Our eating habits have been completely transformed.
We have gone from eating fast food to cooking almost every meal.
We’ve gone from edible food-like substances to real, whole food.
I can pronounce every single ingredient.
There is hardly anything in my house that my great-grandmother wouldn’t recognise as food.
We eat vegetables at last. And whole grains. And a lot less meat.
My children are eating better and we all have more energy.
We are even starting our own garden.
It has not been a particularly easy road. There has been the occasional cheat – Cadbury’s Dairy Milk chocolate bars are my undoing! – but overall, we’ve been very consistent. I’ve learned so much….and still have so much to learn.
This week, I’ll be summarising everything from budget to convenience to weight loss as it relates to our journey of eating fresh, local, organic, sustainable food.
Tuesday: Physical/body changes and Budget (also known as “how do I do this without going broke?”)
Wednesday: Time and Convenience – Making it work for your schedule
Friday: Where do we go from here as a family? And the spiritual aspects of eating (because you know me – I find Jesus everywhere, even in my food. Can’t help it!)
And a fun giveaway, of course.
What’s the fun of ending this whole thing without giving something away?
I’ll be giving away three prizes to three readers! So spread the word and enter to win:
Simply leave a comment related to the whole food challenge (a favourite recipe? favourite cookbook? writing about it on your blog? any changes you’ve made over the past 12 weeks? got a question? think I’m nuts?) and you’ll be entered. Only shipping addresses in Canada and the USA, please.
I’ll draw the winner randomly on Saturday night and post the winner shortly afterwards with the final round up post.
EDITED TO ADD: The contest is over now. No further comments will be entered to win. Thanks! (2 May 2010)
