Hi I am looking for a wholesome diet. Something that fits our family and is healthy! We are in the process of changing everything about the way we live. Ive read so much YUCKY stuff over the last month about everything..Im in for the change. We are mainly a fast foods, quick meals at home type of family. I can most definatley cook by scratch and bake and do all that stuff but I grew up on junk so it tastes good,,,LOL! After reading all the articles about how certain foods are bad for you..like really bad for you..I just want to change the way we eat. I have 7 children..pregnant with my 8th and I HATE that I actually loaded garbage into my kids mouths. I was on my own little diet one time of just fruits and veggies and I felt amazing. I lost like 30 lbs right off the bat..but then got pregnant and their went my diet. Although I dont think a diet of just fruit and veggies would have lasted me very long anyways because there were supplements or anything and Im almost positive I wasnt getting all my vitamins.
Anyways..back to the story. Im not really sure what Treditional food is. Is it baking from scratch or is it a special diet. Im just researching what I want right now and dont really know where to look. Im not even sure what I want or whats good for us and whats not. I read alot of articles about meat and animal protien and how it wasnt good for us. And read and watched a documentary about how animal protien can cause cancer. That makes me so sick to my stomach (PUKE) but in another thread...some mamas didnt agree. So...Im not sure which way to go? Any help would be awesome! Where to start? How to make changes. We are running out of food here so Ill be making a huge shopping trip within the next week and really need some info by then so I can buy right stuff! I also need some help with meal planning. Any websites to reccomend I could read would be great too. I hope this thread makes sense....LOL! I wrote it while kids are screaming in my ear and fighting...Thanks everyone
