Take a Sneak Peek

Here is a sneak peek of some of the things we purchased; I spy with my little eye some bacon, ravioli, and pastured-chicken:

Coffee and BroccoliniHow about some organic carrots, avocado, and broccoli (<- roast in some avocado oil, salt, and pepper in the oven = yum)!?

    I enjoyed your video Katie and Mark and my husband and I are with Mark when it comes to that coconut water *blech* and we both really enjoy licorice root.
    Fortunately we have a huge garden so most of my produce comes straight from the dirt to the house, though I do eat plenty of it when I pick stuff, especially the green beans and cherry tomatoes. (I try not to think of bird pee on it) I also do heaps of home canning, which I enjoy doing immensely. I love knowing that there are no chemicals in our food and I personally touched every item we eat, whilst having happy thoughts as I prepare it. (this matters) For the more gourmet items I usually rely on Amazon to buy things in bulk and freeze them when it is permissible.
    I use chia seeds a LOT and I think you will enjoy using them, you can sprinkle them on just about anything and because I buy them in bulk, I freeze them with no worries. I plan to make some kind of fruit jam in the next week or so using the chia seeds.
    We live in the country so we are also close to a few farmers where we get our eggs and a lot of our meat and the animals are free to roam. One thing we do seem to buy a lot of though is cheese, but this is Wisconsin so… =)
    BE WELL. ♥
