Stocking Up

It has been a very busy past few days. I have been stocking up on our food supplies. With a trip to Earth Fare (our local "healthy supermarket"), a normal grocery store run, another produce box, picking up our grass-fed cow portion, and picking up our pastured poultry today, our freezer and refrigerator are FULL!

It is a good thing we have a "bulk food" budget or this would blow our monthly grocery allotment in just a few days!

I am so thankful to have all of this high-quality, healthy food at our fingertips. Finding all of these resources didn't happen overnight though. It took time to network with people and to find the best sources for the lowest prices. I have always kept my ears open for possibilities. Over time, this has paid off.

What about you? Are you able to bring home foods that would truly nourish your body? Are you still looking for resources? Or are you needing to cut back on your grocery budget to allow some room for bigger purchases? I encourage you to think outside the "grocery store box." Most of the healthiest foods are not found in the supermarket aisles. If you haven't yet found the right food sources, don't give up. Keep up your search. You'll find what you're looking for!

On another note: I have a big surprise up my sleeve! I can't wait to show you! I have a few thoughts for posts this week... but what do you want to read about? Please comment to request any topic or ask your questions. This is a good week for it!

you mentioned a while back about posting some ideas about patio gardening and how it can be helpful to your budget and healthful to your family! I'm working on a garden this year, its the first year I've felt I had the time, space or energy!

I'd love to see something on healthy insect repellents. We do a lot of gardening and camping and the mosquitos are maddening!
