How I became a “Granola Hippy”

The term “Granola Hippy” is what my husband so lovingly refers to me as these days.  It wasn't always this way.  I used to be so concerned about fat-free everything.  I counted calories, we avoided beef.  I used to drink Slim Fast!  I was far from granola!  While I certainly feel like my switch to a healthier way of living was over night, it actually started sooner than I thought.  

When my son was born and it was time to feed him solid foods, I knew that I wanted to make my own.  I don't feel this was for nutritional reasons, at first.  It was purely financial.  Why would I pay a gazillion dollars for a jar of bananas when I can mash my own banana?  As I continued to make my own baby food, I realized that I wanted to make more things from scratch.  At this point things really started to snowball for me.  I wanted to grow my own food, I wanted chickens, I wanted to bake my own bread!  

As I started to research all of these things, I stumbled upon the world of Real Food and it simply blew my mind!  Healthy fats are good for us?  I have to soak my grain?  Fermented what?  This whole new way of thinking spoke to me and I had to know more!  

I read every book I could get my hands on.  I scoured the internet for Real Food blogs that could teach me new skills! I took several e-courses to get me started on things I knew nothing about!  I loved it all, but I was definitely trying to drink from a fire hose.  

These days I know what kombucha is!  I make my own broth, ferment many foods, and value where my food comes from.  When I was searching for information on Real Food and traditional food practices, I spent MANY hours searching the internet hopping from site to site gathering bits and pieces.  It was overwhelming to say the least.  Where do I start, how do I begin?

If someone would have told me I could have a wealth of knowledge about Real Food and healthy living delivered directly to my email inbox in the form of books and e-courses I would have thought I had died and gone to heaven information heaven!
