Welcome to my blog...all about my family's efforts toward living as primally and green as possible in the OC. I mostly blog about how I feed my family, from shopping for the food to the pots and pans I cook it all in. I also talk about how my famiy and I try to live as green as possible. But don't hold it against us if you see us driving around town in our big ol' SUV...there are some things we just can't part with (yet)!
So last week we were out of town and I therefore spent my Sunday wondering why we take road trips with small children frolicking in the snow with my family (post regarding staying paleo on the road coming soon :) ).
As some of you know, I spend most of my Sundays preparing food for the week ahead. I love to cook. Although, admittedly, sometimes all this work seems like a chore, the gratifying end result is totally worth all the effort. I love opening the fridge to find all the fresh, yummy, healthy, made-from-scratch food I lovingly made for my family. Plus, those few extra hours in the kitchen pay off when I don't even have to think about most meals and snacks the coming week.
And I thank my husband for supporting and encouraging my efforts :)
So, with all that said, I'm going to post my Sunday kitchen happenings right here. Lately I've been feeling kind of turned-off to blogging - not to other bloggers ( I looooove lurking and visiting other blogs for inspiration :), but for some reason I sometimes feel like "Look at me! I'm sooo special!" But I figured I may take my own efforts for granted sometimes and realized, hey, I am special, and maybe some of my ideas just might inspire others :)
Thank you for visiting my humble little blog, sweet followers :)
* Veggie soup (Nourishing Traditions homemade chicken broth, or lately I've been lazy and have been using Imagine organic free range chicken broth - three boxes, two cloves garlic, one onion, two red bell peppers, five zucchinis, seven carrots, one bunch kale, one bunch spinach, one head cabbage, three sticks celery) (This soup is awesome. For some reason, my whole family loves it and asks for it all the time. It's a great little side to go with lunch or dinner during the week and a great way to get tons of veggies in your kiddos!)
