My kids have begun to think I’m crazy.
I quit buying bread from the store about a month ago. Did you know that almost every brand of bread at our grocery store has high fructose corn syrup? I had a really hard time finding one that didn’t. And when I did it was $3.00 a loaf. So, I started making homemade bread. We love it. I found a great recipe for sandwich bread. You can read my recipe here.
Last week, we joined a herd share. For a small start up fee and a monthly maintenance fee we are now getting a gallon and a half of raw milk every week. My kids love it. We all actually think it is delicious. And we are not getting the hormones and antibiotics that are in store bought milk. I was buying organic milk for awhile before this and it was almost $8 a gallon. This is cheaper and better. We get to see the cows it came from when we go pick it up. How cool is that?
So, anyway, we are slowly changing the way we eat. I’m tired of all of the GMO’s, antibiotics and growth hormones that are so bad for us.
Today, we went to my Mom’s. Of course the kids acted like I hadn’t fed them in weeks. I think there is something about my Mom’s front door that makes them hungry? Still haven’t figured that one out yet. When we step in the house, they’re starved.
So, she made them sandwiches. She had Butternut wheat bread and Sunbeam white bread. The kids picked the white bread. Now, these are both brands that I used to buy.
And we liked them.
As soon as they took a bite, Bella said “this bread is gross”. It tastes weird. Griffin said, “It tastes like vinegar".
I smelled it and it did smell weird. They were both brand new loaves. It was just all of the chemicals that they haven’t been eating in our bread now smelled funny to them.
They didn’t eat it and said they would just eat my bread when we get home.
Ahh, something I’m doing is finally working. Even though they swore it wouldn’t.
Shh, don’t tell them, I really do know what’s best for them.
