We're going healthy! Wooo!!!!
We discarded 90% of our plastic dish containers. Eventually it'll be 100% but until we restock the kitchen with containers the 10% will stay. However, we'll wash those by hands and not in the dishwasher.
We're going organic in our diet but are not taking meat out. Meat is an important part of our diet. We need the protein that we get from animals. Read 1 Timothy 4:1-3 (KJV)
However, we're trying to stick to only the clean animals listed in Leviticus- not because we're bound by the dietary laws but because we believe there's wisdom in following the Creators diet.
Next weeked will be my first shopping trip to the farmer's market! As well as my first shopping trip to our local orchard who also sells honey! And then in mid June my Azure order will arrive. Know what that means? It means I just took care of a months worth of grocery without going to Walmart!!! Woooo!
Of course when it comes to medicine I'm quick to make something for the girls. So we'll continue using herbs but I'll be more knowledgeable and prepared. At the moment I have no herbs on hand except for the few I have in the garden so at some point, before winter, I'm hoping to have our medicine cabinet stocked up.Oh I forgot that I do have some organic tea for the girls that I picked up on clearance. It's suppose to help them with tummy aches. We haven't had to use this yet. Praise the Lord! At the moment, I have the girls take a spoonful of pure honey daily.
We have some cayenne peppers that are just about ready to be picked. I'm going to use them in a tincture that I'll have my family take daily in the winter.
I'm not sure if I ever updated on the chickens or not? Well, none the less, we got them. They're so cute! And are growing fast! It'll be awhile before we can expect eggs from them so we're ordering fresh farm eggs from Azure and will be freezing them.
I found a local source for raw milk but we'll have to crunch some numbers to see if we can afford this source. When I think about the laws on raw milk it really gets my blood boiling! The goverment has no place telling me what I can and can't drink! Ugh! They are so stepping over the lines! God has a system set up. The government is to judge- righteously. To punish the wicked. It's not the governments place to feed the poor (food stamps/WIC) or to provide medical assistance to the poor (medicaid/medicare) or to indoctrinate, I mean educate, children (public school). It's the churches place to take care of the poor (read Acts). It's the parents place to educate the children (read Deut. 6). The system is out of whack!
Moving on, let's see......
We're aiming to go natural in all our products (except toilet paper) so we've switched to cloth diapers (as you know) and will be switching to natural deodorant, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, etc. These things are on my list of things to learn to make.
Some good sources for you to check out
This is actually a 4 part series so make sure to listen to all of it.
I'm going off memory here but when you see a young girl about 16 yrs of age named Caitlyn, at least I think her name is Caitlyn, then you'll want to skip ahead about 3 minutes. The reason you'll want to skip ahead is because she'll start talking about how bad the magazines and what not make her feel about herself and as she's talking the editor of the documentary makes a million low grade porn pictures pop up. By that I mean the typical magazine pictures- a woman posing in her undergarments.
