Hmm, making my own sounds good (and cheap!). I'll do some experimenting i think! Thanks for the suggestion.
Jane - did you say the D word?? This is the hardest part for me to wrap my head around actually. We've gotten so used to our carb-laden meals that i'm dreading changing it. My kids are quite picky, and would seriously eat honey toast for every meal.
Any tips on how to change things with ease?
We already do lots of bone broth - using it in soups, stews and risotto. But the kids will only eat it in stew. Can i add liver to the stew, or does it need to be raw? We never eat organ meats, and i'm pretty sure nobody is going to try them unless i don't tell them it's in there!
I've finally found a source for raw milk
so we're going through about 10L a week between the 4 of us. Also just found someone with kefir grains, so will try making that next week. I'm having a hard time finding pastured butter though...
I guess the trouble is getting the good stuff into the kids. I eat lots of organic eggs, but DD won't touch them. At all. Not even in smoothies. I know i have to stop giving them so much bread, but they just won't eat otherwise.
Any tips about this would be soooo appreciated!
