food...food...food


Poor blog. How I've neglected you.

Lately I feel like I am living, breathing, dreaming FOOD. We've been making some food changes that make me question my sanity. We've been cutting out ALL processed foods (and not just what I used to consider "processed" when I used to say we ate very little processed foods, but all actual processed foods...). Which means I am either in the kitchen or thinking about and planning what I will next make in the kitchen for roughly 16 hours every day... Some of my experiences and recipes will surely make an appearance in the blog in the future, as I try to make sense of what I'm doing and what works and what doesn't...

When I'm not doing kitchen-prep stuff, I feel completely drained. I feel sapped of all energy and motivation to do anything except sit around and feel tired. Not really sure what's going on, but I'm having a hard time of it.

Anyway...it's Friday today and I need to get my house clean, laundry done, food-related stuff planned and started (need to pick up eggs today and start soaking flour for making bread for the weekend), but all I really want to do on this cold grey day is cuddle up on the couch with a book while my kids sit with me watching "Peter Pan" (this may or may not be what is happening currently, minus the book, plus the computer...).

By all processed food do you mean anything that has in any way shape of form touched a piece of machinery? Like meat? And frozen vegetables? Or anything that has something other than the actual item listed as an ingredient?

I'm baffled and intrigued and a bit worried for your sanity . . . but only because I can't fathom taking the time to make spaghetti sauce without 5 cans of tomato sauce.

Cutting out processed foods is going to be such a great thing, so hard though! Love you Cat!

Have you gone WAPF? I remember reading a fb status with you talking about broth, and I've been curious ever since.

PS I think I might actually be using OD again. Can't say for sure, because then I'd totally jinx it. But maybe.

And also, I miss you.
