We are happy to welcome you all to our dinner table (or breakfast table, or lunch table or snack...yeah, we're ALWAYS eating around here)!

I am excited to share some our recipes and menu ideas. Let me begin with a little disclaimer...we eat a little different than most folks. We have some health, allergy, and moral issues we are sorting out, which has led to great knowledge and creativity in the planning of our meals... you'll see what I mean when I start posting. :) We mostly eat a plant-based diet, and try to incorporate as many fresh fruits and veggies as possible. What does this mean, you ask? To answer simply, we tend to follow a whole foods diet, eating mostly fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, beans, and whole grains as the majority of our diet (with some other "food groups" thrown in moderately- we are only human!). It's tastier than it sounds, I promise!

What is a whole food diet? It's basically eating food the way that God intended- in its natural, unprocessed, unrefined, state. Eat a potato, instead of a bag of fried potato chips. Eat fruit instead of bottled juices filled with syrups and sugars. Just eat REAL food...and the fresher the better!

Please, let me know what you think!!
