Good Monday Morning Everyone!
Earlier this year I was blessed to have crossed paths with Kelly from The Nourishing Home. She is such a sweet woman and I have the privilege of guest posting for her today.
Nourishing food completely changed her life and she’s often asked a question that we’ve all had at one point in time: “Where do I begin?”
Kelly invited me to share some of my newbie advice for her readers who aren’t quite sure where to start with the whole real food thing. My first response? Baby steps.
And it shouldn’t come as a surprise that when I first started, my stubborn self refused to take my own advice.
Jumping in with both feet, I ventured to the health food store instead of the usual grocery store that week and literally stocked my shopping cart with everything organic! It felt great to take charge of my family’s nutrition and to be so cautious about food we were eating… until the cashier read the total…
And ya’ll know how much I treasure staying within budget!
During the drive home, my mind replayed the purchase and I started to second guess if eating real food is really worth the time, the effort and the money. I considered throwing in the towel on eating real food.
