Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop!

Change is in the air. Public school kids go back to school this week. My family is even falling into a routine and schedule that works for us. Don’t tell anyone, but we’ve made it on time to everywhere we needed to be this week. It’s like the Twilight Zone or something. One big change for me is I’ve decided to change the way we eat. I’m not saying we won’t still enjoy comfort foods from time to time (I’m not an all or none kind of person), but we had come to rely too heavily on convenience foods. It’s my fault. When I let myself get overwhelmed, I go for the easy solution. Unfortunately, eating crap food all of the time makes me more sluggish, which makes me feel even more overwhelmed. It’s a vicious cycle.

So I’m getting up early and making a healthy breakfast for Hubby and I. I’m cutting way back on starches, sugars, and dairy. I’m even drinking my coffee black. *gasp* So expect some new recipes soon. Don’t worry, I’ll still have lots of the old favorites too. Last night’s dinner was pasta salad with feta cheese, but it was also loaded with vegetables. Not trying to go crazy, just trying to do better.

Now on to the hop…

Homestead Blog Hop will take place every Wednesday and is for all things homesteading: real food recipes, farm animals, crafts, DIY, how-to’s, gardening, anything from-scratch, natural home/health, self-sufficiency, self-reliance, natural remedies, essential oils, & more! Basically anything related to homesteading.
