One of the best parts of my weekend is spent reading my Saturday morning "weekend inspirations" from many of my favorite blogs. They list great links to recipes, family, faith, crafting and lots more.
Recently, I have been feeling very burdened with feeding my family better food; whole foods, natural the way God intended us to feed our bodies with nourishment. This burden was spurred on by an accidental placement of Joel Salatin's book, "Folks This Ain't Normal," into my Amazon cart by my dear hubby. What was suppose to be a "wish list" book until I read some of his other books that our library holds, has turned into a diving board, so to say, into very deep, deep waters.
Food is daunting to me. My overwhelming feeling of ineptness, encompasses everything from what to grow, how to grow it, how to harvest it, how to store it, how to cook and process it and what it does to my body. All I know is that I can't keep feeding my body corn, in the form of sugars, syrups, meat, and processed foods, nor can I sit idly by and feed my husband and children this junk. The only way to make an impact is through my pocketbook - I determine what I buy and from where. I have a long uphill learning curve when it comes to food, from garden to table, but the results will be worth it.
So with all this said, I came across a wonderful blog last night after reading (of all magazines) Martha Stewart Living. I'm loving the look of the parsley root fries and cannot wait to try some of her other recipes.
Enjoy your weekend!
