"Where do I begin when I want to feed my family healthy food?"

That was the question I asked myself when I started researching real food. Between knowing what real food was (and wasn't), staying within the budget AND cooking meals that my family enjoyed, I was overwhelmed and ready to quit before I even began.

Then I took a deep breath and thought of just one thing I could do today that would make a difference. 

I did the same thing the next day... and the next day, and 22 days later, I was more confident about the goals I set for my family and how we were going to achieve them.

Here on the Crumbs blog you'll find simple, practical ways to feed your family real food and live a healthier lifestyle, without going broke in the process.

I’ve walked the journey to real food and natural living over the last few years. Along the way I’ve learned a lot about what healthy eating really is and how to live a simple, natural lifestyle.

While I don't consider myself skilled in a lot of things, I do have a great deal of experience when it comes to eating real food on a budget. So much so, that I've written a few eBooks for those who need the extra help or who just want to learn more about a specific topic.
