So we lasted a total of 6 days on GAPS Intro. We knew from the beginning that it was possible we wouldn’t be able to do the entire Intro process so our back up plan was to do Intro as best we could and then go into full GAPS. Last night we determined it was […]
I wanted to have a record of how GAPS Introduction progressed for us. I think it would be helpful for me to have something to look back on and also for others considering doing GAPS Intro. But I don’t want to have GAPS posts completely take over the blog. I’ve decided to keep a running […]
Don’t you love taking a peek into the life of someone else? If you said yes, I’d say you are not alone. Just take a look at all of the ‘reality’ shows on TV (okay, I have to say I don’t really think those are ‘reality’ but hey, that is how they are marketed).
This is the most recent installment to the series Someone Else’s Shoes. Real Food Hits the Road— that’s what my family is attempting. The desire is to eat our normal 85% real food way while living out of hotel/motel rooms for the next 2+ weeks.
Planning for this trip began last summer while we were […]
I received word late Friday night that the Wyoming Department of Agriculture is attempting to prohibit cow and goat shares in Wyoming. They are attempting to add rules and regulations which have the effect of law unless we stop them.

We started our real food journey in January of 2009 after reading Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon and Mary Enig. I’ve have mentioned several times (so much that I probably sound like a broken record) that we made changes very slowly in order to accommodate our budget and to make lasting changes.
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. […]
For the past several weeks we’ve had a book club of sorts discussing the book Nutrition and Physical Degeneration by Dr. Weston Price. Dr. Weston A. Price was a dentist who travelled the world in the 1930’s and studied peoples diet and how this diet corresponded with their dental and overall health.
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. […]
Something I’ve been thinking alot about lately is Self Care.
I get pretty busy and forget about tending to my own personal needs in the process. I’m sure that I’m not the only one who does this! This can be extremely detrimental. I’m sure we’ve all heard the phrase “if mama ain’t happy, no one […]
