    Thank you so much for the encouragment! My husband and I are approaching 70 and only know processed and white flour, sugar and convenience. It’s overwhelming just remembering where the information is. lol
    Our pasture fed meats and organic vegetables are quite expensive here especially since wer are on a very limited/fixed income, but I’m starting, and with all the help you and the other wonderful ladies offer I know we will prevail.
    Just an example…I cut out TP for family cloth and can now afford cod liver oil and some grass fed beef bones! YAY! 🙂 (Chicken Bone Broth in the crockpot right now, too!)
    thank you again!

    • How wonderful! I’m so glad to hear about the progress you’re making and I love that you took the time to let me know about it. You’re doing great- just one little change at a time will get you there sooner than you’d think.

      Blessings! 🙂

  2. I’m definitely new to real food (traditional) eating. It’s been just about a month for us. So far we’ve cleared about 90% of the processed stuff (canned soups and broths, mostly… but oh so sad to see the Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce go) from the pantry, bone broth is in our fridge and freezer at all times, and we have visited the farm where we’ll get our grass-fed beef and poultry (will have to invest in a chest freezer so we can save by buying in bulk), and I’m trying to figure out how to get our hands on raw milk. It’s a start! This post is so encouraging for a newbie!

    • You made my day, Pam!! I’m so glad that you are finding encouraging and helpful information. It sounds like you’re doing a fantastic job on getting switched over- and a fast job of it, too. 😉
