When I first started blogging, at a simple family style blog, we were living in a 23 foot camp trailer in Northern California. The summer before that we had purchased two acres of bare land in Wyoming. Thinking it would take some time for our Oregon coast home to sell we put it on the […]
One thing that has changed in our journey to real food is how we shop. In many ways we completely relearned this shopping skill. This was not something that happened overnight and in some ways it wasn’t completely an easy task.
Before we could relearn our shopping we needed to figure out how best to […]

June Real Food Bundle
This spectacular bundle focused on Real Food is a […]
I’ve noticed a trend lately. There seems to be an overwhelming amount of people with opinions that their way of eating is the only ‘right’ way of eating and everything must be an ‘all or nothing’ approach.
While some people might surely need to follow a very strict style of eating and subscribe to an […]
Now that spring is supposed to be here we seem to be having winter. We have snow on the ground and it is pretty chilly at night time. Some of the days warm up and the snow melts off and we have a lovely muddy mess. We are hopeful that the weather […]

We started our real food journey in January of 2009 after reading Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon and Mary Enig.

This month’s experience for Someone Else’s Shoes is two-fold. The two most common conversations that come up when discussing a diet based on real/whole/traditional foods are the money involved and the time involved.
I believe that we can eat a real food diet based on whole, high quality ingredients for an average amount of money. […]
This eBook is an in-depth look at the 2 week Thrifty Food Plan Experience that my family did in March of 2012. 67 pages of thoughts, tips, and ideas plus a 2 week menu plan, over 40 recipes and links to many more.
This experience was based off of the USDA’s food cost guidelines. […]
Real Food for Less Money is a journal of sorts on how my family continues to transition from a Standard American Diet (SAD) to a real/whole/traditional foods diet (real). Our transition as been slow and steady while trying to keep our budget under control. For the first 24 […]
That is the current experience. We’re starting completely from scratch following the monetary guidelines put out by the USDA for the Cost of Food at Home Thrifty Food Plan. The USDA attaches a weekly dollar amount to each person dependent on age and sex. You […]
