September 15 Know Your Ingredients
Since we have been working to Eat Rainbows and consume healthy foods a natural outcome has been an increased awareness of what is in our food. I have started trying to purchase fresh, local, organic, or natural foods whenever possible. We have also tried our hand at making several of the items we usually purchase prepared. A perfect example of this is a Peanut Butter and Jelly Toasted sandwich we learned to make. It is so tasty and extremely easy to make. We also have had success at making our own Peanut Butter and Bread. Not all for the same meal yet but I think we could pull that off if we staged it properly. One small change like making freezer jam; baking bread; or grinding peanut butter will help you see how easy it is to change your eating habits. Audrey and the entire family are working at this right now. What are some changes you have made to start eating healthier?
