As you know one of my food goals for 2010 is to reduce the amount of processed foods our family consumes. We aren’t anywhere close to eliminating those items, but I am encouraged that we are making improvements.
A few months ago I read In Defense of Food and it has been very thought provoking. I’ve dabbled in “real food” here and there, often because it just tastes better and I am, after all, a food snob. But the more I read (which isn’t a ton), the more I’m convinced that going back to the basics is the way to go for our family.
My friend Stephanie recently launched a real food on a real budget kind of blog. Anyone who makes even the smallest effort to eat healthier foods know that they can be extremely expensive. Saving Naturally is a site where Stephanie shares how you can eat real food and save money in the process. She regularly posts deals and coupons that relate to healthier foods.
Recently she wrote about how much she really spends on groceries. It was helpful to me in understanding how we could go whole hog and still stay in the black.
