably about a year ago. My hubby bought a bread maker for me for my birthday this spring that still sits unopened. We have done small things. I started buying ancient grain bread as opposed to our local grocery store brand of 60% whole wheat. I found quinoa and ancient grains at Costco and started eating that quite a bit, although noone else in my family will eat it except my teenage daughter (unlike Mikey, she eats anything). I am drinking more water. In the last couple weeks though, things have taken a dramatic turn. I will tell you about that tomorrow, and we will see where my "wannabe foodie" journey will lead me from here.
