I was speaking to a friend the other day and she mentioned that my website was "SCARY". (Don't worry- I never take offense).
She went on to say that many of the recipes were really HARD and she wanted to have her family eat better..
BUT... this way of eating seemed too scary.
I couldn't help but smile to myself...because I have used that same descriptive word when I look at how the majority of people eat in this country. People's diets are SCARY! Fast food multiple times a week....Kids diets consisting of processed meat, cheese and dairy with very few foods that are ALIVE. Dr. Joel Fuhrman has done the research: Only 7% of children's diets in this country consist of fruits and vegetables and 40% of that is made up of POTATOES (french fries & potato chips).
I have to admit there are times that I have thought to EASE UP a little on the recipes. Possibly try to make them easier for our "NEWBIE" guests by adding a small amount of dairy or meat...
But I just can't. It's too scary!
I want to admit that I don't eat like a VETERAN MOMMY some of the time...and neither do my children. But this website is where I turn to for HEALTHY, GUILT-FREE, Disease-Proofing Recipes. And it might be scary to some...but for me (and thousands of our readers I'm sure will agree) This website is anything but SCARY. It brings me PEACE in an ever confusing world of unhealthy food and increasing disease.
Want to know a SUPER YUMMY RECIPE? It's been on our site for awhile- but I have to highlight it. I made this tonight and I don't think I have ever made it better. So I adjusted our recipe to what I did tonight. SUPER YUMMY! All my children devoured it- makes me a happy momma!
Hope you ENJOY!
