Changes. . .

This is how/why I can believe in evolution as a Catholic Christian. . . I’m constantly evolving and I’m convinced we aren’t the same humans as Adam & Eve.  Life happens.  Society happens.  Ideas arise and fall.  Life evolves. Right now, I’m going backward again.  For a while I was pretty strict purist Paleo- no […]

School’s Out- What Do I Feed These Kids???

When the kids are home, they want to eat ALL THE TIME.  Seriously, you’d think they were starving.  In reality I think it’s more boredom than anything.  We are limited in the amount of out and about time we can have since I run a childcare from my home and taking 16 kids on outings […]

Paleo, Pregnancy, Gallbladder, & Kidney Stones?

Seriously people.  I’m 25.5 weeks pregnant and something is going on.   At first glance, we thought I had a bladder infection so I went in for a quick UA.  The initial report was lots of blood, not much bacteria.  Huh. . . well, let’s start an antibiotic over the weekend while it goes off for […]

Monthly Menu

Now. . . if I get really crazy, I will prep some meals for the freezer.  I’ll get back to y’all on that. 🙂 In our budget post, I indicated that meal plans were on the way. So- our meat for the month is 30lbs of beef (ground, steak, stew, roast, oxtail), 4 whole chickens, […]

100 Days of Real Food- Grocery Budget

Technically, I think our 100 days is over or probably close, but who knows since I’ve lost track.  The reality is, we always eat real food with minor deviations for special occasions, so this is more about budget than anything else in our world.  Tonight, I came up with a “plan”.  This keeps us at […]

The Plan & Day 48

Really. . . today is day 48.  I’m a slacker.  I also haven’t done great budget wise (as in I didn’t keep track).  A new month is around the bend and I vow to pull my grocery money out and NOT use my debit card.  That way I have more accountability. I am getting better […]

Day 27 and Where Has my Budget Gone?

I’ve been busy. . . sorry for the silence around here. 🙂 I ordered 30 lbs of local, grassfed beef to the tune of $170 and it will arrive this Tuesday with my produce co-op.  Last week, I only spent $30 on produce ($25 co-op box + $5.00 needy donation). Here’s the haul minus a […]

Paleo Easter, Day 19

This weeks organic produce from the co-op.  I spent $60, which included a donation toward a family box for a co-op member that couldn’t afford a box this week.  I spent another $5.00 at pick up adding on more oranges. Remember that carrot craving I was having. . . well, I bought six pounds. . […]
