The leftover gumbo is calling to us.We are going to add some more sausage and recreate gumbo night. I've been working like a longshoreman around the house today so the thought of leftovers is a welcome one. As you prepare dinner tonight I thought I'd share some thoughts about our food journey.
For the past several years we have been putting a great deal of effort into making better food choices. These choices, we believe have led to our improved health and well-being. Our transition to real food involved avoiding processed foods and shopping for the freshest produce and proteins possible.
In 2005 I opted to leave my retail management career and devote myself to preparing nourishing balanced meals as a homemaker. I've spent countless hours doing the research and legwork it takes to keep our menus delicious and varied. If this was to be a lifestyle change our meals had to be satisfying and fill not only our stomachs but also our souls.
These choices have become habits and really reflect our preferences. The results are evident in our yearly health reports.
