I just want to encourage you to make changes slowly. It is very overwhelming. It is taking me 18 months to get to where I am doing all this stuff. I would switch what you already eat. For example--when you run out of bread then start buying sprouted bread (good price at Trader Joes). Dairy products--start buying butter, buy some plain whole milk yogurt, find some raw milk. I think these should help with the digestion issues too. Locate some kefir grains to start fermenting the milk to further heal digestion..I think 2 c of 24 hour fermemnted kefir has 5 TRIllion becteria. Way more than any pill and cheaper! Start finding some good eggs. Keep things simple. I focus on buying the best animal products I can afford starting with dairy (which is the most important thing to buy organic IMO). I don't buy organic produce unless it is very reasonably priced that day.
We are here to help too. Head over to Traditonal foods for food questions as well.
So about bread: I do have a grain mill and have been wondering what people mean when they say to soak your grains. Can someone give me instructions for what kind of grain to get for making bread, and then how to soak it? Is there a special recipe I need to use to make the bread? We don't have Trader Joe's in our area : I'm sure they have sprouted bread at Whole Foods but probably not at a price I want to pay. Can I make my own sprouted bread?
I do buy butter...and we eat whole milk plain yogurt (except when we're doing dairy elimination, like now for example). I was thinking about making my own yogurt, but wasn't quite ready to go the raw milk route just yet. Would homemade yogurt made from pasteurized whole milk still be better than commercial whole milk yogurt?
Kefir...I guess I need to go reread NT about that. I still have no idea what it is.
Yah...looks like I need to start frequenting the NT thread as well LOL!
