Today is the day! We start back on the road to health and that means making sure we are eating more traditional foods and less processed foods for the family. I am taking small slow steps this time around to hopefully make it a permanent change for the family this time around.
I plan to get rid of all the prepackaged side dishes that I have been using the past couple of months. I know I can make things that are better for us without all of those preservatives and additives. I will spend today doing the research for some ideas. One thing I will be doing is hauling out the Make-a-Mix book I have on top of the fridge. I will be looking through it to find homemade alternatives for the family favorites.
Once I have the favorites found, I need to make a shopping list of the items I need for the mixes. After the list is done, I will call my friend who works for the McCormick Spice Company and set a date to go at the employee store. I figure I will probably buy them out. Once I have all of ingredients in the house, we will have a mix making day for homeschool (is is math you know).
Our road back to traditional foods and more healthy eating so far includes Meatless Mondays, Fishy Fridays and homemade side dishes.
What steps are you making to move your family toward a healthier lifestyle?
