Have you read Nourishing Traditions yet? That’s the book that started me down my whole traditional foods,/fermented foods journey. It’s very informative and inspiring. But I’ll admit that after I read it, I was a bit overwhelmed at making these sort of changes to our diets.
Cooking traditional style foods can be intimidating to those who are just starting out or who are lacking in the culinary department. Also for moms who are just busy, this style of cooking does take longer. BUT there is help for those of you who feel this is too daunting to take that first step.
There is a blog called Cooking Traditional Foods and right now they are hosting a giveaway for a free year of Menu Mailers and the Recipe Archive. This is a generous giveaway and a great value! I’ve subscribed to KerryAnn’s menu mailers in the past (and I really need to again!) because she not only makes cooking traditional style fun and easy, she does all the leg work of making out your shopping lists for you. She even gives you reminders about taking out your meats to thaw, or soaking your grains/beans. It’s great for those of us who easily get sidetracked.
The other bonus with these mailers is that KerryAnn always puts in gluten-free, casein-free options with each meal. And for those who don’t eat pork, she offers easy substitutions there too! It’s great!
