My 2.5 year old has cavities so I read Cure Tooth Decay and purchased Nourishing Traditions. That was a few months ago. Was really excited to get started...
My fermented carrots were horrible. Had no idea if my whey was edible. Homemade butter tasted awful. Bought bone broth from a local farmer because I was too squeamish to make it myself and boy was it REALLY chickehy!!!
Essentially, I'm a terrible cook and need help. I feel so overwhelmed with my Nourishing Traditions cookbook and failure at attempting to make things in it, that I don't even know what to do to try to continue. After having so many flops I've lost my gumption to continue trying to make new foods. Now perhaps everything I made was fine and tasted the way it did because it was supposed to but I have nothing to compare it to, so I erred on the side of caution and didn't attempt to feed bad-tasting and potentially unsafe food to my family.
So how do I proceed??
I even contacted my local Weston Price affiliate, and though she's very nice, wasn't very helpful. I REALLY love the philosophy behind Weston Price but need serious guidance.
This is what we currently do:
We drink raw milk and cream, make ice cream, use Kerrygold butter and once in awhile use bone broth, but should use it more often (and need to learn how to make it taste good). I have kefir grains in the fridge with directions on how to use them but I'm afraid of wasting them if I do it wrong. Ditto with the creme fraiche and sour cream grains I have in the freezer. Failure gets expensive!
We also have two different flavors of Green Pastures fclo/butter blend -- no dice, son won't eat it unless it's in a smoothie with TWO spoonfuls of honey, which I would assume counteracts the benefits of the fclo.
For breakfast, we eat free range eggs or french toast on sprouted bread -- both with raw cream and lots of butter.
For lunch -- I have no ideas for lunch. We usually eat fruit and Stonyfield yogurt.
For dinner, we eat chicken, sweet potatoes, and frozen organic broccoli -- EVERY NIGHT!
Is there anyone out there who can help (or direct) a completely undomesticated new mommy who wants to help remineralize her sons teeth?
If so, a HUGE thank you in advance!!
