At the beginning of our family’s real food journey, I went from a confident cook to suddenly feeling completely intimidated by my kitchen.
I stood at my pantry looking at my Crisco, white sugar, vegetable oil, Velveeta, and cans of cream soups wondering how I’d possibly re-learn to cook “the real food way.” Even worse, I worried about how I’d afford the high cost of real food.
I worried over how I’d ever get my little boys to eat healthy food. After all, they were used to pop-tarts and white pasta. How willing would they be to try new, better food?
I started our real food changes by tearfully throwing out all the junk. Then I decided to try making Homemade Chicken Nuggets with wholesome ingredients. Maybe that would be a good way to transition my family?
Ah-ha! My kids gobbled them up. Maybe this real food thing wouldn’t be so bad?
As it turns out, I learned quickly that real food is just…food. Thirteen years later I’ve confirmed that it actually isn’t hard to make a real food meal because well, have you ever sliced an apple? Washed a strawberry? Tossed a salad? Cooked a roast?
Real food is just food.
It’s easy to prepare and much to our surprise – it is actually affordable! Healthy food doesn’t actually cost more. I proved it here.
