Trying Organic

Blogger is screwing with my dashboard.  I can't see all of your blogs.  I'm trying to follow on my phone but I won't be able to comment much.  It's kind of hard to comment from my phone.  Oh well, it's all just small stuff. :0)

The heat and humidity have been pretty bad here for the last week.  I'm hoping it cools off so that I can get in the garden without getting up tooooo early.  I like early morning, but, come one, I have my limits.  hehehe.  I'm guess I AM gonna have to start getting up earlier.  That means getting to bed sooner too.  That's fine with me.  I'm not a big night owl.  Although the people I live with (Hubby and Country Girl) are.  Once again, just small stuff.I can't believe how much my out look on life has changed.  Little things don't bother me as much as they use too.  Maybe this health scare was a blessing in disguise.

 After all of this,we have been trying to eat better. Did you realize HOW MANY cookouts happen in summer time? :0)  We are trying though.  Right now, all we can do is eat what little bit we do have canned/frozen from last year's garden.  We still have a small amount of our beef left in the freezer too, but it's getting on the low side.

We have been trying to stay off wheat for a while but it's not going real good.  I thought about trying organic wheat and sugar.  We like our breads and tortillas around here.  If I start making them myself, I'll want to make them with organic flours.  Maybe it's more of the Roundup and such that is causing Hubby's problems.  We'll just have to try different things and see.  It's going to be an interesting time.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Wow! That was a rambling post!!!

So until next time,

Small Farm Girl, going organic

I am not an expert but I think in todays world organic is all hype and not really organic. I think if you just try to eat healthier and all things in moderation youll all feel much better. And water is really under-rated. I found out how much our bowels rely on it to keep things going when I got sick. We go thru gallons here now a day.

You could be on to something about the pesticides on our food. I can not eat store bought fruit, esp berries, but if it is grown in my yard, or the farm up the road, I have no issues (neither of us spray anything). It could be a chemical thing, it could be a time of picking thing, I'm not sure. The closer to home we eat, the better we feel though.

Do you have a good bread machine ( besides yourself ) that might help aide in the transition over to the organic side. Get comfie and loving the bread that you can crank out, and the store bought stuff will taste like nothing but fluffed air. Good luck! This should be a fun journey!

I think they are trying to fix it. I wished they would hurry.

Hubby is really drinking the water!! We shall see if it works.

I'm actually looking forward to doing this!!! I know people who have done it and a lot of their problems have went away. We shall hope!

I absolutely believe that Round-Up and the screwing around with our plants & animals in labs have brought on 90% of our country's health problems.
One of the first things that we've been told when family members are diagnosed with cancer, is to start eating organic, asap. Last year, we were already buying organic when it was available in our stores. However, after having my own 'breasts have cancer cells now involved' issue, we went almost entirely organic last spring. Not only have all of us never felt better, but the few times we've had non-organic foods (brownies that an aunt made & Pizza Hut cheese pizza on a road trip, or instance), we had A. the runs for days & 2. we couldn't believe how much it tasted like plastic!! You just can't go from REAL food, back to chemically-dependent foods.
