Saturday's in our family are pretty busy. It's basically the day we get up early and go to the farmer's market and go to get milk if the folks we buy it from aren't at the market. We also go the the grocery store and healthy foods store to get the rest of our rations for the week. While there, I also buy the fixings for my dog, Athena's food and vegetables for the chickens and rabbit. Later, I cook Athena's food (yes, that's what I said but we'll talk about that another time) and chop and divide the other animals' food.
I LOVE Saturday's! I love the farmers market and the folks who sell our delicious goods to us. I love that Leo yells "buffalo stick!" every time he sees the nice lady we buy our buffalo meats from and she gives him a free two-pack of buffalo jerky sticks in exchange for a hug:) I love tasting foods with robust earthy flavor. I love taking Leo to the milk farm so he can see exactly where his milk came from and know it was just made that morning. I love selecting all the ingredients for a new Food Renegade recipe I'm going to try. I love knowing that the products I'm deciding to buy are not going to affect my family negatively and will actually help our bodies and minds. I love knowing I'm making a real effort to fight against diseases like diabetes, cancer, etc. I gotta tell ya, I love my Saturday shopping experience just as much, if not more, than a shopping spree at the mall. You'll hear me talk MUCH more about this, but for now all I can say is that this re-alignment of priorities when it comes to my families nutrition has changed my life completely! It's a change for the good and I wouldn't go back in a million years. Although there are so many facts and statistics I could give you to back up what I'm trying to say, the simple truth is my taste buds and the way I feel since making changes toward healthier eating are what made up my mind. Try it for yourself, you'll be hooked!...and don't forget your re-usable bags;)
