This has been an eventful year and I seemed to have found some time again to get back to cooking from scratch and using food to become as healthy as I (and us as a family) can be.
We are still eating clean, though now little Alex is also eating gluten (wheat) and dairy (casein) free. GFCF for short. We've had him on this before with great results and after seeing our naturopath again for allergies and hyperactivity, we are back on it and I am AMAZED at the results. He's always had GI problems, from his 3rd week of life starting with severe reflux. So it's no wonder he also has intolerances to foods like wheat and dairy. It's a little bit harder to "eat clean" when eating GFCF because a lot of packaged GFCF foods make up for the lack of taste with sugar. That's why we need to cook from scratch more! I can make great GFCF muffins and cookies, and it's way cheaper than buying them.
I've found my way to not only eating clean, but eating grain free. I've always known "low carb" works for me regarding weight loss, but didn't know about the health benefits and the ins and outs of eating raw or cooked vegetables in abundance.
So we are still on our food for health journey and I'm excited to blog about it again!
