“I’d like to begin eating healthy, but I really have no idea where to start. Help!”
My inbox is full of emails stating this or something similar. So many of you are interested in feeding your families a diet of real, whole food. With all the “healthy food” information out there, much of it contradictory, where do you even start? It’s overwhelming, and it’s life changing. Some even feel like the changes are so huge, it’s not even worth the effort!
I remember the feelings so very well. Seven years ago when we started our own Healthy Eating Journey, I knew my family needed to stop eating so many processed foods. But all of the information I read about switching over to whole foods had my head spinning. And then I started reading that not only did I need to eat more vegetables, but they needed to all be organic. And fermented. And our meat needed to be grass fed. And our milk needed to be raw. And our….
It was all too much. Not only did I feel like throwing in the towel, I felt like burning the towel and stomping on the ashes. (Yes, an adult-sized temper tantrum. Sounds pretty, huh?)
Frustrated or not, I knew that my family needed to make healthy changes. So what was I to do?
I prayed. I researched. I wrestled. I experimented. I worked. I asked others for help.
And guess what? Over the last few years, I have figured out that not only does creating and maintaining a Real Food Kitchen not have to be difficult, it’s actually quite fun. And the food tastes amazing and is very easy to prepare!
I am excited to share that over the last few months, I have been developing what I hope will keep you all from experiencing so much of the same frustration that I did when we first began our healthy eating journey.
This eCourse will take you through five simple and practical lessons that can be tailor made for your lifestyle and needs. And guess what? We won’t even touch on buying organic or grass fed food! I mean, you can go there during this eCourse if you want to and if you’re ready, but when I say “the first five steps”, I’m really talking about the first five steps.
What’s even better? Your first five steps don’t have to look like someone else’s first five steps. They can look the way they need to look for YOUR family! Yay! By the time you’ve completed the five lessons in this eCourse, you will be well on your way to a Real Food Kitchen, all while making painless and uncomplicated changes. And did I mention that real food is delicious? :)
We are working hard to put the finishing touches on this eCourse to have it ready to launch in January. You’ll need no special equipment to be a part of this class. You can work on it during any time of the day or night that works for you. You can finish it in one week, in one year, or in whatever time frame you need. You can do it in your pajamas. You can do it while standing on your head. (And if you do, please take a picture and send it to me.)
And best of all? It will only cost you $5 for the entire course. We want everyone to have a chance to participate. And we want everyone to know that when it comes to eating a healthy diet – YOU CAN DO IT!
Be watching for more information about this eCourse and others that we will be completing and featuring in 2013.
As we finalize our lessons, I’d really love to hear from you – What is your biggest challenge when it comes to creating a Real Food Kitchen?
