Hi, I’m Bev. My family and I decided to start eating healthier in 2001.  Over the years friends have asked for recipes, so I started putting some online.  Most of these recipes are not originals, but they have served me well.  Please keep in mind that the recipes are written for big families who have access to large pots and a 6-quart slow cooker.  If you have neither, you will need to adjust the recipes to meet your needs.

We have learned that milk can cause sinus problems for our children, so we suggest the use of goat milk for young children. Now that our children are older, we use organic unsweetened almond milk (Kirkland brand at Costco).  I purchase some organics. Here is an article to help you prioritize: 12 Foods to Always Buy Organic. We avoid corn syrup and refined sugar.  We use Savannah Gold honey granules to replace white sugar and Sucanat brand evaporated cane juice to replace brown sugar.  These products are found at your local health store, but are purchased more economically through your local food co-op or at breadbeckers.com.

Our family took another major step in 2007 when we purchased an electric grain mill.  We grind our wheat berries (also purchased through breadbeckers.com in our Nutrimill, which gives us even more health benefits. In 2017 we found out that some of our children are sensitive to gluten, so we grind oats, rice, and buckwheat in our NutriBullet.

Cooking was something I had to do, until we started to eat healthy.  Now I actually enjoy it, and I hope you will too.  Feel free to make a comment or ask a question on this site.  We’re all learning together as we strive to keep our temples healthy (1 Corinthians 3:16 & 17).  May you be blessed!
