For years I have been very conscious of the foods I feed my family, I have tried and failed at times to keep away from packaged, processed foods, but sometimes the convenience and time-saving wins out.
I have given a lot of thought over the last couple of weeks about how I would like to go 1 week without any processed foods, making absolutely everything from scratch, not just some of it. Of course I need a plan for me to do this as I still work 3 part-time jobs and have lots of other school and sporting commitments that I have to factor in to make this work.
At the end of the week I will know what worked and what didn't and hopefully be able to continue with this with a firm plan intact.
Today, the kids are all back at school, I'm catching up on all the things I didn't get done while they've been on holidays and I will be sorting through recipes and making that all important plan.
I already make:
dinner every night is from scratch
I should say, I'm not going to churn butter, mill flour or make cheese and I'm sure there are plenty of things I will use already gathered, grinded or made, but I will:
make yoghurt from scratch
all of our bread
french onion soup
there will be a lot more to add to this list, this is what I came up with off the top of my head.
