Going Au Naturel

From scratch.

It’s how I grew up. She made it look easy, and I know now that it wasn’t, but my mom skipped the frozen food, the tv-dinners, and the premade sauces and made everything from the roots up. Don’t worry, we still drank from concentrate juices, and we still ate white (gasp) bread and rice, at least until she discovered those weren’t great either.

So why all the extra work? Was it just a waste of time?

The simple answer is no.

The way foods come to us; in their most natural state, is typically the best state.

Here’s why.
