We are heading to the health food store this morning. I really want to start eating a more traditional diet. What are the basics that I need to pick up? We probably don't have much of anything that we need so I'm a little overwhelmed! What would you start with?<br>
Thanks so much for your help!

Start small...first of all and try to convert some of you usual recipes to NT. Like start soaking grains.<br>
I would start with making some bone broth and maybe one or two fermented veggies. You might pick up a bottle of kombucha at the hfs, just to get a taste, if you like it you can start brewing it yourself some time.<br><br><br>

I am just getting started too and still have lots to learn. One thing that I found easy to do is to switch from vegetable oils like canola to more traditional fats for cooking and baking. Beef and chicken fat, lard, olive oil and especially butter. I haven't touched the margerine in the back of my fridge for weeks! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

We're still just dabbling in TF, and with DH being a vegetarian it's bit difficult to meal plan, but we started by soaking grains/legumes as it was very easy and something we knew how to do. Then I moved on to adding some good fats to our diet like grass-fed butter, unrefined olive and coconut oils. I also started including some fermented foods like pickled beets, yogurt and kefir.<br><br>
At the store, just try picking up some quality fats, vegetables and whole grains/legumes and move on from there.
