When we first started switching over to a whole foods diet, I was SO incredibly overwhelmed. People were talking about fermented this, soaked that and honestly, I lost in the terminology. Forget implementing anything new – I had no clue what they were even talking about!
As if being utterly clueless wasn’t enough, there’s a guilt trip. I know many of you can relate – that feeling of being looked down upon because you don’t brew kombucha or your eggs don’t come from the chickens in your own backyard? Yep, that’s the one.
The same can be said for eating real food within a budget. For my family, a budget is $330 each month. But that doesn’t mean YOU have to have the same budget!
Some of you are feeding twice as many mouths, are dealing with incredibly specific particular food allergies or live where food is very expensive. I would never expect you guys to have the same budget as we do!
Each week, newsletter subscribers get my personal response to a specific challenge a reader is facing. In order to offer a better, more well-rounded answer, I sometimes as you guys what your thoughts are on the topic too. Several weeks ago we addressed the issue of eating well within a budget, and I was curious what that meant to YOU.
I’ve compiled some of your responses, in an effort for you guys to see that there is no one perfect response to eating healthy or eating real food. We come from different backgrounds and face different circumstances, but we can all work towards the same goal – at our own pace, and in our own unique way!

Hello again, Crumbs readers!
Last month, when I shared my favorite homemade coconut cream popsicles recipe, I was overwhelmed by all the commenting, sharing, and pinning that followed. Thanks for that warm welcome! I hope some of you made the popsicles and enjoyed them as much as my family does!
Well, today I’m back with another recipe (three recipes, actually) that I hope you’ll love as well - easy homemade applesauce in plain, cinnamon, and mixed berry flavors.
