Here are my meager attempts...
Monday: pick up raw milk & produce (& a few other items) at the farm stand
Tuesday: drive to natural foods store and buy bottled kombucha for the week (*Need to finally take the plunge and order a starter, as I've gotten my husband hooked on this too and it's now a $30 a week habit!*) also some whole milk yogurt, kefir & cream. Sometimes we make our own butter using a mason jar and a couple marbles and about twenty minutes of shaking. My daughter's American Girl cookbook had the instructions in it.
She likes to drink the buttermilk too, which I never would have guessed.
Once a month: stock up on other pantry and meat items at Trader Joe's. Although this time I was displeased because they had no grass-fed beef at all.
This year we are planning on buying a quarter beef from somewhere.
Also this month: go to first WAP chapter meeting, make connections with other NT'ers IN REAL LIFE! How shocking!
I am lucky in that this particular local chapter seems to be focussing on meal planning for families with young children. (Other chapters seem to cater to single urbanites.) They are even putting together a family cookbook with emphasis on quick meals.
Couple times a week: make oatmeal in the crockpot overnight. Other days we have eggs or I microwave malt-o-meal (eek.).
Tried making the "Essene crackers," what a disaster. Totally inedible.
Made turkey and turkey stock according to NT at Thanksgiving. Great, but a lot of work. Haven't tried it again. Have five chickens and a turkey in my freezer waiting for me to get brave. (I hate handling meat and I've never been a vegetarian, so I can't blame it on that.)
I have not got the idea of how to make a week's worth of meals in an NT fashion at all. I can get one meal out of about four, but that means seventy-five percent of our diet is still leaning heavily on convenience and processed package foods.
Thank you for starting this thread....
