Recently, Jenny and I have been trying to find ways to eat healthier. We’ve been buying only cage-free, vegetarian-fed chicken eggs, trying to learn about and use spices that are healthy for you in what we cook, switching to only whole grain products, juicing fruit and vegetables, eating raw vegetables, cutting fat, sugars, not eating fast food, not buying or eating prepackaged foods….etc, etc.
I recently have been introduced (by Lisa) to a local farmer who sells fresh yard eggs (organic, no hormones and whose chickens certainly do NOT eat meat by-products), raw milk (straight from the cow – no hormones added), cheese made from raw milk and cheeses made from the actual milk and not the whey, local honey (good for allergies).
We have a long way to go in our research and healthy eating habits, but we have certainly made a great start! The next step is getting our garden boxes up and running and maybe getting our own cow and chickens 😛
