Nutrition and the Start of 2012...

Inspired by Abbie who is a Farmer’sDaughter, I too am focusing on cleaning out our kitchen cupboards and refrigerator of faux foods and reevaluating the wholesome simplicity of the foods we put into our bodies.
The first thing we as a family need to do is take it one day at a time. Therefore, today and because of PatriciaMoreno’s encouragment, we are choosing to stay away from anything with refined sugar in it. Through the Christmas season, we indulged in chocolates and cookies and fruit cake and now our body is asking for this. It takes time for a body to quit asking and we will take it one day at a time.
From eggs and sprouted grain bread with creamery butter, to porridge with strawberries and cinnamon to help satisfy our tastes this morning, we will now enjoy a dinner of baked halibut with lemon, tomatoes, garlic and basil accompanied with risotto, butternut squash with a squeeze of orange, steamed broccoli and cawliflower and a mix of fresh greens. Planning simple savory meals is something I love to do and hopefully this will help all of us to continue on with our intentions for 2012.
Here are a few links that I will build on in order to remind me of what I truly believe. I hope they will also assist you in eating simply:
