Simple Foody is a place where I share about our family’s journey to a more traditional diet. I love to eat, cook, and buy groceries (it’s true), but when it gets complicated I get distracted. I need it to be simple. And simple food CAN taste good and be nourishing.
5 years ago I read the book Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon, it forever changed the way I thought about food. I jumped in with both feet and started sprouting, soaking, fermenting, and grinding my own grain.
Then in 2009 my second child became ill and shortly after was diagnosed with Celiac disease. A few months later my eldest was also diagnosed with Celiac disease. I was lost in a world of gluten free. I didn’t know what to do, where to find these gluten free foods, and much less how to prepare them. Nourishing Traditions went out the window. And I welcomed a host of boxed and shrink wrapped gluten free foods into our home to make things easy and palatable.
I’ve been trying to slowly find my way back to a traditional diet, but doing it gluten free. Most of the recipes on Simple Foody, will be gluten free, but not all…hey me and the husband like our gluten!
