Adoption journey

Over the past year, the Lord has been growing, teaching, and challenging our family in so many ways! We are responding to the Lord's leading and are expanding our family through the adoption of a precious baby!

Eating Clean on a Budget: Intro

Most of our friends know that we eat a kind of "crazy" real food/paleo diet. While, I've always enjoyed cooking meals from scratch, our family's food intolerances has taken cooking from scratch to a whole new level! As my 9 year old says, "we eat only things that grow in the ground or animals" and that is completely accurate! We eat meats, vegetables, fruits, seeds, beans and nuts. We eat little to no processed foods, grains, dairy or soy. Feeding a family of six, with four growing boys, without breaking the bank, is quite challenging!!

I wrote another blog on where we source our food, but it has changed slightly since moving to South Carolina. We order from, Vitacost and Amazon Prime. Our family typically shops at Aldi, Sam's Club, and go to the Soda City Farmer's Market for goat milk, eggs, meat and vegetables. We get lots of stares at the farmer's market as we parade down the street with our collapsible wagon full of 5 gallons of goat milk, 3 overflowing boxes of produce, 8 dozen eggs and meat! We eat a lot of food and are quite a sight!!

This series will share breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack and drink recipes from our home! I hope these recipes hope your family eat clean while keeping a budget!
