Clean Eating Street Food: Israeli Falafel

Traditional Israeli falafel recipe

This recipe came about after some dear friends of ours invited us over for dinner.  Her mother was in town from Israel and was preparing a traditional Israeli meal for her homesick daughter and we were invited to enjoy the meal with them…what an honor!  My husband {being very picky at the time} was very [...]

Flashback Friday: My Whole Food Journey 4.25.10

 This is a post from almost three years ago.  I have been rereading some of the posts I wrote here in the beginning – My Whole Food Journey- as a way to reevaluate what I am doing now and what I could be doing differently.  A lot has happened with my family in the past [...]

Looking Back and Forging a Plan for 2012

367-1

I made the decision to feed my family differently about two years ago.  Coincidentally, that coincides with the fact that my son was around 9 months of age and had just begun to eat table food.  Coincidence?  Ok, not really.  In fact, my son, Judah, was the reason I began to look a little harder [...]

New Year’s Noshing

Holiday-Entertaining

New Year’s Eve is creeping up on us and for many of us that means entertaining.  Some of you may be hosting the party while others will be bringing a dish to contribute.  This year we’ll actually be spending the evening with family…relaxing.  But, that doesn’t mean we won’t be eating our share of party [...]

Eating locally supports local business, minimizes air pollution, and brings fresher food to [...]

What are GMO’s

Surely by now you have heard the letters G-M-O strung together in some way or another, in the media {print, television newscast, or online}.  It is a hot topic in the food industry and everyone is talking about it.  But what does it mean?  And, even better, what should it mean to you?  I didn’t [...]

Organic on a Budget: Scoring Cheap Fruits and Veggies

If you’re making the switch to more wholesome foods like my family has been doing, you may have realized a change in your budget. If you were buying tons of processed foods and take out, you might have seen that you’re spending less. But, more than likely, if you’ve been doing “pretty well” before, using [...]

Pantry Challenge

A funny thing happened.  I was thinking about how I’m trying to get on a tighter budget and how much food is already in this house.  I decided I needed to start making meals out of my pantry and freezer and try to purchase as little groceries as possible for as long as possible and [...]

My Whole Food Journey 11.17.10

It has been a while since I’ve done one of these posts!  I have shared a lot about the changes my family has made up until now little by little.  And, now my trips to the grocery store are easier and it seems like old hat.  It isn’t so difficult to find exactly what I [...]
