>We try to eat Real Food. What does that mean to me? Our foods should be whole, unprocessed and nutrient dense. We still have a long ways to go before we are eating an optimum Real Food diet. With the New Year fast approaching it seems like a good time to buckle down in our quest for improving our eating especially after the our ‘falling off the wagon’ in the days leading up to Christmas. My husband works at a school and almost daily he brought home ‘treats’ that he was given. Kim, The Nourishing Cook, has a list of dietary guidelines from the Weston A. Price Foundation and we plan to make a concentrated effort to follow these guidelines and do it on a rather small food budget.

Last week I had some issues sticking with my planned menu. My daughter and her husband had car problems (they live with us) and that threw me off my schedule since I was taxi part of the time. And then it snowed- alot. That left me without having a car to drive (my car does not do well in snow) and we were down to one 4 wheel drive truck for 4 adults. It worked out okay but I ended up planning some quicker meals to accommodate the changes. Which means that some things will show up again on this weeks menu. Our favorite meal from last week was Christmas Dinner, of course. The highlight of the meal was grass fed steaks pan-seared and oven finished. OH MY! They were beyond amazing.
