For anyone that knows me, they know that I was the most limited, picky eater in the world. My husband eats any and everything. We would fight for hours about where to go out to dinner, usually it ending in us not going anywhere. My husband would watch cooking shows like it was "adult entertainment" – I watched it in disgust. Then things changed.
This past summer all of a sudden I wanted to try things I had never had before. I was having cravings for things I had never eaten in my life. I watched cooking shows with excitement and curiosity. My husband insists that it was all him who changed my taste buds. It wasn't. If it was him, it would have happened years ago. This past summer I started taking hormones that made me feel incredible! And as soon as I started taking them, that is when the taste buds changed. So, whatever it is attributed to, I am loving cooking now. I want to keep trying new things and continually improve upon the things I had been making.
We have changed towards organic living. I tried organic eating years ago, but there just wasn't the options that there are now. We have switched over to organic products whenever possible. Of course, there are items that we cannot find in organic, or if they are available, they are just too outrageously expensive, but I will try my best to give my family only hormone and antibiotic free, organic products whenever possible. I believe many of the health problems we are experiencing are due to the garbage chemicals that we have put into our overly processed food supply.
It is our dream to own an organic farm someday. In the meantime, we will do everything possible to live as natural as possible while supporting local suppliers and businesses that buy local. The only way we can take a proactive stance in our health is by controlling what we put in our body. And the only way we can trust what we are consuming is by knowing where our produce, dairy and meat are coming from. This is a journey my family and I are embarking on. We are continuously learning and I hope to share this newfound knowledge with anyone who is interested in living a better life!
