I was raised by a momma who routinely fed us things like raw milk, homemade bread and yogurt, liver and granola. And my dad gardened and had beehives in our back yard. Truthfully, I wasn’t always a fan of my parents’ healthy-eating practices as a kid– the liver just about finished me off, and I really loved Cap’n Crunch. But in college I found nutrition class interesting enough that I wondered briefly about becoming a nutritionist myself.
John and I have always gardened, which automatically boosted our family nutrition, even during the years that I served lots and lots of pasta. Lately I’ve been reading lots more about nutrition, am getting more healthy fats in our diet, and am gradually edging towards paleo-style eating. A true paleo diet is basically plants and meat, with no grains. I aim for lots of plants, eggs, and meat, with just a dab of rice, barley, or non-wheat bread here and there. My family still does wheat, but I’m trying to make it a smaller portion of their diet.
Here are some of the healthy-eating bloggers I’ve found most helpful and most inspirational lately.
