Food Planning Principles

As the school year comes into sight, many families schedules shift to a different routine. Our next few newsletters will cover meal planning strategies to help keep your family eating healthy through the school year.

 

Paramount Principle: Eat whole, naturally-raised foods. Whenever possible, produce should be organically grown and animal products should be raised on an organic diet without added hormones or antibiotics.

 

It is important to cook foods in a way that is easily digestible and nutritionally beneficial to the body. Use traditional fats and oils such as butter, lard, extra virgin olive oil, and coconut oil. Other oils such as canola, vegetable oil, or soy oils are likely to be grown with chemicals and genetically modified.

 

Lacto-fermented foods such as kombucha, pickles, and kraut are a good addition to every meal. They aid in the production of healthy gut flora and provide the body with necessary minerals.

 

Sprouts and bone broths are also a great way to supplement the diet with healing nutrients and minerals.

 

Stay tuned for our upcoming newsletters! We will cover staple items to keep on hand in your pantry and how to prepare healthy meals with minimal time and effort.
